Things to Know about Stem Cells For Knees

Scott Brandt, M.D. Stem Cells for Knee

Stem cell therapy is a safe, effective treatment option for many patients with knee pain and/or deterioration of the knee joint. Unlike many other possible treatments, using stem cells for the treatment of knee pain is the only way to potentially rebuild damaged knee tissue. While medication, physical conditioning and surgery can possibly reduce a patient’s symptoms, stem cell therapy has been shown to be the only option actually capable of initiating an immune response within the body that can reduce inflammation and stimulate new cell growth. The result: stem ...

Does Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain Have a Long Recovery Time?

Scott Brandt, M.D. Stem Cell Therapy, Stem Cells for Knee

Knee pain is a common problem, affecting anyone at any stage of his or her life. Typical contributors to knee pain include aging, injury and repetitive movements that put stress on the knee joint. While not exactly life-threatening, knee pain can be life-altering, precipitating a loss of mobility that changes the way people live and work. Pain medication and other traditional treatments can only provide relief to a certain point, either masking symptoms or strengthening surrounding muscles but never actually addressing the cause of the pain itself.

Stem Cell Therapy for Meniscus Tear

Scott Brandt, M.D. Stem Cell Therapy, Stem Cells for Knee

A meniscus is a c-shaped piece of cartilage in the knee that acts as a shock absorber between the lower leg bone (tibia) and the thigh bone (femur). There are two menisci in each knee, which, together, work to cushion the weight of our bodies as we move. Indeed, the support that meniscal tissue provides the knee joint is so vital that any trauma to or degenerative changes within a meniscus can prove catastrophic for the people experiencing it. Compounding the problem, many doctors elect to remove the meniscus in ...

The spine is an important part of the body. It is divided into three major sections — the cervical spine (within the neck); the thoracic spine (within the ribcage); and the lumbar spine (also known as the “lower back”) — and consists of individual sections of bone called vertebrae that are separated by a shock-absorbing disc. Alternating vertebrae and discs run the length of the spine, with each disc cushioning the constant pressure of the body’s weight; enabling range of motion; and protecting the spinal cord.

Knee pain from osteoarthritis affects millions of people, and it remains a major cause of disability and missed work days in the U.S. Unfortunately, traditional medical methods for relieving knee pain from osteoarthritis are often ineffective or undesirable. For example, pain-relief treatments like physical therapy or anti-inflammatory medications often fail to adequately address the source of knee pain. And invasive surgeries like arthroscopies or subchondral bone drillings often cause serious side effects like further discomfort or loss of motion. The good news is that stem cell therapy offers individuals with ...

We have all heard of that all too familiar story of the epic powder day that’s ruined when a ski gets turned the wrong way, and the skier feels a pop in their knee followed by pain, swelling and a toboggan ride down to the nearest MRI scanner.
