Many people who experience pain in their hips, knees, shoulders, elbows, and feet will frequently end up with surgery. Most people do not realize; however, they have alternative treatment available to them now in the exciting world of stem cell regeneration. Dr John Herzog, a Raymond resident just may have the answer for you.
Dr. Herzog’ is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with 40 years’ experience. He’s performed over 10,000 surgeries - everything from replacing knees hips and shoulders to reconstructing trauma victims. For the past 10 years he has focused exclusively on regenerating torn and degenerating tissues and joints with advanced stem cell procedures.
Herzog’ says the basic problem is that when joints start to degenerate, or rotator cuff begins to tear is that there is poor or no blood supply to the area that’s damaged. The beauty of using own body, is that it produces its own custom compounding pharmacy, otherwise known as your own stem cells. This process is much like robbing Peter to pay Paul by generating new blood supply.
For example, in plantar fasciitis or tennis elbow the blood supply is very poor in this region of your body and cannot get the nutrients, oxygen or stem cells that it takes to repair it. What the doctor does is essentially taking stem cells from your blood, your bone marrow, or your fat and - with a centrifuge process that purifies the blood supply, separately stem cells and platelets. Once it is purified and separated, it is injected into the area where the pain persists. This regrows the blood vessels and creates a new irrigation system to repair tissue naturally. Aging and disease are a result of poor blood supply.
Dr. Herzog is a third-generation osteopathic physician which he states with great pride. “As an osteopath, you are a holistic doctor,” he stated. “We know how to use a knife, medicines, and our hands to improve their patients’ lives.” Utilizing osteopathic manipulation is also an important part of Dr. Herzog’s successful formula.
In fact, Windham Chiropractor, Dr Roy Moore received a PRP treatments from Dr. Herzog and had a few years and had a positive and fast healing experience. “I was experiencing pain in my right elbow and I was trying to treat it for about six months without success,” Moore explained. “I went to Dr. Herzog who performed PRP on my elbow. It took about two to three weeks before it was completely back to normal, but I have not had any pain since that treatment a couple of years ago. I would call it a 100% success and I would highly recommend exploring these alternatives if one is feeling pain and may considering surgery.”
The future of medicine is utilizing your own body’s custom compounding pharmacy that is your stem cells and Dr. Herzog promises to remain on the cutting edge of stem cell treatment and utilizes the technology of your own body. He claims he plans on being an active osteopath well into my 70s possibly my 80s Dr. Herzog states with the help from my stem cells. “Who knows,” he said with a smile, “There’s a guy in Tennessee that’s in his 90s and he still does brain surgery.”
