Knee Stem Cell Treatment for Osteoarthritis: a 6 month Review
Knee Stem Cell Treatment for Osteoarthritis: a 6-month Review.
A 71-year-old former active athlete had developed progressive knee pain and debility.
The osteoarthritis (OA) was severe enough his orthopedic surgeon had recommended a knee replacement. He had difficulty getting off the couch and his grandson wanted him better to play catch with him. He decided to pursue knee stem cell treatment with Dr. Lox as an alternative to knee replacement surgery. He had several trips scheduled for the coming year including Yellowstone Park and Washington D.C.
After having the Stem Cell Therapy with Dr. Lox he progressed rapidly. His knee pain diminished and began walking further without pain. By 4 months he returned from Yellowstone Park and had a great vacation. At 6 months he returned having gone to Washington D.C. He spent 14 hours one day walking around. He noted he had some stiffness, but 14 hours of walking was previously inconceivable. The grand statement was reserved for last, he was now playing catch with his grandson.
