New Life Medical Group continues to be the leading regenerative medical provider in Tennessee focusing on not combing cutting edge technology with proven effective treatments such as Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Also known as HBOT, this treatment has been proven to be effective in treating traumatic brain trauma. The TreatNOW Coalition continues to endorse and utilize this treatment to encourage healing our veterans from these invisible wounds they may incur during deployment. Explosives and artillery alone can cause sonic sound waves of such a magnitude that internal damage happens to your brain.
Find out more about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and the TreatNOW Coalition and know that there is support for military veterans in the medical field who want to continue to provide this treatment to veterans.

As we age, there is potential for our body’s hormone levels to become imbalanced. There are many and seemingly unconnected symptoms of hormone imbalance. Here is a rather comprehensive list of some of the symptoms associated with a hormone imbalance:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Lack of energy and fatigue during the day
- Reduced mental focus and memory
- Depression, anxiety
- Weight gain
- Muscle/joint pain
- Decreased muscle strength
- Reduced sexual desire and performance
Men and women can be equally affected by hormone imbalance, though there are some different symptoms. None of these symptoms are enjoyable, and many of us face several of these symptoms at the same time. Do not let yourself suffer through these symptoms. You need to take the first step by acknowledging that it has become an issue in your daily life. There is help for you once you do that.
What Comes Next?
The next step is to get a blood test. From there, New Life Medical Group can help you get back on track with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) if your results show a hormone imbalance. We use an innovative procedure called BioTE® Pellet Therapy. The pellets, derived from natural plant sources, get implanted underneath the skin. Estrogen is implanted for women and testosterone for men. This therapy keeps the hormones balanced throughout the day, reducing the problems encountered in other treatments for this condition, such as topical or orally administered hormones. Because BioTE® Pellet Therapy uses natural plant sources, studies have shown fewer side effects than a synthetic counterpart. There is some recovery time; usually, a few days (men longer than women). Patients may observe minor bruising or skin discoloration. There are also specific restrictions, based on strenuous exercise, baths, swimming and hot tubs for the first few days after the injections.
None of the symptoms related to hormonal imbalance are things we should simply live with. They ruin our quality of life. For that reason alone, we encourage you to reach out to us for a consult. Getting your life back on a healthy track will be one of the best things you could do for yourself.
You’ve been suffering from osteoarthritis or some other type of debilitating pain in your knee for far too long… and you know it is time to do something about it. The doctor has recommended knee replacement surgery. Precisely what you dreaded. You start asking friends, family, coworkers, and even google searches…. you’ve discovered all the things you feared, but what if you had a non-invasive alternative to surgery?
Typical Method: Surgery
Surgery of any kind, is never a sure thing, as we all know. Anesthesia complications and infections after surgery are common enough for patients to be very cautious before they sign up for their own trip to the O.R. (operation room). Then there is the dreaded recovery time. It’s 6 weeks on average before resuming daily activities; 3 to 4 months, at minimum, before full recovery – sometimes up to a year! The inconveniences of being immobilized as well as needing to take time off work for an extended period can prove detrimental to our lives and livelihood.
Cost factors are another conversation. The average cost of a total knee replacement surgery is roughly $50,000! Add on another 12 weeks of physical therapy, and you are staring at a hefty number of expenses. Even with amazing insurance covering 90% of the costs of surgery, anesthesia, the hospital stay, physical therapy, and prescriptions – your out of pocket pay can still easily be well over $10,000! Unfortunately, one more tidbit of negative news we have yet to mention: The average ‘lifespan’ of a knee replacement is 20 years. If you are a middle-aged knee replacement patient, you may have to experience this pain and suffering twice in your life.
