Knee Injury & Arthritis

Modern medicine has advanced a lot with the introduction of regenerative medicine. It has made it possible to treat severe knee conditions without surgery.

THE CONCERNS INVOLVED WITH SURGERY

Knee replacement surgery is a common procedure where a metal prosthetic implant is inserted in place of the knee joint. The invasive nature of the surgery makes it highly risky. A typical knee replacement surgery has the following risks:

Knee replacement surgery is a commonly performed procedure that involves inserting an artificial joint made of metal, plastics, alloys and polymers. The risks of invasive knee replacement surgery are high with a potential for:

  • A need for a blood transfusion
  • Artery Damage
  • Blood Clots
  • Ligaments Damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Potential osteolysis (In case of loosening of metal and plastic fragments and traveling into the body)

That’s why it is very sensible to consider the safer ways before deciding to have a knee replacement surgery. After a surgery, most patients cannot walk without assistance for 3 months.

Regenerative Medicine presents a non-surgical approach to correct knee conditions that otherwise usually need knee surgery. The recovery is faster and the risks are really low. Lets have a look at a comparison between surgery and regenerative medicine.

Knee arthritis treatment is now highly successful using stem cell therapy for knee arthritis.

Stem cell therapy is a treatment where we derive Adult non-controversial stem cells from the patient’s fat cells or bone marrow and inject them into the damaged area. The knee stem cell injection help the injury heal at a much faster pace with much more pain relief and a good chance at total recovery.

Basically, Regenerative Medicine uses body’s own natural healing power to focus on healing the damage faster. We use two types of Regenerative treatments in our office: Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma. Seeing on your condition, we might use a combination of both.
