Pro Football Legends & Premier Stem Cell Institute Provide Alumni Members A Possible Alternative To Surgery

/EIN News/ -- MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., June 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pro Football Legends and the Premier Stem Cell Institute announced today they have signed a multi-year agreement that may provide hundreds of NFL Alumni (NFLA) members with an alternative to joint replacement and other surgical procedures.

The agreement between Pro Football Legends, the commercial marketing arm of the NFL Alumni Association, and the Premier Stem Cell Institute will provide a free revolutionary stem cell treatment to as many as 60 players each year.

Adult stem cell therapy, or regenerative medicine, is part of a growing conservative treatment option for patients wishing to possibly avoid surgical intervention. A typical treatment involves harvesting bone marrow from the patient's iliac crest, placing it in a centrifuge to diversify the components of the marrow and optimize the stem cell function. The stem cells are then injected back into the area of injury to begin the natural healing process.

"The Premier Stem Cell Institute has already treated many former players and the reviews have been very positive," said Joe Pisarcik, President and CEO of NFLA. "We're pleased to provide our members with a potential alternative to joint replacements and other costly surgeries."

Kandace De Angelo-Stolz, Premier's President and CEO: "Premier Stem Cell Institute has provided distinctive, life- changing therapies to athletes and retired athletes for several years.  Our dedication, passion, and knowledge for our therapies has been the paradigm shift in medicine and this introduction to retired football players marks a significant partnership for comprehensive care."
