Dr. Derrington saw me for my torn LCL. I received a couple injections of PRP from my orthopedic surgeon before seeing Dr. Derrington and I was expected to make a full recovery without surgery. Both of those injections were unsuccessful, and did not help one bit. Luckily I met Dr Derrington and through his expertise in PRP injections and proper physical rehabilitation I was able to make a full recovery in less than two months. I am now back doing jiujitsu and weight lifting like normal. I recommend him as a first point of contact because the sooner you get in to see him the better.

Semi large disc herniation l5-S1. I am a 38 year old active guy who enjoy golf, surfing and other outdoor activities. It was not until I spoke to Stephen I was suggested alternative methods for dealing with my injury. We spoke about anti inflammatory foods and supplements to lower inflammation. I believe a combination of proper dedicated training - both mobility and strength, lowered inflammation and the regenexx epidural shots which shrunk the herniation (4mm) sealed the deal for me.

Dr. Derrington was thorough, compassionate and informative. He explained my back problems using a computer program which enabled visualization of the spinal cord which made it easier for me to see and understand my back issues. I'm definitely looking forward to the next visit.

Dr. Derrington was terrific. He really listened to me explain the details of my symptoms and history. I felt like he understood what my problems are and sought to address them with a thorough exam and explanation of how my spine and related muscles and ligaments all work together. I felt comfortable asking questions and like he cared

I found Dr Derrington as I was searching for a way to avoid surgery for a nonunion fracture in my big toe. Combine his expertise & bedside manner with his staff plus the technology he uses, and you have a winning combination. Dr D performed a stem cell transfer and PRP in July, and 5 weeks post-procedure a high-res X-ray revealed the fracture was completely healed. I am beyond grateful to have avoided surgery and be able to get back to the activities I enjoy most. Thank you, Dr. D!

Dr. Derrington introduced me to stem cell therapy, a non-invasive, lower cost, natural alternative to surgery using my own stem cells and allows my body to heal my rotator cuff tears in my shoulder. Dr. Derrington and his staff in Oceanside, CA were warm, responsive, honest, and professional. I would highly recommend.

Dr. Derrington helped me overcome a lingering case of plantar faciitis. He is very approachable and has a very pleasant and straightforward communication style. He engages the patient holistically and looks at the patient's concern in a larger context. He is thoughtful in suggestions on lifestyle adjustments. He looks for the least complicated solution first. His recommendation of a platelet treatment to my heel worked marvelously and I was back jogging in a few weeks. I recommend him highly.
