Another example of the scam stem cell clinics in action. In this case, a chiropractor James Briggs presented himself as “Dr. Briggs” and charged this poor woman $5000 for a scam injection that was not even a real stem cell injection. This DC had already lost his license in one state and it was suspended in another state AND he had been arrested for Medicare fraud. Please do your homework….come see us for an honest eval and procedures that don’t violate current FDA rules and regulations.
Don Buford, MD, the Director of the Institute, will be holding 1 hour evening seminars on Tuesdays in November….the 7th, 14th, and 28th. Seminars will run from 6p – 7p.
In a 5 minute procedure under local anesthesia, we can see into your knee or shoulder for diagnosis and to guide PRP and stem cell injections. The procedure is covered by insurance companies!
The whole process takes 45 minutes… see the short video below done by Christopher Centeno, MD which simply explains why those facilities selling these products as “stem cell” injections are committing consumer fraud. If you want a real stem cell injection….it has to come from your own body in the USA right now!
Last Friday I saw two patients for evaluation for possible stem cell treatment for painful knee arthritis. Both patients were on medications, had received multiple knee steroid shots, and one had even had one of the “gel” knee injections that go under the trade names like “Synvisc” or “Hyalgan”. One of the patients also had been prescribed an unloader brace but didn’t want to wear it anymore.
This patient is in his 50’s and has advanced hip arthritis bad enough for a surgeon to recommend a hip replacement. After less invasive treatments did not help, we did a bone marrow derived stem cell injection into the right hip in the office. No surgery, no general anesthesia, no joint replacement, and done in less than an hour. You can hear how he is doing in his own words here. Results vary…this is meant to be one example!
