Knee pain is tough. Having surgery to fix the knee pain only to not improve, or worse yet get worse, can be a nightmare. Stem cell Therapy for the treatment of failed knee meniscal surgery is becoming more common. Dennis M. Lox, MD, a Sports Medicine and Regenerative physician has treated many patients with failed knee meniscal surgery with Stem Cell Therapy. Dr. Lox advocates a thorough understanding of what is wrong with e knee. This can only be accomplished by taking the time to talk with the patient, evaluate prior studies (x-rays and MRI’s) as well as perform a complete physical examination. Another important point is to careful evaluate patients goals, expectations, sports needs, and provide a treatment plan. If Dr. Lox considers the patient a good candidate for Stem Cell Therapy, a decision on Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), post stem cell injection limitations and when to reimplement activity for the knee is made. Dr. Lox stresses post procedure rehabilitation, and specific sports goals are always kept in mind during treatment. A professional football player and soccer player, both who failed knee meniscus surgery improved with Stem Cell Therapy under Dr. Lox’s direction.

Regenerative Medicine therapies such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy, are becoming more prominent in the care of elite athletes who need optimal knee function. The use of PRP and Stem Cell Therapy may be a consideration for those  who have had knee surgery and failed to improve.
