About two months ago, a San Diego patient presented with a partially torn meniscus. Although he already had an appointment for surgery on the books, he decided to try regenerative medicine–in this case a platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection–to boost his body’s powers to heal itself.
This week Dr. Bunyak saw the patient for a two-month follow-up appointment and discovered he’s feeling 50% better. As he left BOUNDLESS he decided to trade his original surgery appointment (forthcoming and still on the books) with one for a second PRP injection.
This success story mirrors that of another patient with a partially torn meniscus; he showed such improvement post-PRP treatment that he has avoided surgery and has returned to his hobby of umpiring weekend little league games. Play ball!
