Stem Cell Therapy For Knees: My X-Rays Didn’t Tell The Whole Story
A recent patient was told by a physician he needed both knees replaced. The patient was in his 50’s and was concerned about having bilateral knee joint replacement. The patient researched stem cell therapy for knees – knee osteoarthritis in particular. He elected to consult with Dennis M. Lox, MD, – a leading expert on stem cell therapy. Dr. Lox showed the patient an x-ray of both knees and explained in detail his x-ray findings. The patient explained to Dr. lox that no one had taken the time to explain anything to him regarding the x-ray findings. He reported he was shown a model of a knee replacement and asked when he would like to schedule his knee joint replacement.
When he understood the findings of Dr. Lox and looked at his x-rays he replied “my x-rays are better than I was led to believe.” He elected to have stem cell therapy on his knees with Dr. Lox rather than proceed with total knee joint replacement. Stem cell therapy for knees is a solution that more people are learning about as a viable alternative to knee surgery.
