Dr. Cameron Clokie devotes his career to regenerative medicine. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon at the University of Toronto, Dr. Cameron Clokie is revolutionizing facial reconstructive surgery.
His passion for improving the lives of his patients led Cameron Clokie to pioneering tissue regeneration for the jawbone. By using protein to transform adult stem cells into bone tissue, Cameron Clokie is regrowing jawbones similar to bone growth in the embryonic state.
Typically, reconstructing bones relies on taking bone, fat and muscle from other areas of the body to fill in the missing parts. With Cameron Clokie’s reconstructive methods, a growth protein gel is modelled into a jawbone piece.
The new gel model jawbone is then placed in the missing sections with a titanium rod for support. After five days time, blood vessels begin to regrow over the gel model, regrowing the jawbone to close the missing pieces.

With leading regenerative medicine techniques, Dr. Cameron Clokie became a professor and a clinician at the University of Toronto. Since his retirement of academics in 2017, Cameron Clokie now holds positions on several scientific advisory boards at multiple companies. His fundamental work of bioimplants led to the development of a bone research group at McGill University.
Since the creation of the bone research group, new bone regenerative technologies have been developed and evaluated to improve the future of bioimplants. As the current CEO of Induce Biologics Inc., Dr. Cameron Clokie focuses on unprecedented musculoskeletal regenerative solutions.
Cameron Clokie published multiple papers on oral and maxillofacial surgery while lecturing internationally. He is the holder of 25 US and international patents, both existing and pending related to bone healing and reconstruction.
