Answer

These treatments include such procedures as platelet-rich plasma, amniotic fluid, and stem cell from bone marrow aspirate concentrate show promise in healing tears and tendinosis. These are all considered experimental and not covered by major insurance carriers. However, these treatments are likely to become more commonplace as patients look to restore tissue health without invasive surgical disruption. [34, 35, 36, 37]
