Patient From Uganda Travels to USA
tyle=”text-align: left;”>A patient From Uganda Travels to the USA For Knee Stem Cells With Dr. Lox. From every continent, Dennis M. Lox, MD, has seen a patient. Except so far no one from the north or south pole. A patient from Uganda, Africa, recently underwent knee stem cell therapy for a meniscal tear with degeneration. It is not uncommon that shortly after a knee meniscal surgery that osteoarthritis degeneration sets in. In fact, 10 years after knee surgery most patients will have arthritis. This patient from Uganda Africa decided he did not want his knee arthritis to advance and definitely did not want to have a knee replacement.
So he did his homework and decided to have Dennis M. Lox, MD, perform knee stem cell therapy on him. Dr. Lox notes that not all patients improve, however many patients have shown cartilage regrowth. When this occurs it is like setting back Father Time, and in theory, it should be possible to prevent a total knee replacement with this strategy. A strategy many patients desire.
