    Are you guys actively pursing insurance companies to be a part of your network. I have wanted to go to you again, but unfortunately my United Healthcare insurance does not cover your services.

    When getting stem cells and PRP, is it necessary to use the guidance system or can the Doctor simply look at MRI and use it to inject ??

    I have gleaned so much information from your blogs and thank you for all your research. My husband has Parkinson’s and we went to stemgenics 6 years ago. He did improve after treatment with his own cells enough that we went back the next year for a second treatment. He needs another treatment now and I have not seen anything about expanded cell treatment at least not in Texas where I thought it would be allowed at some point since “Charlie’s law”was passed. I know there are countries like South Korea, Iran, Israel that are doing more advanced treatments but we don’t want to go outside the US. Do you have any knowledge of advancements in expanded stem cell treatment here in the US. Thank you for any information you can provide.

      Regrettably, I’m sorry to say that there are no culture-expanded stem cell treatments in the US at this time.

    I read an article about a study in mice using micro fractures and certain proteins to start growth of new cartilage in knees. Can you comment on this? Clinical trial needing patients? I’d be a volunteer.

    Do you review MRI’s? I’ve seen so many doctors & get different reports. I’ve already had surgery 4 years ago & still having issues with my hip. You seem like you know what you’re talking about!

    1. Chris Centeno, MD Post author

      Yes, I always read the MRI myself and often find things the radiologist didn’t as I’m looking with a different pair of eyes and trying to ID things that they’re not looking for.
