Proud to be the Preferred Service Provider to:
In July 2012, while doing my usual 40 minute Nordic pole walk, I limped home the last 2 blocks. A subsequent MRI confirmed that I had torn my left medial meniscus. Despite several weeks of physiotherapy and more time, it did not heal and I remained unable to walk any appreciable distance.
At age 62, I was not prepared to give up so easily. As a registered nurse, I have attended as well as referred several people to Dr. Stoddard and SEMI. And everyone has always been extremely satisfied with the results. This time, Dr. Stoddard recommended a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell injection (PRP–SC procedure). I had this done in May of 2013. Since I had moved out of Toronto, my physiotherapist (Romano Sulit) gave me exercises to do at home. I continue to do those and likely will for the rest of my life – prevention being better than cure!
And in October of 2013, I was pleased to be able to hike up a 1.7 mile switchback trail on the Blue Ridge Parkway; in February of 2014, I walked all over New York City, and in April of this year, walked the beaches at Hilton Head. So now, a year after my PRP-SC procedure, I am looking forward to resuming my up-and-down golf game this summer.
Life is good. My very grateful thanks to Team SEMI.
