8 Short Videos on PRP Therapy

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy: Will Insurance Cover This? - Dr. Aiello (VIDEO)

I was pretty convinced years ago with shoulder dextrose injections, but over the years I've wondered more and hearing SO MANY attack this work, one starts to think more. Hearing these informative short videos just makes me feel stronger about PRP and just can't believe Dr. Joseph Aiello is B'Sing the people.

I know someone who had stem cell injections in her knees last week. (stem cells from her bone marrow)

I'm interested in her outcome. It can take quite a while to feel any positive effects, if positive effects are going to happen.

She was told that one must have some cartilage left to qualify for this treatment - that it cannot be done on people who have bone rubbing on bone in their knees.

Dr. Darrow says as long as one can BEND the knee, there is cartilage there. It could take "some time" for an outcome of stem cell work.

I've reached out to the rheumy who worked on my knee and spine after hip replacement with prolo and acupuncture. Sent her an email on the last 9 months of my life and may go in to see her about ankle and prolo work.

From your own link...

It is important to remember, the even though there are some success stories and small studies that show benefit, we really don't know if PRP is worth the expense of this treatment.

Once again...

There is LITTLE TO NO EVIDENCE this "treatment" actually WORKS....

THAT is why insurance won't pay for it

As has been pointed out to you EVERY time you make this statement..

IF your "Dr Darrow" actually said this then he IS WRONG....

Keep repeating this nonsense over and over, doesn't make it true....

It could take " a lot of time for the stem cells to work" seeing as there is NO evidence they do ANYTHING at all, certainly they DO NOT REGROW OR REPAIR cartilage and anyone who tells you different is a LIAR

People absolutely have "bone on bone" arthritis and can still "bend their knees"

If one were to wait until they couldn't "bend their knee" to have a knee replacement they might still benefit from the replacement with pain but they still would NOT be able to bend their knee...

But it's OK for the "Fring" insurance to pay for HA injections that hardly work, they worked for me on two occasions and that cortisone injections can or can't work for a short time and do break down cartlidge even more. These two alone costs insurance providers thousands also. Keep ignoring this one.

I remember when I had a Synvisc (HA) injection over 8 years ago, the cost was $1000 per shot, not counting the charge for the doctor's time.

The person who I know who received stem cell therapy last week - stem cells from her bone marrow injected into her knees - apparently is willing to try it just on the slim chance that it might work.

The PRP procedures apparently worked on some athletes who needed help in healing injuries. I don't know all the details, but apparently PRP can help the healing of some injuries or has been said to help some, as opposed to increasing mobility and lessening pain of people who have osteoarthritis in a knee and a significant loss of cartilage.
