Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy

Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy

I’ve been getting quite a few private messages about stem cell therapy and I have been offering this option to my patients for a few years. Here’s my opinion on it:

1. It’s EXPENSIVE. I’m not sure of the exact price but the rep can give you details and payment plans options.

2. Your insurance will ONLY cover me performing the injection.

3. This therapy MAY decrease the pain from arthritis for one to two years.

4. It will NOT grow new cartilage, don’t get fooled into thinking otherwise.

5. My patients who have chosen this therapy did have good results but I do not have a huge population who can fork over several thousand dollars for an injection.

6. This therapy works better in younger, active people with mild to moderate arthritis.

7. There is NO guarantee you will have less pain with this option.

A consultation and exam will determine if you are a candidate for this therapy.

Don’t wait! My staff can usually work a patient into my schedule within 48 hours!!!

Need a Second Opinion?

Summer is just around the corner, wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy the sunshine without joint pain? After a consultation and exam, I’ll make a customized treatment plan starting with non-surgical options. If you’ve been told you need surgery come see me for a second opinion!

Thank you Tulsa!!!

I am humbled and honored to have won Best of the Best six years in row with Oklahoma Magazine. I can work my magic in the OR but it also takes my clinic staff, OR staff, nursing staff and physical therapists who also help my patients get outstanding results!

Thank you Sherry for allowing me to treat you and your family!

Sherry T. I have had both knees replaced by the age of 50 by Dr LaButti which I am very thankful for so when my husband had issues I sent him there. Dr LaButti could have said surgery is needed but he did not, he said unless he was worried about how his arm looked or unless he was a professional sports person he did not need surgery. My husband was all ready for surgery but was so relieved when it was not needed…. So my story is I trust Dr LaButti to do what’s best for us.

What is “Transitional Surgical Therapy”?

My office has been flooded with patients who have had “Transitional Surgical Therapy” and it’s time I share with you what it is.

As you know I am very conservative when recommending surgery. I will only offer it when I believe the patient will IMPROVE their quality of life with little or no pain. On a frequent basis, I see patients who have been told they need surgery without having symptoms that would warrant surgery, or have had a joint preserving surgery, such as arthroscopy, that failed to relieve their pain.

~ A patient has knee pain from relatively advanced arthritis and cartilages tears. They are offered an arthrsocopy for a “wash out”. The pain relief is short lived and, within a few months of the first surgery, the patient is then offered a partial joint replacement. After the second surgery, the pain relief is incomplete and worsens over several more months. The patient is then told they need a third surgery to convert the partial joint replacement to a total knee replacement.


It is better for the patient to have ONE, definitive surgery that gives RELIABLE, more complete pain relief, such as knee replacement, and have years of pain free living.

Rest assure if I recommend surgery it’s because I truly feel I will be able to improve the quality of your life. If you’ve been told you need surgery and want a second opinion I would be happy to see you.
