Knee Stem Cell Injections require a small quantity of the patient’s blood removed from body fat. It is centrifuged and the subcomponents are separated as the blood will separate in layers after being spun in the centrifuge. The desired platelet component is retained and then ready for injection. The physician determines the appropriate amount to inject based upon the joint and the associated injury or problem involved. Experience is highly important not only for accuracy, but in reducing post injection discomfort. This can be minimized by technique.
The whole procedure can be done in one day and usually only requires one injection.
