Stem cell treatments have been known to yield positive results for both famous athletes and the general population alike. To cite a few famous examples, Cristiano Ronaldo used stem cell therapy to be able to treat his knees and keep playing soccer. Kobe Bryant and Rafael Nadal also used the treatment for their knees; Nadal returned for a treatment for his back, too. Jack Nicklaus mentions stem cell therapy for back pain as the solution that allowed him to return to golf.
Below are a few patient success stories from stem cell procedures administered at our offices in Denver and Vail, Colorado.
“After struggling with an Achilles injury for 1 1/2 years and trying everything to heal it – steroid, physical therapy, wearing a boot, no activity, stretching, etc – I decided to have stem cell therapy at ThriveMD. It was a short procedure and an afternoon of post op recovery, which after 6-8 weeks, resulted in a full recovery from my injury. This seemed to finally stimulate blood flow and healing to an injury I had resigned myself to having forever. I highly recommend this procedure for tendon injuries like this one.”*
“I am a runner, swimmer , cyclist and power walker. I am a Sr. Olympian and Director at a non-profit. Given all my activities I have had a few injuries… but by far the most debilitating was my achilles degenerating severely through the entire length. I was limping badly, had #10 burning pain along my right leg and achilles. I could not wear shoes with backs, could not wear socks, could not run nor walk much at all… could not use fins in the pool, jump, stand on my toes and so much more. When I walked, I dragged my right leg behind me. My life was based on my achilles pain…that’s all I could focus on and work to lessen. I saw a PT to no avail for months. On occasion in the pool I would kick up and hit the pool lane and would come out of the water screaming and it would set me back even more…limping with pain more than before. Anything that touched my Achilles created more pain.
A fellow swimmer mentioned that his friend had stem cells implanted to regenerate the cells and I began to do my own research. I actually read research and discovered that bone marrow stem cells implanted into the achilles had a very positive result. I began to search Drs in Albuquerque who did this procedure and found none that did the procedure I wanted. Finally, in searching online I found Dr. Brandt.
I contacted his office, sent my MRI, and then had a zoom consultation. He was kind, patient and answered all my questions. A few months later I was in Denver for my first treatment. The office arranged everything. A month or so later I had my second treatment.
A year later, my focus is on living life, exercising, competing, and having a pain-free life. I hardly ever think about my Achilles anymore. I am not limping, have ZERO pain, and can wear any shoe or sock I want. I can use fins in the pool. I can take Pilates on the reformer …that would have never happened in the past. Just this am in the shower I dropped a big bottle of shampoo and it hit my Achilles. NO PAIN AT ALL. I thank Dr. Brandt and his staff for helping me to have my life back.”*
