Dr. Genin is cautious, wanting my neck evaluated before his treatment. I have a spine doctor, at another facility, so this was a waste of time. Perplexed, as to why, Dr. Genin stated PRP does not accelerate healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. Wanted the PRP therapy, in conjunction with labrum surgery, aid healing. CC orthopedics does not relay the importance of natural therapy that accelerates healing, such as Vitamin C supplementation. A friend had knee replacement in NC, surgeon told her to take natural Vitamin C before and after surgery, helps rebuild tendons. Friend said, had the other knee replacement in Ohio, did not state anything that would aid recovery, except FT, or options the facility would make money from. It's all about money.
