-Am I a Candidate for BMAC or PRP Therapy?
Only you and your doctor can decide if these treatments are right for you. If you want to try and avoid surgery and potentially get long-lasting pain relief, we encourage you to learn more about these options and talk to our expert.
-Who are the best candidates for these treatments?
The "best patients" are:
-In the early stages of arthritis
-Have tried other treatments such as rest, modifying activities, physical therapy or home exercises, weight loss, cortisone injections, but are not yet ready for joint replacement or other surgeries.
- BMAC or PRP injections are not typically recommended for severe cases of osteoarthritis as these patients are much more reliably treated with joint replacement.
-Are the treatments covered by insurance?
These procedures are considered experimental by insurance carriers, and thus are considered a self-pay service.
-Are these treatments safe?
These treatments offer a safe option for patients looking to improve pain and quality of life, potentially avoid or postpone surgery and get back to enjoying life with less pain and limitation. The exact risks of the procedure will be discussed in clinic with our specialist prior to having the procedure performed. Our physician only recommends the safest, most effective treatment based on a patient’s condition, history and overall health.
