Professional Baseball Pitcher turns to Stem Cells to Treat Knee Pain
A professional baseball pitcher had several knee surgeries by two prominent sports medicine orthopedic surgeons. He continued to have symptoms after both surgeries, essentially making both unsuccessful.
The pitcher heard of Dennis M. Lox, MD, – a sports and regenerative physician – after learning the doctor had helped a professional football player with a similar situation through stem cell therapy. The football player had experienced continued problems despite surgery.
After undergoing stem cell treatment the football was able to resume workouts that previously brought on significant swelling.
Based on this information, the pitcher came from out of state to consult Dr. Lox and after learning more about the procedure, he elected to undergo stem cell therapy to his affected knee. The procedure was easily performed and he is healthy and eager to resume training. Dr. Lox works with trainers and players to continue their rehabilitation – through medical technology that includes stem cells and platelet rich plasma.
