Prodigy Stem Cell
Prodigy Stemcell offers therapies that harness the body’s regenerative capabilities to bring patients hope and options. Hope that surgery can be avoided, and tissue injury can be repaired with the ability to do things like play with your kids again, go hiking, swimming, ride a bike and be… Pain-Free!
Existing pain management therapies have been great for suppressing pain by masking discomfort with medications such as cortisone, opiates, or anti-inflammatory medications.
These treatments work well for relief, but they don’t actually FIX the PROBLEM! It’s like placing a Bandaid over the issue, but the underlying painful issue remains.
