Patient From Mexico with Knee Arthritis
A patient from Mexico suffering from knee pain consulted Dr. Lox on having knee stem cell therapy. She is in her 70’s and does not wish to have a total knee replacement surgery. She has researched stem cells and felt comfortable with her discussion with Dr. Lox. More patients are considering having stem cell therapy instead of surgery. It is minimally invasive and there is no downtime associated with knee replacement surgery. Dr. Lox has patients from all over the world consult him for his knowledge and expertise in Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy.
Knee arthritis is a progressive disorder in which the rate of progression varies from each patient. It may be possible to reverse the degeneration with stem cell treatment, and as a result, it may be possible to avoid total knee replacement, which this particular patient desired and many patients who consult with Dr. Lox wish to do.
The future of stem cells is immense. Today we are creating entire body organs such as kidneys with 3-D printers. The current technology may seem science fiction, yet it is as real as automated self-directing cars. The problem is how to implement and carry forward not just safely, but practically with cost and insurance coverage for these technological breakthroughs.
