I had a very severe case of right knee osteoarthritis from an old jogging injury. I had my first Stem Cell treatment in December 2019 and my “stemish” treatment in February. I had 6 week+ physical therapy after 2nd treatment. It has been a slow recovery, but I am so glad I went this route instead of knee replacement. I had minimal meniscus to replenish so it would naturally take longer. I still have some stiffness in the morning and when I sit to long, but I am back out walking my dog (2+ miles) a day. Would only have Dr Tucker perform. His staff is wonderful.

In November 2016, I tore my right rotator cuff playing basketball. My occupation is a Tennis Pro at Tim's Tennis USA. When I went in for a consultation with my Veterans Administration surgeon, I was told that after conventional surgery I may need to change my career. I had heard of IOBX from a friend, and decided to explore this option. Stem Cell Replacement made so much more sense, although I didn't receive any promises that it would put me back on the court with full use of my arm. However, after having the procedure done in March 2017, I was back at work with full use of my arm in 6 months. I have not had any problems with my shoulder since that time. In addition to coaching, I also play competitively several times a week.I was very impressed with the professionalism of the... staff from the first time my wife and I walked into the facility. Dr. Tucker was very thorough in his explanation of what would take place on the day of the procedure. The staff helped me get my physical therapy set up, and the P.T. was also a huge contributing factor in the success of my procedure.Being a Navy Vet, I would have been able to have the conventional surgery with no out of pocket cost. However, when we considered switching careers at age 60, versus laying the $s down for stem cell replacement, it really was a no-brainer for us. My wife and I are huge advocates for healthy living, and what better way to get back on the courts than to let my body heal itself?!?read more

I was diagnosed as having no cartilage in my right ankle, and some loss in both Knees.In addition I had soreness in my shoulders.Played many sports all my life, fortunately never injured any joint, pain is a result of age (75) and arthritis.I am not a fan of joint replacement. I know several people who have had both knees replaced, and while most agree there is substantially less pain, they have limitations on their range of motion.Ankle replacements are currently not as advanced and were not recommended.Having heard about stem cell therapy, i did research on line and found Dr Tucker and IOBX. Scheduled the initial exam, and was very pleased with how I was treated, the thoroughness of Dr Tucker and the examination.Dr Tucker and his staff were completely open and honest about what... they could do and what issues might be in need of more extensive treatment.I opted to have stem cells injected into my ankle.The day of the treatment we were in by 8:30 and on the way home at 3:30. We were given lunch, and my wife treated to a massage while I was having my cells harvested and injected..After 3 months I had no pain in my ankle under any normal conditions.When I walk, or stand for long period, or play golf I still experience some soreness, which subsides after brief rest (.I do not take any kind of pain medication).As an unanticipated result, my shoulders and knees are not quite as sore as before the treatment.Dr.Tucker's staff, particularly Brittany and Ellissa, have regular calls with me to follow up on my progress after the procedure.I am very satisfied with the result, and definitely glad I went to IOBX for treatment.Ed Friedhoffread more
