Preparing, writing, and submitting an article for publication in a peer-reviewed journal is no small feat. It takes hundreds of hours and there is no guarantee that the paper will be accepted. Often times there are revisions and resubmissions that take months. That explains why most Orthobiologic clinics and some universities do not publish. The Centeno-Schultz Clinic, on the other hand, is committed to solidifying and advancing the field of Interventional Orthopedics. In fact, we were the first clinic in the world to inject bone marrow-derived stem cells into the lumbar spine. This occurred 15 years ago and we never looked back. Our publications account for more than 40% of the published literature in the world on the use of stem cells in common orthopedic conditions. Here is a list of our publications. By taking the time to review the literature, innovate new procedures, and validate the results we can offer patients the very best clinical outcomes. The COVID pandemic has taught us that change and innovation are essential. The same is true for your health and prosperity.
A new publication from the Centeno-Schultz Clinic, entitled Past, Current, and Future Interventional Orthobilogics Techniques and How They Relate to Regenerative Rehabilitation: A Clinical Commentary masterfully reviews numerous Interventional Orthobiolgic techniques such as prolotherapy, platelet-rich plasma, mesenchymal stem cells, culture-expanded stem cells, and amniotic based products. The healing cascade is reviewed and how each Orthobiolgic technique affects it. Ligaments, tendons, and joint arthritis healing with the various techniques are reviewed. A systemic Candidacy grading system for patients is lacking in most clinics and publications. This is critical, and is the standard of care for patients at the Centeno-Schultz Clinic. A Candidacy grading system determines a patient’s likelihood of clinical success from a specific treatment. Our grading system is divided into GOOD, FAIR, or POOR. Patients should be provided with this important information as opposed to heavy-handed sales tactics or glossy, sensationalized patient testimonials.
If your surgery has been postponed, now is a great time to learn more about your condition and nonsurgical treatment options. Schedule a Telemedicine consult from the comfort of your home, or back porch, and learn about your Candidacy and how to avoid the risks associated with surgery.
