Regenerative medicine is the newest trend in the medical field with Dr. Clokie initiating most of the successful research. His interest in regenerative medicine dates back three decades ago when he began studies at the University of Toronto.
Dr. Cameron got acquainted with various advancements in regenerative medicine, which according to him, didn’t bring about conclusive results. As such, he decided to discover new techniques that would make the technology become a reality in hospitals and other healthcare centers in the world.
About Dr. Cameron Clokie
Dr. Cameron Clokie is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, an entrepreneur, and scientist. He is the CEO of Induce Biologists Inc., a company that focuses on regenerative medicine for musculoskeletal reconstruction through innovative technologies. For years, the company has pioneered research in regenerative medicine with Dr. Cameron taking the lead. Cameron Clokie focused on oral and maxillofacial surgery at Full Scope and was a professor of oral and maxillofacial surgery at the University of Toronto. Dr. Clokie received a doctorate in Dental Surgery in 1985 and completed specialized training in 1990.’ Learn more about Cameron Clokie: https://www.yellowpages.ca/bus/Ontario/Toronto/Dr-Cameron-Clokie/390278.html
In 1992, he then joined McGill University for a doctorate in bone regeneration with a focus on interface development of dental grafts. Dr. Cameron has since made new discoveries in the surgical management of jaws. Today he is the most sought-after clinician in the world, conducting international lectures on different topics related to oral health.
He has also published numerous papers about bone reconstruction and made strategic alliances with businesses with the aim of sharing knowledge and developing commercially viable enterprises. In 2017, Dr. Clokie announced his retirement from lecturing in universities to dedicate his time to research on regenerative medicine.
Successful Regenerative Therapies
Cameron Clokie has performed successful regenerative surgeries on two patients- Peter Russel and Janine McFarlane. Both patients suffered benign tumors that had destroyed a significant part of their jaws. After the surgery, Mr. Russel’s jaw bone had regrown up to seven centimeters after Dr. Clokie managed to successfully insert a protein that could feign an adult’s stem cells to become bone tissue.
Janine’s surgery, however, took longer (19 hours) as she required massive reconstruction of the mandible. Though it is only a regenerative medicine project, the surgery has changed the lives of these two people considerably.
