How I Skipped a Hip Surgery with Stem Cell & Prolotherapy


If you’ve been following me for very long at all, you already know I am hell-bent on fixing things without surgery, medications, or drugs.

It all started at age two when my cancerous kidney was removed. I learned early on I needed to keep my body clean in order to survive and thrive.

Flash-forward to my second year in college when the coach wanted me to have a knee operation because of a knee sprain. I was also pressured to use steroids to extend my football career as I was playing semi-pro football and trying out for the Chicago Bears in 1989. To now dealing with my 51 year-young beat up body, attempting to role model the fountain of youth for my  clients.

Through all of this I have remained drug- and surgery-free.

This experience is why Dr. Joe Mercola–the #1 natural online doc in the world–hired me to train him, his mother and father, brother and sister, two girlfriends (not at the same time!), his CEO, and his entire management and sales staff twice per week for 3 years.

In addition to my knee I also injured my hip back during my collegiate and semi-pro football career, 30-some years ago. While I’ve been able to minimize the pain all these years, it has been a continual, nagging injury. I decided to finally go under the knife and have a full hip replacement surgery…

Here is an X-ray taken by an Orthopedic Surgeon. He explained the scan for about 30 seconds and said you absolutely need a full hip replacement surgery. And it was URGENT.  So I scheduled a full hip replacement surgery.

But then a local businessman and acquaintance died because of complications from his knee surgery. He was healthy as a horse (besides his knee) and simply wanted to run marathons again…

Unfortunately, something went wrong with his surgery. He passed away on the operating table, leaving behind a wife, two kids, and a business with a lot of dependent employees.

Upon hearing this tragic news I decided to skip the surgery that I had scheduled last June and get more aggressive with my Holistic Health Hacks.

I committed to an aggressive approach: Stem Cell Therapy.

Here are pictures from my experience undergoing treatment at Dr. Ross & Marion Hauser’s facility in Chicago:

Dr. Ross & Marion Hauser MD are pioneers. Dr. Hauser has an altruistic heart. He’s also one of the best natural healers in the world.
Dr. Hauser has 2 clinics – 715 Lake St. Oak Park, Ill. ( 20 min southwest of Chicago ) & 9738 Commerce Center Ct., Fort Myers Fl.


Everyone at the clinic–from Rob at the front desk–to Evan, my assistant–to Danielle Steilen, the P.A. who was in charge of my session–to Dr. Ross Hauser, who created this and other natural healing clinics over 28 years ago–treated me amazingly well.

Dr. Hauser fought the FDA and won the right to continue his miraculous therapies. He and his wife Marion are true health warriors.

And a special thanks to Rachel Vera, who quarterbacks Dr. Hauser’s ships.


A procedure that allows our body to heal quickly without traditional medications or surgeries.

It totally amazed me that the crux of this procedure is my own blood is what is allowing my body to grow back new cartilage. The body heals itself.

Blood is the River of Life. Everything we need to live long and strong can be found in our blood.

Using this amazing procedure improved my hip noticeably more in one day than the 40 therapies I have used or invented over the last 10 years.

In the past I thought stem cell was out of range for me, that it was only for movie stars and the super-rich.

I was wrong! Procedures are quite affordable.

And what I found out, after I  happily paid for my procedure out of my own pocket, was that Dr. Hauser’s office will help you with your insurance company. Many times more than 50% is covered through some insurance carriers. That was super exciting news that I did not expect.

Thank you for coming along with me on my experience with Prolotherapy &  Stem Cell Therapy. I believe it is the closest thing to the Fountain of Youth.

A Similar Case

Within the last year, Life Coach and my #1 Mindset Reset and CEO Whisperer mentor, Tony Robbins, went in for what seemed to be only a rotator cuff issue. He was blindsided with a prognosis of Spinal Stenosis.

Spinal Stenosis is a condition, mostly in adults 50 and older, in which your spinal canal starts to narrow. This can cause pain and other problems.

Your spine is made up of a series of connected bones–vertebrae–and shock-absorbing discs. It protects your spinal cord, a key part of the central nervous system that connects the brain to the body. The cord rests in the canal formed by your vertebrae.

For most people, the stenosis results from changes because of arthritis. The spinal canal may narrow. The open spaces between the vertebrae may start to get smaller. The tightness can pinch the spinal cord or the nerves around it, causing pain, tingling, or numbness in your legs, arms, and torso.

There’s no cure, but there are a variety of nonsurgical treatments and exercises to keep the pain at bay. Many people with spinal stenosis can live normal lives.

We all know that Tony Robbins is on the opposite end of the frigging Universe from living a normal life!

In fact, the first medical doctor who diagnosed Tony told him he could no longer perform the marathon-like seminars that are the cornerstone of Tony’s career and his fulfillment in life.

Did Tony take this news lying down? Of course not! That’s not what victors do.

Instead, he sought out additional opinions (always a good call!) and connected with a doctor doing cutting-edge treatment in Melbourne, Australia. This doctor’s treatment involved spending 100 hours in a hyperbaric chamber. Doing this forced Tony’s body to release stem cells–with no needles–into precisely the right areas to improve his situation.

He says his body feels incredible today.

Again, it amazes me how the human body is able to heal itself!


One of my main objectives through this stem cell  experience is to interview Dr. Hauser and Tony Robbins to navigate and time collapse a personalized plan for myself.  I have a goal of sprinting again at 10.5 mph on a treadmill (it has been 6 years since the last time I did this).  And by doing so I will be a better thought leader for longevity; which is my driving force..  it’s what I was born to do..

I am really pumped because I already feel the healing taking place.

Another reason I wrote this post is to share this information with people who may have similar ailments. Life-altering, often risky surgery is not the only answer! It should be thought of as a last resort, not the first option.

This procedure is a game changer. It is allowing me to continue my quest of being a drug- and surgery-free role model for the fountain of youth for my family, clients, and even strangers.

I highly suggest you take up Dr. Ross Hauser M.D. on an incredibly generous offer for his incredible book Prolo Your Pain Away!

  1. Darrin,

    How is your body after the prolotherapy? I am facing 2 knee replacements and something is wrong with my hip, too. I am wondering if this might be an option for me. I am by no means an athlete like you and with the pain and insecurity i feel on my knees I am less active.

    thanks for filling me in!

  2. Amazing story, Darrin! Thank you so much for sharing your experience with Prolotherapy! My goodness, you did try a lot of things beforehand. So glad that you are doing well now after treatment. Keep up the great work! 🙂

    1. Hello Nicole,
      Thanks very much.. I am a relentless romantic.. when I lock onto an idea I don’t let go.. I am going in for my second treatment on my hip this coming tues.. I believe that will be all I need to be at 95% of function. Then I am going to get a treatment on my shoulder. I am excited.. I hope you are well and thank you for your support over the years..

  3. Did you try traditional physical therapy?
    How did you get insurance to cover?!?!
    Dr. Hauser does great- but the sodium morrhuate treatments only last a few years before pain returns, I’d be curious to find out if stem cell lasts longer, and I wonder what your X-rays would look like after you are feeling 90% better. Best wishes!

    1. Hi Sara,
      I am still dealing with my insurance. So far no luck.. but I am still working on them.. my hip improved so much that I would pay for it out of my own pocket again. Yes I did traditional physical therapy. I am not aware of what sodium morrhuate is? to my knowledge Dr. Hauser only had 3 options; 1. Prolotherapy ( which is sugar water ) 2. Stem Cell ( which is your blood spun and growth factors pulled out ) and 3. bone marrow / fat ( this was the most expensive ).. I have a feeling that if the patient does not continue to work out and strive for improving the joint / injury than likely hood of positive effects would be shorter lived..
