Too many times, I have had to say no to patients seeking help with their limitations from an arthritic joint because of the leading co-morbidity, obesity. One may define obesity in various ways. In general, a Body Mass Index of over 32.5 excludes a patient from the opportunity to enjoy symptom relief and return to an active lifestyle following a stem cell intervention. The heavier patient will never have known whether a Bone Marrow Aspiration Concentrate might or could have possibly stopped the progression of arthritis and influenced cartilage regeneration. Having worked with a physical therapist over the past 15 years, we have developed an intervention that just might extend the benefits of Stem Cell intervention for arthritis to those who may need it most. Recognizing that obesity or for that matter, an excess of 20 pounds may have an adverse impact on your joints, we are now able to offer a methodology that is a scientific solution for healthy weight loss and overall fitness. Healthcare professionals combining fitness training, nutritional counseling, motivation management and diagnostic testing lead the program.
From now on, when you call my office and inquire as to whether you may be a candidate for Regenerative Cellular Orthopedics, we may still ask the three critical questions pertaining to age, height and weight but we won’t say no. The Revolution Physical Therapy/Weight Loss process is based on Fitness-Nutrition-Motivation. It includes Biomarker Measurements and Outcome Results. Most important, the program is covered by insurance so there is no out of pocket expense and may be overseen by remote access; you don’t have to live here.
Assume you call and inquire about stem cells for your arthritis. I will first examine you in my office and determine if you meet the criteria that would give you the best chance of a successful outcome with a stem cell intervention. If you don’t meet the inclusion criteria, you won’t be turned away; you will be given the opportunity to meet the inclusion criteria over a three or even six month Revolution experience and try again. There is no downside for a patient, as your indemnification will accept the financial obligations. At the same time, while you are meeting the inclusion criteria that will allow you to qualify for stem cells, you will see a marked reduction in your medication needs for hypertension, diabetes, etc., etc., etc. There is no down side here; only the opportunity to enjoy the potential benefits of stem cells: Pain relief, improved function, increased motion, changing the progression of arthritis and perhaps, regenerating cartilage
