Take Advantage of New Scientific Advancements in Regenerative Medicine to Avoid Surgery and Addictive Prescription Medicine

Advancements in medical technology have allowed scientists to better harness the human body’s natural ability to heal and direct those cells to stimulate regeneration of chronically injured tissues. These procedures are far less invasive than their surgical alternatives, resulting in significantly less pain following the procedure and far faster recovery times.

Utilizing the same technologies currently being used at major medical facilities such as the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Nabity and Dr. Santa Ana will remove and isolate the cells in your body responsible for stimulating the healing process prior to re-injecting them directly into your damaged tissues.

All injections are performed with ultrasound or fluoroscopic (x-ray) guidance to assure precise localization of the injection into the exact location of the damage. The Regenerative Medicine procedures performed in our clinic are medically proven, with new studies being published monthly in major medical journals.

I received 2 rounds of PRP shots from Dr. Nabity. My hips have a history of cartilage tears, surgeries, and arthritic tissue. It has been 3 months since the booster and overall I am very happy with the result. There is a noticeable difference in how long I can stand, exercise, and how much shock my hips can take. It is not a 100% cure-all, but it is certainly a significant improvement. Aside from this, it's worth noting that the staff and Dr. Nabity are very personable and willing to take the time to answer questions.

Dr. Nabity was recommended to me after shoulder surgery did not make my pain completely disappear. Now in my mid-forties and having been a life-long tennis player, I was not sure to ever go back to my younger form. Scheduling an appointment was easy and an ultrasound was taken at my first visit. Dr. Nabity confirmed that he felt confident that this procedure would address the pain I had. Unfortunately, the procedure is still considered experimental and not covered by any insurance. Yes, it is expensive and to be honest quite painful, but completely worth it, in my opinion. After a few weeks of recovery, I was back playing tennis, and the pain/tightness slowly disappeared. I am 100% pain free today, and not far from the way my shoulder felt in my 20s. Thank you Dr. Nabity and your staff for helping me feel the joy of tennis again!

I am so thrilled that I found this practice and elected to have stem cell treatment on my spine. Dr. Nabity spent a very generous amount of time with me listening to my concerns, answering questions, and educating me on the procedure. He provides a level of care that is rare to find in medicine, and his confidence in stem cell therapy gave me tremendous hope when I had next to none after a year of battling severe pain. I am 6+ weeks out from my procedure and feeling amazing! It was the best decision I ever made. I also had an epidural injection here that was an exponentially better experience than similar procedures at a well known, local hospital system. The staff here is kind, friendly, and supportive. I would highly recommend this practice for those who are tired of being stuck in the frustrating cycle of pain, scheduling various doctors visits, and never feeling like an end is in sight. Thank you MCRM!P.S. Tina is the best nurse EVER! 🙂

I worked with Tina and she did an amazing job, the injection is painful but the results totally worth it! I am so happy with the result and it was the best choice I made in 2020 to have the treatment here.

I worked with Dr. Nabity with an injury I had over the past couple of months and he's the real deal. The level of support, info, detail, and time he took to help me out was way above and beyond what I would expect. I haven't pursued a treatment as it's not exactly a necessity, but this would be my first choice of a place to go if I had another injury that needed treatment despite it not being convenient for me to make it out here.
During the 3rd quarter of 2020 I had a stem cell procedure done on a degenerating joint. I experienced improvement immediately. The recovery was less uncomfortable than the pain I had been managing for months. I am able to be much more active and recommend exploring this procedure for those managing joint wear and tear. I saw Dr. Santa Ana. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and very patient with questions. Don't suffer if you have options. There is nothing more important than your health and mobility.

In an effort to use time at home towards bettering myself, I may have overdid it with the online workouts. I was able to get a telemedicine appointment with Dr. Santa Ana quickly and he was able to diagnose me online. His line of questioning showed me he was very knowledgeable and ultimately diagnosed me with a muscle strain which eased my fears. Great bedside manner. I highly recommended to anyone looking for genuine honesty and compassion in their care.
Patrick M.
I received stem cell injections from Dr Santa Ana at Michigan institute for regenerative medicine. I had very good results from the procedure. Dr Santa Ana and the staff are very friendly caring people. I would highly recommend them to anyone with knee or joint problems.

I went to Dr. Nabity for chronic iliolumbar / SI joint pain & laxity which had ultimately led me to stop deadlifting, squatting or doing anything which involved lumbar flexion. Being a competitive powerlifter, that was depressing not being able to lift. In October 2019 I received PRP injections on both sides of my iliolumbar ligaments and SI joints. It’s been 6 months, I must say PRP worked tremendously for me, I’m back to lifting heavy pain free. Thank you Dr. Nabity.
I have Osteoarthritis and had Stem cell therapy in Sept. I have doubled the thickness of my cartilage, verified by Ultra-sound. Pain is slowing going away also. Go see Dr. Thomas Nabity.

Stem cell injections in spine ..So Far so good!...I had two problem areas Cervical C-4 to C-7....& The other problem area was my Lower Lumbar area i think L-4 to S-1..The upper portion of my back was the worst ...I have a collapse between some discs in the cervical area that developed into arthritis & bone spurs . This causes me so much nerve discomfort not only in my upper back but also nerve pain throughout my entire rib cage & shoulder area ..After sitting or driving for 20 minutes I would lean back & my entire sternum & shoulders would give off loud pops & cracks & muscle spasms through out...I am only a few days removed from getting 52 injections (26 upper & 26 lower ) but I'm already off of the heavy meds & moving around with little discomfort...I will try to update this as the stem cells will only keep building up as the months go on ...But I can honestly say there is some signicant improvement happening!...Great Doctor & staff ...Down to Earth & excellent bedside manners!
Joel R.
Dr. Nabity is awesome! He spent over an hour with my husband and me going over my MRI’s for hip issues and all other information. He explained everything about PRP and answered all my questions. While we were there, he even checked out my husband’s hip problem too and gave him suggestions as well. I am very pleased with the plan of action we chose together. Looking forward to healing!!
Judith S.
Very good experience. Dr. Santa Ana was very thorough and informative and spent a good amount of time explaining the procedure after a very detailed assessment of my shoulder condition. I am seriously considering proceeding with the stem cell treatment in the next few weeks.
Rick N.
Excellent personalized care for stem cell therapy. My 92 yr old father had bone on bone in his knee for over a decade and was able to regrow new tissue and separate the bones. Dr. Nabity and his staff are very professional, punctual and accommodating.
Joe B.
My visit with Dr. Santa Anna was very productive! My knee pain went from a 10 to a 2 in no time! This doctor takes the time to find the problem and then the proper treatment! Wish I would have found him months ago!
Marc Y.
Dr. Nabity and his staff are very professional and welcoming. I left the office learning things that I don’t know about my knee. So he’s very detailed and knowledgeable about his work. I would recommend him to anyone.

My wife and I came all the way from Toronto for stem cell collection and we are very satisfied with the experience. The procedure was painless and we have completely recovered in 4 days. Dr. Nabity was very patient with us and he is exceedingly knowledgeable on this subject and medical science in general. We are looking forward to work with him again.

I have been suffering from severe arthritis in my thumbs for many years. It seemed like I was at the end of the road for treatment, that is until I met with Dr. Nabity. After stem cell and platelet rich plasma treatment I am 90% improved in regards to pain, strength, and range of motion. I went from not being able to hold my toothbrush or hairbrush to now being able to work again full time as a paramedic. Dr. Nabity took time to answer all my questions, making me feel like I was his only patient. His office and all of his staff were very welcoming. I highly recommend Dr. Nabity to anyone suffering with pain and looking for relief apart from medications. My only regret is not consulting him sooner.
Dawn B.
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for taking the time to post a review. It really goes a long way in helping us spread the word about regenerative medicine and how well our treatments work. Thanks!
Thomas N.
Dr. checked up on me soon after the injection, and was notably concerned about my pain levels and well being. I would consider Dr. Nabity at the top of the list of cutting edge treatments, a caring bedside manner, and someone that I would recommend to anyone that I care about.
Mark R.
Dr Nabity answered every question/concerns I had prior to the procedure in detail. I am now able to be active like I used to be, no medication needed. Thank you so very much.
