FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Answer Your Questions About Stem Cell Therapy
How are stem cells and platelet rich plasma collected?
Is stem cell and PRP therapy safe?
That being said, your doctor’s experience does matter and all cellular therapy treatments are not equal. In the last few years, awareness about cellular therapy has grown significantly and as a result, many non-specialists are adding it to their repertoire. We frequently hear these doctors and centers describing cellular therapies as “new” that we’ve already treated thousands of patients with. Inlet Physical Medicine’s mission is to give our patients the most effective treatment available, developed and administered by the best possible doctors in their fields.
All of our protocols and processing locations are certified by the institutional review board (IRB) which is FDA regulated.
Is more than one treatment needed?
What determines the outcome of my stem cell and PRP therapy?
We do not like to treat more than 2 areas at a time as the effectiveness can be decreased. Treating more than 1 area at a time is determined on a case-by-case basis.
Is there anything else I can do to increase the effectiveness of my therapy?
There are various conditions that can affect the progress of stem cell therapy, some positively, others negatively. Patients undergoing stem cell therapy or platelet-rich plasma treatments are advised to minimize their intake of alcohol, as consumption tends to delay the body’s ability to release stem cells. On the other hand, some supplements can help stimulate cell output. Your Inlet Physical Medicine health advisor will walk you through other steps you can take to maximize the effectiveness of your therapy.
How much downtime should I expect after stem cell therapy or PRP therapy?
How long does the repair process take?
Is this procedure covered by insurance?
