Patient from Ireland Consults Dr. Lox for Knee Stem Cells
Patient from Ireland Consults Dr. Lox for Knee Stem Cells. No matter the geographic location, patients still have the same problems: The knee or hip is giving way. The shoulder grinds and has lost strength or motion. These problems all can have some type of surgery and may also have stem cell therapy in the right circumstance. Dennis M. Lox, MD,, a Sports and Regenerative Specialist in the Tampa Bay, Florida area sees all types of patients. Dr. Lox also sees all types of accents from patients who travel from afar to discuss their condition.
When a joint becomes worn, most patients if given a chance want to avoid joint replacement surgery. Stem cells are seen as viable alternatives to joint replacement surgery. There is minimal down time and return to sport can be much quicker following an injury – all appealing to athletes who are injured, thus making stem cells a popular choice. Now the patient needs an experienced Regenerative Medicine Specialist to evaluate their condition, and prescribe the appropriate treatment. This includes saying that you are not a good candidate for stem cell therapy if that is the case, and saying exactly why.
These are all important factors to consider when choosing a stem cell specialist, especially when considering getting on an international flight.
Ireland is a beautiful country, and it is a pleasure to assist in a patient’s care so far away.
