The sedentary lifestyle and poor eating habits demonstrated by many Americans have led to an increase in the number of Americans suffering from some relatively “new” diseases.
Medical experts such as Dr. Cameron Clokie are looking in unexplored areas such as regenerative medicine to offer solutions to life-threatening conditions currently afflicting humans.
Although the field is somewhat controversial, Dr. Clokie and other like-minded individuals are out to make the area more acceptable to everyone.
Dr. Clokie has had success with regenerative medicine in musculoskeletal reconstruction; one of his eight patients, Peter Russel, can attest to this fact. The 60-year old Russel lost part of his jaw to a benign tumor in 2003, but a look at him now reveals nothing of the sort.
Dr. Cameron Clokie performed a procedure on him that stimulated his stem cells into becoming a bone tissue to fill the lost part of his jaw. Unlike traditional methods that are often painful and difficult to perform, regenerative medicine as practiced at Toronto General Hospital and Mount Sinai Hospital is less painful and relatively easier to implement.
Although Russel still needs a little support to move his jaw, pundits agree that the procedure carried out on him is promising.
Presently, Dr. Cameron Clokie is the CEO of Induce Biologics Inc. The organization is focused on using regenerative medicine to offer new ways of musculoskeletal reconstruction.
According to Bloomberg, Dr. Clokie’s experience spanning over three decades in academic dentistry and clinical practice has given him an upper hand in matters regenerative medicine. His work in the academic and clinical fields culminated in his appointment as the Head of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in 1998 in the University of Toronto.
Before Dr. Clokie retired (in 2017), he was the Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the same university. Dr. Clokie is an accomplished academician who has published numerous papers and done many presentations both in Canada and abroad on his dear subject: regenerative medicine.
Unlike other academicians, Dr. Clokie is interested in using his discoveries in building commercially viable ventures. At one point, Dr. Clokie worked under Dr. Urist; one of the people credited for contributing immensely to the field of regenerative medicine.
