In Toledo, Dr Kruse, Wildwood Family Practice, 419-578-7036
My doctor is Laurence McClish in Reno, NV. I think he is great! Come to our beautiful area, stay a couple of weeks cheaply at a casino, and enjoy the sites as well as have your procedure done!
Most traditional orthopedists would not recommend stem cell at this point as it is not FDA approved and insurance will not cover it. So what if FDA is behind the times? In a few years i’ll bet cells will be covered by insurance. Why Medicare would rather pay out $60,000. for surgery when $4500. may do it all, with no failures?
Has anyone ever heard of someone Not having Great results with cells?
Some people tell me their friend has had no luck but no detail. I know hip procedures have been downgraded to 50% success rate. My friend had it done and is happy with it. His wife had her wrist done. One person said regenexx is expensive. I have no way to know. Their is a chiropractor in our area doing it but I am not looking that direction. Another office opened up that is a business but I can not find out any information on them. Hopefully the medical community will do the research and allow insurance to cover it. Think of the savings.
I was hoping but did not have any relief from stem cells put in my knee
Were PRP shots included before and after? These seem to really help the results. I had one 5 days before, one right after, one a week after and one 6 weeks after. My doc thinks they are crucial to the work of the stem cells.
SO, u had surgery and cells before and after.?
No. I had PRP shots before and after my stem cell procedure. No surgery.
Why do you think that happened? How much $? Cause I can get them for $4500. or $2000. so something is different.
What happened after that? Surgery?
Your doctor sounds great–can you give his contact information, location and any other relevant information. Thanks so much!
