The face of Maxillofacial Surgery in Toronto is changing Courtesy of Cameron Clokie

It is not the expectation of many to see a 60-year-old gardening during summer, playing golf in October and hitting the slopes during winter. This, however, is what the life of Peter Russel a retired banker has been like for a couple of years now. He is not the same man who lost his jaw tissues to the benign tumor over 14 years ago.

The jaw bone has regrown by seven centimeters. He considers himself blessed. Peter Russel’s story represents that of seven other patients in Canada who have in silence underwent born regeneration. There are prospects that this kind of restoration will turn around the face of reconstructive surgery.

The head of maxillofacial and oral surgery at the University of Toronto came up with a technique that allows the jaw bones to grow just like that of a newborn baby. The procedure has been made possible by directly using proteins to lure the stem cells of an adult human being to become born tissues. Through this process, Cameron Clokie reveals that all patients have regrown a jawbone that is identical to the one they lost.

The procedures are currently available at Toronto General Hospital as well as Mount Sinai Hospital. Researchers have been looking for possible ways of tissue regeneration. The discovery by Cameron Clokie and his team has therefore marked a milestone. The methods that have been used to rebuild body parts in the previous year and to date are painful.

Currently, Cameron Clokie is the chief executive officer of a regenerative medicine company known as Induce Biologics International. The company mainly focuses on the creative solutions for the musculoskeletal reconstruction. For more than 30 years, Cameron Clokie has been taking part in clinical practice and academic dentistry.
