Knee Stem Cells – An Alternative to Knee Replacement
As people age they face the wear and tear effects of arthritis. Often, patients are told when its bad enough we will replace your knee. Now in the age of regenerative medicine, patients are seeking options that are an alternative to knee replacement. Regenerative medicine therapies,such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy are becoming more common. Patients are looking to avoid knee replacement if possible as it’s very invasive and is not always the best solution.
Dennis M. Lox, MD,, a Sports and Regenerative Medicine Specialist, views early preventative measures in higher risk arthritis patients and regenerative procedures such as PRP and Stem Cell Therapy as the wave of the future and, for many patients, as an alternative to knee replacement.
