Hip Arthritis and Stem Cell Therapy

Hip Arthritis and Stem Cell Therapy

Hip arthritis or osteoarthritis (OA), is more than just wear and tear, it is a complex interaction of many factors. Stem Cell Therapy for hip arthritis (OA) is becoming more common. Stem cell treatments for the hip is next to the knee in frequency.

Hip osteoarthritis more commonly referred to as just arthritis is a leading cause of debility and disability. Only, the knee is more frequently involved in the lower extremity. This is also reflected in the number of hip replacement surgeries performed. Hip replacement is second only to knee replacement.

Osteoarthritis may result from many factors including:

Prior hip surgery
Gait disturbances
Unequal leg lengths
Inflammatory responses

Osteoarthritis may be potentiated by any combination of these factors.

Trauma sets the degenerative arthritis cascade in motion. A series of signals continues to promote joint breakdown rather than repair, this leads to cartilage loss and eventual bone involvement.

Surgery is a form of joint trauma which accelerates arthritis. Surgery performed for trauma illustrates the additive accelerating effects upon joint breakdown.

Obesity places excessive strain on the joints. Women especially are prone to hip and knee arthritis as their joints are typically smaller than mens. This leads to more weight per joint surface area, potentiating arthritis development.

Regenerative Medicine treatments such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy may be used in hip arthritis. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a rich source of growth factors, which may help in alleviating pain and inflammation. Stem cell treatments may be considered in addition to, or in place of PRP depending upon individual circumstances. Each patient has unique needs and goals. Optimizing treatment to fit the patient is the best way to provide successful treatment.

Stem Cell Therapy may be a viable treatment option for hip arthritis, and an alternative strategy to hip replacement surgery.
