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.
