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. Stem cells and PRP both have very limited data to support them! Never trust a clinic that promises results that are too good to be true.
There is a reason insurance doesn’t cover these procedures, and that is because the data is lacking.
We at Wake Sports Medicine try to have honest conversations with our patients about our outcomes , but we will never make grand promises.
So why choose PRP? Simply it is MUCH cheaper. $500- $1000.00 for PRP injections. Stem cells cost $3500.00 – $8000.00 at some clinics.
And the evidence is actually pretty good for PRP in reducing pain for various conditions. See below.
