A patient of Dr. Christopher Rogers, Kristi Plume, has had successful PRP injections for two separate injuries. A torn rotator cuff was healed within 2 months of receiving the injection, by healing the tendon. Within 2-3 after the injection, Ms. Plume was pain free and able to resume full use of her shoulder and arm.
Only months later, Ms. Plume underwent PRP injections to treat osteoarthritis in both of her knees. The injections allowed her to get back to doing what she loves:
I’ve received PRP treatments from Dr. Rogers twice now for 2 different injuries. The first injury, a torn rotator cuff, completely healed within 2 months of receiving the PRP injection. It was quite fascinating to see the “before” and “after” ultrasound pictures, whereas the “before” showed a moderate tear and the “after” showed nothing but a healed tendon. Moreover, I was pain free and able to resume use of my shoulder/arm within 2-3 weeks from the date of the procedure. The first procedure was so successful, I underwent a PRP procedure again a few months ago for osteoarthritis in both of my knees. The PRP treatments have quite literally changed my life by allowing me to return to the active lifestyle I’ve always enjoyed. In addition, I avoided costly surgery, long-recovery times, and permanent, long-term pain and discomfort. I have full use of both my shoulder and knees without pain or discomfort. Dr. Rogers has a flawless bedside manner and he and his team of professionals deliver first class service to make their patients feel truly cared about. I cannot recommend San Diego Orthobiologics Medical Group enough.
Kristi Plume has use of her shoulders and knees without any pain or discomfort.
Nancy is an active woman in her 50s who suffered from shoulder pain after undergoing rotator cuff surgery. Dr Ambach treated her with Platelet Rich Therapy (PRP) and now Nancy has full range of motion and is living pain free!
I spent year dealing with chronic pain and flair ups. The PRP with Dr. Ambach and then my work with Megan at Evolve Physical Therapy has been life changing.
