We believe the most important aspect of treating patients, any patient, is understanding their “why." What is this patient's individual values? What is the most important thing in improving their physical functioning or relieving their pain? What do they want to be able to do most but can’t do currently?
Why do we believe this?
"I understand personally, the challenges in forming a rapport or lack thereof with your doctor. My father, Richard Nathaniel Landrum was Battalion Chief for the Gary, Indiana Fire Department. He had a monumental impact on me. He had a stroke when I was a teenager. And I recall vividly the lack of care or concern shown by his physician. It motivated me to pursue medicine and to be a different type of doctor for patients to connect to in a more organic and less pretentious manner. I was fortunate and blessed to attend schools and have received training at places like: University of Chicago, Harvard, Cornell, Columbia, Hospital for Special Surgery, and Memorial Sloan Kettering. But, through all the increased knowledge and new skills, I have continued to remember how important a kind word, holding a patient's hand or just being a decent human being means to someone in distress and need. No matter what my patients require to stop hurting, I'm here to either provide it for them myself or to show them where to find a solution.
In sum, we learned that service is the rent we pay for living. It is the very purpose of life and not something you do in your spare time."
In honor of my father and others like him that serve on the front lines to protect our very way of life, we will provide regenerative medicine services with a 30% reduction for First responders and Veterans.
