When your Hip is in Need of Stem Cells


Tampa, Saint Petersburg and Clearwater, Fl

Hip osteoarthritis is a common malady. Pain, debility and suffering is common. All too often surgery is recommended. Total hip replacement is often recommended. Often, patients desire an alternative to surgery, especially total hip replacement. Today is the dawn of regenerative medicine. Procedures such as Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) are becoming more common alternatives to hip surgery. Research is readily available.
