Tristram C. Conley, Operations Director
Having grown up in a small Minnesota town, Tris has always had a love for life, people and the outdoors. This combination has served him well in his position as Operations Director for Sanoviv Medical Institute, which requires a variety of special skills in dealing with different cultures, personalities, and individual needs to ensure that the Sanoviv experience offers the best and most positive outcomes for every guest.
After attending college at Florida Tech University in Orlando, he moved to Colorado where he spent several years pursuing dual careers, one in the construction industry and the other as a musician and actor in local and national performing arts companies, traveling extensively throughout the United States. During the late 1980s and 1990s, Tris successfully helped build a family business in the import/export wholesale gift industry in increasing positions of responsibility, culminating as president and chief executive officer of the company. He credits the growth of the company to its total focus on customer service and creating a close personal relationship and enduring bond between customers, sales representative and the home office.
Tris’s introduction to Sanoviv was as a patient for a three-week medical program and it was during this stay, nearly a decade ago, that he became a devoted disciple of the “total person.” integrative, proactive approach to health care unique to Sanoviv. The physical and emotional benefits he gained as a patient set the stage for a new, exciting career beginning with a position in guest services at Sanoviv and advancing to his current assignment as Operations Director, working closely with the founder, president, medical staff, guests and all departments in the facility. He cherishes the opportunity to share and serve Dr. Wentz’s vision of a world free from the pain and suffering of degenerative disease and considers his involvement in fulfilling Sanoviv’s mission as the “gift” of a lifetime. It is his firm belief that Sanoviv offers a life-changing opportunity for every guest who enrolls in any of its extensive, state-of-the-art programs.

General Director of Sanoviv Medical Institute
Dr. Franco received his medical degree from the “Escuela Superior de Medicina” and the “Instituto Politécnico Nacional.” He also did his postgraduate work in the “Instituto Nacional de Pediatría” where he studied Pediatrics.
A medical doctor with over 30 years of experience, fulfilling his main goal of helping people be healthier, Dr. Franco was interested in expanding his horizons and learning more ways of treating disease.
Ever since he was introduced to Dr. Wentz, he has been a major supporter of the vision and dream of creating what is now Sanoviv.
“Working at Sanoviv was a great opportunity to keep learning how to improve the way I treat patients. This is an impeccable environment, with great staff to work with”, recalls Dr. Franco.
Our general director is a perfect example of the spirit of Sanoviv and our approach towards our patients: “There is always something to learn, there is always something to improve for the benefit of our guests.”
