Dr. Steve Coleman, D.O., medical director of MedicalMasters.org recently returned from a ground-breaking mission to Honduras with fellow U.S. physicians to treat disadvantaged communities suffering from age-related conditions, (including knee joint pain), using cellular therapies such as ProloTherapy. The trip offered far-reaching benefits for local Bonita Springs residents back home in the U.S. as MedicalMasters.org continues pioneering new stem cell treatments for aging Americans using the very same injection technology.
This was the 47th annual two-week trip to Honduras organized by the Hackett Hemwall Patterson Foundation, in association with the University of Wisconsin, consisting of a large international group of dedicated physicians, nurses and assistants.
The one common denominator shared by the entire medical team was a deep desire to help people that are less fortunate and in need of care, particularly a concern for older patients suffering from -osteoarthritis and other age-related joint pain conditions.
“The work we have done in Honduras was humbling, to say the least. People came to us by bus, car or bicycle, from as far as 6 hours away, just to see our team for a single prolotherapy treatment,” said Dr. Coleman
“For many of these patients, this would be their only chance to see a doctor for at least another year.”
Dr. Coleman and the others physician volunteers literally saw hundreds of patients each day, most of which were treated using a powerful cellular technology called prolotherapy, which involves injecting sterile sugar water into affected joints, including the knee, hip and shoulder.
“The experience was humbling on both a professional and personal level. Walking through the streets, people stop, look at us and thank us spontaneously,” said Dr. Coleman.
The experience also allowed him to perfect complex injection techniques that also apply to stem cell procedures he has introduced to his Bonita Springs Clinic, MedicalMasters.org. Not many physicians get the opportunity to obtain such a high level of field training that involve treating dozens of patients each day.
The most patients that the team of 7 Doctors treated in one day
was 204. The steep learning curve helps patients back home in the U.S. who get the benefit of Doctors who have been able to do this…
