Knee Pain Therapy with Stem Cells

Dr. Charles Lee sees many types of knee pain for evaluation for stem cell therapy. Some have acute injuries such as a torn meniscus or ACL, others have arthritis and still others have not improved after knee surgery.

Treating Knee Pain With Stem Cells

Regenesis stem cell therapy commonly treats the following:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Meniscus Tears
  • Bakers (Popliteal) Cyst
  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Tears
  • Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) Tears
  • Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) Tears
  • Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL) Tears
  • Patella and Patella Tendon Injuries
  • Other Tendon injuries

Injuries

Meniscal, tendon and ligament tears are common injuries for which people seek Regenesis’ stem cell and platelet rich plasma therapies. Often patients pursue these therapies because of their desire to heal without the potential complications and down time of surgery, especially athletes and those with active lifestyles and jobs. Joint surgery and/or steroid injections may well accelerate arthritic changes. Professional athletes are no longer the only demographic to have affordable access to stem cell therapy as an alternative to knee surgery.

Arthritis

Osteoarthritis, known commonly as degenerative joint disease, is essentially wear and tear arthritis. It may present in varying degrees, from early or mild arthritis to severe debilitating arthritis. At any point in the spectrum of severity, patients may consult Dr. Charles Lee for stem cell alternatives to traditional orthopedic care. Of course, it is easier to address mild to moderate osteoarthritis, but we are having spectacular success in decreasing the severity of disease symptoms in patients with severe osteoarthritis. Arthritis is uniquely suited to stem cell injections, which often greatly improves mobility and decreases pain. Rheumatoid Arthritis is also amenable to stem cell therapy, and we are having success treating this disorder also.

Regenesis’ platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapies are attractive options to consider that may help improve mobility and pain, avoid surgery, speed recovery after surgery or improve after surgery has failed.
