This week, Jordan Shallow has the pleasure to sit down with Dr. Adeel Khan, an expert in regenerative medicine who specializes in interventional orthopedics. Dr. Khan has office locations in southern Ontario, Canada, and has treated a wide range of clientele, particularly professional athletes from the NBA, NFL, NHL and The Crossfit Games. He is the Research Director for HD Muscle, and as far as we’re concerned, the best regenerative medicine practitioner in Canada.
In this episode, Dr.Khan does a fantastic job to break down the history of regenerative medicine as well as some of the misconceptions and misunderstandings about the field. He explains several topics, including the misnomer behind the term “stem cells,” the spectrum of treatments within the field of regenerative medicine, and how it all actually works. He talks about the injuries and conditions that PRP injections are used to treat, and walks us through a brief discussion on the pain and risks associated with bone injections. The duo discuss “a day in the life” of patient treatments as well as the legal restrictions on the field, and the epidemic of poor quality treatment that leads Dr. Khan to trust very few in the industry. Tune in for a mind-blowing episode this week as we dive deep into the medical field to discuss where regenerative treatments have been, where they are now, and where they may be going in the future!
