Stem Cell Therapy Knee Repair vs Knee Surgery?
If you have regular knee pain from bone-on-bone arthritis, osteoarthritis, a knee injury, or previous orthopedic knee surgery, you should consider stem cell therapy, especially if you have an active, demanding lifestyle or want to avoid surgery. The risks, pain, and inconvenience of a more invasive procedure may raise concerns for you about the complications of anesthesia, given your age, or the physical impact of the surgical procedure itself. If you want a safe, effective option for reducing knee pain and improving mobility without surgery, you should consult with Dr. Lee about stem cell therapy.
The Advantages of Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain
Stem cell therapy uses the body’s natural healing process, called regeneration, so it is much less invasive than traditional orthopedic surgery. It doesn't require anesthesia, has no downtime, and has a much quicker recovery time. Most importantly, stem cell therapy is effective. In a study published in the International Journal of Cell Biology, pain and mobility scores were more improved after two years for patients who had stem cell therapy treatments than patients who had total knee replacements. We have had spectacular success in decreasing the symptoms of osteoarthritis, other arthritis's, and knee injuries, often dramatically improving mobility and decreasing pain.
What to Expect from Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain at Regenesis
Dr. Lee will conveniently perform your stem cell therapy treatment at the Regenesis Stem Cell Center in Huntsville, Alabama. There is no need to go to a hospital. Since knee joints are complex systems, your knee's precise diagnosis is essential. Before moving ahead with your stem cell therapy, Dr. Lee will review your medical history, conduct a thorough medical examination, and review or order advanced imagery and perform an ultrasound to identify the knee’s damaged areas. Only then will we develop your comprehensive treatment plan.
If you choose stem cell therapy as part of your treatment plan, when you come to Regenesis for your procedure, the first step will be to prepare your own stem cells and platelet-rich plasma. Your first stem cells are formed at conception and give rise to all the cells in the body. For stem cell therapy, where the goal is repair and regeneration, we use your own cells. One of your stem cells is a specific type of cell known as a mesenchymal stem cell (MSC). MSC’s can divide into a variety of important cells including cartilage, ligaments, tendons, bone, muscle, and fat. Robust reservoirs for these cells are in your own bone marrow. We use the entire entourage of cells from your marrow. In addition to stem cells, our stem cell therapy includes using platelet-rich plasma concentrated from your blood. These platelets release an abundance of growth factors to stimulate healing in injuries of tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints and recruit stem cells to become active in the area. Several clinical studies have proven that even stand-alone platelet-rich plasma injections will improve function and mobility in the knee as well as decrease pain.
On the day of the stem cell therapy procedure, using oral or IV sedation and a local anesthetic, Dr. Lee will carefully remove bone marrow that contains your stem cells. The stem cells are then processed in our lab and removed from the collected sample while you wait in the comfort of our clinic. The processing takes about two hours. Next, after you are given additional sedation and the entire joint is numbed, Dr. Lee will use real-time fluoroscopy and ultrasound to precisely inject your own concentrated live stem cells and platelet-rich plasma into your knee in exact locations like the joint, bone, cartilage, ligaments, muscle, or soft tissue. The stem cell therapy injections take about 20 to 40 minutes to complete. The live stem cells and platelet-rich plasma then initiate a process where the body's natural healing and regenerative capacity is supercharged. You can expect to leave the clinic with the same mobility as when you arrived. While it takes about three to six months for the injured tissue to fully repair, pain relief may begin much sooner.
