The outcome data for spine and musculoskeletal pain is showing that 76-81% of patients are having positive results from the deployment of adult autologous stem cells using the proven technique we employ.

On May 12, 2017, many of the large hospitals sent affiliated doctors and staff emails alerting them of potential system hacks and the loss of patient electronic health records (EHR) due to the computer virus dubbed “WannaCry” that swept the world. The virus would go on to affect hundreds of thousands of computers in over a hundred countries. When John V. Prunskis, MD (Medical Director of The Illinois Pain Institute and The Regenerative Stem Cell Institute) was alerted of these panicked notices and the spread of the attack, he was unfazed because he knew his patients’ medical records would remain secure because his team chose not to implement an EHR program.

After the passage of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act in 2009 and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010, many of the nation’s health care providers clambered to hastily switch to an eligible EHR systems to take advantage of government-sponsored incentives typically ranging in the millions of dollars. Meanwhile, Dr. Prunskis and his team at the Illinois Pain Institute opted to focus their attention on pursuing further technological advancements in life-changing techniques including the state of the art of autologous stem cell treatments.

“When the government subsidy programs were rolled out, there was a grab by hospitals and medical practices to satisfy the minimum usage requirements to qualify for the cash credits. We explored the EHR options that were out there and were unimpressed. They were only going to decrease our ability to deliver attentive and efficient care to our patients and were not meeting our operational and security needs. These were sacrifices we were not willing to make,” said Dr. Prunskis.

While many of their peers wrestled with the implementation of the clunky software, Dr. Prunskis and his team continued to actively engage the medical community, exchanging best practices on the latest techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of painful and degenerative conditions. They researched and implemented a breakthrough procedure using adult autologous stem cells with significant results in the treatment of orthopedic, musculoskeletal, spine, cardiopulmonary, urologic, neurologic (including stroke and concussion), gastrointestinal, autoimmune, and other diseases.
