Knee Pain Following Knee Surgery: Stem Cells an Option?

A patient in Los Angles (LA), California queried Dr. Lox as to what do when her knee pain failed to improve after knee surgery. She was now 3 years after her knee surgery, and continued to have knee pain. She was interested in stem cell therapy for her knee. She was in her early 50’s and wanted to avoid another arthroscopic knee surgery, and was adamant that she not have knee joint replacement surgery in the future. The truth is she is at significant risk for continued acceleration of knee arthritis if she has another knee arthroscopic surgery. Long term she already is at great risk for continued progression of knee osteoarthritis. Living in LA California she enjoys the outdoor lifestyle, and wishes to continue this way of life, as well as yogi and outdoor aerobic exercises. Stem cells are certainly an option for patients in this situation however, not all patients are the same. This is where the expertise of an experienced Sports and Regenerative Medicine specialist such as Dr. Dennis Lox came be invaluable.
