Problems We Solve
“I’ve been told that I’m not a candidate for surgery.”
We hear this frequently. Perhaps you are too young for a surgery? Too old? Perhaps your health is not good enough to undergo a major surgery? Perhaps your condition does not fit into the parameters of a ‘good candidate’. Stem cell therapy is not always successful, but it has an excellent safety record. There are few side effects and fewer risks. At Docere Clinics, we never perform a stem cell procedure if we do not think there is any chance it will help. If we think the chance it will help is slim, we will tell you, so you can make the decision that is right for you.
“I’ve been told that that I am a candidate for surgery,
but that surgery can make my pain worse.”
This is especially true for spinal surgeries, such as fusion. Surgery can help, but it can also make it
permanently much worse. A more conservative approach is to try stem cell therapy first. If it doesn’t
help, you can always have the surgery later. Once you have the surgery, however, you can’t “un-have it”. If
we feel that surgery indeed is your best first option, we will let you know.
“I’ve been told that I am a candidate for surgery and that the
surgery has an excellent satisfaction rate and is low-risk”
This may be true, and if surgery feels right to you, you should do it. However, if you wish to keep the
surgical option as truly the “last resort”, then it is frequently reasonable to try stem cell therapy first.
“My condition is mild to moderate; it is too early to consider surgery,
but I don’t want to ever get to that point.”
More and more, we hear these words. Since 2002, we have helped many people delay or avoid surgery.
It is always easier to treat someone before the structural damage becomes severe.
