Interview with Dr. Melvin M. Propis, M.D.
Dr. Melvin Propis is the Principal Investigator for the South Florida Stem Cell Center (
) located in Davie, Florida (near Ft. Lauderdale). Dr. Propis is a seasoned M.D. and surgeon who, for more than 30 years, has performed ENT Head and Neck Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery and has enjoyed a tremendous success rate in stem cell therapy for a vast range of Cardiac-Pulmonary, Immunological, Neurological and Other conditions (including SCI, Diabetes, Osteoarthritis, and Erectile Dysfunction).
Recently Dr. Propis spoke with RSCI about his medical work, as well as his roles as a mentor, public speaker, and professional artist and sculptor.
I’m really blessed in that I love what I do. I’m 72 now, and I consider the next five years the last chapter of my medical career, before sharing my diverse knowledge and experience as a full-time teacher and mentor for both students and other physicians.
When I was an ENT cancer surgeon, people were very thankful for what I did for them – specifically removing their cancer. And, when I went into cosmetic surgery, I found that not only were patients happy, but it nicely complemented my pleasure as a professional artist and sculptor.
Then, about 8 years ago, I was at a medical conference and by accident walked into a room where a speaker was talking about stem cells, which I had heard of, but knew nothing about. I didn’t leave the room until the presentation finished. I knew at that moment that stem cells were the future of medicine, and I wanted to learn all I could about them. In the beginning, it was all self-learning. There were no textbooks, so I devoured journals, took courses, found mentors, and learned all I could for about 4-5 years when I felt ready to start a practice.
Now, my passion is to teach as many doctors as possible how to do stem cell therapy. Stem Cell Therapy is 21st Century medicine, and we’re just at the beginning. It’s going to continue to improve in ways we can’t now imagine, totally changing the way medicine is delivered and what results it produces. If we just continue on the pace we’re at now, it’s likely that in two generations, the average American will live to the 100 year mark. And, I’m not just talking about existing – I’m talking about living because by injecting their own adult stem cells into their own muscles, bones, and other tissues, along with controlling chronic diseases and conditions, people will be healthy and strong. Stem cells will also be able to replace brain cells that are dying off, so people will also stay mentally sharp and active.
But, now, at the beginnings of the 21st century and its game-changing medicine, I know that some patients are still nervous about stem cell therapy, or on the other end of the spectrum, their expectations are too high. In fact, by the time most patients arrive at the South Florida Stem Cell Center, almost all have done their homework about stem cells and their condition, so I simply give them the most realistic appraisal possible:
• Since 1999 when the first paper was published on Adult Stem Cells, there hasn’t been one instance of tumor formation from their use.
• At the my center, the process usually takes about 3 hours from the time the patient walks into the office to the time the patient walks out of the office. And, it’s very important to note the patient does walk out of our fully ambulatory surgical center, and in almost all cases can return to work the next day.
• Because we use only the patient’s own stem cells processed at our in-house lab, we have never had a single complication or infection or sent a patient to the hospital for adverse reactions.
• Most patients start to see improvements in 2-6 weeks, they continue until about 6 months, and then plateau at that level.
Some patients expect miracles, of course, to which we can only respond that miracles are rare. But, let’s also bear in mind that what we call a medical miracle these days may be standard operating procedure in 40-50 years.
