Fees and appointment information

Marc Darrow MD,JD To answer some of your questions:
Stem cell and PRP injections for musculoskeletal conditions are NOT FDA APPROVED. We do not treat disease. We do not offer stem cell IV treatments. There are no guarantees that these treatments will help you. Prior to our treatment, seek advice from your medical physician. There is controversy in the medical community about whether umbilical cord blood stem cells are alive or dead, and which type of stem cell may be appropriate. If you have questions please call our office at 310-231-7000

COST OF TREATMENT

At the Darrow Stem Cell Institute Institute we understand that treating chronic pain can be quite expensive. Many of our patients have come to us after years of failed treatments and even failed surgeries. We have tried to keep patient costs as modest as possible. Only you can decide what is fair when it comes to out-of-pocket costs for your health care.

While most insurance policies are not covering the costs for Stem cells, Platelet Rich Plasma or Prolotherapy, we do invite you to call or email our office to see what your insurance may or may not cover.
