When I start to talk to people about Regenerative Medicine, I typically get the look. Heck, I must admit when I first heard of Regenerative Medicine, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cells, I likely gave that look, too. Then I visited a clinic where I saw X-Rays of knees of precious people who had bone-on-bone, degenerated joints. They were told they would have to face knee replacement. I saw these same peoples’ X-Rays six months to a year later, after receiving PRP and stem cells, and there was joint space along with reports of pain reduction. I saw people in pain that were happy while they were receiving treatment because they were getting better. The hope that had nearly been lost was being turned into life changing results!
I have been a physical therapist for twenty three years now and I have seen a lot. But what I saw offered under the umbrella of Regenerative Medicine set me back on my heels. And I am telling you IT IS FOR REAL!
The definition of faith is believing without seeing. I am from Missouri, the Show-Me State, and I wanted to see it. When I started this venture I did what any other human being would do…I googled regenerative medicine. WOW! I saw names like Andrews Orthopedic Institute, Stanford University, University of Southern California and The Mayo Clinic to mention a few. All of the cutting edge institutions are getting involved. If you are in the medical field and you aren’t looking at this as a very real option, then you are behind the curve ball. And as our name sake at the Ozzie Smith Center would tell you, you have to get out in front of the curve. If you are looking for very REAL results with a problem you or a loved one is going through, look at Regenerative Medicine as an option. We are for REAL, and so are our results!
