IAGH -- Inter-articular Growth Horomone
« on: March 10, 2013, 05:57:38 AM »
Hi there,

Has anyone personally had this procedure done?  Did you have it done by Dr. Dunn of Florida?

Also, has anyone had this done for a patella lesion?  Since the patella does not seem to be within the joint space (i.e. synovium) I don't think it could be healed in this fashion.

Thanks for the responses.

Jeff

I am also interested in this type of procedure. I am actually thinking of doing injections of HGH or IGF-1 or testosterone myself into my own knee for patella femoral problems. If anyone can shed some light on this area that would be great. I am located in Ontario Canada so I cant afford to go to florida + pay for the procedure itself, and to do this multiple times, because apparently you are looking at about 5-10 treatments/ trips once a month. Thats a hell a lot of money for something that may not help that much.

I had the procedure done by Dunn. I had some great results, and can show you pictures of xrays even. Just pm me. As far as healing your patella lesion, I could not say, I'd suggest posing that question to Dunn himself perhaps.

While I had great results, it was not cheap and travel can be a hassle so I'm exploring alternatives to continue my road to recovery.

I am interested in Dr Dunn's treatment and whether anyone is doing it in Europe.

I am based in London, and think I may well have to consider self injection.

But where to I then get the rHGH from?

Up to date, the only true evidence of real cartilage recovery and demonstrated growth has came from HGH. Aside Dr. Dunn, I know many doctors in US are mixing it with PRP or stem cells as well, even though they don't mention it in their websites directly... but they do to their clients in person.

This is what I am exploring at the moment, but would have to travel to US (from Europe) or would have to find... alternative ways...

I am locking this thread, as I think it is dangerous for our readers to think I support self injection into the knee joint.
