A 60-year-old with chronic knee pain and osteoarthritis turned to Dr. Dennis Lox for Stem Cell Therapy.
A 60-year-old female patient who has chronic knee pain and osteoarthritis turned to Dennis M. Lox, MD, for Stem Cell Therapy. Her life was once very athletic playing many sports and having an active lifestyle. Pain, swelling and his inability to be active caused his weight to increase to 305 pounds, which compounded his knee arthritis. The patient traveled from another state after hearing of Dr. Lox and agreeing to his recommendations. Knee stem cells for the treatment of pain, arthritis, and quality of life may be a viable option for some individuals to avoid knee replacement surgery. It may also be life-altering.
Weight and How It Affects Your Knees
Knee pain in older patients is commonly associated with osteoarthritis or arthritis. As conservative treatment such as anti-inflammatories, cortisone, viscosupplementation injections do not alter the long-term effects of arthritis patients seeking to avoid knee joint replacement are seeking alternative options to knee surgery. This patient elected to have Knee Stem Cell Therapy with Dr. Lox. 1 year later has virtually no pain in his knees. This resulted in his proclamation at 1-year follow-up with Dr. Lox that his treatment was “unbelievable”. His repeat x-Rays showed improvement, a much-desired outcome for knee arthritis pain. Also equally impressive was that his weight which was 305 pounds at his highest, has now decreased to 205. These lifestyle and body changes may not only be important for pain reduction, improved quality of life, but overall health.
