Regenerative medicine has received praise and criticism in equal measure. Most opponents of the relatively new field of medicine base their arguments on religious beliefs. However, proponents of regenerative medicine such as Canada’s Dr. Cameron Clokie believe that the area, if well researched, has a potential to revolutionize the healthcare sector.
In fact, he is at the forefront of researching about regenerative medicine and applying it to solve medical problems such as lost body parts as a result of tumors. Notably, Dr. Clokie focusses on using regenerative medicine to rebuild missing jaw bones occasioned by benign tumor among other causes. The retired academician is currently in charge of Induce Biologics Inc. Learn more about Cameron Clokie: https://www.ratemds.com/doctor-ratings/1215496/Dr-Cameron-Clokie-Toronto-ON.html
So far, Dr. Cameron Clokie has numerous achievements under his belt. In the early 2000’s, he used regenerative medicine to reconstruct part of Peter Russel’s jaw bone. Russel, a retired banker, lost part of his mandible to a benign tumor.
Crunchbase revealed that although Cameron Clokie understood the existence of traditional surgeries aimed at rebuilding lost body parts, Russel chose to take a gamble with regenerative medicine. Russel stated that his primary fear arose from the thought of uncontrollable bone growth. Nevertheless, he requested Dr. Clokie to administer a regenerative medicine procedure on his jaw bone.
The outcome of the surgery delighted not only Russel but also Dr. Clokie who uses Russel’s case to advance his agenda on regenerative medicine. For example, Dr. Clokie presented Russel’s case alongside that of another patient, Ms. McFarlane in a past University of Toronto conference.
Ms. McFarlane and Russel had one thing in common: they were both victims of benign tumor leading to lost jawbones. However, while he opted for regenerative medicine, she chose the usual surgeries of rebuilding lost jaw bones.
Russel and McFarlane had different experiences. Surgery was performed on the former which took only four hours whereas the latter stayed for over 20 hours in the operating room.
The outcomes too varied considerably, Russel spent just two days in the hospital before leaving to embark on his usual life, but Ms. McFarlane spent over two weeks in the hospital. At the time of the conference, she was scheduled to attend another surgery.
