The purpose of Regenerative Medicine is to regain normal tissue for structure as well as function. When the body cannot mount a response sufficient to repair itself, a patient's own stem cells or proteins in the plasma are harvested, processed, and injected into the injured area to encourage growth and repair of tissues. Studies have shown that regenerative procedures are effective in treating patients both with acute injuries, as well as chronic disease such as arthritis. Use of stem cells, protein rich plasma (PRP) and the patient's own proteins can be used to relieve pain and improve structure and function in an office setting, by providing grown factors to jumpstart the bodies own regenerative capabilities.

Stem cell treatments do not rely on tissue from donors. The patient's own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is harvested from a small sample of peripheral blood. The blood is processed immediately and injected under ultrasound into exact areas in the hip, knee, shoulder, ankle or wrist. Stem cells contain factors that reverse enzymes causing cartilage damage to prevent further destruction and encourage new growth. Sometimes stem cells from the patient are harvested from the hip bone, or purified prepared cells are purchased from a lab.
Arthritis is the most common disease process of human joints. In the United States, nearly 100 million people are affected. Until now, there have only been therapies to relieve pain and increase function, but these treatments do not slow or stop the progression of the joint destruction. Many times, there is nothing left to do but replace the joint with an artificial one. This requires major surgery. Stem cells are cells that can change into almost any cell type in the body, depending on where they are placed. When they are placed in a damaged area, such as the shoulder or knee or hip, they initiate cell repair to help the body heal the diseased joint.
Protein-rich plasma, (PRP) is also used to stimulate hair grown in male pattern baldness. The patient's own blood is drawn from the arm, and immediately processed. A series of injections with a tiny tiny needle is performed in the scalp. This has been effective in regrowth of hair in both men and woman with premature hair loss.

We’re Here for You
Do you treat patients with severe health problems?
Yes, I can. I have in the past, performed major surgery on critically ill patients. However, currently I limit my practice to Regenerative Medicine as well as Addiction Medicine, which I am also Board Certified to treat. I do not accept patients for family practice issues,
Do you help treat terminal or chronic illness?
Yes I do treat terminal illness. I work for local hospice company in the days that I am not at my private office. I visit these patients in their homes, as most are too ill to come to the office. I care for their wounds, help with their nutrition, and give oversight to the nurses and aides who care for them. This is a very rewarding side of my practice.
What will my first session be like?
Lots of talking and listening. In the initial consultation, I will address the issues you bring. If this involves an injured or disease joint, we will discuss the possible treatment options. If your issues are cosmetic, we will discuss the treatment options, the cost, and what you can expect. We will also discuss complications you could have and how we can both optimize your results.
