“In comparing other centers, Dr. Wei was the only physician to provide any outcome data.”

“I just wanted to tell you again how grateful I am with my knee. I am doing so well that my knee is almost back to normal. I just cannot say with words how much Dr. Wei and his medical team did that day to restore my life back. I am so happy and grateful for all that you have done. Stem cell really works for this serious OA patient and I am very willing to share my success with others. Stem cell has worked miracles for me. I am so happy with the outcome…”

“When I first researched knee regeneration, I learned of a clinic in Miami. Then, my daughter helped me identify your center that was close to where she lives.
After viewing your website and listening to Dr. Wei on your website, as well as the ad for the other clinic in Miami, i was much more impressed with Dr. Wei. And I liked his credentials. I seemed to trust what he was saying. I called! Your people were very nice and you called me and then sent me an information packet and some on-line testimonials.
I presented the idea to my orthopedic surgeon. He discouraged me and said stem cell regeneration was several years ahead before they would be doing these procedures but that it may eventually replace knee replacements for many. However, he believed stem cell for me would only put off an inevitable replacement of my knee.
I put the information aside. Sometime later, I met an Army surgeon friend of my Nephew, who gave me information on the damages they do during replacements. I decided to come to see you for an evaluation. I had met others that had difficulty with replacements.
I chose your clinic because I believed Dr. Wei when he said he could help me, I liked your staff and kindness. It seemed like I would be cared for well! The clinic was in a convenient location to my daughter. But, most of all, I was convinced he was the best because he is an expert in Arthritis and he is certified in Arthroscopy and he is honest and forthright in his oral & written information; thorough and just a great doctor! I am very intuitive and read people well!”

“I had a stem cell procedure to alleviate some of the issues of my osteoarthritis (oa) by regrowing cartilage (and therefore NO knee replacement surgery). The formal name for the basic procedure is Autologous Mesenchymal Stem Cell Transplant (AMSCT). My stem cells were harvested from the Iliac Crest in a procedure called Bone Marrow Aspiration and Concentration (BMAC). My procedure added the introduction of fat cells to stabilize the stem cells in the area of the existing cartilage of my knee.
I am excited about this procedure as an alternative to more invasive solutions. This procedure is performed in a (well equipped) office under local anesthesia in under 3 hours using the patients own tissue (no rejection). The patient walks out (on crutches), should be off them in a week and working back to full use of the knee after 3 weeks. The procedure is less expensive than full knee replacement, is low risk and can be repeated. Good for the insurance companies, the patients and the significant others that have to put up with the recovery.”
