platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
stem cell therapy
With a goal of developing rheumatoid arthritis therapies with minimal side effects, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have genetically engineered cells that, when implanted in mice, will deliver a biologic drug in response to inflammation.
Stem cells are cells with the potential to develop into many different types of cells in the body. They serve as a repair system for the body.

Before I had the PRP with Dr. Schmidt, I was in a lot of pain. I could not walk, I couldn’t stand…And today, I’m fine. No pain whatsoever, I’m not limited, I can walk now and I am starting to walk on my treadmill…
PRP? Never heard of it, even though celebrity athletes have used it. I’m not much of a sports person, so I don’t keep up. When I heard about the complex growth and healing factors right in my own blood — and how concentrating them and using them to inject in my plantar fascia might resolve my years of pain and inability to reasonably walk farther than to and from my vehicle — I was all in. It seems that at NLMG, each success leads to another success. Got to go. Time for a walk and do some errands. Pain free, that is.
Things were so bad before I had the PRP that I couldn’t even change the sheets on my bed…I could not sweep the floor. There were just so many things that I could not do. After the PRP, I was able to do most anything in the world…
