Medical Director and CEO The Prodromos Stem Cell Institute
Medical Director, The Foundation for Orthopaedics and Regenerative Medicine
The PSCI team is headed by Chadwick C. Prodromos MD: an international leader in the use of stem cell and platelet rich plasma treatment. Dr Prodromos received his Bachelor’s degree with honors from Princeton University and his MD degree from the Johns Hopkins Medical School. He served his surgical internship at the University of Chicago; his Orthopaedic Surgery residency at Rush University and his fellowship in Orthopaedics and Sportsmedicine at the Harvard medical school and Massachusetts General Hospital. He is board certified in Orthopaedic Surgery and is editor of a major textbook for orthopaedic surgeons on the ACL. He served as assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at Rush University for 27 years before stepping back to focus on his foundation and stem cell work. He was recently named to be one of seven co-founding members of the American College of Regenerative Medicine. He is first author of dozens of scholarly research papers in peer-reviewed pubmed indexed journals and presents regularly at major international meetings.
Unlike most stem cell centers we carry out rigorous prospective publishable clinical research studies to evaluate the results of treatment.
With my three decades of work in academic medicine, dozens of publications in leading medical journals, & editorship of a major orthopedic textbook, my goal is to bring a level of credibility to our work in the stem cell field.
Therefore we can give you true evidence based information on what you can likely expect from treatment.
An ever increasing variety of problems can be treated, & each patient is individually evaluated by myself & our team to see whether stem cell treatment is appropriate.
We also carry out basic laboratory stem cell research at our center. This research is carried out through the 501c3 nonprofit foundation for orthopedics & regenerative medicine (TheFOREM.org) which has a full & part-time research staff working under my direction.
Most treated patients are able to avoid surgery & have pharmacologic drugs discontinued.
