Less than a year after successful Stem Cell treatment on both knees, Tony Mainz is top ranked nationally in the USASA Men’s Kahuna Division. That seemed highly unlikely at the end of last season after surgeons told him he was done snowboarding. With holes in the medial meniscus of each knee, surgeons told Tony that even following surgery, he should expect to be in a lot of pain.
Tony had heard about stem cell procedures. His research brought him to Health Link Medical Center and Dr. Paul Handleman who expressed confidence that the Regenexx Procedure could help Tony return to snowboarding. Though it seemed too good to be true, he decided he had nothing to lose and had the treatment performed on both knees.
It’s now mid-March and we’re pleased to note that Tony is currently ranked #1 nationally in his age bracket for the Giant Slalom and #2 in the Slalom!
