Had an old ACL injury and little meniscus left. Dr Blecher thought a PRP/stem cell/PRP treatment would help as an alternative to knee replacement, so was excited to explore this option. The experience has been great with staff, Dr Blecher & the procedures!

Dr, Blecher has helped me with my knees after all the running I did in my early years. He takes the conservative approach, which I like. I am extremely happy and have avoided having knee replacement.
