Dr. Julio Garcia graduated from Northwestern University in 1979 with a double major in Biology and Art History. He continued his education graduating from the University of Illinois, Chicago with his medical degree in 1983. He completed his training in Plastic Surgery at the University of Illinois in Chicago, serving his last two years as a Clinical Instructor of Surgery in 1988. He then went into the private practice of Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV in 1988, where he has stayed for his entire career up to the present. Dr. Garcia was board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery in 1991, became Diplomat of the American College of Surgeons in 1993, and was certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in 1997. During his time in Las Vegas he has completed six medical missionary trips to Mexico to operate on indigent children with birth defects and two trips to the Philippines for the same. He is a published author in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal as well as in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal.

He lectures frequently to other plastic surgeons at national meetings.

Dr. Garcia is a consultant to the Harley Street Medical Park Wellness Center in Chennai, India where he provides supervisory assistance to the practicing physicians there in wellness medicine. Dr. Garcia’s practice in Las Vegas encompasses all aspects of aesthetic surgery, including surgical, non-surgical and injectable therapies, laser treatments and skin care. With Dr Garcia’s interest in wellness and patients, he has striven to keep up to date on all possible options. In early 2013, he began an affiliation with a network of over 20 clinics in the U.S. doing an IRB study to look at the potential of adipose derived stem cells. Through the utilization of this therapy for his patients, his personal interest in its potential grew as his desire to further extend the field of stem cell sciences. Dr. Garcia has sought out other leaders in the field to enhance this technology for the treatment and benefit of more patients.

Mr. Letovsky is the founder and CEO of Letovsky Dynamics, Inc. Mr. Letovsky is a successful inventor with fourteen issued patents including live human cell viability modification technology, fluorescent microscopy tools, missile defense systems, thermal differential engines that use shape memory alloys to generate power from ambient temperature changes, motion simulators for flight training and entertainment, virtual reality displays, and advanced slot machine gaming systems. His current patents pending include modulation of medical imaging system electromagnetic energy for therapeutic effects, space drive propulsion techniques, and radioactive waste neutralization systems.

His live cell viability modification system kills cancer cells without chemicals, and changes the molecular structure of cancer cells so they can no longer divide, and the immune system is alerted to their existence in the body. The technology is also designed to discover bioactive electrical stimuli to promote accelerated healing of damaged tissues and potentially reactivate stem cell functionality in adult differentiated cells. This live cell viability modification system is covered under patent # 8927264 that discloses an Electro Medical Tool Optimization System (additionally, Mr. Letovsky has other related patents pending).

Mr. Letovsky has pioneered pollution free energy systems and personal electric transportation systems. He was also one of the first electric vehicle builders in the L.A. area in the early 1980s, and has produced numerous freeway legal electric cars. Mr. Letovsky designed and built the world’s first Electric Police Car in 1992, which was featured on the Discovery Channel show “Beyond 2000”, drag racing and winning against a standard American police car. He has constructed dozens of cutting edge street legal and agricultural electric vehicles, the world’s first solar powered train, solar powered low speed electric vehicles, and a Plug-In Hybrid Mileage Enhancement systems that can integrate with any hybrid gas electric vehicle to increase mileage to 100 MPG. In the 1980s, he served on the Tri-Cities transportation board in Glendale, California.

Mr. Letovsky has worked with and/or consulted to MacDonnell Douglas, The US Navy, the FAA, the FBI, Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute, Sarnoff Labs, Sony Corporation, Universal Studios, 20th Century Fox, all major video game companies, Station Casinos, and dozens of other research and entertainment entities.
