    I learned about Dr. Papas from a friend who had successful stem cell therapy 1 year ago for her torn meniscus. I only needed platlet therapy and I have improved dramatically in just 6 weeks. I am thrilled to have avoided surgery along with a probable knee replacement further down the line. I am walking well, attending physical therapy appointments and I expect that I will continue to improve in the coming months as I continue therapy,

    Dr. Papas and his team exceeded my expectations. I came in with neck, back and shoulder issues from a previous car accident. He and his team thoroughly addressed all issues and concerns. The PRP injections and post treatment plans have helped me get back back to my daily life. I would highly recommend Dr. Papas with Regenexx Tampa Bay to everyone.

    Both of my ankles were a mess from previous sprains and fractures. Here I was in my mid 30s thinking I was going to have issues with swelling and pain the rest of my life. Did NOT want surgeries. Dr. Papas spent more time with me than any other provider had in the past. He provided a clear description of my problem and and clear plan for the blood platelet treatment. The treatment worked exactly as expected. I followed the post-procedure instructions and physical therapy plan. My symptoms are gone and I have more stability in my ankles. It's like they were never injured. I would recommend to anyone Dr. Papas and Regenexx to anyone with joint issues.

    I had terrible pain in my left elbow for the last two years due to a fracture. I saw many Orthopedic specialists and had surgery, injections, and physical therapy, all with negative results. My pain was excruciating, causing me to lose the use of my arm and spend many sleepless nights. After treatment with Dr.Papas my pain is 100% gone and I am sleeping fantastic, walk 5-7 miles a day, losing weight and feeling energetic. This has changed my life!!

    I had been having increasing R/L knee pain, in addition to my right knee "locking up." I brought my dvd's with me; Dr. Papas also did his own ultrasound, which I very much appreciated. He explained everything as he did the ultrasound. Diagnosed the issues. Recommended Visco supplementation (Hymovis) in addition to PRP shots. Good outcome. Very pleased. I've had PRP shots in my spine in the past and I'm a fan!

I can do everything i want to, exercise, outdoor activities, yard work and with no pain. I recommend him and this process to anyone that will listen. Thank you for allowing me to get back to my life back.

    Came in with a torn labrum in my left shoulder, the pain was ridiculous. After deciding to try this before a normal surgery (i cant be put under without major health risks) I came in for my second appt. Followed EVERY instruction I was given to the letter from taking the supplements to eating the special diet I was put on.I had my procedure done 10/22/2020. Today was my 90day follow up. I'm in zero pain and the tear in my shoulder is healed. Only thing to show it was even damaged is a small scar on the labrum. It would've been foolish of me not to explore this option to avoid have a surgery that wouldn't have helped me as much. I've now been cleared to start playing billiards again, as well as auto racing. You owe it to yourself to explore this option BEFORE having any surgery, you won't be sorry!!! I can't thank Dr.Papas and his fantastic staff enough for helping me through this process. My wife and I truly appreciate you all!

    I am a 93-yo man who injured his shoulder doing yard work. I was in pain but because of Covid I put off going to see anyone. Eventually I made an appt with an ortho. We tried Cortisone and PT, which were not much help. I made an appt with Regenexx Tampa Bay. It was the best move I could have made. The receptionist, Karen and nurse, Ana, were both extremely nice. Dr. Papas is a nice young man who gave me a thorough exam that lasted over an hour, including x ray, ultrasound and diagnosis of a partially torn rotator cuff. I felt so reassured after consulting with him, with no rush he answered all of our questions. His recommendation was PRP (they draw blood, prep it in their lab, and reinject your shoulder. I had about 4 days of post procedure pain. During my course I was in contact with a very nice lady, Kim, my coordinator. Words cant describe how helpful she was. I am on the mend and getting back to normalcy. If you are contemplating surgery, talk to Regenexx first.

    Dr. Papas and Regenexx Tampa Bay have been a Godsend to my pain and suffering. Twice this year Dr. Papas helped me find freedom from pain. First with my knees (Bi-Lateral, both knees) in Feb. 2020 and Most recently, Bi-Lateral (both wrists) Carpal Tunnel Release, to which I have suffered for 23 years. Dr. Papas performed the procedure in the office, on Dec. 22nd, and I went home and my recovery was only 3 days, minimal pain on both wrists and I was able to sleep without pain for the first time in 23 years, all the pain in my arms, wrists, numbing fingers, shooting pains in my neck shoulders were all relieved immediately after the surgery. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Papas and his staff, I felt safe, secure, and welcomed. Thank you Dr. Papas for your diligence to find help for people suffering like me.

    Had an issue at the elbow where there had already been surgical intervention for a distal bicep tear. Dr.Papas did a proper diagnosis of the issue. He knew the name of every muscle in the arm by memory. I had been to multiple Orthopedic doctors & was not able to receive a proper diagnosis throughout even with MRIs & Xrays. I got PRP for what is known as Tennis Elbow. I was pain free two weeks post procedure, & would highly recommend Dr. Papas to anyone looking for non-surgical options or for a second opinion. Dr. Papas is one of the smartest doctors I have worked with, & you can tell he is in this field for the right reasons. He is great, Thank you Regenexx Tampa Bay & Dr. Papas you all have a patient for life! Highly Recommend!

    Upon arrival to the office, I was greeted with warmth and kindness which was so assuring as I was a bit on the cautious side! All procedures were explained and my questions were answered in terms that I could understand. When procedures were light and non-painful, that was explained. When procedures were going to require pain medication, they were explained as well. There were no surprises,

    As a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, I have seen plenty of knee replacements. My local orthopods told me I would know when my right knee needed replacement. I simply did NOT want a total knee until there was nothing else. So, two years later and Regennex, Dr. Pappas and staff, taking care of my knee, I have no pain, more mobility and am so glad to have gone the Regennex way!
