When curiosity combines with clarity, a new concept emerges. This is the equation Lisa Caprio, MD, used to create Emerge MD. For 20 years, Dr. Caprio has been in solo practice providing outpatient anesthesia in Naples. As a board-certified anesthesiologist, she observed a dismal trend of patients experiencing chronic illnesses. Realizing the failure of conventional medicine to heal, she was inspired to complete Harvard’s year-long course in structural integrative acupuncture for physicians. As a member of the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture, she offers this modality of intrinsic healing at her new boutique practice, Health and Wealth in downtown Naples. Deeper exploration into the connection between the mind and body compelled her to obtain certification in regression hypnosis from the Edgar Cayce Institute. The combination of these two holistic modalities is often the missing piece for patients who have exhausted their options with traditional Western medicine. Hypnosis works successfully in treating anxiety, chronic pain, and sugar, food and nicotine addictions.
One of the most exciting services of her new practice is treating an array of common, mobility-reducing conditions with CryoText injections. Also known as “Wharton’s jelly,” this human umbilicalcord product is rich in regenerative, growth-stimulating cells and scaffolding proteins. It is the next generation beyond amniotic cells and stem cell treatment. CryoText is used as replacement tissue that is inserted via direct needle injection. Documented case studies with encouraging results include treating muscular tears, plantar fasciitis and bone spurs, meniscal tears, rotator cuff tears, and sacroiliac and spinal facet joints. Dr. Caprio’s extensive experience with needles and ultrasound-guided blocks as an anesthesiologist lend her an obvious advantage when it comes to hand-eye coordination and technical skill. Dr. Caprio’s finesse has been demonstrated most dramatically in facial micro-needling followed by the application of CryoText to produce visible fullness and the disappearance of fine lines and wrinkles—far superior to fillers and injections. Equally exciting is the compelling results in hair growth when CryoText is injected into the scalp.
