In 2019 as a UPS package driver I was given a choice quit working and find another job, or seek treatment that would work. My job requires me to lift up to 150 lbs packages , 70 lbs with out help. In June of 2019 I had PRP injections in my Lumbar spine. I went back to work in time for the last Christmas rush, since Covid 19 hit its been six months of 14 hour days. My job is far from easy, and there are no weekends in which some muscle, or joint does not hurt. So far, by following the after care physical therapy procedures that Dr. Derrington provided, I have avoided major pain. So far his PRP spinal treatments have worked on my degenerative condition. Tip, ask for your after care instructions a few days ahead of the procedures so you can have everything ready, and don't fly the day of your procedure. I flew in for a lumbar procedure, and when my flight was canceled, the pain hit hard. Rest after your procedure. Get a hotell to recover. Fly the second or third day to be ok.

I am extremely impressed by the care I received from Dr. Derrington and his staff for treatment of calcific tendonitis in my shoulder, for providing more current, less invasive procedures that worked great. After just a few weeks I am pain-free and back to complete normal activities, doing better than I have been for several years. Here’s the back story: I had been having pain, limited mobility and weakness in my left arm due to calcific tendonitis for several years. I first went to an orthopedic doctor who gave me a steroid shot and recommended traditional surgery with 6 month or more recovery time. That’s when I sought out alternative less invasive treatments and found Dr. Derrington. He suggested a procedure called lavage, along with PRP which was much less invasive than surgery. He basically sucked out the calcium with a needle and injected PRP to assist with healing. I was able to watch the whole procedure in real time on sonogram, and he even showed me the calcium he extracted

I had stem cell and PRP treatment on my knee in June 2019 and a booster PRP in September 2019. I have been skiing every day for the last 30 days and my knee keeps getting stronger with each turn. Last year it would swell up and it was painful, I did not think I would be skiing this season. I am celebrating my 70th year of skiing. Thanks Dr. Derrington

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.
