Knee Stem Cell Treatment

Knee Stem Cell Treatment

After having a serious skiing injury, her knee made multiple trips to the operating room with her orthopedic surgeon. She was now in her early 50’s and being told she needed her knee replaced. This was not what she wanted. After hearing that Dr. Lox was lecturing on Stem Cell cases, she opted for a consultation. X-Rays were needed to assess the amount of degeneration present. This reflects the extent of arthritis. Patients are often looking for alternatives to surgery, especially knee joint replacement. Stem Cell Therapy is increasingly being considered as a viable option to knee joint replacement, especially the younger the patient and more athletic. This case illustrates both points. A relatively young patient for a knee replacement and an individual who has alway been athletic. These situations are ideally suited to consider Stem Cell Therapy as an alternative treatment strategy.
