Scott Brandt, M.D. Knee Replacement Alternative, Other, Stem Cell Therapy

ThriveMD is proud to announce the newest biologic treatment in our regenerative armament for the management of arthritic and degenerative conditions. Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common health problems we face today, with nearly 30 million Americans suffering with this disease. Alpha 2 macroglobulin, or A2M injection therapy, uses proven scientific techniques and natural healing methods to successfully treat osteoarthritis at its source. It is used to prevent cartilage breakdown in patients, promote tissue growth and support the overall restoration of an affected joint. Share this post:What Science Tells ...

Interventional Pain Management – Dr. Brandt and a 25-Year Retrospective

Joe Krieger Other, Research

Approximately twenty-five years ago, interventional pain management was a novel concept with less than 500 physicians actively using fluoroscopy to specifically target painful spine conditions. The “Interventional Pain Management Revolution”, began with physicians like Dr. Scott Brandt, who saw the value of using live X-Ray guidance to target these structures in a minimally-invasive manner. Share this post:At the Forefront of TechnologyThe results of Dr. Brandt, and other physicians like him, were industry-wide shifts in applying new technologies to treat a variety of pain syndromes, and ultimately to help to beneficially ...
When is the Best Time for a Stem Cell Procedure

When is the Best Time for a Stem Cell Procedure?

Scott Brandt, M.D. Other, Stem Cell Therapy, Stem Cells for Back Pain, Stem Cells for Joint & Soft Tissue Pain

There is not necessarily a perfect time to undergo a stem cell procedure for the repair of arthritis and injury, but treating the damage as early as possible provides the best opportunity for positive results. The long-term outcomes from regenerative procedures may dramatically improve as we treat patients earlier into the degenerative process. That said, we are also having excellent outcomes from patients who waited to choose a stem cell procedure until they were ready to undergo a total joint replacement.

ONCOblot, Early Detection Cancer Testing

Scott Brandt, M.D. Other

ThriveMD is constantly looking to incorporate new and innovative procedures, therapies and testing that can decrease the risks of acquiring the diseases associated with aging. In the testing arena, there is a relatively new, highly sensitive blood test that can confirm the presence of cancer and identify the tissue that is affected. This test, the ONCOblot, was originally designed to follow levels in cancer patients but is now available as an early warning screening test.
