Hip Arthritis: Stem Cell Therapy in Beverly Hills
Dennis M. Lox, MD, treats hip arthritis (osteoarthritis or OA) in his Beverly Hills, California office with stem cell therapy. Dr. Lox is an expert in Sports and Regenerative Medicine.
Stem cell treatments are a part of Regenerative Medicine, and Sports injuries are common to all age groups including those with hip arthritis.
Hip and knee pain are especially common after age 60. Over half of every American is afflicted with arthritis. California is the country’s most populous state and therefore is a common occurrence in doctors offices. Prior treatments of arthritis medications, cortisone shots, and even surgery do not stop the progression of joint arthritis. Regenerative Medicine offers hope in this area. The ability to stop the progression of hip or knee arthritis, or to aid in repair or regeneration is a significant medical milestone in arthritis management.
Stem cell therapy may aid in this process. No two patients are alike, and therefore consultation with Dr. Lox is an important first step in understanding if a patient is a candidate for stem cell therapy. Dr. Lox practices personalized medicine at his Beverly Hills, California office. This means each patient is assessed for their own unique goals, needs, and desires. This type of approach affords the best, whether the treatment plan is stem cells for hip arthritis or avascular necrosis (AVN).
Avascular necrosis (AVN) occurs when the blood supply to a region of bone is disrupted leading to bone cell death or necrosis. Avascular necrosis (AVN) may lead lead to a rapid hip joint degenerative arthritis resulting in hip joint collapse. This may result in a recommendation for hip joint replacement. Many patients seek alternatives to hip joint replacement from AVN or just normal hip arthritis with stem cell therapy.
