Dr. Kostovic is a physician that has been practicing medicine for more than thirty years. She began as an emergency physician who subsequently transitioned to treating chronic pain. Through this journey, she realized that her patients didn’t have the opportunity to treat their pain preventatively. She began looking for alternative methods to treat chronic pain in her patients, especially inspired by those suffering from Fibromyalgia.
Serendipitously, she learned of Ozone therapy and Functional Medicine at the same time. It became clear that providing a diagnosis was futile unless she found a way to deal with the root cause of the issue. Prior to this discovery, she had already been investigating and training in PRP and prolotherapy injections, having learned about them as an alternative to surgery, in some cases.
Motivated by the desire to share the knowledge and experience she has amassed over the years, Dr. Kostovic opened the Upper Room Clinic. She believes in providing a setting in which her patients can reach a sense of peace and fulfillment in their journey towards health, not just treat a physical problem. Her life path allows her to provide patients with a limitless amount of understanding, compassion and knowledge to create a space for an authentic healing experience.
We believe that PRP, a.k.a Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections for Chronic Pain and Injuries in Toronto and Across Ontario, Canada
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy uses our bodies’ own ability to heal damaged ligaments, joints and tendons. Platelets, also called thrombocytes, activate the healing process by promoting the creation of blood clots and other healing factors.
The platelets are derived from your own blood using high speed spinning to separate components of the blood. When injected into the injured tissue, these platelets cause a healing reaction, aggregating growth factors and stimulating increased blood flow to the area.
PRP therapy has demonstrated to improve pain, constitutional stability and blood flow to the injection site. It can be used to treat acute and chronic injuries that have been resistant to improvement with physiotherapy or surgery.BOOK NOW
Prolotherapy & Prolozone Therapy in Toronto and Across Ontario, Canada
Prolotherapy is a method of promoting self-healing in the body by locally injecting a solution that incites an inflammatory response. This is commonly used for joints that are structurally weakened from injury, whether acute or chronic. It is used to increase stability and structural integrity of joints by promoting our bodies’ endogenous ability to heal wounds. It works by ‘tricking’ your body into increasing inflammation in the area for a short period of time to start the healing process again– which results in long-lasting pain reduction and increased structural integrity of the tissue at the injection site. Pain at the injection site may be moderate for a few days following treatment, we strongly recommend against the use of anti-inflammatories during this period. This works against the principle of the treatment and will reduce the positive outcome of the treatment.
Prolozone is similar in concept except it includes the use of ozone in the solution injected into the joint. Ozone has shown to help the body modulate immune response and works synergistically with the components already present in prolotherapy. Unlike ozone injections on their own, proloozone therapy is also shown to help degenerative conditions in addition to inflammatory. It has the potential to reduce inflammation while promoting rejuvenation of tissues in the area.

Ozone therapy is a method that provides mild stress to the body to condition an improved healing response. It helps to promote self-healing, antioxidant production and increased oxygen levels in the body.
When given intravenously, it acts to systemically stimulate the body to produce greater levels of antioxidants, deposit higher amounts of oxygen into your cells and bring inflammatory responses to homeostasis. This results in greater ATP output and stronger immunity.
Ozone injections to the joints, muscles and ligaments modulates local inflammatory responses to promote healing by gathering healing agents and increasing blood flow. It has shown to significantly reduce inflammation at the injection site.
Sexual Enhancement with P-Shot (Priapus Shot) and O-Shot (Orgasm Shot) Injections In Toronto and Across Ontario
The P shot and O shot are specialized methods of injecting PRP into the tissue that is essential for healthy sexual functioning. In both sexes, these tissues may become damaged or weakened over time because of age, trauma, injury or medication.
PRP has the potential to restore integrity to this essential tissue and help increase your sexual health. In men, PRP is injected along the shaft, corpus cavernosum and tip of the penis. It has shown to increase sexual performance, erection girth and hardness while increasing sensitivity and control. In women, PRP is injected into the clitoris and g-spot, which is actually just a continuation of the clitoris within the vagina. This results in strengthening of the vaginal wall, rejuvenation of the labial skin, increased orgasm and sensation, increased lubrication, and helps to treat incontinence.
