University President Has Hip Stem Cells With Dr. Lox

Picture of university campus

Dr. Lox has treated many types of patients. Their occupation is important to consider, as well as outside interests and goals.  This 63-year-old distinguished gentleman was a University President with an English Literature background. Not manual labor. Obviously lots of committee meetings. Did he walk the University Campus? Have a special parking lot? Yes to both questions.

Hip Pain and Hip Degenerative Arthritis or Osteoarthritis

Hip pain may arise from many causes in patients. A careful history, physical examination, and review of imaging testing, all help the experienced Regenerative Medicine expert arrive at an accurate diagnosis. Some patients are very complex, adequate time needs to spend with each and every patient because no two people are alike.

Personalized Hip Pain, Regenerative and Stem Cell Medicine

This is personalized medicine, not a one size fits all stem cell protocol for every patient. This patient had hip degenerative osteoarthritis or commonly called hip arthritis. How far they can walk is important. The University President liked to walk the university campus for exercise. I asked him to break up his walks to where he had no pain, and quantify this number of steps. Professionals and athletes typical comply with the doctor’s requests. Humans are humans, and some simply don’t behave. Animal studies for stem cells have usually better results because they are of uniform size, diet, and none marathons, or are in Iron Man competitions after age 60. Dr. Lox’s patients do and are of all sizes, shapes, and diets good and bad.

Hip and knee arthritis is extremely common after the age of 60. Over 50% of people will have arthritis after 60 years of age.

Weight, Age, And Hip Arthritis

The University President was 63 years old, 5’10 and 230 pounds. Humans are diverse, thus the need for personalized medicine. He has gained 70 pounds since his college days as a student. That is a lot of excessive extra force or wear on his hips over the decades.  His x-rays revealed moderate to severe degenerative arthritis as expected. It is not surprising, that his hips are painful to walk on. A structured diet and exercise program was what this medical doctor ordered.

He voiced a willingness to comply strictly. Dr. Lox is very detail oriented, or thorough in explaining degenerative arthritis, and factors that hinder and help the success of Regenerative Medicine and hip Stem Cell Therapy.

Realistic Goals and Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy

The patient’s goals, needs, and desires all must be thoroughly discussed. It takes time to do all this. However, it what is important to the patient, that sets the tone for their idea of successful Regenerative Medicine, and Stem Cell Therapy. A Regenerative Medicine expert needs to be able to discuss if the goals are reasonable. In this case, it was simple. His goals were to prevent total hip replacement surgery and walk the University Campus.

A realistic goal and a reasonable thoroughly informed patient makes for a compliant Regenerative Medicine and hip Stem Cell Therapy patient.

A True Regenerative Medicine Expert Listens to His Patients

The Regenerative Medicine expert should always help outline a course of treatment to obtain the patient’s goals. This is what is IMPORTANT to the patient. A good doctor should listen to his patients. In this managed care, the rushed medical world we live in, unfortunately, less time is spent with personal interactions with the patients. This makes it difficult to get the essential information and answer fully all their questions. Dr. Lox does believe in personalized care and is detail oriented.

Dr. Lox has lectured around the world, with some of the most respected and prestigious Regenerative Medicine, Stem Cell Scientists, Cartilage Repair University Professors, Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine experts, and Top Sports Medicine Physicians.
