MARC-DARROWMarc Darrow MD, JD of Los Angeles California, is a Board Certified Physiatrist, professor, and author specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Dr. Darrow is an Assistant Clinical Professor Of Medicine at the University of California at Los Angeles School of Medicine where he teaches the regenerative orthopedic techniques of Stem Cells, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), and Prolotherapy.

Dr. Darrow graduated from Northwestern University, followed by a Medical degree from the University of Hawaii. He then completed his Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency at the University of California School of Medicine. In addition, Dr. Darrow completed a Doctorate in Jurisprudence from Golden Gate University College of Law in San Francisco, as well as a Masters of Business Taxation from the University of Southern California.

After several sports injuries, Dr. Darrow was healed by self-injections of Prolotherapy (short for “proliferation therapy”) which promotes rapid, and prolific, growth of cartilage and collagen, the structural protein of the body. By rejuvenating injured or worn connective tissue, musculoskeletal pain can be relieved.

After realizing the healing potential of the then little-known Prolotherapy, Dr. Darrow devoted his regenerative medicine practice to many thousands of patients suffering from debilitating pain. Dr. Darrow has becoming a leading expert and teacher of Stem Cell Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma, and Prolotherapy for treating conditions from head to foot, including advanced osteoarthritis. He finds it unnecessary to refer patients for elective musculoskeletal surgery, and uses the by-line “Take the Surgery Out Of Pain” on his KRLA weekly radio show.

As an adjunct to health, Dr. Darrow’s wife, Michelle Darrow, is a Nurse Practitioner, who teaches the Ideal Protein weight loss program. In addition, she performs cosmetic procedures with Botox and Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, and is certified in the Vampire Face Lift (a cosmetic procedure of injecting Platelets) that Kim Kardashian made famous.
