Adult Stem Cell Treatment for a Painful Knee relieves pain and enhances tissue regeneration naturally
Stem Cell treatment for a painful knee is typically diagnosed in patients who overuse this joint. Overuse may result in extreme pain, especially in sports enthusiasts and weekend warriors. Usually, stem cell procedures for the knee are performed in-office. Dr. Lucie will take bone marrow via an injection, apply a concentrate or spin it, then reapply it to the specific site. The in-office, non-invasive injection procedure takes around 45 minutes and allows most patients go back to work or can continue low-impact activities with some restrictions. Some patients have reported mild, decreasing pain and some have had immediate and sustained pain relief as tissue regenerates. If in-office, the result may allow you to delay or avoid invasive surgery. If surgery is required, stem cell therapy may be used at the surgical site to enhance the healing process. Dr. Lucie may use adult stem cell therapy following an arthroscopic procedure to remove damaged bone or cartilage, and will discuss all options with you.
