What started as a consultation about a shoulder injury, turned into an incredible life change for black belt and Jiu-Jitsu instructor, Manny Slack. In an effort to avoid surgery, he sought the help of orthopedic stem cell treatment to walk without pain from the Albano Clinic.
Manny’s Stem Cell Journey
“Dr. Albano went over my medical history,” Manny recounts. “And, due to being on Prednisone in my early 20s, he was concerned about my hips. So, we did an MRI on my hips and found out there was some pretty extensive damage and some issues with the structural cartilage that generate the bone…”
Our goal at the Albano Clinic is to help you move better, feel better, and live better. We’re passionate about treating you as a whole person. What does your body need to feel its best and get you back to what you love?
For Manny, we got to work and treated both of his arthritic hips with a combination of orthopedic stem cells, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, and physical therapy customized for his specific needs. We wanted to help him move even better than before and get him back to teaching what he loves.
The results were incredible. Here’s how Manny describes it:
“What’s interesting is, being that I’ve always had problems with my hips, it’s a new feeling! Something that I’ve never had the experience of knowing… So, it’s good! It’s nice to know what it feels like to have movable hips.”
Manny continues, “If I hadn’t done this, it would have just been leading me into bigger problems… So I’m glad I was able to find out about these problems and get them treated, but also get them treated with more than just the stem cell level. Being able to get the hormones, supplements, physical therapy, all of those things that encompass the entire treatment – that has been the beauty of me coming here.”
