Good question. Yet most injured athletes end up seeing a surgeon.
Like Mark, who 10 years earlier had injured his right knee in a mountain bike fall. His pain and disability had worsened to the point that 2 years ago he began to consult with orthopedic surgeons. After physiotherapy had failed, his surgeon had recommended meniscus repair (code for removing part of the meniscus) or total joint replacement. Just 8-months after complehensive PRP treatment he has regained 100% of his normal, pain-free function. And he still has his original equipment meniscus.
