We can do so much for patients via telemedicine!
We are still able to see patients in need for some of our office based PRP or bone marrow concentrate injections also.
With elective surgical procedures still not allowed in most of the USA, many patients are now considering orthobiologic injections and discovering that they may be able;e to delay or avoid surgery altogether!
We can do telemedicine consults for new patients and answer all your questions from the comfort of your own home.

The Texas Orthobiologic Institute (877-777-8883) ☎️ is still open to help patients in pain 😖 and with orthopedic injuries and conditions that need to be diagnosed and treated.

We are using telemedicine whenever possible.
We can work across state lines and telemedicine makes that easier.
There are some orthopedic conditions that still need to go to surgery like infections, some tendon ruptures, etc. You don’t need to go to the ER or even come in to the office.
Many patients have had their surgery delayed so we using medications and PRP injections where appropriate to minimize their pain (avoid 🚫steroid shots! avoid 🚫narcotics!).
We can do in office bone marrow concentrate injections without depleting hospital PPE so we can still help our patients with these cutting edge orthobiologic therapies during this stressful time!
Call us if you have ANY questions about how we can help you or your patients or loved ones heal or minimize their pain while they may have to wait months for their elective surgeries to be allowed.
#1 If their advertising lists multiple conditions from orthopedics to autism to autoimmune disorders to cerebral palsy to heart failure…..they are not legitimate and they are sam artists…and almost certainly breaking the law for using drugs not approved by the FDA in ways not approved by the FDA. Run away.
#2 If they are advertising treating medical conditions for which they have NO training….ie…an anesthesiologist treating kidney or orthopedic or neurologic disorders……Runaway, fast.
#3 If they are promoting amniotic fluid, umbilical cord blood, Wharton’s Jelly, Exosomes, or anything that doesn’t come from your own body…. Run away. Many of these clinics have permanently harmed people and there are lawsuits across the country against clinics that have used these products on people.
The Screen capture above is just one example of a local DFW clinic that is doing everything wrong in my opinion….see that they raise every red flag. I have now seen 3 patients who have spent thousands of dollars at that clinic and they are not happy!
Great to see Kristy Weber, MD, President of AAOS (American Academy Of Orthopedic Surgeons) advertise for Academy evidence based orthobiologic lectures at the upcoming Annual Meeting. Drs. Dragoo and Halbrecht and Feeley have lectures that should at least promote interest amongst the 30,000 orthopedic surgeons in the USA. Orthopedic surgeons see patients daily who may benefit from orthobiologics and we are approaching a time where simply refusing to be educated about the positive and negative evidence is not going to be an option if you want to be a good doctor/surgeon and a patient advocate. Orthobiologics costs are at a point where other alternatives are actually more expensive when you consider length of benefit, complications, recovery time, and patient satisfaction.
Knee pain? Back Pain? Hip pain? Shoulder pain? Any pain?? Come see us and get a thoughtful opinion from an orthopedic surgeon who evaluates all patients and does all of the procedures….and has been for 15 years! We do these regenerative procedures (PRP and bone marrow stem cells) for less than other clinics where you never even meet an orthopedist. Come get your own personalized plan and “Chalkboard explanation” of ALL of the options.
There are almost too many red flags to count with the advertising of Stem Cell USA. http://stemcellusa.co
#1 The clinic lists NO doctor or health care, provider
#2 The clinic lists a wide variety of human conditions that they can treat with stem cells
#3 The clinic lists its stem cell source as placental stem cells….which means they are openly advertising a treatment in violation of FDA section 351 regulations and are selling and using an unapproved and misbranded biologic drug.(!!!)
Please tell your friends and loved ones interested in orthobiologics and regenerative medicine not to be scammed by these types of disreputable clinics and people (not even sure if there is a doctor associated with this one!)
This clinic has already been reported to the FDA and Texas State Medical Board……but consider this a public service announcement!
