Let's Get Real.
Dr. Cameron Clokie has many titles to his name; he is a teacher, surgeon, scientist and an entrepreneur. In his teaching career, Dr. Clokie is both the Professor and Head of Oral Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Toronto, Canada.
Bloomberg revealed that Cameron Clokie has a rich academic background. He attended the McGill University and where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery in the year 1985. He later advanced and acquired a Ph.D. in bone regeneration and interface development from the same University.
Clokie has written many publications and has lectured many Universities internationally on matters related to bone reconstruction and regenerative medicine, oral regeneration and University related technology transfer.
In addition, Clokie holds over 25 patents both in the US and outside the US. Being an entrepreneur, Clokie has been able to successfully develop strategic alliances with businesses where he has transferred his tremendous knowledge and skills in reconstructive surgery and bone regeneration into a commercially viable enterprise.
Dr. Cameron Clokie has revolutionized reconstructive surgery through bone regeneration. According to Clokie initially, patients requiring bone reconstruction surgery had to undergo the painful process of stealing bone, fat or muscle from one part of the body to fill a gap on the other.
Clokie bone regeneration procedure is quite a milestone to researchers who are chasing the dream of tissue regeneration.
According to Crunchbase, Clokie has been able to change the face of reconstructive surgery as he uses a protein that seduces the adult stem cells which then grow into a bone tissue. Clokie has pioneered a technique of resetting the jaws skeletal clock by coaxing bones to grow as in newborn babies.
Among the beneficiaries of Dr. Cameron Clokie, bone regeneration techniques are eight patients in Canada who quietly underwent the procedure. Peter Russel, a retired banking executive, is one of the eight patients who underwent a successful reconstructive surgery on the Jaw bone.
Peter Russel lost almost seven centimeters of his jaw bone to a benign tumor in 2003 but was able to regrow the lost seven centimeters through Clokie bone regeneration procedure. Surely Clokie has positively impacted the field of regenerative medicine.
