Stem Cell is the Best Option for Osteoarthritis of the Knee

Category: Blog

For people who are suffering from painful arthritis of the knee, an autologous bone marrow stem cell procedure is the only treatment that addresses the cause of the problem and has the potential to reverse some of the damage instead of just masking the pain.

This is why I consider a stem cell treatment to be the best option for treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee.  The treatment is:  safe, effective, does not change the anatomy of the joint, can be repeated with no adverse effects, does not require surgery or anesthesia, and there is minimal downtime after the procedure.  If you contrast this with other treatments, such as medication, lubricating agents, and surgery, there is no comparison.

Medications and lubricating agents just mask the pain and do not address the cause of the pain. Medications also have significant side effects.  Surgery can create more trauma and forever changes the normal anatomy of the joint. There is also significant downtime after surgery.

We offer this modern, safe and effective treatment to our patients with osteoarthritis of the knee and osteoarthritis of other joints, such as the hip joint.
