Puerto rican with Severe Knee Arthritis Consults Dr. Lox for Stem Cells
Puerto Rican with Severe Knee Arthritis Consults Dr. Lox for Stem Cells for evaluation of treating her knees with Stem Cell Therapy. Her arthritis (osteoarthritis) had been progressing over several years. Now she has been told that she should consider having both knees replaced. The prospect of something going wrong with the surgery or being worse off after having her knees replaced was frightening for her. She researched Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy. She contacted Dennis M. Lox, MD, and arranged a consultation. Dr. Lox concluded she was severely advanced in her arthritis and no definitive statement regarding how she would do could be guaranteed. Often this type of guarantee is what patients wish to hear, however
Dr. Lox promotes being candidly honest with patients. Even patients who seem to be unlikely candidates may surprise everyone with their progress. Likewise, some patients who appear to be excellent candidates do not respond. In this case, the patient has elected to consider all the information presented to her to make up her mind. Proper education is part of the process, and should always be a goal.
