Dennis M. Lox, MD, Presents Stem Cell Findings at “Clinical Translation of Stem Cells 2014” Conference in Palm Springs, California. Dennis M. Lox, MD, appeared among an elite group of academicians and translational medicine physicians (those that actually use stem cells on patients). Dr. Lox was one of only three orthopedic-oriented stem cell practitioners invited to speak. The lecture was well received, dr-dennis-loxenough so that the program organizers invited Dr. Lox to be a keynote speaker next year in Boston and again in Palm Springs. Dr. Lox presented basic stem cell, cartilage repair strategies, cytokine reprogramming, and select cases from multiple  professional athletes to the end of the osteoarthritis spectrum, a case of a 95 year old gentlemen with severe hip arthritis.

Dr. Lox frequently presents at national and international stem cell conferences to stay at the forefront of stem cell medicine. Dr. Lox does admit that presenting in Europe has its advantages – including the ability to nurture international contacts and  the chance to spend a few days of R&R. Dr. Lox’s last presentation in Izmir, Turkey which is on the coast, allowed the luxury of spending some time in the Aegean Greek Isles. It’s hard work, but Dr. Lox will gladly do it for his patients.
