After college, Dr. Darrow completed a Doctorate in Jurisprudence from Golden Gate University College of Law in San Francisco, as well as a Masters of Business Taxation from the University of Southern California (and actually practiced law for 15 years prior to his medical career).
After several sports injuries, Dr. Darrow was healed by self-injections of Prolotherapy (short for proliferation therapy”) which promotes rapid, and prolific, growth of cartilage, and collagen, the structural protein of the body. By rejuvenating injured or worn connective tissue, musculoskeletal pain can be reduced or eliminated.
After realizing the healing potential of the then little-known Prolotherapy, Dr. Darrow devoted his regenerative medicine practice to many thousands of patients suffering from debilitating pain. Dr. Darrow has becoming a leading expert and teacher of Stem Cell Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma, and Prolotherapy for treating conditions from head to foot, including advanced bone on bone osteoarthritis. He finds it unnecessary to refer patients for elective musculoskeletal surgery, and uses the by-line “Take the Surgery Out Of Pain” on his KRLA weekly radio shows.
As an adjunct to health, Dr. Darrow’s wife, Michelle Darrow, is a Nurse Practitioner, who teaches the Ideal Protein weight loss program. In addition, she performs cosmetic procedures with Botox and Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, and is certified in the Vampire Face Lift (a cosmetic procedure of injecting Platelets) that Kim Kardashian made famous.
