You may pick up on the theme of this Blog either in Ecclesiastes 3:1 or by listening to the music of Pete Seeger so Turn! Turn! Turn! over the holiday period. No matter your preference, I will be moving my offices to 618 West Fulton Street, Chicago, Illinois 60661 as of January 1st, 2023.
The good news is that I am not too old to change and stay up to date; actually, to stay at the forefront of Evidence-Based, Regenerative Medicine. The new setting will allow me to better control the escalating cost of Cellular Orthopedics. Equally important, I will be better able to introduce advancing technology and update our outcomes documentation methodology. Of course, our team with whom I have worked over the past many years will remain intact.
Patients will soon receive an announcement in the mail as to the change. Since our team is still working out the details, until further notice, our phone number will not change. I will post updates in the next several blogs regarding details such as parking, etc. Our treatment options will also increase as we are adding a new form for micronized adipose tissue to treatment options starting in mid-January. Additionally, aware that some patients are traveling out of the country for Stem Cell treatments, I will also be able to provide those opportunities in my new Chicago office; so, you will no longer need to travel offshore for the advanced treatment of an arthritic joint. At the same time, our updated biologic interventions will now offer increases in platelet-derived growth factors, A2M, cytokines, fibrinogen, IRAP, and VEGF.
While all this is taking place, we are exploring the location of a north suburban satellite office. When that location has been finalized, the announcement will be posted on the Blog or you will learn more when you schedule an appointment. At the time of your initial appointment in the Fulton Street setting, you will note that the proximity to the office space marked Chicago Arthritis on the Northeast corner of Fulton and Des Plains Streets. The proximity to a Rheumatologist will allow for a more comprehensive overview of each patient prior to and following a Regenerative Cellular and Biologic intervention. It is important to differentiate for instance between inflammatory arthritis and Osteoarthritis before providing informed consent for evidence-based joint intervention. Medical management of arthritis with prescription anti-inflammatories has a place, as does physical therapy, in helping a patient deal with impairments affecting many joints.
Until December 31, 2022, I will remain in my existing offices. To schedule an appointment, continue to call (312) 475-1893. You may visit my website at www.sheinkopmd.com.
