Very nice doctor. I needed a knee replacement surgery which he no longer does, but did refer me to another doctor to help me.

I travel from Georgetown to see Dr. Cunningham. He's been my orthopedic surgeon for many years. He really explains the injury, provides options for treatment and takes the time to answer questions. I trust Dr. Cunningham and have recommended him to many who were also pleased with his knowledge and treatments. I will continue to seek his advice and care.

I had prior experience with Dr. Cunningham, from a knee ligament replacement in 2003 and a rotator cuff repair in 2009. Based on those, I had a lot of confidence in his opinion. Since I no longer lived in Austin, I had been treated for an arthritic shoulder by another ortho surgeon, and after more steroid injections than I remember over the past 5 years, was given an opinion that I needed a total reverse shoulder replacement, and I was unwilling to do that without a second opinion. I visited Austin to see Dr. Cunningham, and after reviewing my MRI, he explained a biologic option, and said he had been working in the field for about 6 years. He was completely open about insurance (no coverage), costs, chance of success, and expectations about length of relief. He listened to me, explained the process, and answered my questions, leaving the decision to me. On one afternoon, in about an hour, he extracted bone marrow cells, processed them in the office, and injected them into my arthritic shoulder. Six weeks later, I am pain free, have full range of motion, and can do the things (golf, fishing, weight work and yard work) I haven't been able to do for years. All this at 75 years of age! I can't recommend Dr. Cunningham highly enough. He is consummately professional, skilled, knowledgeable, and genuinely interested in his patients' outcomes. He also has a professional and capable staff. Working with all of them was a pleasure.

I had experienced pain in my right shoulder because of a small tear in my rotator cuff and arthritis. I lost count how many cortisone shots I had over the years. Received a PRP shot from Kelly and I now have full motion in my shoulder and no pain. I'm 66 years old and I recommend getting the shot.

I came to Dr. Cunningham with severe pain in both the right knee and right shoulder. In addition, I had a limited range of motion in the shoulder. The knee pain was so bad that I was taking both ibuprofen and Tylenol together at once to alleviate the pain, along with icing the knee joint. Both barely helped. Dr. Cunningham diagnosed both as severe osteoarthritis, with the cartilage gone in both the knee and the shoulder joints. Dr. Cunningham gave me stem cell therapy in-office to remove stem cells from my pelvis, centrifuge them, and inject them back into my knee and shoulder. The entire procedure was done in an hour in his office under local anesthesia and was only mildly uncomfortable. I’ve had worse in the dentist’s office. Two days after the procedure, I felt immediate pain relief in my knee. I would say 80% to 90% of the pain is gone. The pain went from being intolerable to being able to resume pretty much normal activities. I have a greater range of motion in my shoulder, but not quite a full range of motion. Dr. Cunningham told me that I also have bone spurs in my shoulder which is still limiting my motion which could only be removed through surgery. In summary, I had immediate pain relief from the stem cell procedure which is still on-going several months later and also obtained better range of motion. It has brought my normal daily activities back to normal, although I still am waiting to resume limited weight lifting. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Cunningham for this procedure and going back for follow-up injections in 12-18 months if necessary if the pain returns in that timeframe.

Came in with badly damaged knees from running and arthritis...barely “ functional...” Stem cell injections have restored strength, mobility, and freedom from pain. Highly recommend Dr. Cunningham and his staff!

I have avascular necrosis in my left shoulder, and Dr.Cunningham’s approach of injecting stem cells into both the joint and bone blood supply of the shoulder gave me 100% pain relief within 3 weeks. I’m so happy I chose to do this! I would highly recommend!

Awesome experience - no more knee pain! Hip is next. My own Stem cells made it happen. Dr. Cunningham is so knowledgeable and has had so much success with this process. My highest recommendation. Reasonable prices compared to others.

As usual, Dr. Cunningham was kind, concise, and knowledgeable. I appreciate that surgical intervention is not always his first plan of treatment. He’s an incredible doctor who treats everyone with patience and understanding.

I dislocated, fractured and broke my ankle in multiple places during a simple fall in my home. Dr. Cunningham’s kind and efficient staff got me scheduled for a consult very quickly and I was in surgery the next day. Dr. Cunningham did a fabulous job repairing my ankle (2 titanium plates and 13 screws.) He was very involved in every step of my recovery and I’m back at 100% just 10 weeks post break. His staff is very friendly, flexible and attentive. I don’t think my recovery would have been as quick or smooth under anyone else’s care. Thank you Dr. Cunningham and team for getting me back on my feet.

I can’t thank Dr. Cunningham enough for bringing me back from a devastating knee injury. He came highly recommended and I wouldn’t trust anyone else. So grateful!
