If you’re one of the millions of people suffering from knee pain due to arthritis, patellofemoral syndrome, chondomalacia, pes anersine bursitis, Baker’s cyst, patellar tendonitis, meniscus tear or ligament damage, total knee replacement surgery doesn’t have to be your only treatment option. The rapidly evolving field of regenerative medicine uses stem cells to heal your body’s tissues and bones. The process has seen positive results in joint disorders and injury.

our knee joint is a complex and powerful joint — the largest in your body. A knee injury can cause you a lifetime of pain and suffering if not corrected. Millions of Americans visit emergency rooms with physical knee injuries every year. And even more complain of chronic or persistent knee pain as they age or recover from knee injuries.

The reason so many knees have issues is that they’re major weight-bearing joints. Your knees not only allow you to move, walk, stand, jump and run, they also provide stability. Pain or joint disease to one or both knees could debilitate you, forcing you rely on crutches or even a wheelchair. But stem cell therapy for your knees can help repair your damaged joint while allowing you to avoid surgery.

Treatment Starts with a Diagnosis

Even if you feel your knee pain is mild, seek medical attention to get a diagnosis. If your knee heals properly, you prevent future problems. Like ankle injuries, if your knee injury heals poorly, you may face a lifetime of pain. Your diagnosis may be:

  • ACL sprain or tear
  • PCL sprain or tear
  • MCL sprain or tear
  • LCL sprain or tear
  • Meniscus tear
  • Arthritis —either rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis
  • Tendinopathy or tendonitis, such as hamstring tendinopathy or biceps femoris insertional tendinopathy
  • Patellofemoral syndrome
  • Chondromalacia
  • Pes anserine bursitis
  • Baker’s cyst, which happens when a fluid-filled bubble forms in your knee joint

Best-in-Class Solution to Knee Injuries

The traditional treatment has been arthroscopic knee surgery or total knee replacement, which involves pain management, physiotherapy, supportive sports like swimming and dietary changes. Knee surgery carries risks and is expensive. Additionally, it produces average success rates, long-term complications like osteoarthritis and long recovery times.
