“No Longer A Regenexx Provider”
1. COVID-19 UPDATE GLRM patients and your guests: During this time of growing concern, we believe it is our role and responsibility to prioritize the health and well-being of our patients. Like you, we are closely following the news and monitoring the Coronavirus’ impact on our community and public health. Here is the latest information regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), directly from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the World Health Organization: Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. There is no specific antiviral treatment recommended for COVID-19. People with COVID-19 should receive supportive care to help relieve symptoms. For severe cases, patient’s should contact their doctor and their doctor should help decide if hospitalization is necessary. People who think they may have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms of the disease should self-quarantine at home and avoid going into public places.. It is OK to cancel your appointment if you develop any symptoms of the virus. You will not be charged a cancellation fee and you will be offered a new appointment at least two weeks past your appointment date. Of note to our patients and their guests, in order to keep our patients and their guests safe, we have increased the level of cleaning for the office, using hospital-grade disinfectants effective against viral pathogens. This level of cleaning will be conducted along with each normal schedule cleanings until the Coronavirus is no longer a threat to our health and safety. Dr Mahl and his staff continue to treat their patients during this uncertain time. We will be following CDC and WHO guidelines of frequent hand washing and will wear gloves during the exam and any treatments rendered during your visit. We encourage all patients and their guests to follow these best practices to help keep yourself and others healthy: • Vigorously wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If you cannot use soap and water, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60%-95% alcohol immediately after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. • Stay home when you are feeling under the weather or sick. Avoid people that you know are sick. • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing, then throw the tissue in the trash. • Avoid shaking hands. We all recognize that it is a standard greeting, but during this period of growing concerns a simple wave, fist bump, elbow bump or verbal greeting is not only acceptable but preferred by most. • Clean your surfaces frequently, cell phones, computers, remotes and other items that can collect a lot of germs. We look forward to caring for you during these difficult times. Dr Mahl and staff.

3. GenLife Regenerative Medicine and Dr Mahl are not affiliated with Regenexx and do not provide their PRP and Bone Marrow techniques. Dr. Mahl feels the field of Interventional Regenerative Orthopedic Medicine is rapidly changing and prefers to not be limited to their products and protocols, as he enjoys the freedom to do new product development, research and use new treatment options to benefit his patients and evaluate protocols and processes and products using his own critical thinking, judgment and analysis. Dr Mahl has his own in office laboratory for processing and developing protocols. He advises stem cell companies and conducts research, and has his specific protocols for using adipose tissue and amniotic membrane grafts along with Bone Marrow Concentrate and PRP injections. Dr Mahl works closely with a group of highly trained and skilled Regenerative Medicine doctors through the American Academy of Orthopedic Medicine, such as his colleagues Dr Brian Shiple, Philadelphia and Dr Michael Scarpone, Pittsburgh and dr Mike Carlson, Knoxville. This group is composed of the best Regenerative Medicine doctors in the United States and elsewhere.
