My Knees Feel Fantastic After Stem Cell Therapy
On routine followup after stem cell therapy to both knees, an excited patient proclaimed “my knees feel fantastic.” This is obviously what a stem cell doctor wishes to hear from everyone. Of course this is not always the case as in any field of medicine.However, Dennis M. Lox, MD, a Sports and Regenerative Medicine specialist knows there is more to achieving fantastic results than just injecting stem cells into a knee joint. Each patient is different and each patient must be approached from their own unique circumstances to achieve optimal results. This is the art of medicine. Stem Cell Therapy should not be a cookie cutter approach.

Each patient is different and each patient must be approached from their own unique circumstances to achieve optimal results. This is the art of medicine. Stem Cell Therapy should not be a cookie cutter approach.
No two patients are alike and, therefore, each patient must be assessed differently, and by utilizing a patient specific approach, Dr. Lox feels the odds become more favorable for a patient to have better results. This may seem like common sense, but patients and physicians alike sometimes are of the “everybody is the same” mentality.
Often, patients ask what are your success rates? The question then becomes for who? If patients are different, with different disorders, different ages, different health conditions, are we then assuming they are all alike? The answer is No.
By, approaching each patient from their own unique circumstances, the success for each patient rises, yet measures of success are goal or patient specific. A marathon runner with knee pain wishes to run marathons again. An elderly patient with advanced arthritis wants to be in less pain and enjoy life. A patient that states my knees feel fantastic is probably a good start towards success.
