You have just been told you need a knee replacement. Is there another option?
Perhaps. Treatment for most conditions have options. Understanding the pros and cons of knee replacement is very important. There are no guarantees. In most cases there are no serious problems, however many complications can occur. Knee replacements may have a lifespan of 10-15 years, before wearing out. Health issues in the future can not always be foreseen. Many individuals now seek to avoid knee replacement. There is also a trend to try and halt the progression of arthritis so as to avoid knee replacement. Stem cells are becoming an ever increasing consideration in these circumstances. The key is to have an experienced physician to assist in the decision making process. Dennis M. Lox, MD, is an expert in Sports and Regenerative Medicine. Dr. Lox believes in helping the patient to become more educated to arrive at a decision.

This takes into account many factors, that are discussed with the patient. There is no cookie-cutter recipe to this. Stem cell therapy should be discussed in the context of each patient’s unique circumstances goals and desires, in relation to what is resonance to expect. This is dependent on severity of arthritis, overall health and intended activity level. A highly active athlete will subject the knee to greater future stress than a sedentary individual. This does not preclude stem cell treatment, it is just a variable Dr. Lox will discuss with each patient. Not too infrequently, patients are told they need a knee replacement, tey do well with stem cell therapy. This is part of the education process.
