FAQs

How do I make an appointment with Dr. Rosenberg?
Call 614-344-8136 and Lynn Russell will contact you within a day to schedule your appointment. Currently Dr. Rosenberg is available for clinical appointments on Thursdays, and in the near future on Tuesdays. Phone consultations can be arranged for other times.

Regenerative medicine procedures are currently not covered by insurance or Medicare. The injections or procedures are therefore scheduled with payment due by credit card at the time of service. Insurance does cover the office visit itself. We will provide a super bill with CPT codes for you to submit to your insurance for request for payment. In addition, out-of-network appointments can be scheduled at a rate of $225 per thirty minutes.

Pricing for Injections:

One area of the body Each additional area
Prolotherapy (Dextrose) $295 $295
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) $800 $700
Stem Cell $1,950 $1,850
Ultrasound Guided Needle $50 $50
Your initial orthopedic examination is billed to your insurance company. Your injection procedure is typically not covered by insurance. Credit card payment is required prior to the injection. We will provide you a copy of your office note and super-bill for your records. You are responsible for your first visit co-pay. However, your Prolotherapy treatments are not covered by Insurance. We will assist you in pursuing reimbursement from your insurance company by providing you a copy of your medical records when you submit your paperwork. We prefer payment at the time of service and we do accept personal checks as well as all major credit cards.

That depends upon the individual. But usually somewhere between 3 and 5 injections are required.
Yes they do. But only for a few minutes. I use a combination of 50% dextrose solution and 2% lidocaine. Once the lidocaine takes affect the patient should be pain free for about 1 to 2 hours. Then a lesser pain will return for up to a day then gradually disappear.
Yes, there is no problem being able to drive a car after you receive treatment.
The only side effects that we have recorded were a transient rash and transient local numbness.
We can still do the injections with just the 50% dextrose. We can numb the skin with a freezing solution of acetone.
You can take Tylenol. If that doesn’t work we will provide you with a small amount of narcotic pain medication.
In the hands of an experienced practitioner it is very safe. The needles are not placed near any vital structures of the body.

Injuries that cannot be treated with Prolotherapy include: Herniated Disks, Spinal Stenosis, Carpel & Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, Morten’s Neuroma, or Fibromyalgia (Nerve Entrapment Syndrome). In addition, Prolotherapy will not work for most torn meniscus that are not on the periphery.

However, because we are a full service orthopedic practice, we do treat everything noted here – as well as many other conditions – with a variety of other modalities.

In addition, we are happy to provide second opinions. Further, if we are not able to help you, we will refer you to the most appropriate physician to treat your condition.

Prolotherapy was slow to catch on in the medical profession because the use of dextrose (sugar) has always been associated with a placebo. In this case it is the active ingredient. Physicians on the west coast first rediscovered this treatment and it is growing in popularity nationwide. We are proud and confident to be bringing it to the New England area.
If possible we do encourage our patients to bring someone with them for the initial consultation so that all questions get asked, answered, and remembered as well as possible. Having someone with you for your initial consultation is a good idea for all of our patients.
