Dr. Cameron Clokie is an internationally recognized expert in bone regeneration. Nowadays when someone loses their jaw whether due to a disease or accident they can turn to an oral surgeon like him to solve this problem.
Dr. Cameron Clokie uses adult stem cells which are activated by a protein that results in the growth of a new jaw for the patient. He has pioneered in this technique that basically grows the jaw much like one grows in a newborn baby but is something that people over time lose the ability to do.
One young patient that Dr. Cameron Clokie helped was Janine McFarlane who at just age twenty developed a benign tumor on her jaw. the tumor and part of her jaw had to be removed because otherwise this would have developed into what is called ameloblastoma.
This results in a swelling in the face which eventually results in the person dying of suffocation. In her case, the new bone growing technology couldn’t be used due to joints being involved so he used bone carved out of her chin to craft her a new jaw.
One patient that the new bone growing technique did work for was Peter Russel who also lost part of his jaw due to a tumor. Dr. Clokie was able to regrow his jaw using stem cells and he now looks like someone 20 years younger.
