Local surgeons & physicians to gain insight & education on how stem cells aid in regenerative medicine, plastic surgery, orthopedics, urology & pain managementJACKSONVILLE, Fla. - (EINPresswire via NewMediaWire) - October 13, 2015 -- The 1st Annual Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Symposium will be held on October 16th at the Lewis Obi Plastic Surgery Clinic and Memorial Hospital of Jacksonville. The symposium will feature lectures as well as demonstration and training from some of the nation’s leading experts in stem cell therapy. As knowledge of the potential uses is spreading across the country, the symposium offers doctors a chance to find out more in a one day immersive experience. The conference also offers up to seven continuing medical education (CME) credits for physicians and health care providers who are seeking to improve their knowledge.
Featured speakers at the symposium include: Dr. Lewis J. Obi, stem cell surgeon and plastic surgery innovator; Dr. David Heekin, orthopedic surgeon; Dr. Orlando Florete, an anesthesiologist specializing in pain management; and Dr. Mark Homra, a urologist and erectile dysfunction specialist.
With breast cancer awareness month in full swing, the experts will also cover the best ways to use stem cells in combination with breast surgery planning and other cosmetic enhancements, such as the SlimLipo body sculpting laser. Dr. Lewis Obi, one of the founders of the Cell Surgical Network of Florida, was perhaps the first to use Seri silk mesh as a surgical scaffold for stem cells, and also has extensive experience with the 410 gummy bear implants.
In addition to cosmetic uses, the symposium will share their studies of adult stem cells in orthopedics, pain management and urology. To find out more about the planned events or to sign up for the symposium, visit
