Tommi C. – Jul 02, 2021
I have arthritis in my SI joints which caused pain down my right leg at night. I was awake every two hours. Back surgery was not for me. I searched the internet for regenerative medicine and found Dr. Lehman. Dr. Lehman is an expert in regenerative medicine. She's compassionate and always available to answer my concerns. Dr. Lehman did PRP injections on my left side first and a month later the right side. It's been three months and the pain is only a slight ache. I'm convinced I will be pain free very soon. Highly recommend Dr. Lehman.

Had 3 rotator cuff tears which Dr. Lehman treated with plasma and stem cell injections. 4 months later no pain and full range of motion! Much better option than surgery! Highly recommend Dr. Lehman and her expertise.

Several months ago I started having pain in my hips, to find out later, I have acute bursitis and a tare on my tendon. After trying cortisone and other shots to relieve the pain, I spoke with Dr. Lehman about my problem and we decided to try platelet gel. It has been 3 weeks since my platelet gel injection in my left hip and it has really helped! I recommend platelet gel to treat joint pain, bursitis, and many other sore spots you may have. Thank you so much Dr. Lehman for your time and help.

Mark E. – Nov 28, 2020
how thrilled I am with how the stem cell/platelets treatment you provided has restored my shoulder rotator cuff tear to 85% or better of former use!  I recently chain sawed and stacked about 20 logs for firewood, happily dig in the garden, lift heavy objects, and can even sleep on that shoulder.

Mack M. – Sep 27, 2020
Dr. Lehman injected PRP in both thumbs and below my right knee.. An effective nerve block allowed the second procedure to be easier. The PRP results are subtle. I measure Dr. Leyman's success by my diminished pain at all three sites... and I'm grateful for her expertise as an alternate to surgery.

Ginny Lentz – Sep 11, 2020
I had been experiencing severe pain in both of my hips for several years and met with an orthopedic surgeon. He recommended that I have hip replacements. I then met with Dr Lehman to determine what my non-surgical options were with regenerative medicine. She patiently answered all of my questions, explained the procedure for stem cell and PRP and gave me a detailed information packet so that I would know what to expect during the procedure and recovery. After considering all of my options, I scheduled the Stem Cell and PRP procedures. I am happy to say that after 4 weeks I am experiencing positive results from my procedures. Dr Lehman’s staff was friendly and made me feel at ease during my entire experience. My only regret is that I didn’t have the stem cell sooner.

Dr Lehman is an outstanding physician with an equally exceptional care of her patients. I had stem cells in my right knee and was able to successfully hike the Camino in Spain 6 weeks later. It's been 2 years and I am still doing wonderfully! I highly recommend Dr Lehman and this treatment opportunity.

Very caring physician. Will talk to you like you are a person not a patient and explains everything from diagnosis to procedure on a level that can be understood. She did my PRP injection in my hip. No pain -- thank goodness because I don't like pain at all.

Carol Buckner in Canton, NC – Sep 27, 2018
Dr Lehman convinced me to try PRP for hip pain, and although I was skeptical, it seemed better to try a healing procedure rather than injecting a cortisone band-aid which would simply mask my pain. I'm about 7 weeks out, and the results have been nothing short of miraculous. Recovery takes less time than anticipated--and my pain has diminished from a 7/10 to never more than a 2, and often days are totally pain-free. I am enormously grateful to her. Lehman is direct, honest and compassionate.
