Personal Interests

Always interested in a challenge, Dr. Friedlis has trekked the Indian Himalayan Mountains, to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro, to base camp of Mt. Everest and the Andean mountains of Peru.

“While it’s nice to relieve someone’s pain, it’s even better to fix their problem. By careful listening and evaluation, and using powerful Regenerative treatments, I believe that it is now possible to help many patients on a definitive basis, thereby allowing them to return to the life they thought they had lost.”
