Patient Advocate
 
 

As a former athlete and as a fitness enthusiast, Christian is constantly pushing the limits of his capabilities.

Having endured countless surgeries for sports related injuries, as well as a genetic condition requiring him to undergo 3 surgeries within 3 years, Christian is no stranger to the physical and emotional pain associated with injury and illness. Christian’s personal journey to physical and emotional wellness makes him uniquely qualified to understand the needs of the BioXcellerator patient, ultimately allowing him to better serve those patients, assisting them on the road to their recovery.

Christian understands that the key to a meaningful and fulfilling life is to be of service to others...

Next to being the medical doctor administering the treatments himself, Christian can think of no better way to impact someone’s life than to be able to play a part in guiding those patients through the process of understanding their stem cell therapy, and assisting them through their consultations with the BioXcellerator medical team.

While Christian understands that not everyone can be helped, his mission is to help everyone that he can…

Outside of work, Christian has a passion for all things food related. He’s been known to say that his second favorite career would be as a food critic or as a restaurateur serving up authentic pizza and pasta dishes, reminiscent of his late Italian Grandmother’s recipes, somewhere on an exotic island.

 In his spare time, Christian can be found perfecting various recipes at home, traveling the U.S. and abroad, learning about different cultures, as well focusing on optimizing his health and fitness.   

Christian enjoys giving back to various causes such as Wounded Warriors, American Red Cross, Americares, and the Kids in Need foundation.  

Christian looks forward to connecting with you on your no obligation consultation call in order to determine whether or not BioXcellerator’s cutting edge stem cell treatments are right for you.!
