  • THE ADVANCEMENT OF REGENERATIVE MEDICINE

    12:00 pm

    Speaker - Dr. Tom Kessinger

    Until recently, treatment options for people with degenerative conditions were limited. Not many years ago, steroid injections, prescription medications, and joint replacement surgeries were often the only treatment options offered to patients. Now, in Vancouver, Washington, you can receive stem cell injections at Pain Relief Partners! Research shows that stem cell treatment is beneficial for osteoarthritis, neuropathy, chronic pain, disc bulge and herniation, spinal stenosis, joint pain, and symptoms associated with autoimmune disorders, fibromyalgia, neurodegenerative diseases, and COPD. Stem cell injections work with the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Unlike treatments that simply address the symptoms, stem cell therapy actually promotes repair of the body, restoring degenerated tissue.

    For 10 years, I have consistently focused on patient care and patient outcomes. I work hard to educate patients about their condition and teach strategies for improving health. I love to see patients get the right treatment and find the relief they are seeking, and I diligently strive to improve patient outcomes through innovation and education. I specialize in spine related conditions and diseases of the nervous system. I have seen so many patients avoid surgeries, stop using pain medications, and get their lives back, and it has been very rewarding. We treat conditions such as neuropathy, sciatica, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, herniated and bulging discs, and osteoarthritis. We help patients reduce pain without drugs or surgery and are assisting in helping stop the opioid drug epidemic. I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors, reading, learning, and skiing.
