Advanced regenerative medicine is a field that’s been allowed to grow at astonishing rates over the years. It’s opened the door to numerous medical advancements which have helped many patients with a wide variety of health problems. Individual results can vary, but the possibilities of regenerative procedures seem almost limitless as scientists continue to learn more about the anatomy of the human body and its sheer potential.

Doctor and Patient

For some patients, regenerative medicine sits at the intersection of hope, despair, desperation and false promises. This places an added burden to provide the most ethical care possible. Patient's often come to us when conventional treatments have failed. Advanced Regenerative Therapies believe that patients must be informed and it is recommended that our patients read the articles enclosed before coming to us.

We don't promise results.  We don't want to offer false hope. But we have seen some very encouraging outcomes to otherwise unsolved problems.  Our only promise is that we will make decisions based upon a combination of evidence based medicine, personal experience and basic science.  We offer treatment plans and patient education and ask the patient to be an active participant in the decision making. 

As part of our ethical code, we want our patients to know up front that:

There is evidence or a good rationale that our treatments will be of some benefit.  We believe the benefits outweigh the risks. Our treatments are unproven for many of the problems we see.

We use clinical guidelines from national organizations.

We use our own clinical judgement.

We insist on a detailed informed consent.

We present out pricing up front at the time of the consultation.

We describe the risks and side effects.

We outline alternative treatments that are medically available.

 We offer links to starting research and established protocols.

We post articles by the FDA and Consumer reports. We also have these available in our office. 

If we fail to satisfy any concerns from the last above or if you have any other concerns, active patients are given Dr. Meglin's cell phone number.

They are encouraged to call with any medical questions (please do not call for scheduling issues as Dr. Meglin does not get involved with this aspect of the practice.)

Our Practice

 

Our Research

Regenerative Medicine is a rapidly evolving field. To ensure we stay at the leading edge, we conduct research and are currently enrolling hospital patients in a study designed to evaluate the tissue adhesive properties of PRP. We are studying the benefits of sealing biopsy tracks with PRP and Fibrin Gel. We are also working with industry to bring several different products to the FDA for IND approval.

Our Training

We are regularly attending conferences, and are continually training with accredited organizations to ensure we are bringing our patients the latest techniques and technology. Our relationships with vendors and suppliers enable us to offer our patients the best products and techniques. We have access to a wide variety of materials and customize our selections based upon what we feel will best meet your individual needs.

Precision Counts

It isn’t enough to place the regenerative medicine treatments in the general area of disease. The closer the cell signaling biologic compounds can be placed to the problem area, the better. Dr Meglin has abundant experience with very precise needle placement using x ray, ultrasound and CT guidance.
