PRP/Stem Cell Therapy Procedure
How to Prepare for the PRP/Stem-Cell Therapy Procedure:
- Seven days before your injection, do not take any anti-inflammatory medicine. Do not take medicines like Aspirin, Motrin, Advil, Aleve or Naprosyn.
- Tell your doctor if you are on any blood thinning medications prior to procedure.
- 1-2 days before the procedure, drink 64 ounces of water per day. The day of your injection, drink as much water as you can - preferably, 64 ounces of water.
To assure your safety, you MUST have a driver bring you to and from your appointment on the day of your scheduled treatment.
Conscious Sedation for Stem Cell Treatments
For the stem cell treatment, Dr. Wagner will handwrite a prescription for you to fill at your pharmacy. Your prescription will consist of two medications, a light sedative/muscle relaxant, as well as a pain reliever for discomfort. You will find one pill for each medication. Directions for medication use are as follows:
Take both tablets at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled procedure. This is important for optimal effectiveness of the medications.
If you have concerns about side effects or potential interactions these medications may have with other medications you are currently taking, please contact Dr. Wagner or one of his nursing staff right away to discuss.
