I received the ARP wave post surgery therapy and it helped me with a faster recovery, less swelling, less pain, and better range of motion. I received excellent care and results from this treatment.By all means consider Dr. Darr. I have had very positive results with two separate total knee replacement procedures. I have absolutely no pain while doing all activities of daily living now.

I received two of the PRP injections. First procedure the pain got progressively better as each of the seven weeks went by. The second procedure relieved top of the shoulder pain and back. Dr. Darr gave me quality care and expertise of my shoulder problem. He used his knowledge to determine where the injections needed to be done. I have already referred Dr. Darr to people and I will continue to refer patient to him.

I had a rotator cuff surgery because I was experiencing so much shoulder and arm pain. I couldn’t do normal activities. Since the surgery I feel like I got my life back. I can work, exercise, and do things I enjoy again. I can’t thank him enough. Dr. Darr provided great care. He was patient, explained all my options, and listened to my questions and concerns. He has excellent skills in terms of medical treatment and personal interaction. I never felt like a number. I have already referred him to other patients and told them that Dr. Darr will go above and beyond to help his patients.

I had shoulder surgery and was amazed at the short recovery time. I no longer have pain. I am confident that I won’t have any pain in the future and that gives me peace of mind. Dr. Darr is extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to ensure you understand what is happening, what your options are, and what to expect for those options. He allows you to become empowered to make the best decisions for your care. I would recommend everyone to go to Dr. Darr. He is the only one in the area that I would recommend.

I did the ARP wave treatment and it made my knees stronger. It helped stabilize my knee and allowed me to march with my band again with no pain. With the ARP treatment, there is a lot of time spent one on one with you. Dr. Darr and his staff also care a lot about your personal well-being. They helped me a lot with my recovery.

I had severe pain in both knees. After the PRP injection in the left knee and the combined Cellular Therapy injection in the right knee, my pain decrease to zero pain after 2 weeks. I have started paying tennis and golf again with minimal pain in both my knee after 5 months. Dr. Darr did an outstanding job and explained what both the PRP and Combined Cellular therapy was all about and answered all my questions. He also did not promise any unrealistic goals. All of Dr. Darr’s staff was outstanding during the procedure. I would recommend Dr. Darr to friends that have knee and joint issues due to sports.
– Thomas B., March 28th, 2014
Since the ARP wave therapy, I have little pain now. I can now walk without limping. The quality of care was outstanding. Dr. Darr and his staff really care about you and how much you want to get better. All of my concerns and questions were answered. I would highly recommend Dr. Darr and his staff to anyone, they take the time to address all of your concerns.
– Sherry J., March 23rd, 2014
I had PRP injection and I feel that this procedure dramatically accelerated my recovery from a tibia plateau fracture. I was off crutches and cane in just 4 weeks. Dr. Darr was very diligent, patient, and answered all of my questions thoroughly. Patients should expect very professional care from all personnel at Covington Orthopaedic from support staff to Dr. Darr.
– Shelby R., March 21st, 2014
I had a total hip replacement by Dr. Darr and I am close to 100% improvement. I can walk without limping and with almost no pain at all from time of surgery. Dr. Darr showed great concern for my health and was very comforting to know that as a Christian believer that he prayed prayer was important before surgery. Dr. Darr was excellent and I would recommend him to anyone.
– Charles T., March 21st, 2014
I received the combined Cellular Therapy treatment (PRP, Bone Marrow Aspiration and Fat Graft) on my hip and it has been wonderful. I currently feel 90% better than when I came in 6 weeks ago. By day 11, I started feeling good and have gotten better every day from there. Dr. Darr and Daryl Stanga, PA are both very personable, professional, and have a great bedside manner. I would recommend to all of my friends and family to go and talk with them about all of their orthopedic problems.

I received the combined procedure of PRP and ARP wave; they made my healing process so much better. The ARP wave gave me back movement that I couldn’t get in regular therapy and to me this was a complete success. The whole process was handled with care and professionalism.What stands out for me is that it was important to Dr. Darr that I was healthy and happy. Dr. Darr was willing to do whatever it took to get me there and back to work. I couldn’t have asked for better care from Dr. Darr and his staff. They truly care about their patients’ well-being. Dr. Darr is unlike any other doctor and is up to date on the latest procedures that will benefit his patients.

Dr. Darr performed my right and left hip surgery. Before my surgeries, I could barely walk and I was in constant pain. My new hips were life changing and my pain is gone now. Dr. Darr is the very best, I would not go to anyone else. His staff is very helpful and they make you feel like part of a family. Dr. Darr is a very special person and the hospital stay was great. I have already told a few people about how fortunate I was to be under his care. I am continuing to share my experience with others.
– Sylvia D., February 27, 2014
Two months ago I underwent shoulder surgery implemented by Dr. Darr. I now feel 100% better than before my surgery. The quality of care received by Dr. Darr is very compassionate and helpful. Dr. Darr is very easy to talk to, very knowledgeable and caring. I would and already have recommend friends to see Dr. Darr.
– Tammy D., February 27, 2014
The PRP treatments get rid of the pain and gradually made walking pain-free. The ARPWave helped to wake “up” muscles that had not been used in almost 18 months so that I could begin to climb stairs again.I never felt rushed by anyone doctor, NP, and/or staff, they always had full attention. They felt concerned for what I was experiencing and a true desire to help me through this experience. I have recommend Dr. Darr to everyone I know who has orthopedic issues. He is the best.
– Beverly K., February 27, 2014
I received the ARP Wave procedure conducted by Dr. Darr. My pain and edema has improved tremendously. The care Dr. Darr has provided me has been excellent. He’s simply the best, I have recommended him too many people already.
– Mary E., February 27, 2014
I went from not being able to get around to riding bikes and going to the gym. I am happy with the friendly atmosphere and the great nurses who cared for me. I would recommend Dr. Darr highly.
– John G., February 27, 2014
I received the ARP Wave procedure treatment from Dr. Darr. I now have less pain in my knees and hip and I am more conscious of evenly distribution of weight. Very helpful. I was encouraged even when I wanted to give up. Charnell DiMiceli did an excellent job. I appreciated the way I was cared for, it was time well spent. Dr. Darr truly was invested in helping me find the cause of my pain. He didn’t stop until the last operation was performed and he discovered a “sac” of infection. He immediately took the steps to resolve the infection. He is my “HERO.”.
– Kathleen D., February 27, 2014
I was enrolled in the ARP wave program when I was 6 months out from a left shoulder surgery. I was coming along slowly but still lacked full range of motion, some minor pain every once in a while, and some strength loss in that shoulder. The ARP wave therapy was incredible. The sessions were not easy, but not painful either and the results were well worth it. I now have 95% range of motion, where before I only had 70%. My occasional pain in the side of the shoulder is now gone and I feel stronger and more confident to really start working it out at the gym. I am now confident enough to work towards increasing the amount of weight that I lift since the ARP wave therapy.
– Robert B., February 25 2014
I did both PRP and ARP Wave and was cured without having surgery. Dr. Darr was very good as he gave me different options for treatment. I was very happy to have the option of taking the ARP Wave and the PRP. I think he is the best orthopedic doctor. I would recommend him to anyone that has a problem.
– Thomas B., November 12, 2013
I was so thrilled to find that Dr. Darr was offering the PRP injections. I have a very active lifestyle. Due to joint pain in my knees, I was beginning to adjust my activities. I damaged my knee hiking to Mount Everest Base Camp. Not wanting to have surgery again, I opted for the PRP injections. I noticed immediately an improvement after the first injection on my right knee. The pain decreased and the muscles in that area became stronger. I have had three injections on my right knee, and have seen improvement each time. My knee is feeling so much better and my muscles’ definition is back. I am so much stronger that I am scheduling a hike in Peru next year.

The PRP injection was the best thing that ever happened to me. After 4 months, I am 100% better and can get on the floor and play with my grandchildren again.

I am a 60 year-old marathoner and triathlete. A volley ball game jump set off my knee in the middle of training for the Big Sur race. Dr. Darr fit me into his schedule, diagnosed the exact problem and did the surgery. I have recovered faster, with less pain and no setbacks than I experienced from similar surgeries in the past. I was back running and training in time to do the race, which was only four months after the surgery. Dr. Darr’s handling of all aspects of treatment was the best, most proactive care I have ever received.
