Dr. Hang

Regenerative Orthopedic Sports Medicine
2001
  • The regenerative orthopedic sports medicine center was opened on August 1st, 2001
  • The first of its kind in Taiwan, it provides American-standard orthopedic care by employing proven and effective treatment principles from major American orthopedic centers
  • One of the most respected orthopedic centers in Taiwan for treatment of general orthopedic problems, fractures, osteoarthritis, sports injuries, post-injury and post-operative care, state-of-the-art arthroscopic surgery (Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction, Rotator Cuff Repair, Shoulder Labrum Reconstruction, Elbow Ligament Reconstruction) and minimal invasive joint replacement surgery
2004

First (and only) center in Asia to utilize autologous cytokine (your own immuno-protein) and growth factors therapy for treatment of arthritis and nerve compression (Regenokine Program or known internationally as “Kobe”Therapy); and have continued as the pioneer in the ever-expanding field of regenerative medicine

Interleukin-1 (red ball) binds to the receptor (light blue cup) and destroy cartilage or nerve cell (yellow ball)

Injecting Interleukin-1 blocker (blue ball) to bind to the receptor (light blue cup)

Interleukin-1 blocker (blue ball) inhibit the binding of the destructive
interleukin-1 (red ball) to the receptor

2007
  • The only orthopedic center in Taiwan to have received the SMART certification
  • Collaborate closely with Taiwan FDA, Taiwan Olympic Committee, World Anti-Doping Agency, and international medical device companies to promote and improve the orthopedic health care of Taiwan
2009

Effectively reduces the disability and pain caused by degenerative arthritis or impinged nerve (herniate disc)

  • Our center, as a pioneer in regenerative orthopedic medicine, introduced the most revolutionary and effective arthritis therapy, “Regenokine autologous cytokine therapy
  • The only regenerative orthopedics center in Asia offering the Regenokine Program
  • Regenokine autologous cytokine therapy utilizes the patient’s own cytokines (and other regenerative growth factors) for treatment of degenerative diseases. These cytokines and growth factors can stop cartilage destruction and also inhibit the destruction of compressed / dying nerves, thus negate the need for surgery
  • When NBA superstar Kobe Bryant received Regenokine Therapy for his knees in 2008, his rapid recovery after the treatment made him one of the most famous and successful case for Regenokine therapy
  • Continue to work in collaboration with the inventor of Regenokine Program, Dr. Peter Wehling (NBA superstar Kobe Bryant’s doctor)¹
  • Regenokine therapy has successfully treated well-known individuals such as Pope John Paul II² (“Pope” Therapy²), English language educator Doris Broughton³, and movie star Javier Bardem². For the past 20 years, Regenokine has also been successfully performed for patients all over Asia
  • In addition, after 10 years of research and development by Dr. Hang, Next Gen Regenokine (2nd generation Regenokine), has also demonstrated the additional regenerative potential of these cytokines to promote and activate the proliferation of cartilage and nerves

¹ 130 publications related to Dr. Wehling’s work

³ Consent received from individuals

2014

We were the first center in Asia to offer the newest, state-of-the-art autologous cytokine therapy,  Papillon Anti-Aging Rejuvenation Serum therapy (AARS) , from Germany for facial rejuvenation

  • The first (and only center) in Asia to provide autologous cytokines and growth factors therapy for facial tissue regeneration
  • First facial rejuvenation therapy in Asia (European standard aesthetic anti-aging care) utilizing autologous (your own) cytokines (Immuno-proteins) from your own white blood cells to stop skin aging and also your own skin regenerative factors to accelerate skin regeneration
  • Systemic injection of AARS can achieve effective total body anti-aging effect
2016

I-Kine Regenerative Therapy

In 2016, Dr. Hang developed a new regenerative therapy based on our body’s natural protective protein, “I-kine Regenerative Therapy”

  • Utilizes patient’s own protective immuno-protein to stop tissue necrosis/death (cytokines and growth factors), accelerate tissue regeneration (autologous regenerative factors), and more importantly, achieving the function of injury prevention (younger and stronger tissue minimizes injury)
    1. Stop tendons, muscles and ligament degeneration (cytokine): decreases demand for new tissue regeneration (speeds up recovery)
    2. Increase cell and tissue proliferation (cell regenerative factor): promotes new, younger and stronger tissues
  • This revolutionary treatment is indicated for the aging population, high performance athletes, homemakers, and office workers
  • Successfully treated patients include international movie star George Clooney and world No. 1 tennis player Maria Sharapova
2020
  • Began working with an Italian regenerative technology company to provide the most advanced, revolutionary regenerative therapy, Stem-kine therapy
  • Adipose -derived Stromal Vascular Fraction (AD-SVF)¹ has one of the highest deposits of mesenchymal stem cells with very high regenerative potential for cartilage regeneration¹
  • Cells in the adipose matrix can differentiate into specialized cells, but more importantly they can respond to local stimuli from the degenerated tissue, and release molecules (such as growth factors and anti-inflammatory cytokines) to promote cartilage regeneration
  • Combining the regenerative potential of adipose-derived Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) with the anti-destructive cytokines from Regenokine therapy is the most scientific and effective way to treat arthritis and other degenerative diseases

Olympic Gold Medalists

Olympic Gold Medalists

“Dr. Hang, the clinic from China wants to refer patients for Orthokine, and they are scheduled to come in tomorrow, ” my assistant said to me. When they showed up, instead of the two patients scheduled for appointments, six of them came to my office requesting Orthokine therapy. This occurs very commonly in my practice because many of my patients show up for their appointments accompanied by others who have heard about Orthokine and are very interested in getting the therapy. Among these Chinese athletes were world champions, Olympic gold and silver medalists.
“Will my tight ankles and knees feel looser?” was the question half of them asked. After listening to my explanation on Orthokine, all of them elected to have the therapy.
As we know, these athletes were plagued with chronic symptoms from the relentless pursuit of success. Therefore, one athlete received Orthokine in both knees and both ankles, two athletes for shoulder tendonitis, one received epidural injections for a herniated disc, one for bilateral knees, and one for a hip injection. Since these Olympic medalists could not travel freely to Taiwan (due to the on-going political stalemate), I did not see them again. However, on occasions I would see them on TV competing for medals.

Business Tycoon

“Mr. Lee (from a small country in Indo-China) will be one hour late, ” the receptionist informed me. Mr. Lee was referred by a patient of mine, suffering from chronic knee pain and swelling, who became asymptomatic after Orthokine therapy. Mr. Lee came into my office speaking Chinese with an overseas Chinese accent. “My knee has been bothering me, and I have been to many doctors in Singapore and Korea, ” he said. In addition to the grade II Osteoarthritis in his knee, he also suffers from patellofemoral syndrome. Although he is one of the most influential and successful businessmen in his country, his success comes not only from hard-work, but also from a lot of lady luck on his side! His life was the embodiment of an adventure movie: Escape from the Communist regime by trekking thru a disease-infested jungle, missing the refugee boat, being sent to a refugee camp, then sent back to his country when the camp closed. Then he started smuggling daily essentials to start his business, fought with pirates on high seas, narrowly escaped assassination by the Indochinese mafia, and eventually built a business empire that covers nearly every aspect of daily living.

He flew in for five days to receive the Regenokine therapy. At first, he was slightly disappointed when I told him that the patellofemoral pain may require a prolonged course of recovery, and Orthokine may not work as well for patellofemoral problems. However, three weeks later, he called me and told me that he was not having as much pain during golf, which he plays every day, and was one of his main concerns in life. He returned to see me after four weeks and basically did not have any more pain. And again, due to the resolution of his symptoms, he referred many other patients from this small, emerging country.

Asian Movie Star

This patient came to see me a few years ago. “I need to train for the next movie and when I tried to do a spin kick, I felt very uncomfortable in the front of the knee. And I am also directing a new movie in a few months. I need to get better!”. Although he was one of the few top Asian kung-fu movie stars that performed his own stunt and fights, he has been blessed with minimal injuries. However, on a routine stunt, he developed pain in both of his knees. The pain has plagued him for almost one year, and he tried all known medications, injections, and even all the known traditional Chinese remedies without any improvement of his symptoms. His x-ray showed no evidence of Osteoarthritis despite years of abuse from his martial arts training and acrobatic stunts in the movies. Four weeks after receiving his therapy and following the usual therapeutic regimen for patellofemoral problem, I gave him the go-ahead to resume his training. Initially he was still having some vague discomfort in the anterior aspect of his knees with rotational leaps and kicks, but soon was able to participate fully in his training. He called me a few months later complaining of anterior knee pain while practicing, but the pain subsided after some rest and anti-inflammatory medication. Currently he is still making movies entertaining audience world-wide.

Asian Entertainer: Post-injury or Post-operative Prophylaxis

Mr. Kang (stage name), a leading entertainer / pop-star in Asia, came to my office ten years ago for a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) sustained in a basketball injury. He underwent an ACL reconstruction and after seven months of rehabilitation, he began playing basketball again and performing on stage. He re-tore the ACL graft four years later during one of his concerts. I performed a revision ACL surgery on him and again, he went back to his love, basketball and performing. But unfortunately, he tore the ACL in his other knee one year later, again, from playing basketball. On his office visit, x-rays were taken of the revised ACL reconstructed knee which showed grade II Osteoarthritis. “I have a concert tour coming up in a few weeks. Is it OK to postpone the reconstruction until a later date?” he asked me with grave concern. “And what about my other knee? What do I do about the Osteoarthritis?” Since Regenokine was not available when he had his knee reconstructed years earlier, I offered him the treatment on this visit. And this was the time (in 2011) when the world was abuzz with the revelation that Kobe Bryant received Regenokine in his knee, which allowed him to return to the NBA and continue his enchanting performance. “This is the same therapy that Kobe received, right?” asked Mr. Kang, who knew Kobe on a personal basis. Without any hesitation, he elected to have the therapy in his previously reconstructed knee. As for the non-reconstructed knee; he decided to use Orthokine as a prophylaxis against further cartilage destruction until he could find time for the reconstruction.

The American Educator and Missionary: Indication for Severe Osteoarthritis

This patient came to see me more than 11 years ago to see if I could help her. She is the most influential and well-known English teacher in China and Asia. She has been in Asia for more than 60 years teaching English and doing Christian missionary work. Her English programs have reached hundreds of thousands of native Chinese speakers through radio programs, T.V. programs and the Internet. 80 to 90% of the Taiwanese population over the age of 50 have learned English from her.

She came to me with chronic knee pain that was unrelenting despite NSAIDs and scheduled corticosteroid injections. She had severe grade IV lesion of both knees on the lateral compartment and grade III lesion on the medial compartment. A surgical option had been offered to her by other physicians, but due to her other medical problems, she elected not to have surgery. “Do you think you can help me?” she asked me. I explained that since she had end-stage Osteoarthritis, other than symptomatic relief with corticosteroid injections and physical therapy (since she was not on any therapeutic exercises and therapy); I did not have anything to offer her. This was at the same time I was initiating the first generation Regenokine clinical study, so I asked her if she would be willing to try the novel therapy from Germany. She immediately said “Yes! Anything that may help me!” She received the first generation Regenokine. Although Regenokine did not diminished her symptom completely, it took away enough of her pain for her to give lectures, travel worldwide performing, and continue her teaching over the past 11 years. She did well for about seven years before coming back to receive additional injections on a biannual basis. She also received Regenokine in her spine last year due to increasing low back pain secondary to spinal stenosis. Regenokine has helped her with her lower back pain, and she is grateful that the therapy has allowed her to continue to carry on her daily routine and participate in public events

Anti-aging Phenomenon: Stopping Joint Aging

“Dr. Hang, Ms. Lin, a referral from Dr. Wang’s office seeking advice for Orthokine for her knees, will be in this afternoon.” Miss Lin is a very successful and well-known businesswoman in the fashion industry. When I met her, she did not look like a 50-year-old grandmother of two. She looks as young as a 30-year-old. She is a very health-conscience person who takes great care of her health based on good sleeping habits, well-tuned psychological well-being, a well-balanced diet, daily exercise, and scheduled hormonal supplements.

A few years ago, she developed mild anterior knee pain with increased stair climbing, but that resolved itself on its own. She came to me wanting to know if there was any problem with her knees and whether she needed any prophylaxis (or anti-aging) therapy for her joints. Her knee x-rays revealed grade II Osteoarthritis in the medial compartments. The anterior compartment was normal without any evidence of patella subluxation or tilting. After explaining the science behind Orthokine, she decided to have Orthokine without any hesitation. “If Orthokine can stop or slow down destruction, then if I come in annually to get the injection, I may never experience any pain from progressive cartilage deterioration, right? What will I feel after the injection?” she asked me. I told her that I had started Orthokine on a group of patients as prophylaxis against cartilage degeneration and the most common comment was that their knees felt “looser”, “lighter” or “stronger” (yes, stronger!). To me these were all signs of decreased inflammation in the joint. And like the rest of the patients in this “anti-aging” group, she experienced similar results after her Orthokine therapy, and comes in, as do the other patients, annually for her Orthokine therapy and has been asymptomatic since.
