Title: conditions for stem cell therapy of the knee?
Post by: rayrockwood on February 03, 2012, 05:26:32 AM
Hello all, ;D
Im new to the board and see that many of you have had stem cell therapy for cartilage damage and I was wondering if any of you know if having regular prp therapy w/o out stem cells before a stem cell procedure would negate the effectiveness of subsequent prp/stem cell combo therapies. As of this moment my insurance covers prp but not stem cell therapy >:( and Id like to have it but don't want to lessen my odds of having a successful combo therapy as that is my long term plan. Thanks
Ray
