My doctor said an x-ray was good enough…..typically this is not the case. At Centeno Schultz we treat the entire functional unit, meaning not only the bones but also the tendons and ligaments. Therefore, we use additional imaging like MRI and ultrasound to ensure our patients get the most precise and complete treatments.

New Patients

  New Patient Evaluation (NPE)

The doctors at the Centeno Schultz Clinic perform a SANS evaluation of every patient. A SANS evaluation looks at you as a whole person, examining your stability, symmetry, how nerves may contribute to pain, and your joints and articulation. Many orthopedic conditions are interconnected. Unlike other orthopedic specialists that often see 6+ patients an hour, our comprehensive 60 minute SANS evaluation can identifiy the interconnected issues, get to the real cause of your pain and help you find relief!
img
Based on 15 years of experience and extensive patient registry data, the doctors at Centeno Schultz provide every patient with a candidate rating of good, fair or poor. Other regenerative medicine clnics dont have the experiece or data to do this. Our higest priority is determining if this is right for YOU, our patient.
img
While Regenexx Clinics are established throughout the nation, many individuals still travel to seek the inventors of these treatments. At Centeno-Schultz, we offer a telephone review to go over images you have, go over your medical history, and review your symptoms and function of that area. For those traveling from a distance, this is a great way to find out if our treatment is a good fit for you and YOUR condition.
img
This is on a case-by-case basis and although we have before, it would be at the advice of the doctor to treat more than one area. One of the many things that set Regenexx procedures apart from all other stem cell therapy being offered is dosage; to ensure the best possible outcome the doctor takes many factors into consideration, including your stem cell count.

One of the major benefits of telemedicine evaluations is that you have a chance to work with the world’s leading Interventional Orthobiologics doctors from anywhere in the world from the comfort of your own home.

 

Telemedicine evaluations have eligibility to be submitted to insurance. If you are working with a carrier, and want to see if you have eligibility, please send over you’re a copy of the front and back of your insurance card; we will verify for you. Please provide Date of Birth.

If you happen to have an insurance that doesn’t have eligibility, the Telemedicine Evaluation fees are:

$200 – Dr. John Pitts; Dr. Jason Markle; Dr. Matthew Hyzy

$275 – Dr. Christopher J. Centeno; Dr. John Schultz

  Procedure

Centeno Schultz clinic focuses on providing the right, least invasive and most cost-effective procedure to help you find relief. More often than not, a platelet-based procedure could help you.

Because of the wide range of conditions we treat here at Centeno-Schultz Clinic, it is hard to speak to what recovery looks like in sum total. However, we often characterize recovery with this description: “activity-tolerated.” Dr. Centeno explains:

The Centeno Schultz clinic has treated more patients with stem cells and PRP than any other clinic in the world. You can find patient stories on our Website, in our blog and in our Facebook group. You can also ask at the clinic for a list of patients with similar conditions to you.
