When knee arthritis interferes with daily activities the Pacific Ocean is not a barrier to seek consultation or treatment. A patient from Hawaii consulted Dr. Lox when his knee began to become more symptomatic. Originally injuring himself parachuting he now had classic symptoms of knee osteoarthritis. He wanted to resume an active lifestyle, and avoid knee replacement in the future. He had researched alternatives to knee joint replacement as well as the natural history of knee osteoarthritis. Knowing that knee osteoarthritis tends to progress with time, he was interested in pursuing stem cells.
Stem cells may be an option for select patients. Determination of this is best done after obtaining the medical history, examination and review of records. Sometimes new imaging or x-Rays are requested. It is always best to treat the patient as a unique individual with unique goals, needs, and desires. This assures the best opportunity for a good outcome, and goal achievement.
