(Courtesy of Maze Cord Blood) Why would a prominent member of The Hebrew Institute of White Plains open a cord blood bank?
Michael Werner is not just a member of The Hebrew Institute of White Plains; he’s also a renowned urologist, philanthropist and devoted husband and father of four boys. Dedicated to “tikkun olam,” repairing the world, Dr. Werner spends much of his professional life and leisure time trying to make a difference. He and his wife are active members of the JDC, visiting Cuba, Israel, Russia and Belarus among others to work on local projects. He also went on a mission to the Philippines and to Haiti, performing up to 23 vasectomies per day in communities where they are not available.
So why did Dr. Werner open a cord blood bank?
As a child, Dr. Werner lost his older brother to a rare blood disorder, one that may have been treatable today with cord blood stem cells. His brother’s death dramatically impacted him and his whole family and is one of the reasons he chose to pursue medicine.
In 1994, Dr. Werner went into private practice, specializing in men’s sexual health and infertility. Unable to find a lab that met his exacting standards, Dr. Werner opened up his own state-of-the-art laboratory as well as a sperm cryobanking facility, offering patients with uncertain future sperm production options to have children someday.
When cord blood banking matured as a science, creating a cord blood bank was a logical extension of the services Dr. Werner already provided to families.
In 2004, Dr. Werner decided to open Maze Cord Blood. His mission was to make the highest-quality cord blood banking affordable to as many parents as possible.
