Canadian with Knee Pain
Canadian with Knee Pain Flys to see Dr. Lox in Beverly Hills for Stem Cell Treatment. A Canadian did her homework and opted to travel to see Dennis M. Lox, MD, a stem cell expert in his Beverly Hills, California office. Dennis M. Lox, MD, an expert in knee and stem cell treatments frequently treats patients from around the globe for many conditions including knee disorders and knee osteoarthritis or knee arthritis. Dr. Lox sees many patients from Canada and the United Kingdom for stem cell therapy due to the differences in their healthcare systems versus the United States. When a patient from Canada requested knee stem cells as an alternative to knee joint replacement this is a commonly sought goal in Dr. Lox’s practice in Beverly Hills, California and in his Tampa Bay, Florida office. Dr. Lox is also frequently asked about whether other countries are ahead of the United States in terms of stem cell treatment. Many patients are still unfamiliar with stem cell treatments. Prior news stories regarding President Bush banning federal funding of embryonic stem cell research or even the Vatican’s position on embryonic stem cells are misunderstood in relation to the use of adult stem cells. The use of stem cells has been used for decades in the treatment of leukemia with bone marrow transplants. Today treatment is more sophisticated allowing the use of the patients own stem cells in leukemia to avoid harsh immune suppressive drugs given for treatment when older bone marrow transplants are used. The Vatican supports the use of adult stem cells and even sponsors stem cells conferences at the Vatican to gather support for the science.
Today stem cell research in the United States is flourishing. 10 years ago there were pockets of stem cell research centers in the United States. Now every major university has Regenerative Medicine or Tissue Engineering departments fostering stem cell research. Dr. Lox lectures on a national and international level and is aware of what transpires on the international level with athletes and patients around the world. There are differences in various clinics and treatment approaches, however, what is available to most patients for the treatment of knee problems is not surpassed by offshore clinics. On the contrary, there is a burgeoning reverse trend for patients from other countries seeking stem cell treatment with Dr. Lox, as it is successful and often cheaper than some of these offshore clinics. Patients with knee pain and arthritis are increasing looking for treatment options that will deter or prevent total knee joint replacement.
