After 3 Orthopedic surgeons told me I needed a total hip replacement, I tried prolotherapy and PRP up here in Seattle. The pain continued and had gotten severe enough that I was making plans for surgery. Then a friend told us about stem cells, and we saw Dr. Peterson and I had my first stem cell treatment October 2013. Within 5-weeks I was having a lot less pain, and I was able to use my hip in ways I had not been able to for 5 years. Now, 8 months later I can say I’m 80-85% back to full function and use of my hip and no pain, and I’m still seeing gradual improvement. I tell everyone with a bad knee or hip or back about my results and those that have seen Dr. Peterson have all had great results.
