To achieve this goal, we believe in using all possible approved and effective methods for the prevention of orthopedic disease and, where disease has occurred, to treat it effectively through compassionate and state-of-the-art orthopedic care. Our staff has all been trained to deal with orthopedic problems. Because we feel it is important for patients and their families to understand as much as possible about their orthopedic condition, we make a special effort to thoroughly explain your problem, medicines, and treatment. If you ever have any questions or if something is not clear to you, please do not hesitate to ask.

Product quality, safety, and efficacy
Optimization of resource utilization
Promotion of productive collaborations
Support of innovative products, and
Adherence to scientific and ethical excellence
We are the Center of Excellence for the state of Utah that translates cutting-edge cell therapy and engineered tissue-based research into clinical products that extend and improve the quality of life of individuals suffering from debilitating diseases and injuries.
Utah Pain Relief Institute clinics utilize different types of stem cells and a variety of methods to administer the cells. Each treatment is customized to the individual patient, taking into account many factors related to overall health and the ailment being treated. Other stem cell clinics use one type of stem cell exclusively. This is simply not the case. Our physicians understand when and how to use a variety of regenerative medicine techniques and applications. We’ll discuss a handful of these scenarios at the educational seminar.
Utah Pain Relief Institute is committed to using the best practices in regenerative medicine as stem cell therapies become an emerging and validated medical treatment in the United States. This is demonstrated by practicing the approved protocols for stem cell therapies that have been established under the International Cell Surgical Society’s Institutional Review Board.
Utah Stem Cells was founded for the purpose of developing a new and exciting concept in a medical wellness center. Utilizing the latest advancements in stem cell technology, all of our services are specifically designed to enhance the quality of your life. We focus entirely on treatments that will help you feel stronger, with pain-free joints, better mood, and a more beautiful appearance. You will look great and feel even better.
William Cimikoski, MD
William Cimikoski, MD — Medical Director of Utah Stem Cells, is a Medical Toxicologist that specializes in Stem Cell Joint Regeneration, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Medical Aesthetics, and Medical Weight Loss. With seven years of medical Residency and Fellowship specialty training, he is a foremost authority featured Healthline TV, ABC News, Fox 13, CBS, KSL Studio 5, and Good Things Utah.
Dr. Cimikoski was born and raised in Fairfield County, CT, in the suburbs of Manhattan. As a youth, he excelled in several contact sports, including hockey, lacrosse, and soccer. By the time he was 17 years old, he had suffered multiple sports-related knee injuries (on both knees) and underwent numerous surgeries, ultimately culminating in major reconstructive knee surgery during his senior year of high school. This essentially ended his participation in competitive contact sports and he started to pursue other passions in non-contact sports, including skiing and windsurfing. This is what brought him to the beautiful mountains of Utah where he could delight to his heart’s content in the plentiful powdery snow.
He has completed seven years of specialty residency and fellowship training. He received his medical training at Brown University, where he did his Internship, followed by his Emergency Medicine Residency at Georgia Health Sciences University and Albany Medical Center. He also completed a Critical Care Fellowship in Medical Toxicology at Penn State University. To indulge his vice of windsurfing, he took a several year hiatus from the rat race and rigors of Emergency Medicine to work as a Ship’s Physician for Carnival Cruise Lines. While working for Carnival in 2004, he met his beautiful wife, Sarah (from Brazil), and they decided to settle in Utah in 2009 to start a family. They now have three young children under the age of six, two boys and a girl.
Because of his commitment to providing the very best in regenerative medicine and helping people get long-lasting results, Dr. Cimikoski has sought and achieved designations beyond his academic background. He is one of the very few (less than 40 doctors in the USA) to have successfully obtained the designation of IROM—C Certified, Interventional Regenerative Orthopaedic Medicine by the American Association of Orthopaedic Medicine. Furthermore, Dr. Cimikoski is one of a select few Doctors in the USA who have been personally trained by Dr. Charles Runels, the inventor of the Vampire® procedures. With his toxicology background, Dr. Cimikoski is able to combine the Vampire Procedures with Amniotic and Umbilical Cord Stem Cells to offer even more pronounced and long-lasting results.
Dr. Cimikoski is keenly aware of the perils associated with osteoarthritis and orthopedic injuries, due to his own experiences and interest related to these debilitating processes. He is an exceptionally accomplished fitness and nutrition expert. This, coupled with his Medical Toxicology background, makes him uniquely qualified to provide the very best health care and optimize his patients’ potential through the use of Bioidentical Hormones, Stem Cell Joint Regeneration, Medical Aesthetics, and Medical Weight Loss Management.
He is pleased and eager to offer these innovative services with Utah Stem Cells, a new concept in medical healthcare wellness.
