In Conversation with Russell Health, Inc. Leadership: ‘We will Continue our Mission to Become the Number one Supplier of Regenerative Medicine in the U.S.’


“We are currently working with some of the top leaders in the regenerative medicine field to continue to grow and provide new innovative products to our customers and their patients.”

Russell Health Inc, a marketer and distributor of specialty medical products and services, works to provide innovative life-changing and sustaining products and therapies to patients and healthcare providers around the world. Russell Health and its partners have distributed Stem Cell Recruitment® products nationwide and achieved profound clinical outcomes in multiple therapeutic areas including cosmetics, wound care, pain management, podiatry, orthopedics, ocular and gynecology.

The company was established in 2017 and is based in Willowbrook, IL.

Ryan Salvino & Jonathan Benstent, Russell Health (Co-Founders) CEO and Vice President respectively, spoke exclusively to The Silicon Review. Below is an excerpt.

Q. Explain your services in brief, Mr. Salvino.

Russell Health is a national distributor of safe and effective regenerative therapy products. The company’s Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® products help the body boostimage its ability to heal itself. Russell Health’s minimally invasive products can be used as an alternative to expensive and high-risk surgical interventions for patients. Further, these products have been reported by health care providers as an alternative to opioid drugs to help patients in pain. Administered utilizing Acellular Tissue Allografts, the products assist in the reconstruction and repair of the recipient’s tissue, thereby helping to alleviate pain and assist with recovery. Developed using a proprietary process, the Acellular Tissue Allografts are convenient and versatile allografts derived from donated human placental tissue. They contain naturally rich growth factors that assist with the body’s healing process.

Q. Mr. Benstent, what are the current market landscape and anticipated trends in Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy®?

We do not distribute ‘Stem Cells’ or ‘Stem Cell Procedures’. All of our products are acellular and do not contain live stem cells. By using a combination of growth factors and other endogenously synthesized molecules, Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® products help to assist the body with repair, reconstruction and supplementation of the recipient’s tissues, as mentioned above. During the pandemic, we have seen a lot of patients and physicians searching for alternative treatments like ours that are safe and effective without posing any additional risks of infection while providing the clinic.

Q. Mr. Salvino, tell in brief about the new revenue streams generated by your offerings.

As a doctor, your first business is caring for your patients. We know you don’t have time to focus on sales, marketing, and product distribution. That’s why we provide physicians who are members of Russell Health’s Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® program with more than just products. When you activate your account with Russell Health, you will gain extensive marketing support, access to Apollo Claims’ Patient Insurance Verification, and access to your account on the Russell Health Ordering Portal. Our program allows private clinics, surgical centers, and hospitals to offer effective and safe alternative treatments while providing a new strong revenue stream.

Q. Tell us about your efforts in the research segment, Mr. Benstent.

We are currently working with some of the top leaders in the regenerative medicine field to continue to grow and provide new innovative products to our customers and their patients. We are always looking for new breakthrough products in the market to stay abreast on the new technologies and innovations in the field. We are consistently documenting patient results to provide clinicians with testimonials on how effective the Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® products are and how they are positively affecting patients’ lives

Q. Mr. Salvino, how do you market your services?

Russell Health connects its distributors, suppliers, and practitioners through a proprietary distribution model named Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® program. Built from an IT perspective, the turn-key program streamlines the entire ordering process facilitating ease-of-use for physicians and their office staff. In other words, we have built aimage mini Amazon for regenerative medicine. The clients can connect with Apollo Claims for billing the products and place the order in the dedicated ordering portal. A lot of our products are covered by insurance. Committed to ensuring client experience, Russell Health also provides in-office marketing materials, including posters, brochures, and information to promote the products and trademarks on clients’ websites.

These innovative and superior-quality services aided in Russell Health’s organic growth within a few months from its inception. Boosted by the positive experience, clients started referring to other patients and physicians, and there’s been no looking back since then. The company now has dedicated products for specific applications sourced from the same acellular tissue allografts used in Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy®. Russell Health has achieved profound clinical outcomes in multiple therapeutic areas, including cosmetics, wound care, pain management, ocular and orthopedics.

With such a diverse array of success stories, Russell Health continues to disrupt the industry with its products and services, helping people lead a rejuvenated life. The company looks forward to expanding its geographic footprint across every state in the U.S. and other countries. We plan to showcase how effective and safe our treatments are to government leaders and clinics such that patients can receive them at a much lower cost. Our ultimate goal from the beginning has been to help people by providing safe alternatives to risky procedures and offering an alternative to synthetic drugs while embracing more holistic and organic products. We will continue our mission to become the number one supplier of regenerative medicine in the U.S.
