Canadian with Hip Arthritis has Stem Cells with Dr. Lox in Beverly Hills
A Canadian who lives in Western Canada flew to see Dr. Lox in his Beverly Hills, California office for hip stem cells. The woman had suffered from hip pain for several years. She had tried conservative measures but to no avail. She investigated hip stem cells after reading about Dennis M. Lox, MD,. After consultation with Dr. Lox, she elected to proceed with hip stem cell therapy.
Hip arthritis may develop from a variety of causes. These may include prior trauma, surgery, excessive weight gain and genetic predisposition to hip arthritis.
Stem cells may exert a reparative effect on hip arthritis by influencing the signals which propagate degenerative hip breakdown. Stem cells are also reparative cells and may work towards repairing damaging cartilage. There are many clinical trials underway to research exactly how to maximize this effect.
Unfortunately, too many patients learn they have hip arthritis after they have severe X-ray changes. This has sometimes been referred to as silent arthritis in which the symptoms develop long after the X-rays or radiographic changes occur.
Other patients begin to complain of a hip or joint pain early and their corresponding X-ray’s show early arthritis. In the treatment of hip arthritis with stem cell therapy, early diagnosis and treatment are generally associated with a better outcome. This is not always the case, as some patients with severe X-ray changes do well with stem cell therapy. In all cases, it is better to consult an expert such as Dr. Lox who has treated a vast array of patients from all age groups and with a variety of problems.
