A 70-year-old patient from Singapore with Knee Osteoarthritis Consults Dr. Lox.
Dr. Lox is an expert in Sports and Regenerative Medicine and is consulted by patients from around the world.
Like many older patients, this patient has other medical problems and it was necessary to consult with his cardiologist prior to proceeding with stem cell treatment. Many patients are on anticoagulation medications and other specific conditions may require consultation with their specialist to determine if they are a candidate for Stem Cell Therapy. Fortunately, this is an infrequent occurrence. Even patients who are taking anticoagulant medications merely refrain from taking it for a few days before and after the procedure under their physician’s guidance. Stem cells have been shown in numerous safety trials to be exactly that. The majority of these trials have utilized other people’s stem cells (Allogenic). Dr. Lox utilizes the patients own cells (Autologous). For several scientific reasons, Dr. Lox feels at this time the use of autologous stem cells has many inherent benefits over someone else’s cells. Again this is fortunate for the patient as using someone else’s stem cells (Allogenic) falls under the category of a drug and none are FDA approved for arthritis. Knee arthritis is a frequent finding as patients age. When it becomes symptomatic it may be rapid or be present for decades.
Many patients are viewing Stem Cell Therapy as an appealing alternative to knee replacement surgery. Some patients for other medical reasons are told they cannot have knee replacement surgery leaving them with little options unless they are aware of Stem Cell Therapy. It is not just local or regional patients contacting Dr. Lox, patients from around the Globe have contacted him. Stem cells it appears has developed worldwide appeal.
