Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Andy Chen - Can't believe I didn't see this man sooner. Back in Oct of 2019, I injured my right shoulder and had pain for weeks... I had a partial right rotator cuff tear and I DID NOT WANT SURGERY. I did a lot of online research and found a great doctor right in my area that offered regenerative medicine. I was very skeptical about these procedures like do they really work? I did not want to spend that kind of money if it doesnt work. During our initial consult dr. chacko was able to answer all my questions and reassure me of my insecurities. Got an apptment in the same week for the injection! The entire procedure itself was very simple, took around 30-45mins? I was initially alarmed when I didn't feel any pain relief after two weeks. Doc spoke with me over the phone that it was still pretty early that it generally takes 4-6 weeks. Came back the following month for a booster injection definitely recommend that. It's been 2 months since the PRP injections and I have to say my right shoulder feels great! My strength and range of motion is back and I'm no longer in pain.
I had a PRP injection for my knee with Dr. Chacko last year and thankfully there hasn't been any pain since.
