The Cost of Orthopedic Stem Cell Therapy

The cost of cell therapy is something patients ask about all the time and understandably so. We constantly make decisions everyday based on what it costs and we measure this against what we really value. Cost and value play this constant game of tug of war in our conscious and even subconscious to create either our perception of customer satisfaction if we purchase the item, or anxiety if we really want it, but can’t afford it. If you consider this internal process, it is amazing that we remain sane with all the ads and enticements we are presented every single day. Our job here is to help you sort out these conflicting feelings and make an educated decision on the best value for your health care. At Cellular Healing we understand that you are looking for a value in health care and we work very hard to provide the best product with the best results in a customer friendly environment.

There were able to contact over 273 of these clinics over the phone and pose as a 57 yo man with knee arthritis. When they asked about the clinics success rates and costs, the answers tended to vary showing that there is little consensus in this field on the costs and results. Furthermore, the cost of the procedure had no correlation to the outcomes reported. So, you did not get what you paid for.
