IT’S BEEN ABOUT FIVE MONTHS SINCE I HAD MY SECOND PRP (PLATELET – RICH PLASMA THERAPY) INJECTION FROM DR.LAI. MY RIGHT LEG HAS STOPPED ROTATING IN IT’S SOCKET AND SEEMS TO BE RETURNING TO IT’S ANATOMICALLY CORRECT POSITION! ALTHOUGH I STILL HAVE PAIN THAT GOES UP AND DOWN…THE MORE MY RIGHT LEG REGENERATES NEW TISSUE AND RECONNECTS IT WITH THE OLD… THE BETTER I FEEL!

I ALSO HAVE INCREASED MY COCA-COLA INTAKE FROM TWO TO FOUR CANS A DAY AND BEEN MORE ENERGETIC THAN I CAN REMEMBER!  I KNOW…I KNOW IT MIGHT BE A LITTLE UNHEALTHY…BUT I SAY, F@*K  ‘EM IF THEY CAN’T TAKE A COKE AFTER ALL IT’S ONLY A LITTLE OVER THREE MONTHS UNTIL THE END OF THE WORLD AND I WANT TO LIVE A LITTLE!!

BUT ENOUGH FRIVOLITY HERE IS AN ARTICLE MY FRIEND SETH GREENKY SENT ME ABOUT PRP THAT WILL TELL WHAT I’VE BEEN GOING THROUGH! http://nyp.org/enews/platelet-rich-plasma-therapy-speeds-healing.html

My whole life I’ve struggled with scoliosis (A severe curvature of the spine) I’m no longer able to walk or use my hands, except for one finger, which I use to type. For the last nine months since I’ve been treated with PRP by Dr. Albert Lai, head of the Pain Management Center in Rancho Mirage, Ca. Since I started PRP injections (which I mistakenly identified in previous articles as “STEM CELL THERAPY”) some miraculous things have been happening  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEnFaF4qPL8

 

Artie:  The biggest question that comes up is how I was so confused between cell stem therapy and PRP.  Now, if I’m correct, they both use stem cells, and what I thought we were going to be doing was something with adult stem cells, but it turns out, uh, that PRP is what really helped me. Please Doctor can you tell me the difference.

Dr Lai:  Sure.  The stem cells we are actually using come primarily from out of the bone marrow.  That’s where the high proportion of stem cells comes from. They’ve been harvesting it from fat, too…and of course from the blood.

Artie:  Right.

Dr. Lai:  But the proportions of the stem cells are different depending on what tissue it comes out of. stem cells are used to treat pretty much any damaged tissue.  Because what it is doing, stem cells are a precursor to the different types of tissue in your body. So, if you put it in a certain spot, whatever tissue that may be – bone, muscle, tendon – it will regenerate into that tissue. That’s the power of stem cells.

Artie: What can you tell us about PRP. What do the initials stand for?

Dr. Lai:  Platelet rich plasma. So PRP, in that sense, is not really stem cells.  It’s primarily platelets that we are after.  Ok.  So, in platelets, contain a lot of chemical compounds that start a lot of processes in your body.  But primarily the platelets contain growth factors which promote the growth of cells, including stem cells, into different parts of your body into what tissue we want them to become.

Artie:  I see.  I remember the first time that you performed a PRP procedure on me, you took blood from my arm, put it a centrifugal force machine, separated the good from the bad parts, and injected it into my hip.…

Dr. Lai:  Correct.

Artie:  Where my problem was.

Dr. Lai:  Right.

Artie:  Then amazing things started happened with me. I discovered that physical manipulation of my neck, legs, hands, and hip while dance music plays helps the PRP work to recalibrate the body.

Dr. Lai:  Exactly.

Artie:  And if I didn’t have that video of me, dancing in my wheelchair, no one would believe it.

Dr. Lai:  (smiles) Kobe Bryant has been doing PRP and he’s touted it in a lot of the interviews that he has done.  But he’s not doing it here.  He’s actually going out of the country to get it done, but it’s the same PRP. In fact, I can name off a list of professional athletes, so Hines Ward, and Polamalu of the Pittsburgh Steelers, …they got it done during the playoff season.  And they were able to play up until the Super Bowl and won because of it.  Without PRP, they might not have been able to do that.

Artie:  Well, I’d really like another PRP shot as soon as possible. I know you “fast-tracked” it, but my insurance company denied me again.

Dr. Lai:  I know… this is some of the issues we have with PRP currently.  Currently, PRP is recognized as a form of treatment but it is not embraced. We have had study after study, cases after cases, where it makes dramatic results, it produces these effects and people do very well with it.  Much better than the traditional treatments that we have today… I’m a firm believer in it!

(At that moment, Dr. Lai’s assistant Chiyoko, walks in and reminds him that he’s got a patient waiting next door, but before he leaves he leans over to me and says)

Dr. Lai: Don’t Worry, if  your insurance doesn’t approve your life saving treatment this time…I’ll personally guarantee it!

Artie : wow…I never heard a doctor say that before!

EVER SINCE LAST JUNE I’VE BEEN RAVING ABOUT ADULT STEM CELL THERAPY AND DR. ALBERT LAI, HEAD OF PAIN MANAGEMENT CENTER , RANCHO MIRAGE, CA.,AND HAVE BEEN FIGHTING MEDICARE TO CONTINUE TO PAY FOR MY PROCEDURES. YESTERDAY I WAS TOLD THAT DR. LAI DOESN’T DO STEM CELL THERAPY!

YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW SHOCKED I AM, BUT CONSIDERING HOW MUCH HE HELPED ME (see video of me dancing in my wheelchair)  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEnFaF4qPL8 I WANT TO GIVE HIM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT. BUT I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS THAT HAVE TO BE ANSWERED…

 IN THE PAST NINE MONTHS WHY WASN’T I CORRECTED IN ANY OF THE EIGHT ARTICLES THAT I POSTED ABOUT THE PROCEDURE I THOUGHT WAS GETTING?

 WHAT DID DR. LAI REALLY GIVE ME THAT MADE ME DANCE LIKE THAT IN MY VIDEO AND HOW CAN I GET SOME MORE?

 BELOW ARE THE URLS TO MY EIGHT ARTICLES. I AM GIVING THE OPORTUNITY TO DOCTOR LAI TO RESPOND TO MY BLOGS AND TO THOUSANDS OF MY SUPPORTIVE READERS.

 IF A DOCTOR’S HYPOCRATIC OATH STARTS  “FIRST DO NO HARM”, SHOULDN’T IT ALSO SAY DON’T GIVE FALSE HOPE?

I DON’T PLAN TO SIT AROUND AND QUIETLY DIE. I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO WALK OR HAVE USE OF MY HANDS, BUT I CAN USE ONE FINGER WHICH I USE TO TYPE, AND “IF YOU CAN ONLY LIFT ONE FINGER YOU STILL CAN POINT THE WAY!”

ON SAVING ARTIE WAYNE!

March 11, 2012

ON MARCH 8TH I POSTED AN OPEN AN OPEN LETTER TO MY DOCTOR…

DEAR DOCTOR MESSNER…

IT’S BEEN SIX WEEKS SINCE I’VE HAD ANY KIND OF THERAPY…AND I’M GETTING WEAKER EVERY DAY. I DON’T TAKE ANY PAIN KILLERS AND MY RIGHT LEG IS TURNING AROUND IN IT’S SOCKET AGAIN, WHICH IS UNBEARABLE.

I SAW DR. YU AND HE DOESN’T KNOW WHY MY FEET ARE TURNING BLACK.

AND THE HUNDREDS OF COMMENTS IT GENERATED) https://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2012/01/12/the-healing-power-of-music/

DR. MESSNER, YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE I CAN TURN TO …PLEASE HELP ME, IT’S WRONG THAT I SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE THIS. I SHOULD BE PRAISED NOT PUNISHED!

YOU CAN GET THE INSURANCE COMPANY TO REVERSE IT’S DECISION AND GET ME BACK ON THE ROAD TO RECOVERY.  LIKE DR. LAI SAID, “IF I KEEP MAKING PROGRESS LIKE THIS, I’LL BE WALKING AGAIN IN A FEW MONTHS!”

*************************************************

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND GOOD THOUGHTS, NOW I’VE GOT A FAVOR TO ASK. MY DOCTOR, LYNNE MESSNER IS MAKING AN APPEAL  TO HAVE MY ADULT STEM CELL PROCEDURES CONTINUED AND ALL OF MY PHYSICAL AND OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY RESTORED.

I’M ASKING ALL MY DJ FRIENDS TO TELL MY STORY ON THE AIR AND DIRECT THEIR LISTENERS TO ARTIEWAYNE.COM  FOR MORE INFORMATION ON WHERE TO SEND THEIR FAXES.

THANKS AND REGARDS, ARTIE https://artiewayne.wordpress.com/about-artie-wayne/

BTW…HERE ARE TWO EXAMPLES OF FAXES BEING SENT TO THE DOCTOR…

Dear Dr. Messner,

I am one of Wayne D. Kent a/k/a Artie Wayne’s many friends. I have been made aware of the difficult situation in which he finds himself. I am begging you to help Artie get the medical attention he so desperately needs and have his therapy restored.

I am a performer, and am still doing shows. If you would please help Artie, I would be happy to donate my services to your hospital and do a show to help raise money for them.

Please help my friend.

With great respect, 

Lesley Gore http://www.lesleygore.com/

*************************************************************

Dear Dr. Messner:

I am writing on behalf of Wayne D. Kent aka Artie Wayne.  Artie has been bravely suffering through his physical problems.  He had some absolutely amazing results a while back from some stem cell therapy.  Watching how much incredible, if not miraculous, movement he had in a video he posted not long after some therapy, gave me hope that I would see him walk again.  As you know, the more immobile a patient is, the more subject the patient is to a cascading set of illnesses.  With mobility, even limited walking, brings about greater general health and a lessening of long-term health costs.  It would be cost saving to his insurance company should the patient (Wayne/Artie) recover as much physical capability as possible not to mention being humanitarian and logical.

Artie’s mental health has held up remarkably well and his positive spirit only increases the likelihood of as much recovery as is humanly possible.  With your help, I fully expect to see Artie/Wayne self-sufficient and productive.  Failure to provide the immediate to mid-term care he needs is fiscally unwise and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment.  Furthermore, his recovery would help prove the benefits of the therapy and help many thousands of others which would lower health care costs for all those individuals and all of their respective insurers not to mention improving the quality of life and added productivity to the family of man, locally and internationally.

You can help lead the way, be a force for good, and have the satisfaction (if not renown) for having forwarded the medical and humanitarian condition.

Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely,

Seth Greenky http://www.greenkeymanagement.com/
