Global Regenerative Congress

GLOBAL REGENERATIVE CONGRESS

The Global Regenerative Congress /GRC/ 2019 is the largest event in the field of Regenerative Medicine.

During the GRC 2019, physicians have the opportunity to meet their high demands regarding the Basic Science of Regenerative Medicine and gain practical experience with biologics in each respective medical specialty.

In addition, participating physicians will become part of the Global Regenerative Academy /GRA/ community, an international platform bringing together forward-looking medical doctors and scientists through continuous education and practice in the current state of the art in Regenerative Medicine. 

In recent years we have noticed a paradigm shift in the medical industry – scientists have discovered ways to enhance the natural healing process in the body.

The advancing application of regenerative therapies in clinical practice has accumulated new knowledge in the literature. Studies have shown that patients heal quickly, slow down the development of their disease (depending on the pathology), avoid complex and stressful surgeries and respond with better compliance. On the other hand, the few side effects and the relatively straight forward technique come to the physician’s benefit at taking relatively smaller risks.
