92-Year-Old Beverly Hills Celebrity with Knee Arthritis 99% Better
A 92 year old Beverly Hills, California celebrity with knee arthritis, consulted Dr. Lox. She was adamant she did not want surgery at her age.
This is a common concern.
Luckily, her health was excellent. She was very functional. She could walk good distances, travel, drive her car, shop, and do all her activities of daily living without compromise.
It was knee pain that made her consult Dr. Lox. After a detailed history and physical examination, there was mutual agreement on a treatment plan.
She would have knee regenerative medicine stem cell scientific applications tailored for her personal needs.
Dr. Lox is firm believer in personalized care, which makes him different than other stem cell doctors. Every patient deserves the time and attention to providing care that is specific to their needs. There is no one-size-fits-all treatment approach, that many clinics promote.
A teen athlete is not the same as an elite professional athlete. Every sport has its individual associated needs to be addressed with their own unique injury, and not every aging patient is the same.
People come in all sizes, shapes, and conditions. Experience truly does matter. That is why Dr. Lox receives tremendous word of mouth referrals from many different types of patients who are pleased with his his care.
A small boutique practice catering to the needs of each patient is Dr. Lox’s philosophy for providing excellent medical care. No matter if it is a pleased family member, professional athlete, or celebrity with knee arthritis, their word of mouth referral, or seal of approval means a lot to other patients.
Four months after her knee Regenerative Medicine treatment, she is walking even walking further. She stated she no longer has knee pain, is overall 99% better, and extremely pleased.
Not All Patients are the Same, and Do not get the Same Results
Because, not all patients are the same. There are so many factors affecting what determines a good Sports Medicine, Rehabilitation, and Regenerative Medicine candidate. This takes decades of experience, taking the time to listen to your patients, careful physical examination, record review if needed, and a personalized approach to treatment.
Having the knowledge to say honestly to a patient, that you do not feel you can help them, often gets a thank you for taking the time to be the thorough, listen, and be honest. Dr. Lox adheres to that policy.
By doing so you are open and honest, also in those you do treat have realistic goals is important.
Some patients have little understanding of diet, exercise, nutrition, sports medicine, anatomy, aging, degenerative arthritis, and what Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell science is all about.
Some think it magically works immediately. Having a detailed conversation about realistic goals for each patient is important to understand what is reasonable, and having a happy patient.
Degenerative arthritis does not revert back to age 18. This is not the fountain of youth for aging patients, but hopefully resetting the clock of time backwards and improving their quality of life can be achieved.
Teenagers are different. They typically have a sports injury, no degenerative arthritis, and not uncommonly depending on the problem can heal completely.
Interestingly, most of Dr. Lox’s patients state that don’t want to be teenagers again. They just want to feel better and enjoy life. Those are goals worth trying to achieve.
