If you’re looking relief from persistent knee pain due to arthritis, sports injuries, joint or nerve injuries, Regen Orthopedics may have a solution for you. Through advanced regenerative medicine treatments, your body’s own platelets and stem cells can be activated to stimulate healing and stop knee pain.
What types of knee pain
can be treated?
Knee pain is very common and can be caused by a wide range of conditions. It can start suddenly or develop as a mild discomfort and gradually worsen. The exact location of the pain symptoms will help the physician determine the type of problem that needs to be treated. Patients with knee pain may have trouble walking, walk with a limp or feel unstable.
Research has shown that treatment with non-surgical regenerative therapies such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC) have been helpful for treating a number of conditions such as Arthritis, Meniscal Tears, Ligament Sprains, Patellar Tendonitis/Tendinosis, Osteochondral (Cartilage) Defects, Patellofemoral Pain (Jumper’s Knee) and Baker’s Cysts.
How does it work?
Regenerative medicine treatments can activate your body’s own adult stem cells and blood platelets to stimulate healing and speed repair for bone, muscle, joint, soft tissue and nerve injuries. We all have healing stem cells in our bodies. Primarily found in bone marrow and fatty tissue, these cells act as repairmen and can regenerate into the type of cell that is needed when injected into an injured area.
The procedure itself involves a highly trained orthopedic physician using guided ultrasound to perform a needle aspiration of your own adult stem cells. They are usually taken from the hip. The cell tissues are concentrated in a stem cell centrifuge and then injected into the injured area of the knee. It is similar to a cortisone injection. See our Frequently Asked Questions section for more specifics.
There are several different kinds of stem cells.
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are the type that we use in orthopedic treatments.
