Patient From England Travels for Knee Stem Cells with Dr. Lox

A Patient from London, England decided to take full advantage of his Florida holiday, and seek consul with Dr.Dennis Lox an expert in stem cell treatments. The patient was an avid fencer and had previously injured his knee during lunging maneuvers. Now in his late 40’s he was having pain in his knee with simple activities. A London orthopedic surgeon obtained an MRI which revealed a meniscal tear. The orthopedic surgeon recommended meniscectomy. The patient was in the medical field and researched stem cell treatments for knee pain. His research led him to Dr. Dennis Lox a Sports and Regenerative Medicine expert. Dr. Lox noted immediately that this was not an acute event, but rather the result¬†of multiple traumatic events over the years. The meniscal tear was probable degenerative in nature, as x-rays revealed signs of arthritic changes in both knees. Trauma accelerates arthritis, and surgery is a form of trauma. Removing a portion of his meniscus would only accelerate his degenerative cascade and more than likely push him towards a total knee replacement in his 50’s or 60’s. the patient was in excellent health, wished to remain active, especially later in his life. After hearing Dr. Lox explain the progressive nature of osteoarthritis, the former fencer with knee pain deduced he had nothing to lose by trying the stem treatment on his knee, and quite possible everything to gain. Dr. Lox gave him some scientific articles to read, answered all his questions and he decided to have the stem cell therapy to his knees before returning to England. Many of Dr. Lox’s patients come from afar. Traveling is not a problem, as unlike surgery, treatment with stem cells does not impair mobility.
