Healed my grade 2 LCL tear completely, after two unsuccessful PRP injections from a different provider. Completely back to normal with jiujitsu, surfing, and weight lifting.

Very good initial exam and diagnosis. The PRP injections were painful. I've had health problems since, maybe coincidentally, but still not diagnosed.

Dr. Derrington listened well, understood & diagnosed with the right modalities- with a diagnostic ultra sound. Then, to confirm his findings, he recommended an MRI. Dr. Derrington then did the PRP procedure with the diagnostic ultrasound to guide him. Truly knowledgeable professional in sports medicine therapies! (Gentle & kind too). Wrist healed strong & well with a lot of physical therapy to help it along. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR DERRINGTON

Dr. Derrington did more to put an end to my several years of suffering than the more than ten Kaiser neurologist, orthopedics and neurosurgeons had done for me. He listened. He used the MRI’s and X-rays that I provided to target the problem areas and put me on the road to a normal pain free life.

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.
