Thanks to the members of this board I learned about PRP and at my Dr. appt. follow up on my hip replacement I asked my Doc about it and was very surprised that he instantly knew what I was talking about because i could not find a PRP doc within 500 mi of me. He told me they had there own PRP Doc with in there osteio practice. So I'm gonna see him on the 25th of this mo. for my shoulder. I have consistently injured my shoulder at the bicept tie in. I didn't even need a referral because ins. doesn't pay but i think $1000 is worth getting my shoulder fixed if possible.
