We hear the same questions over and over again when a prospective patient contacts our office to find out about regenerative treatment options for joint and spine conditions using orthobiologics such as PRP. Based on the questions we hear, it’s become obvious that consumers and physicians alike are inundated with confusing and oftentimes fraudulent claims about regenerative therapies these days.
Just look around and you’ll notice that new “Regenerative Medicine Experts” seem to be popping up all over the place. This means that as a patient, you need to know how to screen your provider and know what questions to ask in order to make educated decisions regarding your practitioner, treatment options, and care.
So how do you know if the physician offering you a regenerative medicine therapy is truly an expert in the field? And how can you be sure you’re not getting oversold, being lied to, or worse, being put at unnecessary risk by an undertrained practitioner?
What type of doctor should I seek out?
Does my doctor actually have the skills and tools to diagnose and treat my condition using regenerative injection therapies?
What’s the difference between amniotic fluid stem cell therapy and stem cells that come from my own bone marrow? (Hint – this is a trick question!)
What is regenerative medicine anyway?
Am I being sold a treatment by a highly-skilled specialist, or a salesperson with a medical license who happens to have taken a weekend course in “regenerative medicine”?
These questions and more will be addressed in our upcoming educational webinar: How to Select Your Regenerative Medicine Expert
Please join us on Tuesday, November 10th at 6 pm! The event is free and attendees will receive a special offer!
