Patient in Dubai with Knee OA
A patient in Dubai contacted Dennis M. Lox, MD, for information regarding knee stem cell therapy. Dr. Lox an expert in knee stem cells has treated patients from around the world.
Knee problems may be manifested in many ways. Acute injuries such as knee meniscal tears, anterior cruciate ligament tears (ACL), knee sprains, collateral ligament tears and acute knee swelling may occur from sports injury or trauma.
Older injuries may be manifested by the development of arthritis (osteoarthritis), prior knee surgery changes, or as the result of aging.
Understanding knee joint pain and how stem cells work in relation to this is the cornerstone of successful Regenerative Medicine treatments with Platelet Rich Plasma or Stem Cell Therapy. Dr. Lox incorporates this science and an individualized personal approach to every patient. Knee arthritis is typically a progressive problem. Patients often consult Dr. Lox for knee stem cell therapy as an alternative to knee joint replacement. Dr. Lox understands the nature of osteoarthritis development and the role of stem cells in treating patients with knee pain. Knee arthritis or osteoarthritis is more than just knee joint wear and tear, it is a multifactorial problem. Prior trauma, surgery, obesity, and even genetic predisposition can all attribute to the development of knee joint arthritis. Stem cells may provide a variety of options for helping alleviate knee joint pain or alter the progression of knee degeneration. The ability to modify the inherently progressive nature of knee arthritis is a frequent reason patients opt for knee stem cell treatments. Also deferring or avoiding knee joint replacement surgery is another frequent reason patients elect to consider stem cell injection therapy for their knees. Knee stem cell therapy is the most frequent use of stem cells in orthopedic problems.
Whether it is a new injury or an old knee problem, Dr. Lox has the experience to help determine if knee stem cell therapy is a suitable option for each patient.
