Patient with Bilateral Knee Osteoarthritis Discusses Stem Cell Therapy with Dr. Lox
A patient with osteoarthritis of both knees consulted with Dennis M. Lox, MD, about the pros and cons of knee stem cell therapy. Many patients who contact Dr. Lox wish to avoid total knee joint replacement. Some patients present with mild osteoarthritis and obviously this is easier to treat.
Unfortunately, some wait until their knees are very arthritic. In these cases pain relief is more realistic than getting a knee that looks 20 again. Most patients are thankful for this and the ability to do daily activities. Patients with minimal arthritis respond to stem cells the best and often engage in sporting activities.
Sometimes only one knee is involved, especially if earlier trauma occurred, yet many have both knees affected. The stem cell procedure is so simple both knees can be done the same day.
