“I Encourage Anyone With Chronic Pain To Give PRP a Try!”
“I am 56 years old and have had 2 low lumbar surgeries in 3 years. Chronic pain persisted so I began receiving cortisone injections. The first shot worked for 6 weeks but the 2nd shot started to wear off after 4 weeks. In lieu of a 3rd cortisone injection, I opted to try a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) procedure. I was exhausted from pain and pessimistic. Relief from PRP was not as immediate as cortisone, but improved daily. Within one week the pain was 85% better and nearly 100% better at the end of the first month. I am in complete awe. There are no words to describe my gratitude and I encourage anyone with chronic pain to give [PRP] a try!”

Autologous stem cells, which come from bone marrow aspirate concentrate from a patient’s own hip bone, are used to treat sports injuries and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. Professional athletes have used stem cells for years – now it’s your turn! If you are a patient with chronic low back pain from degenerative disc disease, joint pain or tendinitis, come in for an evaluation and see if you are a candidate for treatment with one of our regenerative medicine procedures (autologous stem cell concentrate, PRP or Fibrin Disc Sealant). You may also qualify to participate in our ongoing study.
