out of 5

I have been getting 3 shots about 6 months apart 3 times so far with great results. The time it takes is about 4 weeks to be painfree and then i'm able to play doubles tennis on clay. No pain at all during or after shot. After 5 more months the knee pain returns. So far so good with the shots. I've been active all my life til tennis injury to ACL, miniscus and bone in 2006. ACL replaced(used tendon), miniscus cleanup, PT, all lead to shots as too young for new knee, mid -40s now, avg. weight. Hoping this process lasts for years and the price comes down, about $1500 in NYC for 3 shots over 3 weeks--at least i can walk, do stairs, elliptical is great, and keep up w/kids.
