After Cellular Therapy went really well. I don’t have very much pain, just a little every now and then. I feel so much better; I have a better outlook about my future health and comfort. I am very satisfied with my care. Time spent with me was plenty and of very good quality. I am feeling better after this treatment. I feel much better because of this good treatment, good doctor, and good staff.

After having combined cellular therapy, I have less pain and am able to carry out various activities of daily life with improved quality of life. Dr. Darr carefully explained the procedure and carried it out with very minimal discomfort. Dr. Darr is a very involved and caring physician using state-of-the-art technology to improve his patients’ quality of life.

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 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 playing tennis and golf again with minimal pain in both my knees 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.
