Manville,Why did you think that The Centeno clinic has no Ortho Surgeons to be odd? They are a Pain Management clinic and the regenexx procedure is not surgery. It is strictly withdrawl and injections with needles.
Like any new product that hits the market it needs to be advertised so the general public knows it's out there, correct? How many Viagra commercials did you see when their product hit the market? I'm not looking to get into a debate here, those are just some of the questions that pop into my mind when you bash them for advertising. As far as the fees, if what you said is true, then that's not right and you should argue your case.As a side note, I was doing some more research and came across a product that just got released to the public in South Korea. Cartistem is the name. I couldn't find to much info but it does look promising. Something to keep an eye on at least.Another good read is this...http://www.journalofprolotherapy.com/free_issue_11/issue_11_03_stem_cell_regenerative_medicine/issue_11_stem_cell_regenerative_medicine_01.php
I must admit, I wasn't expecting in my telephone consultation with a Regenexx doctor, finding out that on top of the -sd injection I would need to pay for prelim PRP injections and a recommended -scp injection after. Not to mention paying for IMS injections, an ankle brace, registry to ICMS, infared gadget and daily supplements. Perhaps all these likely costs should be outlined in Regenexx's procedures explained page. It certainly would of cushioned the blow when I found out these costs during my telephone consultation. I hope this helps anyone planning a phone call.
