Our Stem Cell Clinic Team

New Mexico Stem Cell Clinic Regenerative Recovery

New Mexico Stem Cell Clinic Regenerative Recovery The NM Stem Cell Team is comprised of My Ha, April Hawkes, Michele Winner, and Brenda Romero. We are committed to pioneering regenerative therapy, as we believe that it offers patients the chance to enjoy joint healing and rejuvenation. Current conventional treatments for degenerative joint conditions still mainly rely on reducing the severity of symptoms using anti-inflammatory medicines, painkillers, or resorting to surgical evasive procedures. Pain Managment isn't healing, it simply masks the pain. We believe that the cells extracted from umbilical cords offer a complex combination of growth factors, proteins and stem cells which provide a highly active regenerative mixture. Because it prompts the body to heal itself, the regeneration process is entirely natural: performed by your body for the benefit of your body!
Dr. Kyle Gray, DC

His favorite part of being a chiropractor is getting to meet new people on a daily basis and help them on their journey to better health and happier lives and is so very excited to be able to recommend Stem Cell therapy to patients that would other have to turn to more evasive medicine. Outside of the office Dr. Gray enjoys playing board games with family and friends, going on walks with his wife and dog, and watching Oklahoma Sooner sports (boomer sooner!).
