When your told you need a knee replacement there may be another option. Regenerative Medicine therapies like Stem Cell Therapy, and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) may be viable treatment options.

Regenerative Medicine is a new emerging field that is rapidly expanding into many medical fields. In orthopedics and musculoskeletal medicine, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy have seen a surge with elite athletes and in osteoarthritis of knee joints.
