When people are lucky enough to receive organ transplants from others, there is an eternal risk of rejection.
This results in a situation where the receiver has to take medications for the rest of his or her life to stave off bodily rejection of the organs that he or she received. The really sad part about this is that the anti-rejection medications, themselves, eventually make people horribly ill.
In fact, these medications cause cancers to form in people’s bodies and lower people’s immune systems.
So, when people get organ transplants, they are entering a catch 22: do not take the organ transplant and immediately die; or take the organ transplant, lower your immune system from anti-rejection drugs, get cancer and eventually die too soon.

In the world of people needing body part replacements, the people in the luckiest situations are those who need a transplant for something that can easily be harvested from their own body.
This usually involves tissue such as skin, fat and bone. Compared to the people who need outside transplants, people who are able to get transplants from their own bodies come off Scott-free.
After all, they do not have to take any sort of unhealthy treatments to stave off any sort of rejection. However, the operations that they have to go through are long, and they have to keep going back to the doctor. For some people with busy lives, this can add up with the rest of their chores and complicate their lives.
Maxillo-facial surgeons like Cameron Clokie know about the inconveniences of these treatments that replace body parts. This is why he has taken a special interest in regenerative therapies and stem cell treatments for decades.
On a daily basis, Cameron Clokie runs a clinic where he does a good job putting in teeth implants, removing teeth and doing other things related to oral surgery and maxillo-facial surgery.
One of the more interesting, exciting things that he has embarked on is regenerative therapy that uses the stems cells of patients to regrow facial bones.
