German Man Inquires about Knee Stem Cells

German flag

A man from Germany consulted Dennis M. Lox, MD, about knee stem cell options. Knee stem cells are gaining popularity as more patients begin to understand the various potential applications for stem cells in today’s medical field. A stem cell is a helper cell which aids in tissue repair and regeneration. Most patients seek to prevent knee replacement surgery and improve the functional level.

Knee Injuries

Athletes with knee injuries can be severely limited in their sports, however, stem cells could provide a therapeutic measure to regain performance or prevent surgery. Stem cells provide the avenue to facilitate an athletes goals. On the other hand, multiple surgical procedures on the knee result in long-term damage or osteoarthritis of the knee.

Knee Arthritis Treatment

Stem cell therapy for knee ailments offers the possibility to avoid surgery and is the only method shown to stop the progressive nature of osteoarthritis. Prescription arthritis or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and cortisone do not deter this process because pain relief may occur but arthritis will continue to progress. Therefore, medications do not aid in the goal of preventing knee joint replacement surgery. In fact, the traditional medical model has not geared toward the patient’s long-term health. Becoming more educated on stem cells and regenerative medicine may take some time but is worth the effort. The future of most medical disciplines will include stem cell science in various applications.
