The former champion’s stem cell doctor appeared on the latest episode of ‘The Menace Podcast with Denis James.’ Dr. Adeel Khan is a Regenerative Sports Medicine Specialist from the University of Toronto. He is working with two former Mr. Olympia winners, Ronnie Coleman, and Mamdouh ‘Big Ramy’ Elssbiay. During the podcast, James’s co-host asked Dr. Khan about Ramy’s ongoing treatment and his chances at the upcoming Arnold Classic 2023.

“So, do you think that before the Arnold Classic, we could see a difference in Ramy or is it going to be ongoing?” Cormier asked the specialist. Ramy’s doctor gave a positive response. “It’s a surprise. But I did see him practice posing a few days ago,” said the sports medicine doctor. According to Dr. Khan, Ramy is responding to the stem cell treatment.

“To me, he looked a lot better,” said Dr. Khan. However, he also told Cormier not to treat his word as gospel. “I’m not a judge, so take it with a grain of salt,” added the Sports Medicine specialist. Big Ramy began the alternative treatment at The Bioscience Institute, Dubai, in late January. During the podcast, Dr. Adeel Khan said he could “fix” Ronnie Coleman’s health issues with “cutting-edge” therapy.

While Walker initially said he would skip the Arnold Classic, he threw in the hat after the prize money increased from $200,000 to $300,000. Ramy also announced he would compete after the prize money went up. “WINTER IN COLUMBUS JUST GOT A LOT COLDER,” The Arnold Sports Festival Instagram page wrote while officially announcing Ramy’s participation.
