SPEAKERS & PANELISTS
Dr. Matthew Cook
Dr. Cook is the founder of BioReset Medical and California Anesthesia and serves as the Medical Director of National Surgery Center.
He practices Regenerative and Integrative Medicine in Los Gatos, CA. His focus is the use of stem cells and other regenerative medical applications in orthopedic and integrative medicine and for health optimization.
His medical education began at the University of Washington, after which he completed a residency in Anesthesia at the University of California at San Francisco. Dr Cook has also studied Chinese Medicine extensively. He began his studies at West China Medical University in Chengdu, China in 1997. He obtained a certification in acupuncture from Helms Medical Institute and was awarded a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (DTCM) from Henan University in China. He was also awarded a Doctor of Medical Qigong from the International Institute of Medical Qigong. He has studied integrative medicine for his entire career and received a board certification from the Metabolic Medical Institute and is a fellow at the Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. He has studied extensively and mentored with luminaries in stem cell medicine and is currently participating in several trials evaluating the effects of stem cells.
In his functional and integrative practice Dr Cook has extensive experience with energy medicine using medical devices and wearables that use frequency, vibration, microcurrent, and light to treat patients. In particular he has found these approaches helpful in patients with autoimmune, neurocognitive problems, pain management and tick born illnesses, including Lyme disease.
A large part of his practice is based upon an emerging technique known as hydrodissection. It is largely derivative of ultrasound guided nerve blocks. By looking at a patient’s nerves and relevant muscular structures through ultrasound-guided visualization, he is able to inject regenerative solutions including stem cells precisely around the nerves and between the fascial planes where the patient is experiencing pain. It is thought that this may have the effect of relieving nerve entrapment, improving the ability of fascial planes to slide on each other, and resetting the nerve by a variety of receptor based and cell mediated mechanisms.
As part of his practice, he treats professional athletes in baseball, football and hockey to help optimize their performance, recover more quickly from injuries, and often avoid surgery. The focus is to perform an overall assessment and optimize the function of kinetic chains, while also targeting any structural injuries.
