Conditions Treated by Regenerative Medicine, Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy for pain is probably the most frequent reason patients seek advice and help from Dr. Dennis Lox.
When relief is needed, Stem Cell Therapy may be applied to a variety of conditions.
Degenerative Arthritis or Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is a ‘wear and tear’ disease. Trauma, surgery, weight and genetics all play a role in the development of Osteoarthritis. One joint that commonly develops Osteoarthritis is the knee. Knee arthritis is a progressive disorder, and patients may be seen at different spectrums along this progression. A common goal of many patients is to avoid knee replacement surgery.
Avascular Necrosis or AVN
Avascular Necrosis (AVN) also known as Osteonecrosis, Legg Calve Perthes, etc… Is a complicated and troubling condition. Osteonecrosis refers to Osteo meaning bone, Necrosis meaning cell death. Bone that becomes necrotic may collapse and lead to the need for a joint replacement surgery. Many patients want to avoid this outcome. This leads them to seeking help from Dr. Lox with Stem Cell Therapy.
Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy can be a great alternative to surgery for an athlete that is wanting to return to his or her sport.
