KNEE PAIN

One of the largest and most essential joints in the body is the knee joint and any sort of injury to this joint will cause utmost inconvenience. The knee joint is a complex assembly of bones, ligaments, tendons and cartilage. Knee pain can be a result of damage to this joint either due to wear and tear or due to sudden impact.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Treatments for Knees

WHAT IS PRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is one of the latest cutting-edge pain management approaches in treating most sports injuries and other musculoskeletal conditions. This is a non-surgical procedure that provides fast, effective, and long-lasting relief from pain and discomfort. Read more

WHAT IS STEM CELL THERAPY?

Stem cell therapy is one of the most innovative procedures that uses mesenchymal cells in treating injuries, pain, and damaged tissues. This is a non-surgical and non-opioid procedure that produces minimal to no risk of complications or adverse effects. Read more

WHERE DO YOU GET THE PRP? WHERE DO YOU GET THE STEM CELLS?

The PRP and stem cells come from the patients themselves. The equipment Advanced Sports & Spine uses to process the PRP and stem cells is FDA cleared for that use.

HOW MUCH IS THE COST?

The cost depends on 2 main factors: how severe your condition is and how many joints or areas of the body you are looking to have treated. Dr. Ahmad and his team will be able to answer this question for you more thoroughly after your initial examination and review of diagnostic findings.

IS A PRP INJECTION COVERED BY INSURANCE?

Unfortunately, no insurance companies in the country cover PRP, so the treatments are self-pay. However, we have the most competitive pricing in the Carolinas with many different financing options, such as Care Credit and Advance Care, offering low monthly payments and interest free options for up to 14 months.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

Relief from PRP injections can last 2-5 years.

HOW IS THE PROCEDURE DONE? HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?

Dr. Ahmad uses the AngelⓇ System to produce the concentration of PRP substance needed for your pain management treatment. This machine uses 3-sensor technology (3ST) that can be configured to customize PRP substance concentrations.

The AngelⓇ System is a fully automated technology that has the capacity to deliver platelet concentrations with adjustable leukocyte concentration. These concentrated PRP substances are safe because we use the patient’s own blood while following the FDA minimal manipulation guidelines.

The procedure is performed as an outpatient treatment in our office.

HOW QUICKLY CAN I GET AN APPOINTMENT?

It’s a quick process. We simply need the patient’s information, insurance information, and the date and the time to book an appointment. Book your appointment today!
