Stem Cell Therapy

You will never be younger than you are at this moment.  There is no time like the present if you want to save some of your stem cells for use in the future.

The younger the stem cells are, the more active they will be.

As stem cell therapy becomes more popular, you are more likely to want to choose stem cell therapy instead of a knee replacement or shoulder surgery.   We as insurers should make our voices heard.  If you are part of an insurance group, the insurance company “should” try to cut costs as well as poor outcomes.

In Denver, a hip replacement costs about $57,000.  A knee replacement costs about $48,000.  You can get stem cell therapy for less than $10,000.

The insurance companies will say it is an experimental procedure.  How long will they need to perform these procedures before they are normal practice and not experimental?

Just consider the poor outcomes from surgery.  I don’t have to write about it as you have friends and stories that are as good as mine.

There is always the possibility of problems from surgery.

And the rehab for the joint replacements are not fun.  It is hard work.

As it stands now, anyone who wants to try the stem cell therapy has to pay out of pocket.

How much more is  your insurance is because they won’t pay for stem cell?

Why don’t insurance companies cover stem cell?  You could always have the surgery if the stem cell doesn’t work, but there would be far fewer surgeries and far fewer poor outcomes.

I don’t  do these procedures so I don’t have a horse in the race as they say.  But common sense says surgery carries a lot more problems than stem cell.  Here is an article from a Dr. who has done stem cell for 20 years.  Enjoy!

  1. I had no idea that you could choose stem cell therapy instead of shoulder surgery. It is important to remember that taking the time to educate yourself on how this therapy works can help you choose the best way to help you get better. A friend of mine was talking about how she was looking into stem cell therapy, so I wanted to see what all the fuzz was about too.

    1. Yes, I’m sure there are many people who are unaware of stem cell options but it is getting more and more popular. Insurance, if they were interested in costs and results, would be willing to pay the $5000 or so for stem cell therapy instead of the $100,000 surgery. But, money talks. However, I do think it will become more and more popular!
