Cameron Clokie is quietly changing the face of reconstructive surgery with a new procedure that he has pioneered. This procedure utilizes a protein that can induce adult stem cells into becoming bone tissue, allowing for the regrowth of lost bone in the jaw and other areas.
The doctor says that this basically brings back the embryonic state of bone generation and that patients have regrown the jawbone that they lost. This allows the patient to heal without having to take bone from elsewhere on the body and graft it to the injured site.
Cameron Clokie preforms these surgeries at Toronto General Hospital and Mr. Sinai Hospital, where they are a significant milestone in pioneering new territory in tissue regeneration. His fundamental goal is to eliminate the need for bone grafts. Clokie has lectured internationally on oral healthcare and the future of dentistry, bone regeneration and more.
