Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy For West Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale, Mesa, Phoenix, Prescott, AZ, and Surrounding Areas
As our clinics have grown, so have our services for our patients.
At Accident & Injury Solutions, we have been so successful at treating patients to avoid surgery that Dr. DeGroot started expanding services to offer patients another way to get back to a high quality of life. Many injuries may be a result of overuse, age, or genetic characteristics out of our control. And now Accident & Injury Solutions is bringing the best in Regenerative Medicine to our patients with PRP (platelet rich plasma) and stem cell therapy injections.
Regenerative medicine can be used for the following injuries:
- Muscle strains
- Inflamed joints
- Ligament sprains
- Injured tendons
- And more
Often these injuries are from overuse and are known under the name of golfer’s knee, tennis elbow or rotator cuff repair. The tissues that are damaged, including ligaments, cartilage, and tendons, have a poor ability to regenerate on their own. Add in overuse and aging, and these tissues will often never heal without intervention. Anti-inflammatory drugs, cortisone shots and physical therapy can only help treat the condition, not help heal it.
Affordable Regenerative Medicine
PRP (platelet rich plasma) and stem cell therapy injections are not covered by insurance as they are considered “experimental”. Don’t let this label or cost confuse you. Accident & Injury Solutions has had amazing success with outcomes and helping patients get back their quality of life. Part of this is due to the high quality of materials we use. We consider our source for stem cells one of the best. They come from amniotic fluid that has proven to be an excellent source for tissue growth and regeneration. The other element in our success is in Dr DeGroot’s passion for helping patients recuperate, recover, and regain their lives back. Dr. DeGroot stays up on the latest technology and industry information.
As for cost, Dr. DeGroot believes everyone should have quality of care at an affordable price. You’ll find the prices at AIS are very patient friendly and at a price-point thousands of dollars lower than other clinics in the Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, West Phoenix, Prescott, and surrounding areas.
Why Choose Regenerative Medicine through PRP (platelet rich plasma) and Stem Cell Therapy Injections?
Patients that choose regenerative medicine have often exhausted all other options and are willing to try one last approach before going through invasive surgery. Think of it this way, when looking back in five years, will you wish you had done this earlier? Would avoiding the long-term effect of surgery have been worth it? Would avoiding giving up the activities you love have been worth it? Of course!
You cannot put a price on the cost of your active lifestyle, keeping yourself healthy through exercise or enjoying the activities you love. Give yourself the gift of living the best life possible.
This, in addition to PRP (platelet rich plasma) and Stem cell injections are all considered “experimental” and the FDA is “currently evaluating” the efficacy for conditions such as tennis elbow and low back pain. 80% success is better than most surgical outcomes yet still not covered by insurance. For procedures that cost under $5000, an insurance company would jump on the idea versus spending 10 times that on a typical knee joint replacement with hospital care included.
Pain Management falls under “Standard of Care” which is a guideline that basically goes from less invasive to more invasive approaches to treat symptoms for a patient:
- Ice and Anti-inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen, Naproxen or Aspirin (NSAIDs)
- Physical Therapy
- Cortisone Shots (Steroid Anti-inflammatory)
- Viscosupplementation (Hyaluronic Acid or Rooster Comb Shots) into Joints
- Arthroscopic Surgery (Clean up or cut away loose tissues)
- Partial or Total Joint Replacement)
There is a predictable path of disease and degeneration that takes decades to occur and when a surgeon says that one day you will need a joint replacement, they are correct, given you follow this standard of care “disease” model. If only there were an alternative that can regenerate tissue…
There is a safe and effective way that doesn’t involve surgery, scars or drugs to actually work at regenerating tissue that, on its own, has a very poor ability to heal. Sounds too good to be true right? Well its all in the healing process of the body and basic physiology. No new cutting-edge designer drug here or fancy patent pending device. Simply sugar, your own blood and or stem cells (which are located throughout the body). Drug companies cannot make money off of this and the value is in the doctor’s skill and time; which has been devalued almost entirely in the conventional model of 10-minute visits and standard of care policies.
Currently, if a doctor thinks outside the box, they are liable to lose their license should something happen. Aren’t doctors trained to know how the body works and facilitate the healing process? In theory, Yes but in conventional practice, No! So as a practicing doctor who has been healing numerous patients who have the means to pay cash for these procedures, it has been incredibly rewarding and fulfilling to help them regain their lives and get out of pain. But I feel stunted in the number of people who I can help that simply cannot afford such procedures. I see the look in every patients’ eyes when I have to tell them it is NOT covered by insurance and that BREAKS MY HEART.
I completely understand how expensive insurance policies are with high monthly payments and even higher deductibles that never get met. The insurance companies and FDA are well aware of the success rates of Prolotherapy and Regenerative Injection Therapies. If I were on their side, this would be a threat to their financial gain that they have set in place. Awareness is the most important process at this point. As a citizen, I urge you to write to your local congress and your insurance company asking to include these into policy.
The world of Natural Medicine is gaining major growth and demand as the synthetic chemicals that we thought were safe are proving to have more and more long term side effects. Find a Naturopathic Physician wherever you are to be an advocate for your health and consider Regenerative Injection Therapies to resolve pain versus management of symptoms so you can start living your life to the best and brightest level.
