About Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine

The Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine combines ancient and modern treatments to give patients safe and effective pain management and provides research and education opportunities. The Center's interdisciplinary team of naturopathic doctors, medical doctors, acupuncturists, chiropractors, and nutritionists work together to identify a condition's root cause and treat the person as a whole—designed specifically for patient-centered care for the 21st century. Located on the campus of Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences, the affiliation between SCNM and Neil H. Riordan, PA, PhD, a research leader in stem cell therapy, will accelerate the development of this safe and innovative option for the treatment of acute and chronic pain.

Over 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain at an annual cost estimated at exceeding $620 billion, the many of whom are currently treated using opioids. This has led to wide-spread abuse and addiction to prescription opioids and illicit drugs including heroin. Opioid addiction and abuse has been attributed to 37,000 deaths each year nationally and 1,763 deaths of Arizonans from opioid overdoses in the past fifteen months. Stem cell therapy promises to limit the reliance on opioids thereby decreasing the potential for opioid addiction and abuse.
