Gecko Joint and Spine Accepts New Patients; Announces Lectures

Gecko Joint & Spine at 2222 S. Tamiami Trail in the Super Slow Zone Fitness Complex is accepting new patients and offering informational seminars at that location to discuss alternatives to surgery for pain relief.

The lecture on November 15 from 6pm to 7pm is entitled, “Learn about PRP as an Alternative to Orthopedic Surgery.” John Lieurance, D.C., and Wellington Chen, M.D. will discuss the role of Regenerative Injections (PRP) using blood-derived platelets and how they can be an option for treating orthopedic injuries.

On November 29, the lecture is “Explore PRP for Cartilage Regeneration.” It, too, runs from 6pm to 7pm. The doctors will discuss the role of PRP and how they can regenerate cartilage in arthritis and orthopedic injuries such as meniscus and labrum.

Both seminars will provide examples of the patients they have treated who are able to avoid surgical procedures using these natural effective alternatives. According to Dr. Chen, “We were the first to introduce PRP to Sarasota and are currently the only clinic offering PRP and Prolotherapy under guided ultrasound.”

Ultrasound scans, which are covered by Medicare, are used in these treatments, as are certain guided injections related to relief of pain in the spine and joints.

For more information call 941-330-8553 or email Dr. Chen at Videos of this procedure and additional information are posted at geckojoint&
