LAS VEGAS, Jan. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- R3 Stem Cell successfully completed regenerative procedures on seven military veterans recently as part of the R3 Heroes Program. The stem cell therapies were performed at no cost to any of the Veterans, who were all nominated by friends and family members.
"As the nation's leader in regenerative medicine therapies, we feel it's important to give back to those individuals who have made such a contribution to our freedom. Therefore, we created the R3 Heroes program and accepted Veterans with several types of medical conditions for regenerative therapies. We'll be doing it every two months!," said R3 CEO and Founder David Greene, MD, MBA.
Veterans suffering from such conditions as degenerative arthritis, neuropathy, COPD, heart failure and migraines were selected for the regenerative cell therapies. The procedures incorporate growth factors, stem cells, exosomes and other regenerative cells which work in concert with one's body to help repair damage.
Friends and family nominated the Veterans, who came from all branches of the Military and served in various capacities. While some were local to Las Vegas, others traveled from Florida, North Carolina, Utah, Texas and California. Patients in the Heroes program pay nothing for their procedures, no matter how much of the regenerative biologic is used.
The procedures were performed in conjunction with the R3 Stem Cell Training Course, where providers participate in two full days of lectures and viewing procedures. "We want providers to be able to see our Las Vegas doctors performing real procedures on real Veterans who truly deserve a free procedure. They all have stories that are so emotional and moving, it makes the experience so memorable for all involved."
Added Dr. Greene, "Over the past five years, our R3 Centers of Excellence nationwide have performed over 10,000 successful procedures. We have not experienced any significant adverse events, and patients' lives are often changed with the therapies. The stem cell therapy in Las Vegas for the Veterans is performed by Double Board Certified physicians who are compassionate, knowledgeable and experts in the procedures."
