Welcome to Barbells and Stem Cells!  My name is Matt Smith.  I am a medical doctor with specialty training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and subspecialty training in Interventional Pain Medicine.

I am also a weightlifting and all around training enthusiast and I love food and nutrition.

Not only that, but I love reading and discussing a wide variety of topics, from politics to metaphysics, to regular physics, to music, to architecture, to city planning, to pretty much everything else.

In addition to my clinical practice, I am actively engaged in research, usually along the lines of new ways of treating neurological and musculoskeletal diseases.  Frequently these involve specific types of exercise, combined with cutting edge medical techniques.

Hence, barbells and stem cells.

This website is a platform for me and my friends to discuss all of these things that interest us.  Enjoy!
