64-Year Old’s Knee Improves 90% From Stem Cell Therapy
“I am a female and 64 years old, retired from law enforcement, have horses and bike ride. I have always been active. My left knee started swelling in December 2016 for an unknown reason, in a couple weeks I had a lot of pain and could hardly walk. I saw a surgeon and he suggested a meniscus repair. Surgery was done. My knee after surgery was in a bent position and I was unable to straighten the knee, and I could not walk without pain. Now my condition was worse than when I first saw the surgeon. I tried physical therapy, chiropractic therapy and cortisone shots. Next steps suggested included gel injections or knee replacement surgery. I felt I was too young for the surgery and heard that knee replacement surgery only lasts 10 to 15 years.
I did research and found stem cell therapy. Although not covered by my insurance I made an appointment with Dr Tait. He and the staff were great, and all of my questions were answered. I had the procedure done in August. I cleaned up my diet, took the recommended supplements, did physical therapy and now in October 2017 I feel I am 90% better than when I came in. I highly recommend this procedure with Dr. Tait’s team. I am now exercising in a pool to build my muscles around the knees and doing one on one physical therapy once a month. I plan to start start walking 2 Miles three days per week and get back on my horse and bicycle within the month!”

55-Year Old Overcomes Several Chronic Health Issues with Stem Cell Therapy (Spine, Knee, Ankle & Thumb Deterioration)
“I am a 55 year old male with several chronic health issues – spine, knee, ankle, and thumb deterioration. I have been treated by several doctors and surgeons locally and nationwide. Dr. Tait is #1 on my list. He truly cares! Dr. Tait is very bright and “state of the art” in what is going on in the ever changing field of new medical treatments and information. It is without hesitation that I recommend Dr Tait.”

Osteoarthritic Patient Starts Training For El Tour de Tucson Shortly After Stem Cell Treatment
“Before I was seen by Dr. Tait, I had horrible knee pain due to osteoarthritis which kept me from doing basic things that I wanted to do. My knee would ache and swell at the end of the work day. I was unable to ride my bike. It got to a point where I couldn’t do my nightly walk which, as an active person, was devastating. I was taking anti-inflammatories around the clock and was worried about my kidneys. Dr. Tait recommended hyaluronic acid injections and they have made a world of difference. I am walking without difficulty and riding my bike as much as I like. I rarely take anti-inflammatories. I am even training to ride El Tour de Tucson! Thank you Dr. Tait!”

63-Year Old Patient Avoids Knee Surgery in Both Knees After Seeing Dr. Tait For Stem Cell Therapy
“After an internet search to find someone in Tucson who worked with Stem cell replacement therapies, I found Dr. Jonathan Tait. I made an appointment with him in January 2016 and we decided to try the PRP (plasma rich platelet) injection therapy on my left knee. I have osteoarthritis in both knees but my left was the worse one due to meniscus surgery back in the 70’s. My goal is to continue to play competitive badminton through my Century mark. (I am now 63)
I had two series of injections paired with Dr. Tait’s very well researched supplements and physical therapy (Agility PT/Tiffany Hodges – highly recommended!!)
Bottom line – it all worked! And by the way, my osteo surgeon had said I was headed for knee replacement surgery in the future. I had resolved I was not going to do that, ever!
I am back on the courts, rebuilding my stamina. I do not have the pain I did last winter. Sure, there is some – but it is equal in both knees and due to the strain I put on my legs by playing. I know I need to keep up with my exercises, supplements and take a little more weight off.
If I need to have another round of injections or if ANYTHING else is going on in my body, I will definitely reach out to Dr. Tait. And one other thing that sets him apart from any other medical practitioner I have dealt with – he answers you directly through email! His goal is to help you be healthy and happy no matter your age and not have your body hold you back.
If you want to follow my journey, send me a message via Facebook and I will add you to my private group – Path to Knee Health. And if you have a problem with a joint or your back or a sports injury – talk to Dr. Tait and see what he might be able to do for you. It is truly a beneficial alternative treatment plan.”

Headaches Treated with PRP Therapy Solves Chronic Neck Pain Issues
“After suffering from daily migraine headaches for two years and bouncing from one neurologist to another, I finally agreed to ablation of the neck nerves. This helped some, but I was still suffering with too many headaches (waking up with them each a.m.) The last neurologist I went to (Dr. Carol Hendricks) referred me to Dr. Tait to consider PRP. I was skeptical and it took me awhile to make a phone call just to check the possibility of a consultation. Janet (front office) answered the phone and was so kind and answered all my questions with such concern, I really wanted to make an appointment after talking with her. Best decision I ever made. I have had 3 PRP procedures and it has changed so much for me. No longer waking up every a.m. with a headache, wondering if I would be able to function through the day or spend it in terrible pain and nausea, taking whatever drugs I could think of to help me get through the day……That has all changed. It is so wonderful to not have those headaches and pain! I do have an occasional headache, but nothing that can’t be handled with a couple of Tylenol……Big change from all the big gun drugs I was having to take just to function.
Dr. Jon Tait is the best and he has the best office staff ever. Immediate attention is paid to my every concern and I tend to be a very anxious person!
I highly recommend anyone suffering from unresolved pain in any part of your body to at least consider this procedure. I am thrilled with the results!”

Patient Returns to Tennis and Pickleball Courts After 12 Weeks with PRP Therapy.
“After a year of not being able to compete in tennis and pickleball because of severe hip pain, and bouncing between Orthopedic and Neurology possible solutions, such as back surgery and hip replacement, Dr. Tait correctly identified the problem. After an MRI to specifically identify the exact problem area, the solution was two or three PRP injections, my own blood and non-invasive. After two injections and a twelve week internal regenerative healing process, I am back on the tennis and pickleball courts seven days a week. Thank you Dr. Tait.”

A Patient Expresses Gratitude Toward The Staff at Rejuv Medical Southwest
“Dr. Tait, Janet, and Dawn comprise the most personal, efficent, and state of the art medical team I have enjoyed working with. On top of that – they are a lot of fun! I bring the them a host of chronic and quite serious medical problems and I have been seeking alternatives to surgery for those problems. Dr. Tait is one of the very few forward thinking physicians who is courageous enough to step up and offer solutions to someone like me. I have seen him for two PRP treatments for my right knee and I am hopeful that I will not need replacement surgery if I continue under his care. I am grateful for not only his help but for the quality service I receive from Dawn and Janet as well. They give me great hope.”

WHAT OUR PATIENT’S ARE SAYING ON GOOGLE REVIEWS
Dr Tait listens carefully & explains the condition, treatment options, and follow up process thoroughly. He & his staff are very pleasant & professional
Dr. Tait helped me with some chronic pain. Haven't felt this good in a long time. Very happy that he was referred to me.
Nice office, conveniently located and a fun competent staff. Dr T performed 2 PRP treatments for severe chronic (40+ years!) Achilles tendinopathy. First treatment got me to ~80% pain free. Now 14 weeks since my 2nd treatment and I am pain free. Have to do the exercises and stretches too, but I am thrilled with the outcome. Back to most normal activity.
I made my first appointment with Dr. Tait in early 2019 after learning that he provides individualized medical guidance as to what supplements and foods help his patients achieve optimal health. I've spent my adult life following a healthy, physically active lifestyle, including taking supplements, based on longevity research. Frustratingly, over the past 40+ years alternative medicine doctors, nutritionists and exercise gurus frequently changed their advice, while my primary care doctor/s gave none and were annoyed that I refused to take prescription medicine. Learning that Dr. Tait relies on blood and other tests to determine patients' individual health needs, i.e. what supplements/life style changes they would benefit from, was an answer to my prayers. The first series of tests showed what nutrients my body lacked, as well as revealing I suffered from a leaky gut. One year later, after using Rejuv's supplements and making minor food changes, a second round of tests showed many areas of improved body functioning. I am thankful for the scientific, personalized approach offered by Dr. Tait, it is a game changer and I have never felt better.
Dr. Tait is a wonderful doctor. I worked with him for a year regarding some issues that had plagued me since I was a young child. When I saw him, I was no longer able to walk more than 5 or so steps and was at my wit's end at age 48. He encouraged me to try a Physical Therapist who immediately saw something that was not noticed by the other PT's I'd worked with - and she put me on the path to recovery. Dr. Tait and I kept working together - he helped me change my diet, which had a multitude of benefits for my health. After a year of working together, I had some great improvements, but still some underlying issues that had to eventually be taken care of with minor surgery. Dr. Tait referred me to an amazing surgeon - and a successful surgery. However, had I not made the initial changes to improve my health and physical body, the surgery would have not been as successful. Dr. Tait's kindness, patience and ability to listen and ask questions outside the box made all the difference in my quality of life. I will forever be grateful for that. As well, his staff is top notch. Always helpful and smiling. Always encouraging even when I was at my lowest.
Dr Tait is very thoughtful and presents solutions both within and outside the mainstream norm as appropriate. He never, ever rushes. I get a thorough exam and a full discussion on possible courses of actions, which he leaves up to me to decide which is best; its a partnership in returning to good health. He gave me PRP injections in both my knee and arch for persistent pain. I am happy to say that I was pain free for the first time in years after a week or so and so far, 5 months later, I remain free of pain. Its a blessing.
