All too often, what we do becomes routine. You go to work, see your patients, intervene in their lives, and go home, eat dinner, watch something, interact with the family, catch up on e-mails, and go to bed to wake up and repeat. If you’re a bit crazy like me, you insert in there waking up at 5:30 am to write a blog every day. As a physician, it’s fully understanding the impact you make in your patient’s lives that abruptly stops that routine and allows you to appreciate the effects of what you do. Stephanie’s story is one of those moments. She was treated by Dr. Kramberg in New Jersey and like many hundreds of patients treated each month with the proprietary stem cell protocol known as Regenexx, it’s not until she let us into her world that I fully “got it”.
Stephanie is a Smithsonian honored artist who hit physical rock bottom. I would get videos of her doing crazy things in the gym after her Regenexx-SD procedure forwarded to me by Dr. Kramberg. Not knowing her, I wasn’t sure what to make of it all, so I just posted those videos on the blog. Documentary filmmaker Doug Orchard however, ever the master at telling us the story behind the person, in a few minutes made me understand Stephanie and the videos she would send. Her story is gripping, emotional, and life changing. Enjoy!
