In episode #136, Dr. Jill Carnahan speaks with Dr. Chadwick Prodromos about the exciting developments in stem cell treatment and how it is revolutionizing our approach to disease and aging. Stem cells have the unique ability to develop into any type of cell in the body, making them a promising tool for repairing and regenerating damaged tissue.
In recent years, stem cell therapies have shown great promise in treating a wide range of conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and even heart disease. Dr. Prodromos, an expert in the field of stem cell treatment, shares his insights on the latest research and how stem cell treatment is changing the way we think about treating and preventing chronic diseases.
Dr. Chadwick Prodromos is an international leader in the use of stem cell and platelet rich plasma treatment. He has performed more than three thousand stem cell and platelet rich plasma treatments for arthritis, tendon injuries and related disorders as part of a prospective study that is the largest such study by an Orthopaedic Surgeon in existence to our knowledge.
Dr Prodromos received his Bachelor’s degree with honors from Princeton University and his MD degree from the Johns Hopkins Medical School. He served his surgical internship at the University of Chicago; his Orthopaedic Surgery residency at Rush University and his fellowship in Orthopaedics and Sportsmedicine at the Harvard medical school and Massachusetts General Hospital. He is board certified in Orthopaedic Surgery and is editor of a major textbook for orthopaedic surgeons on the ACL.
He is a founding member of the American College of Regenerative Medicine, and chairman of its institutional Review Board. He served as assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at Rush University for 27 years before stepping back to focus on his foundation and stem cell work.
