Medical Management Team

Mitchell Sheinkop, MD

After 37 years as a joint replacement surgeon at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, where I served as the Director of the Joint Replacement Program and ultimately, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery, I graduated as Professor Emeritus into the emerging discipline of Regenerative Medicine, introducing the integration of clinical practice with clinical research. The result is Evidence Based Regenerative Medicine and multiple scientific outcomes publications influencing how the discipline is practiced and evolves.

Now the time has come to come for the next step in my professional journey; that is to serve as an adviser and consultant with QC Kinetixs and help QC to continue to pave the way in Non-Surgical Regeneration with a needle instead of a knife.
