Out of town



Are you considering having a Stem Cell treatment, but do not reside in North Carolina? Many of our patients fly national and internationally to meet our board-certified orthopedic & sports medicine physicians who are completely dedicated to Orthopedic Stem cell treatments.

As part of our out of town patient protocol, we offer complimentary limo transportation to and from Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) and assist you with hotel and travel arrangements to ensure it is a seamless process for you. If you do choose to have a comprehensive consultation, we will start with either a 10 min no charge “pre-consult to provide you with some general additional info or a paid phone consultation, which will include the review of your MRI (if available).

If you want to move forward you will then have two options:
1. you can either make a separate trip to Charlotte to be seen in-person at the Center,
2. you can have your in-person consultation and treatment in the same trip (usually on back to back days – consultation and pre-procedure appointments one day, a treatment the next day, fly home following day).

This is completely up to you, what you are comfortable with and what your schedule allows. We will work with you to customize and individualize logistics just like we customize and individualize your Stem Cell treatment. Call us for more information about coming in from out-of-town: (980) 859-2340

I’ve always had a fantasy to get off a plane and be greeted by a limo driver holding a card with my name on it. Now, thanks to iOBX I can scratch that one off my bucket list! When I recently flew from Maine to Charlotte for a consultation with iOBX about stem cells for my torn rotator cuff, they provided the airport car service (to and from) the way most practices throw in a bottle of water! Also, staff recommended nearby hotels, making travel logistics a snap.

But travel logistics was just the beginning, as I continue to find myself profoundly appreciative and awed by the grace, sensitivity and kindness which has characterized every single interaction with the iOBX organization to date.

This Center distinguishes itself with cutting-edge science and a meticulous approach to stem cell procedures, coupled with an attentive, compassionate and professional staff. When they told me in advance they like to treat their patients as family, they weren’t exaggerating. And I guess I’m so impressed because while this is a nice idea, it’s an all-too-rare reality these days.

Schedule a brief 10-minute phone call with one of our physicians.
This can be done either immediately, or after we receive your information and our physicians have reviewed it completely free of charge. When in comprehensive evaluation you will receive details of the diagnosis, treatment options, and recommendations.
Schedule a comprehensive evaluation.
$250 for one joint and approximately 60-90 minutes in duration. A comprehensive evaluation will include looking over all medical records, a physical exam, an ultrasound exam, bio-restorative education, and customized treatment recommendations. There is ample time for our physicians to explain what Stem Cells are, how they work, the details of our advanced treatments and answer all the questions that you have. For out of town patients, we offer an initial consultation over the phone, and then a secondary in-person comprehensive evaluation at your convenience. There is no additional charge for these multiple appointments. Once you have paid for your comprehensive evaluation, the only thing you pay for after that is services (diagnostic procedures, Stem Cell procedures, MRI, bracing etc.). Should you decide to move forward with a Stem Cell treatment, your $250 comprehensive evaluation fee is also applied in full to your treatment.

I had a complete tear of my ACL and was "too" old for surgery and not athletic enough. Dr. Tucker gave me the full treatment in March of 2017, I was without crutches or brace in 6 weeks and ran a 5K in 2018. Very professional and willing to answer all and every question. Had an MRI recently which showed healing and complete restoration to my complete ACL tear!

Not wanting to have replacement surgery on the knee that had troubled me for years, iOrthoBIOLOGIX was recommended by my PCP Dr. Kanelos. Upon arrival I knew I was in the right place. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and supportive. Dr. Tucker dispelled any worries I had about stem cell procedures, listening carefully to my input and following up with relevant questions. He was willing to spend the time necessary to help me understand the condition of my knee, the procedures that would be applied, what to expect following treatment and what I should do in the weeks to follow. I was particularly impressed with the level of follow up care provided and thankful to have transitioned from having near constant pain in my left knee, to being able to walk and exercise daily. As a 73-year old man who sees more doctors more often than I care to, iOrthoBIOLOGIX is among the BEST I've ever seen!

I had been through Physical Therapy with 2 different practitioners prior to my Stem Cell treatment. I also saw an Orthopedic Surgeon that gave me a cortisone shot which lasted a few weeks. His recommendation was to continue cortisone shots, frequently, until I eventually needed a knee replacement surgery. My knee was swollen and I was in a lot of pain. Stairs were difficult and standing for any period of time was hard too. Exercising was impossible. The increase in my pain levels made even riding a bike unbearable. I had exercised all my life and I was in good shape, but my knee was stopping me from being able to do the most basic exercises and again standing was something I could do for only short periods of time. I found iOrthoBIOLOGIX through a local physical therapist that had seen success with his patients. I live in Wisconsin but chose to make the trip to Charlotte. I found Dr. Tucker and his staff to be very patient with me and answered all of my questions prior to the treatment as my case was more complex do to me having Rheumatoid Arthritis. I chose to do the Stem Elite Restore procedure followed by a STEMish booster for both my knee and thumb. Throughout the treatment, I could not have been in better hands. They kept me informed of what was going on and how to proceed afterwards. During the treatment, everyone was encouraging and informative as to what was going on. Honestly, Dr. Tucker is the best experience I have ever had with a medical doctor. He truly cares about his patients and spent a lot of time with me making sure the right treatment was selected for my case. I am now able to exercise for 30-40 minutes. I can walk for long periods of time, standing does not bother me and I do not have pain in my knee. I'm also pleased with the results of my thumb treatment as well. I feel like I have been given my life back. iOBX stays on the cutting edge of Stem Cell treatment technology and cares about their patients – I could not ask for better. Paula

I want to thank Dr. Tucker and all the professional and friendly staff at iOBX for giving me my life back with their advanced Stem Cell treatments. The whole experience was positive from start to finish. It was wonderful to be greeted by my first name when I walked into the Center; the staff are so warm and personable, and I never had to wait. I appreciate the time Dr. Tucker and Dr. Zeckser spent with me to listen, assess and understand my problems and decide on the optimal treatments. That is so refreshing!I have been suffering from back and hip pain for the past several years and despite many different treatment modalities, short of surgery, the pain only worsened and slowly shrank my world. I was a very active woman who enjoyed a variety of physical activities, but over time I could not tolerate any of them without severe back and hip pain followed by lingering pain for days afterward. I could not sit still for a conversation, a meeting, a car ride, or a flight. My world shrank more. The final impairment that motivated me to explore stem cell treatment was when I could no longer tolerate a leisurely walk with my child. My world was closed. I had my Premium STEM Restore treatment into multiple disks in my low back and into my left hip about 5 months ago, and had a follow up “Stemish” fertilizer treatment 2-3 months ago. After both treatments and recovery period, followed by physical therapy I felt a substantial improvement in my back and great improvement in the hip. I no longer have pain in my back with normal activity, I can finally sit still and enjoy the moment, and I can enjoy a walk again. There is still occasional discomfort (2 discs haven’t been treated yet and hopefully won’t need to be) that I can manage very well with the tools I learned in physical therapy, but significantly less than before treatment and I can tolerate most daily activities without pain. I have a life again!Thank you all!Sincerely,Packy Spahi

I had my fully torn ACL repaired thanks to iOrthoBIOLOGIX. The staff there was kind, honest, and very helpful and available throughout the entire process! I have torn my ACLs on both knees. I have had both stem cell treatment (on my fully torn right ACL) and traditional ACL surgery (on my fully torn left ACL). Stem cell treatment was by far the better option. My recovery has been much more painless with my knee that had stem cell "surgery" and my recovery has been a good, smooth process. I would recommend iOrthoBIOLOGIX over a traditional surgery route to anyone trying to fix a torn ACL!!

“Being a NFL running back for a decade took a toll on my body. Going on 2 and a half years ago I underwent Stem Cell treatment with iOBX for both knees and I couldn’t be more happy with the results. I had cartilage loss, torn meniscus, loose ligaments, swelling and 10/10 pain especially in my left knee. Now I have virtually no problems with either knee and couldn’t be more pleased. Additionally, about 9 months ago I came back to iOBX for a lingering hip issue limiting me from walking without pain much less working out or playing golf. My hip was treated many times by elite level institutions with no benefit. After undergoing Stem Cell treatment with iOBX I now have no issues with the hip, the results have been magical. I’m grateful for what Dr. Tucker and the excellent Staff at iOBX have done for me.”

I had arthritis and pain in both my knees which gave me fear of instability and a difficult time walking, especially with stairs. The pain minimized activity with my wife and my dog, especially on the beach. I decided to choose iOBX over surgery because I wanted to avoid a knee replacement and the risks and unpredictability of that. At iOBX I found a very professional, cordial, no pressure environment. I had an Elite Restore treatment of the Bilateral knees using my own bone marrow and fat Stem Cells. I also had a bone bruising treatment and joint flushing of the nasty chemicals within my knee. The procedure went like clockwork and was not as bad as I anticipated. I’m now about 9 months out from treatment and have significantly less pain, more stability, and able to go on long walks and hikes, which I wasn’t able to do prior to treatment. I have much fewer “bad days”. I would absolutely and without hesitation, recommend iOBX to family and friends.
