Want to avoid the hospital during these uncertain times?
We are here to help. Dr Darr puts the safety of his patients first. Dr Darr performs the majority of his surgeries at AVALA, a premier surgical facility located in Covington, Louisiana. They do not admit COVID-19 patients, and they perform strict COVID testing. This means that even when choosing to have surgery during the virus, we are providing a safe alternative to the major hospital setting.
Still feel surgery is too risky?
If you still feel the risk of surgery is too great, you are not alone. Many people are choosing to postpone surgery during this crisis. In many cases, patients are in a great deal of pain and now have no end in sight. Orthobiologics may be the perfect solution. Orthobiologic medicine is a collection of minimally invasive, pain-relief procedures that can be an alternative to surgery. At Dr Darr’s office, we offer services ranging from PRP, which uses blood growth factors, to Combined Cell Therapy, which uses fat cells, bone marrow cells, and blood growth factors to help heal your joints naturally in an in-office setting. We also offer ARPwave therapy, a more aggressive approach to healing. ARP is electro-physical therapy aimed at correcting body mechanics and strengthening and stabilizing the muscles around your joints. ARP can be done alone or in conjunction with one of our other therapies to help enhance your recovery and performance.
Is this covered by insurance?
No, Orthobiologic medicine is not yet covered by insurance.However, surgery costs can sometimes equal the costs of these outpatient,holistic procedures. A consultation, however, would be covered by most major insurances. So, if you are in pain, what are you waiting for?
