While treating patients in the emergency room at Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake in Dallas in 2012, Dr. John Roland became interested in what many of his peers considered a radical way to help the body heal – stem cell therapy.
He became convinced that by using the body’s own stem cells, which serve as a sort of internal repair system, many illnesses, injuries and conditions, including diabetes, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus and Parkinson’s, can be successfully treated, reducing or eliminating the need for prescription medicine.
Dr. Roland is Medical Director of the Dallas office of American Stem Cell Centers of Excellence, a provider of regenerative physician-based stem cell treatments. The stem cells are harvested from a patient’s fat tissues on an outpatient basis and are transplanted to the area of the body where there is disease or injury. After treatment, the body’s own healing potential may naturally repair and regenerate damaged tissue.
A certified Stem Cell and Functional Medicine practitioner, Dr. Roland graduated from The University of Colorado with a degree in Biochemistry and received his medical degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio where he pursued interest in Neuroscience and Neurosurgery.
Dr. Roland continued his post-graduate work at Duke Fayetteville Area Health Education Center and was board certified in Family Medicine. He has served as Medical Director at Harris Hospital in Cleburne, East Texas Medical Center Pittsburgh and Gilmer Memorial Hospital.
In addition to his work at American Stemcell Centers of Excellence, Dr. Roland is the Medical Director of the Mesquite office of Texas Health Emergency Room.
