Noted TBI diagnostic and treatment professionals reach out to former football players suffering from symptoms associated with condition
ENCINO, Calif., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Mark L. Gordon of the Millennium Health Centers, Inc. initially presented the association of TBI with hormonal deficiencies leading to depression and suicide risks on the January 21, 2007 edition of ESPN Outside the Lines. Both noted NFL players (Brad Leggett and Pat Harlow) and World Heavyweight boxer James Toney discussed their symptoms and benefits of treatment under Gordon.
In the January 2012 edition of Life Extension Magazine, a lengthy expose on Dr. Gordon's free program for veterans and law enforcement agents that have suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), believed by Dr. Gordon to be just another presentation of TBI, is discussed.
The Millennium's website, TBImedlegal.com, offers victims of TBI whether civilians, military, or sports-related injured a source of information to help them proceed with optional medical evaluations and care. Over 100 published abstracts are available on the site discussing TBI and the psychological impact of hormonal deficiencies. Also noted is the upcoming release of Dr. Gordon's new book entitled: Traumatic Brain Injury: A clinical approach to diagnosis and treatment.
On Thursday August 29th, it was announced that the National Football League has agreed to pay $765 million to settle a lawsuit brought by more than 4,500 players and their families, in addition to another $800 million for treatment. This settlement attempts to close the legal front in the league's battle against accusations that it concealed what it knew about the dangers of repeated hits to the head. What was not promoted was the increasing number of medical articles showing the association of TBI with the interruption of hormonal production leading to many, if not all, of the conditions associated with TBI.
The Millennium Health Centers is offering to waive the cost of the initial extensive hormonal and biochemical testing used to distinguish between TBI-related hormonal deficiencies and age-related deficiencies. Under this program, a qualified phlebotomist will draw the NFL Retiree's blood and send it to our specialty laboratory in Jupiter, Florida: Access Medical Laboratories. The laboratory will process the blood through an extensive hormonal evaluation and if hormone deficiency is found then the treatment becomes straightforward – replace the deficiency.
This is not a 100% free program since there are some fees involved, but the majority of the costs are in the laboratory testing which has been waived. If you are found to have deficiencies you will need to be seen in person before any treatment can be rendered.
