I had a bicycle accident in 2013 and the closest hospital they brought me to was a heart hospital. Dr. Darr drive there that evening to do surgery on my leg, which had a broken tibia and fibula. We were very impressed with him and put at ease when he offered to pray with us before going back for surgery. His bedside manner was awesome. I knew recovery was going to be rough but I was willing to do anything and everything. He couldn’t give me a direct answer as to whether I’d be able to run again it we were hopeful. This past month, I was able to complete my first half Ironman (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run) and experienced zero pain with my leg with the metal rod and screws. I wouldn’t be where I’m at today if he hadn’t come to do the surgery and I’m so grateful for him. Looking forward to training and completing more races. Thank you Dr. Darr!

I had the combined cell therapy for both my left and right knees. I had lots of pain in my knees prior to my procedure. I was having trouble bending down on my knees and trying to stand back up. After the stem cell procedure I am able to do many activities that I used to have pain with and can now do them pain free. The procedure was great and I recommend it to anyone that is having problems with their knees and is looking for another option besides surgery. I would also recommend Dr. Darr to do any procedure or surgery, he is a great doctor.

I had a right hip replacement. Everything was great. I was having a lot of pain in my hip and felt like I was torturing myself. After surgery I am not in pain anymore and I can do everything I couldn't do before. I can tie my shoes again and I am feeling much better. Dr. Darr, his staff, the therapists that helped me and everyone was great and helpful.

I originally came in to discuss combined stem cell regenerative therapy options for a torn meniscus in my right knee. I was looking for options besides a meniscectomy. My experience with Dr. Darr has been terrific. From the beginning he has been a patient and attentive doctor. This was something that was very important to me as a patient. He was realistic when going over the procedure and projected results. After preliminary examination and discussion, I went ahead and did both knees because it was cost efficient. His staff has been extremely kind and courteous. A year later, and I have no pain in my right knee, and am back to my previous exercise capabilities.
