Your Doctor

Dr Robert Simons obtained his medical degree at the University of Cape Town in South Africa in 1976.

Dr Simons obtained a diploma of Acupuncture in 1981. He was introduced to prolotherapy in 1997 and since then has undertaken a number of courses in advanced prolotherapy over the years.

After attending courses in stem cells in Asia from 2005, he worked collaboratively with doctors in Europe and Asia to provide stem cells for patients with otherwise untreatable diseases.

In order to be able to offer the stem cells for muscular skeletal regeneration and repair undertook training in liposuction so that he could be in a position to offer stem cell treatment in this practice.

He practiced prolotherapy for 12 years before progressing to the use of Platelet Rich Plasma, Orthokine and Adipose-Derived stem cells as potent biological tools in assisting muscular skeletal repair and regeneration. His interest has always been driven by understanding the bodies capability of healing itself.

He has since performed many adipose-derived stem cell procedures on patients with degenerative joint issues of the knees, hips, spine, ankles and toes with very encouraging results so far.

The ideal patient is someone with mild to moderate degenerative disease as these patients will have the most capability of benefiting from this technology.
