PRP is likely a positive and better than nothing for OA but EARLY stem cell results are IMO much more promising, do a search and it's apparent.

My wife had stem cell treatment today and she has stage III OA, she is an excellent candidate for stem cell/PRP, we'll see how she does - I'm very positive about here outcome.
