Karen Watson- Electric Cell Signaling

Meet Karen Watson!

For as long as she can remember, Karen has had burning, numbness and swelling in her feet caused by neuropathy. When surgery became her last resort for relief, Dr. Jenny Andrus recommended Karen to give our electric cell signaling treatment a try first.

“When you have an issue with your feet, your quality is definitely affected. I’m on my 7th treatment now and for only 20 minutes a day, I would much rather do this than endure surgery.”

Brenda Gardner- Electric Cell Signaling

Meet Brenda Gardner! In 2010, Brenda was diagnosed with neuropathy, and over the last decade, her pain has gotten significantly worse.

“I was at OSC for an appointment with Dr. Carlson when I saw a poster for electric cell signaling to treat neuropathy in his exam room. I asked him about it and he explained the process to me and that the treatment was only $30 a session. I immediately said ‘sign me up.'”

Brenda takes a prescribed dosage of gabapentin to supplement her electric cell signaling treatment.

“When I first started neoGEN, I was on 500mg of gabapentin. Today, I am on my sixth treatment, and I am now down to only having to take 300mg. I would absolutely recommend this treatment to anyone has as severe of neuropathy as I do.”

Check out Brenda’s booklet she is keeping on her treatment with electric cell signaling. When she started, her numbers for pain, numbness, tightness, burning and tingling indicated she was at the highest level. Since starting, you can see her numbers have continued to go down week after week after each session — she is finally finding relief.

Christopher Davis – Lumbar & Cervical Spine Surgeries, Spine Care & General Orthopaedics

Mark McFarland, MDI’ve had the sincere pleasure of knowing Dr. Mark McFarland for the past 15 years. In that time, he performed a lumbar microdiscectomy of my L1-L2, a cervical discectomy and disk replacement of my C6-C7, and repaired a torn meniscus in my right knee. In addition, he’s performed several epidural steroid injections and been my general ‘go to’ for all things orthopedic.

I’ve experienced nothing but excellent outcomes, and Dr. McFarland has always exceeded my expectations. Back & neck surgery is scary, we’ve all heard unfortunate stories, but Dr. McFarland approached my case conservatively, strategically, and professionally. During our visits, I’ve never felt rushed – his bedside manner is excellent, and I’ve always felt he listened to me and had my best interest at heart. He even advocated on my behalf with the insurance company to obtain approval for the procedure he deemed best for my unique situation, in my case a cervical disc replacement (vs a fusion). His team is also great – Shelly Bond has been at OSC for the entirety of my relationship with Dr. McFarland, and I always look forward to seeing her too.

I’ve even taken my elderly parents to see Dr. McFarland for issues they’ve experienced over the years, so clearly there is an elevated level of trust (my 91 year-old mother thinks he’s “wonderful!”)

I feel truly fortunate to have met Dr. McFarland as both an amazing spine surgeon and trusted advisor.

Sandee Darden – Total Ankle Replacement, tendon repairs and lengthening

I just returned from my one year follow-up appointment, what a difference a year makes! My case was complex, and the patient (me) high-maintenance…and Dr. Joel Stewart took it all on! Dr. Stewart thoroughly examined me and my ankle and laid my options out in a practical and precise manner…he listened to what I wanted in terms of outcome and really helped me to make some difficult decisions. He tailored the operation according to my specific needs…I felt like he was not making me fit into an assembly line replacement factory. For instance, when I was very anxious about the ankle incision opening post-op, he told me he could use stitches, which worked beautifully for both of us! He was very thorough and knowledgeable and never talked “down” to me, I was relieved by his confidence!

The end result was way more successful than I ever could have hoped. I am walking and travelling without a limp or pain, and doing yoga and water aerobics again! If you want a surgeon who is super knowledgeable and will really listen to you before, during and after your journey, Dr. Stewart is your guy. BTW, Thanks!

Alethia Willis- Electric Cell Signaling

A longtime OSC patient, Alethia had an appointment with Dr. Carlson and noticed a poster in his exam room that mentioned our neoGEN Electric Cell Signaling treatment for neuropathy.

“I have always had neuropathy, but have been avoiding treatment because I thought the only remedy was medication.”

Now, Alethia has finished her 7th treatment of Electric Cell Signaling, and can already tell a difference! “Prior to neoGEN, I had a loss of feeling in my toes. But now, I am already seeing a difference and regaining feeling. Every time I walk out of OSC, I walk a little bit easier.”

Fred Ambrose- Electric Cell Signaling

After a recommendation from OSC’s Dr. Jenny Andrus, Fred decided to try our neoGEN Electric Cell Signaling treatment for his idiopathic neuropathy.Fred is currently on his 6th treatment, and has already been able to tell a difference!

“At night, my feet were constantly burning, and I would have to get up and walk around to find relief. Now, I am already sleeping better and not having to get up as much.”

Fred has already recommended neoGEN to others he knows who also suffer from neuropathy.

“The treatment is totally painless and it’s really just a chance to sit and relax for 20 minutes.”

Ronald Chappell – Shoulder Surgery

Dr. Martin Coleman is a very experienced surgeon. He has the experience to tell the patient what to expect and to guide the patient through the recovery process so that the recovery is complete. He is patient to listen to your questions and provide complete answers and has an understanding of what the patient will experience during recovery. I will recommend OSC and Dr. Coleman to others.

Reverse Shoulder Replacement – Lawrence Meyers

My right shoulder was gone and giving me a LOT of pain. After having Physical Therapy, the Doctor at OSC took a MRI of my shoulder. After reviewing the outcome of the MRI, my questions were – how do we fix this and how soon? I did not want to wait, putting off surgery would only make me older. I’m 73 and not getting any younger. That’s when the OSC staff took over and booked the surgery at the hospital. A few weeks later, Dr. Martin Coleman did a total reverse shoulder replacement.

After five weeks of Physical Therapy, I was able to swim two laps at the Recreational Center in Williamsburg. I could not swim two strokes before the surgery. Dr. Coleman advised me to do the therapy right after the surgery and follow all the advice of my physical therapist.

Pain was only a issue for two days after surgery. I stopped taking Percocet after two days and just used OTC meds after that. I’m not saying that I had no pain, but it was not that bad. You will have some pain with the Physical Therapy. That will also lessen everyday you do the exercises. My advice is, don’t put surgery off if you are a little on the older side.

The staff and Doctors at OSC are top shelf.  Now, MANY THANKS to Dr. Martin Coleman for doing such a GREAT job on my shoulder. I’m sleeping better, working a little in my yard, and living life large. What could be better?

Ivy Lee – Orthopaedic Care and Physical Therapy for Frozen Shoulder Syndrome

Dr. Jamie SwaleI would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the phenomenal services of my Physical Therapist, Dr. Jaime Swale. She is the absolute best. I am a 70-year-old female that was suffering from a frozen left shoulder. My upper arm was immobile. She was extremely competent and professional and had me immediately performing exercises that I felt were far beyond my abilities. She was personable, readily listened and responded to my concerns, and adapted her plan to my needs. She and her assistant Joy are the Dynamic Duo.

Thank you so much for pushing me to my limits and helping me to progress smoothly. I sing your praises to my friends and family.

 

 

 

 

Thank you, Dr. John Burrow, for your thorough follow-up and services for my initial complaint of pain and stiffness in my left shoulder and upper arm. OSC provides you with wonderful services from knowledgeable, experienced, and above all, caring professionals!!

Cody Leeworthy, DPT

Cody Leeworthy, DPT

After shattering my humerus from a fall during a morning run in 2021, I received a total reverse shoulder replacement and was sent to physical therapy for rehab at OSC. Dr. Cody Leeworthy was my therapist during that time and he was extraordinary. Dr. Leeworthy was prompt, attentive, personable and showed genuine concern for my condition. He was very knowledgeable and explained everything to me in detail. All of my questions were answered and 10 months post-surgery, I believe my mobility is at 90%. I’m told this is amazing. I recommend Dr. Leeworthy to anyone seeking a physical therapist. He will not disappoint you.
