Professional MMA fighter Kenny “Savage” Porter was at the top of his game. Undefeated and gaining confidence, he’d been training relentlessly since turning pro in 2017 and was set to steamroll his way through the bantamweight division. Then, just one year into what figured to be a promising professional career, Porter completely blew out his knee, tearing his ACL, MCL and meniscus while training. Doctors recommended a traditional approach – a minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery in which the severed ligaments would be sewn back together. However, Porter wanted to avoid surgery at any cost, and sought out alternatives.
That’s when he found Dr. Jamil Bashir of OCYON Regenerative Medicine in Miami, who offered the alternative Porter had been looking for – regenerative stem cell treatment. After two rounds of stem cell treatments, Porter’s recovery was rapid; in just eight months, he was back training and fighting at 100%.
“I definitely don’t think I’d have been able to come back so soon and as strong as I have without Dr. Bashir,” said Porter, “I couldn’t be happier with my choice to use stem cells rather than surgery.”
Porter will look to remain undefeated as he takes on Dylan Salvador at Titan FC 54 on April 26th.
