Re: PRP and Stem Cell Injections for Patella Tear

Thanks Dizzy. I see in the post you mentioned that you had 2 PRP shots that seemed to help you.

I also see in your signature you had stem cell injections. Did you find the stem cells to help?? Does it make sense to try PRP and then go to Stem Cells or jump directly to stem cells?

The next 3-4 days the initial pain has gone away but I still can't bend fully without pain. If proloth...
