Is Stem Cell Therapy a Good Alternative to Surgery?

what to expect at neogenix 2

Stem cell therapy and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections can be a viable alternative to traditional surgery for many reasons such as faster recovery time, high success rate, low health risks & low rejection risks, affordable, minimally invasive, and localized to only the affected areas. In this article, we will go into a further explanation as to how stem cell therapy could be a benefit to you.

How affordable are regenerative treatments vs. traditional surgery? 

Traditional surgery costs upwards of $60,000, leaving those without insurance or high deductible plans with an outstanding bill. Neogenix offers payment options that are a fraction of traditional surgery costs, providing more accessible rates with long-lasting results. Orthopedic surgery spending has increased 44 percent since 2010. Patients are searching for an affordable alternative.

 NeoGenix’s top priority is, and always will be, the patients. With our patients in mind during these difficult times, NeoGenix provides affordable interest-free payment plans for regenerative treatments and certain parts of the treatment process can be covered by select insurances or HSA’s. We pride ourselves on transparency throughout the process from beginning to end to ensure our patients are well informed at every step. Healthcare and affordability have not always been said within the same sentence, which is why we guarantee to work with all patients to ensure the entire NeoGenix experience is pleasant from check-in to check-out.

Benefits and Recovery Time

The recovery time for traditional surgery vs. regenerative alternatives is different. How long will I be out of work to recover? How long will the procedure take? How far in advance do I have to plan? These are all important questions when considering treatment options. With our minimally invasive procedures, you can walk in and out the same day, with the recovery time ranging within a few days. Quick recovery can mean less work loss or daily activities, saving you money and time in the long run. You can expect a typical procedure to take less than an hour, with most patients experiencing pain-free results in as little as a few weeks. That can make the difference between losing time away from friends and family and enjoying your daily life without fear of pain or worsening symptoms.

 PRP injections and stem cell therapy are considered low-risk, with typical side effects consisting of mild soreness of the injection site and affected areas. Research has shown there are low to no risks associated with alternative therapies such as PRP injections and stem cell therapies due to the more natural process of using the patient’s own plasma and cells to rebuild the body, leaving little room for infection or an allergic reaction from your body’s own resources. The proteins within the plasma act as an accelerant for the body to heal quicker and repair the damaged tissue.

Is Regenerative Medicine Procedures Successful Long-Term?

With regenerative medicine, the most commonly asked question is how long are the effects? How many treatments are required to feel lasting or complete relief? Just as each patient’s needs are unique, so are the requirements needed to treat the problem areas. The first step in our process is to get to know you as a patient with a free consultation where you have the opportunity to discuss the most effective treatment plan for you. You could experience complete relief from only a few treatments alone for some patients with minor injuries! Other patients who may have more extensive ailments or injuries may benefit from more frequent procedures. With our therapies, patients who need multiple procedures will discover their symptoms improving gradually over time, resulting in fewer visits and saving more money long-term.
