Knee and Hip Stem Cells in the Treatment of Arthritis

Patients are initially reluctant to consider stem cell therapy but as they begin to understand stem cells, they begin to consider it as a potential option. In one case, a patient who already underwent knee stem therapy did so well that he returned to have his hip treated.

Arthritis or Osteoarthritis

Arthritis or osteoarthritis is the most common reason patients elect to have stem cell procedures performed. Over half of the patients greater than 60 have osteoarthritis and knee and hip joint replacements are the two most common joint replacement surgeries.  Osteoarthritis is a progressive condition and understanding the nature of joint arthritis is beneficial to alter this progression.

Joint loading sports that involve the lower extremities such as running and hiking must be considered into a treatment plan. Additionally, obesity involves excessive joint loading. Individual evaluation of each patient allows the physician to prescribe a treatment strategy to ensure the best possible outcome. This personalized approach is most appropriate for patients desiring stem cell treatments.

 Arthritis of the Knee

Common symptoms of knee joint osteoarthritis include pain with activity, stiffness or swelling, loss of weight bearing capacity and loss of motion of the knee.
Often times, the knee may feel like it is going to give out and falling does occur. Furthermore, treatment for Arthritis of the knee includes weight loss, activity modification, physical therapy, and medication.

Viscosupplementation

Visco supplementation has been shown to be effective in preventing the patient from needing surgery. Viscosupplementation replaces the lubricating fluid in the joint, which dries out with the aging process and with arthritis.
