This blog post was written with the assumption that you, as a doctor, are at least interested in the possibility of adding regenerative medicine to your practice. Otherwise, there doesn’t seem to be a point to you investing your time reading our blog posts. Given that assumption, we want to address a question that is critical to how you use the information you learn here: is regenerative medicine training right for you?
Since our founding, Apex Biologix has come alongside hundreds of doctors and clinics searching for new services to expand their practices. We have put doctors through PRP and stem cell training courses that teach them the latest techniques using demonstrations and hands-on application. We have trained clinic personnel in effective marketing strategies. We have helped clients make the transition from observer to active participant.
The reason for asking yourself whether regenerative medicine training is right for you or not boils down to investment. Our training courses involve an investment of both time and financial resources. And though that investment is minimal compared to what you have already put into your medical career, it is still an investment. We want you to be sure training is a good investment.
Below are a number of ‘litmus tests’, so to speak. If all of them apply, you are a great candidate for regenerative medicine training. Even if only one or two apply, we hope you will still consider training with us.
You Are a Regenerative Medicine Believer
First and foremost, are you a firm believer in the power of regenerative medicine? Doctors who believe in what we do are the most enthusiastic about offering the treatments to patients. These are doctors desperate to give their patients an alternative to invasive surgeries, long-term pain medication prescriptions, and other therapies that may not be in their best interests.
You Specialize in Orthopedics or Sports Injuries
The two most productive areas for PRP in stem cell therapies are orthopedic issues and sports injuries. More importantly, certain kinds of patients are demanding regenerative medicine therapies in greater numbers. Think athletes and osteoarthritis patients, just to name a few.
You Are Uneasy about Certain Procedures
Many of the doctors who train with us are uneasy about some of the more traditional procedures advocated by the medical community. A good example is knee replacement. If you are an orthopedist uncomfortable with recommending knee replacement before trying every other possible means of treatment, PRP and stem cell therapies may be just what you’re looking for.
You Need to Increase Revenues
There is nothing wrong with looking at the business side of medicine. If you need to increase practice revenues, regenerative medicine is a very good option. PRP and stem cell therapies are ‘cash-and-carry’ therapies due to the fact that insurance companies don’t cover them. Regenerative medicine represents an excellent revenue stream without the hassles of complicated paperwork and insurance company quotas.
You Want to Lead Rather Than Follow
We often hear doctors complain about having to follow all sorts of insurance company requirements just to keep their practices going. Indeed, one of the reasons more doctors are experiencing burnout is that they are tired of following. They are doctors who can usually benefit from regenerative medicine training. If you want to be a medical industry leader rather than continuing to follow insurance company dictates, perhaps you should look into regenerative medicine. The therapies we teach could form the foundation of a whole new practice.
Is regenerative medicine training right for you? Only you know for sure. Hopefully, the information you have gleaned here will help you make that decision.
