Rather than merely trying to bury your symptoms under a pile of prescriptions, your care providers at Longevity get down to the root cause of your symptoms. We are passionate about helping people eliminate pain and avoid surgery using minimal to no prescription medications.
Dr. Darryl D. Robinson, MD, is double board-certified in Regenerative Medicine and Pain Management. He has practiced medicine since 1996 when he served as a General Medical Officer at Winn Army Community Hospital in Fort Stewart, Georgia.
Providing comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment for pain syndromes for over two decades has molded Dr. Robinson into one of the most accomplished individuals in his field. In 2012, he was acknowledged by Castle Connolly as one of the region’s top physicians.
Because procedures like Stem Cell Therapy require a highly precise injection, many regenerative experts will use Ultrasound to guide the needle. At Longevity, however, we feel this method is not quite reliable enough. That’s why we utilize state-of-the-art image guiding technology when administering regenerative injections.
YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET BACK SOME OR ALL OF WHAT YOU HAVE LOST!
Mid America Stem Cell Institute is devoted to advancing access and quality care in the area of adult stem cell therapy in order to help people suffering from a variety of inflammatory, autoimmune and degenerative conditions.
By receiving Stem Cell Therapy Treatment at Mid America Stem Cell Institute, you will be treated with executive-style treatment from the moment they inquire about treatment, during treatment and continued throughout the journey after treatment. Your life may be radically transformed and we hope a bond that cannot be broken will transpire. You will hopefully be able to resume your normal and desired activities due to an overwhelming sense of relief. Relief from pain, agony, and disabling physical ailments. The quality of life will hopefully be improved due to a restoration of normal function through the process of healing the diseased or weakened cells. In many ways, this is a more cost-effective solution than traditional surgery and recovery, because the out of pocket expenses, not covered by insurances, can compare favorably today’s high deductibles for surgery plus the cost of rehabilitation. Additionally, it is possible to eliminate costly prescriptions through the use of stem cell treatment. Decrease pain, improve function without the need for surgery, and gain a better quality of life through a repeatable process with the understanding that if your body responds to the treatment, it can be repeated if improvements are experienced.

Our goal is to try to enhance the lives of individuals who are suffering from various health issues associated with Orthopedic Diseases/Injuries, Auto-Immune, Urological and Neurological Diseases by effectively deploying stem cell therapy under the Institutional Review Board Approved Research Network we adhere to. Our team is highly skilled and maintains the highest ethical standards. We will always put a patient’s needs and safety ahead of all other concerns. We will invest in the latest technology and training available to ensure our team and company is on the cutting edge.
Stem Cell therapy is unique because we harness the body’s own healing potential by harvesting stem cells via liposuction from one location of the body and relocating them to an area of disease, injury or inflammation to aid with the restoration. Our treatment procedures are all done on an outpatient basis using a minimally invasive surgical technique to isolate adult mesenchymal stem cells and deliver those cells back to the patient. The cells may be delivered as a joint injection, an iv, intrathecally or disc or facet injection. The entire process takes less than 3 hours to complete in most cases. We are committed to making your entire experience with us as comfortable as possible, with assistance from our qualified staff pre/during/and post-treatment.
Today, physicians are using stem cell therapies in the treatment of a wide array of medical diseases/disorders and traumas. Currently, the use of stem cells is becoming common practice with orthopedics as it may help prevent a knee replacement or surgical procedure and improve the function of joints following injury. Practitioners today are also using stem cells within disciplines like pain management, cardiology, rheumatology, and neurology.
Stem Cell Procedure
The stem cell therapy is an outpatient procedure performed by well trained and qualified specialty physicians.
Harvest: Using a liposuction procedure, 60-120cc of adipose tissue is harvested from the patient.
Separate: Using standard protocols, the Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) which contains Adult Stem Cells (ASCs) is separated from the fat cells.
Isolate: Adult Stem Cells are isolated filtering fat and blood out of the adipose tissue.
Infuse: The activated stem cells are then infused or injected as indicated.
The advantages of adipose stem cell therapy, compared with other sources of regenerative cells, are:
Adipose stem cell yields are much higher than most sources. It is not unusual to obtain 10-20 million of dormant stem cells from 120-200cc’s. In comparison, the same amount of bone marrow may only yield several million cells.
Patients receive their own cells so there is no risk of immune rejection.
Mesenchymal stem cells have been proven to differentiate and proliferate into many types of cells. Some patients have reported immediate symptom relief but most symptom improvements range from one month to a year.
Autologous stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive procedure with little to no downtime.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a safe, effective and all-natural way to heal damaged joints and soft tissue in order to alleviate pain. PRP consists of a small sample of your own blood, spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and then injected into the injured area. PRP can be carefully injected into the area of injury. For example, in Achilles tendonitis, a condition is commonly seen in runners and tennis players, the tendon and paratenon can become swollen, inflamed, and painful. A mixture of PRP and local anesthetic can be injected directly into this inflamed tissue. Afterward, the pain in the area of injection may actually increase for the first week or two, and it may be several weeks before the patient feels a beneficial effect. PRP may also be used to improve healing after surgery for some injuries. For example, an athlete with a completely torn tendon may require surgery to repair it. Healing of the torn tendon can possibly be improved by treating the injured area with PRP during surgery. This is done by preparing the PRP in a special way that allows it to actually be stitched into torn tissues.
Cosmetic Face Lifts with PRP- Vampire Facelift– PRP was initially used in wound healing, dentistry and in other treatments such as sports injuries. Most recently, the use of PRP has evolved to address aesthetic concerns. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural stimulation of stem cells and a flood of growth factors to the desired area. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated platelets and bioactive proteins derived from the patient’s own blood. Once activated, platelets release growth factors that stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. The beauty of treatment with PRP is the use of your own body’s regenerative power. There is no risk of reaction or rejection since your body readily accepts the regenerative signal as its own. PRP procedures are minimally invasive and with very little discomfort and downtime.
Stop being crippled by chronic joint pain, try a proven natural alternative to surgery. Regenerative orthopedics is a natural method of treatment for damaged or degenerative tissue used to overcome chronic joint pain. Regenerative procedures re-establish normal function without surgery by using one’s own body to heal itself. Once considered to be irreplaceable tissue, is now able to be restored and rejuvenated using regenerative orthopedics.
Stem cells have been collected from adult human bone marrow and used to save thousands of lives. Until recently, these treatments were largely restricted to blood diseases. However, new studies suggest many other types of adult stem cells can be used for medical treatment. The Oklahoma Center for Adult Stem Cell Research (OCASCR) was created to promote this exciting branch of medical research.

REVOLUTION HEALTH & WELLNESS CLINIC FOCUSES
ON A NATURAL APPROACH TO MEDICINE
We offer a number of medical services to help you achieve your goals of revolutionary health. Learn more about what we do here.
The traditional approach to medicine is costly, inefficient, and ineffective. Nobody has hypertension because they have a Lisinopril deficiency. We don’t get healthier by being on MORE medications.
Functional medicine seeks the root cause of the problem and works to correct it. When the underlying problem is eliminated there is often no longer a need for medications.
Lab tests can be ‘normal’ yet you still feel bad. Do you want to be ‘normal’ or optimal? Do you want to look, perform at, and feel your best? Then functional medicine is for you!
Do you have pain? Bad back? Do your knees hurt? Do you feel like your body is wearing out?
Prolotherapy is a unique procedure that stimulates the body to heal itself. Healing of the underlying condition eliminates pain.
Dr. Edwards is the ONLY physician in Oklahoma recommended by the Hackett-Hemwall Foundation to perform prolotherapy.
The 4 most common (or at least well studied) causes of skin aging and damage are:
