Dr. Lars Boman
At Cenegenics Boston I am privileged to partner with highly motivated patients who are ready to change how they live life today and their entire future using the tools of this new medicine – proactive, preventative and restorative Age Management Medicine. In 2008 I said, “I practiced the disease-oriented approach — traditional, hospital-based American Medicine — for over 20 years and I saw the rise of breast cancer, prostate cancer, heart disease, high cholesterol, diabetes and obesity incidence to epidemic levels. My goal is to promote the practice of proactive, preventative medicine to maximize current health and reduce the risk of future illnesses, using the best current scientific methods in a systematic and supportive plan.” I enjoy the detailed science of what I do. I enjoy even more making a connection that matters, and a big impact that will last for years. I enjoy witnessing the remarkable success our patients can achieve.
In 2007 my life changed, and my primary care doctor said to me, “You’re getting older, get used to it.” That’s when I started to unlearn everything I believed before. The medical research is there and the studies have shown our health can be much better if we take action now and learn what is needed to improve our metabolism and let our body restore itself. I can honestly say I am healthier today than I would have been had I continued without making significant changes, and I do not have the conditions and diseases that seemed inevitable. I am also much healthier than my doctor who spoke to me in 2007 (then Chief of the Medical Staff of a major hospital system). The science is clear – I think most people realize there are better options for us to control how we will age and to live life well much longer.
In 2008 I completed Training & Certification in Age Management Medicine, jointly sponsored by Cenegenics Education and Research Foundation (CERF) and the Foundation for Care Management, and I completed Cenegenics Fellowship Training in Age Management Medicine. I then worked as an Institute Physician at Cenegenics Medical Institute Las Vegas, the Cenegenics Corporate Headquarters. In 2011, I founded Cenegenics-Boston to provide this very unique medical service in New England. I came to Cenegenics as a patient myself when there were just five centers; there are now 22 centers nationwide with more scheduled to open. The Elite Health Program works – I have felt all the symptoms you have, I know what is easy and what is hard and I have achieved the same results you want.
As a Cenegenics Partner, I meet quarterly with my colleagues to improve the success of the Cenegenics Program. Age Management Medicine is rapidly developing as new studies are released. I am currently working with a select group of my partners to expand the Women’s Elite Health Program, and to review our Pharmacy Formulary. My partner physicians and I continuously learn and share via monthly web conferences including Grand Rounds, Advanced Topics in Age Management Medicine, and Journal Club literature review.
Previously I have been Board Certified in General Surgery by the American College of Surgeons, 1983-2013. My surgical career spanned over 25 years, the majority in private practice General Surgery in Massachusetts, including abdominal surgery, critical care, trauma, breast and colon cancer, and advanced laparoscopic surgery. Expertise including advanced laparoscopy for general surgery, including colon, esophageal and hernia surgery. Certified in Advanced Aesthetics by Allergen, and certified in Laser Aesthetics. I collaborated in establishing the Esophageal Testing Center for a major hospital system in SouthCoast Massachusetts and laid the foundation for a bariatric surgery center, including team recruitment and training, and team training in Lap-Band Surgery. I continue to maintain my hospital privileges for consultations. Aside from my medical practice, I launched a Med-Spa with a Wellness Program (the origins of my discovery of the new medicine of the 21st century). I have been a longstanding hospital contributor volunteering my time throughout my medical career to committees supervising nutrition services, cancer care, physician credentialing, pain management and blood product usage.
I earned a B.A. in Biochemistry at Vassar College cum laude, and I received my M.D. at SUNY/Buffalo Medical School with a special interest in nutrition and cardiac physiology. I was appointed Chief Resident at SUNY Buffalo/Millard Fillmore Hospitals, where I completed a five-year General Surgery residency with special concentration in cardiothoracic and vascular surgery. I always enjoyed surgery; I was the one they called to fix the problem, like a hero to the rescue. When everyone else was anxious, I was confident. I like what I do now even more – I help my patients fix the symptoms of bad health and they then feel confident and optimistic about the years ahead. I truly enjoy hearing, “Everything is working – I feel so much better!” You deserve this. You want to feel great again. Let’s get this done together and enjoy the years ahead.
Mark McKenna, BS, TPI Cert, ACSM
Nutrition and Exercise Counselor – Cenegenics Boston
My passion for health and fitness began when I underwent my own body transformation back in the summer of 2008. I was tired of being overweight and unhappy with my body so I began reading fitness magazines, implementing what I learned, and immediately fell in love with exercise. Within four months I had lost a significant amount of weight and body fat. It was a major accomplishment in my life, and not only did I feel and look great, but my thinking and mental clarity significantly improved.
This life changing experience motivated me to pursue my degree in Exercise and Health Science from the University of Massachusetts Boston. After becoming certified with the American College of Sports Medicine and while still in school I began my personal training career in Boston’s Financial District May 2010. I’ve trained hundreds of clients and have conducted thousands of one on one personal training sessions as well as small group and boot camps helping people achieve their health and fitness goals. I have the skill and the experience to create a wide range of specific programs whether for elite athletes or novices looking to improve flexibility, core strength, overall conditioning or to meet specific goals. I also specialize in post-rehab/physical therapy training.
My love for the game of golf drove me to become certified through the Titleist Performance Institute in March 2012. TPI is recognized as the leader in elite, amateur, and junior player development, leading the world in research and data on golf fitness, health and swing biomechanics.
I have always believed that the best way to treat morbid disease was through proper nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle modification, not medicating symptoms and managing diseases like traditional medicine. I’ve seen the dramatic results the Cenegenics approach has on patients’ lives and couldn’t be happier to be part of a team that is proactive, not reactive, when it comes to medical evaluation and intervention. I strongly believe that Cenegenics is and should be the gold standard of age management medicine; in fact, the Program should be the standard for how to live an optimally healthy life.
I am your Service Coordinator at Cenegenics Boston. I’m here to help you get the service, products and attention you need to reach your goals. I manage all patient inquiries, pharmacy orders, lab requisitions, schedules, as well as day-to-day office operations. I work very closely with our team here at Cenegenics Boston to make sure everything is running smoothly. I love to hear patients telling me how much better they feel and how much healthier they are.
