Why choose PRP over Stem Cells (MSC’s, Umbilical and Amniotic) first?

Advanced regenerative treatments are NOT covered by insurance, and there are a lot of clinics that use this to take advantage of patients by selling treatments that are misrepresented.  Never trust a clinic that promises results that are too good to be true. We at Wake Nonsurgical Ortho & Sports Medicine we try to have honest conversations with our patients about our outcomes.

So why choose PRP?  There are many reasons that we suggest trying PRP first, but we factor in the cost, patient outcomes, and the actual research that is available.  The evidence is actually really good for PRP in reducing pain for various conditions.

Same day spun PRP also contains some stem cells that circulate in the blood.  While they may not be in the same concentration as a fat or bone marrow aspirate,  we know that stem cells do circulate in human blood.

BEFORE you pay thousands of dollars on advanced regenerative treatments we would suggest taking with Dr. Kanaan about all options and we would suggest trying PRP before jumping straight into stem cells (MSCs, umbilical , amniotic, etc).

Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?

Many patients are do well with stem cell therapy.  By this, we mean a decrease in pain levels and an increase in activities.  Any clinic claiming to regenerate your tissue, and charging $10,000 to do that, should be thought of as misleading and you should promptly exit that office.

How much does Stem Cell Therapy cost? 

Our current price of  stem cell therapy is $2850.00 per treatment.

*Insurance does not currently cover stem cell therapy despite a growing body of evidence in support of this procedure.  We take many payment options.
