SPORTS MEDICINE AND ACUTE INJURIES
GARM’s dream team consists of a powerful brain trust of surgeons/stem cell experts that comprise arguably the most coveted leadership team of physicians globally.
GARM’s dream team of physicians is led by visionary Glenn C. Terry, M.D., a globally renowned Orthopedic Surgeon, who has participated as an physician Leader in both the Barcelona and Atlanta Olympic Games. Dr. terry brings 40+ years surgical experience treating athletes of all levels.How are GARM’s treatments designed for sports medicine applications? targeted stem cell injections of GARM’s proprietary biocellular medicine protocol with or without arthroscopic surgery provides all types of active adults the healing power they need to recover quickly from an injury with markedly less discomfort. In addition to very specialized targeted injections, GARM physicians provide patients with a powerful stem cell solution administered IV. The goal is to release extraordinarily high numbers of stem cells systemically, which then target additional spots of inflammation and injury.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a problem which plagues many adults; it is an in ammatory and debilitating condition known as rheumatoid arthritis.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which your immune system recognizes your joints as foreign and attacks them. if this persists for more than 6 months, then the likelihood of reversing the damage caused to the articular cartilage within the a ected joint(s) is very low. After 6 months, the joints may be irreversibly damaged.
A solution to rheumatoid arthritis is a treatment that addresses the Causes of the problem, not just the symptoms. GARM utilizes a proprietary bioenzyme supplement to help modulate the immune system along with targeted and systemic stem cell treatments. together, these treatments have a synergistic effect in patients.
GARM Clinic in Roatan offers state of the art technology that is on the leading edge of regenerative medicine. GARM’s patients report positive results in treating chronic pain and in ammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis. GARM uses patients’ own adipose tissue (fat) as a source for the stem/stromal cells it extracts. GARM physicians then utilize a proprietary process before administering the regenerative healing components. For most patients, this is a one-time, single day process.in ammation from other conditions such as tendonitis and plantar fasciitis, can be treated e ectively with targeted stem/stromal cells combined with biocellular medicine techniques. Pain and inflammation are eliminated very quickly and regenerative processes begin to repair the area of injury or insult almost immediately.
Multiple Sclerosis is another autoimmune condition that seems to be increasing in incidence. GARM Clinic offers a synergistic treatment protocol to address other autoimmune diseases. This treatment protocol is customized per patient and consists of several components: adipose derived stem cell targeted injections as needed along with iV treatment, targeted enzyme signaling system to help with immunomodulation, along with a unique blend of supplements and dietary recommendations.
Diabetes is a major health crisis in the U.S. and is on the rise in many countries across the world. Diabetes was estimated to have affected 25.8 million adults, or 8.3% of the U.S. population in 2012. By 2030, diabetes is projected to affect 46 million adults in the U.S.
What is the projected impact of diabetes?
Heart Attack & Stroke Rates: 50% of diagnosed diabetics die from heart. In short, diabetes will remain a major health crisis in America, in spite of medical advances and prevention efforts. The prevalence of diabetes (type 2 diabetes and type 1 diabetes) will increase by 54% to more than 54.9 million Americans between 2015 and 2030; annual deaths attributed to diabetes will climb by 38% to 385,800; and total annual medical and societal costs related to diabetes will increase 53% to more than $622 billion by 2030. Improvements in management reducing the annual incidence of morbidities and premature deaths related to diabetes over this time period will result in diabetes patients living longer, but requiring many years of comprehensive management of multiple chronic diseases, resulting in dramatically increased costs.
I have Type II Diabetes. Is it possible to reverse or stop this disease process?
For many patients, the answer is “yes”. The treatment process at the GARM Clinic is a multi-discipline approach incorporating individualized diet and lifestyle coaching, a customized supplementation plan, and an IV treatment utilizing isolated stem cells from your adipose (fat) tissue. The stem cell treatment is complex and is accomplished over a two day period to maximize stem cell counts and to potentially boost specific types of stem cells to increase each patient’s chance for an optimal outcome.
What can I expect by choosing GARM’s treatment plan for Type II Diabetes?
The goal of the elective treatment option offered by GARM Clinic is to restore patients’ quality of life by slowing, stopping, and/or reversing the chronic disease process and ultimately, reinstating optimal health. Many patients have reported:
- A reduction or elimination of the need for insulin
- A reduction or elimination of the need for other medications ✓ A reduction in systemic inflammation
- The perception of improved symptoms of neuropathy
- The perception of increased energy
- Improvement in E.D. symptoms
- Possible reduction in risk for stroke and/or heart attack
What is the treatment process?
When you arrive at the GARM Clinic in Roatán, the GARM Clinic Team will be entirely focused on you.
Day one consists of a thorough evaluation by the GARM physicians including a discussion of the results of comprehensive review of records by the physicians. The evaluation appointment also includes a discussion of your customized treatment plan which includes: individualized nutrition & lifestyle counseling and goals, customized supplement plan, and a pre-procedure evaluation for an autologous stem cell treatment.
Day two consists of an isolated stem cell preparation provided by IV infusion made with stem cells from your adipose (fat) tissue. To obtain the stem cells, the physicians harvest adipose tissue using local anesthesia (general anesthesia is not required). After the harvesting process, your tissue is processed and will result in an isolated preparation for the IV treatment. The stem cell treatment is complex and designed to maximize stem cell counts.
Do all patients receive the same treatment?
No. Because the regenerative medicine procedures at GARM Clinic are highly customized to each patient’s needs, GARM Clinic physicians take the time to listen to each patient, provide a comprehensive examination, and therefore, gain a deep understanding and extent of his/her problems prior to planning each treatment.
Why is GARM Clinic special?
GARM Clinic Physicians embrace the fact that each patient is special; each patient’s history and examination are unique to him/her. A unique treatment plan is required and created that is specific for each individual.
Why does GARM Clinic prefer fat as a source for stem cells instead of bone marrow or blood?
GARM Clinic has three options for autologous sources of stem cells: blood, bone marrow, and adipose tissue. Blood has the lowest number of stem cells per milliliter. Bone marrow has more stem cells per millimeter (ml) than blood, but less than adipose tissue.
GARM Clinic prefers adipose tissue for five reasons: 1) adipose tissue provides approximately 500x more stem cells per ml of tissue harvested than one ml of harvested bone marrow, 2) the harvesting process (as well as post procedure) provides greater comfort for the patient versus the harvesting of bone marrow, 3) adipose tissue delivers generous numbers of stem cells 4) culturing stem cells to increase numbers is not required, thus allowing for a same day procedure, and 5) Cell isolation techniques allow for a safe, same day IV infusion of the isolated stem cells.
Does the number of stem cells provided during a treatment process matter?
Yes. Substantial stem cell counts are important in achieving optimal outcomes for patients. At the end of each procedure, GARM Clinic physicians evaluate a retained sample of prepared cells used in the treatment process. This sample is analyzed using a flow cytometer to determine the estimated number of cells that were administered in the treatment process. GARM Clinic’s proprietary lab techniques are designed to maximize the cell counts for every patient. Again, when it comes to treatment outcomes, stem cells numbers matter.
Is this treatment safe?
Yes. There is very little to no chance for a host/graft reaction or a teratogenic reaction, since the stem cells are autologous and already differentiated. Since general anesthesia is not required and only small amounts of local anesthesia are utilized, anesthesia risks are also significantly reduced. Finally, in GARM Clinic’s fourth year of targeted adipose derived stem cell treatments, no complications from any of the patient’s own autologous injections have been observed.
