Orthopedic Areas of Interest for Stem Cell Therapy

Please Note: If you are having a stem cell therapy procedure in conjunction with another surgical procedure, your recommendations may change. Consult with your physician on the guidelines and restrictions for your specific case.

No. Because mesenchymal stem cell injections are considered investigational for orthopedic applications, most insurance companies will not cover the cost. Please contact our office to discuss cash payment options.

Your out-of-pocket cost will vary, depending upon whether you have stem cell therapy independent of or in conjunction with another surgical procedure. Our current pricing for stem cell therapy is as follows:
