“After years of trying numerous remedies for a torn rotator cuff, I was pleased to finally find relief following PRP and stem cell treatment, followed by a repeat of the PRP procedure. My initial procedure was a little over a year ago. The improvement is amazing. Dr. Poovendran and his staff couldn’t be more professional and compassionate. I am so grateful. I would recommend this procedure to anyone who is seeking pain relief and repair of a rotator cuff – without having to undergo surgery.”

“I tore my MCL while surfing with my teenage son in Hawaii. Although I missed out on some really fun things the rest of that vacation, when I returned home, I found Dr. Poovendran and Meli Orthopedic. Kraig and the whole team took very good care of me. Every step of the process was explained to me and every question I had was answered. The procedure was completed in one office visit and the healing process started very quickly. Within days, I was experiencing additional mobility in my knee and within a few short weeks, I was walking without a limp. A few months later, I was able to squat, which is something I thought I would never be able to do again. It’s been a little over a year since the procedure, and I rarely give a second thought to my knee. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Poovendran and the team at Meli Orthopedic. I'm already planning my next trip to Hawaii, and I know where I am going to surf.”

“I injured my left shoulder years ago. It was causing increasing pain, so I saw an orthopedic surgeon. The MRI revealed a 90% tear of my rotator cuff. My original orthopedic surgeon scheduled me for surgery, but after researching what the surgery consisted of and the length of recovery, I searched for an alternative. It turns out stem cell therapy was an option, and I was referred to Dr. Poovendran. After the injections, I didn’t have to keep my shoulder immobilized or sleep in a recliner – or take much pain medication. I started physical therapy right way and slowly got better. It has been 10 months, and I went from hardly being able to lift a gallon of milk to doing lateral raises with 20-pound weights. I’m back to doing pull-ups, which has always been a part of my workout routine. Initially, I was skeptical about stem cell therapy, especially with a 90% tear, but it was the best decision I ever made. Thank you, Dr. Poovendran.”
