Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain

 

NeoGenix Specializes in Non-Surgical Knee Pain Treatment

Stem cell therapy is a natural, non-surgical alternative treatment for knee pain relief from arthritis and chronic knee cartilage degeneration. We also commonly treat acute conditions resulting from recent soft tissue injuries, such as meniscus or ACL tears.

Why are people choosing stem cell therapy over surgery?

  • Quicker and easier recovery with no downtime
  • Out-patient procedure with a local anesthetic only
  • Complications are extremely unlikely

What is Stem Cell Treatment for Knee Pain?

Stem cell therapy is a natural treatment for knee injuries and conditions that cause knee pain. Stem cell therapy triggers cartilage repair in the knee and starts relieving the debilitating symptoms, such as pain, stiffness, or immobility. 

At NeoGenix, we typically recommend a combined approach of high-dose stem cells (from bone marrow aspirate and adipose tissue) with collagen-based matrix – or scaffolding – because knee injury treatment requires an aggressive approach to prevent it from worsening. 

Scaffolding is like the steel framework of a high-rise building. The entire structure depends on a strong framework to work properly, and stem cell treatment for knee pain is a good example of this. The collagen in fat tissue serves as the framework in which the stem cells live and work. This allows the stem cells to incorporate themselves into the surrounding tissues more efficiently. 

Milder cases can be treated with just growth factors from Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).

Is Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain Effective?

Many patients find relief from pain and stiffness caused by knee injuries or osteoarthritis with stem cell treatments. There have been many research studies demonstrating significant improvement in knee pain and cartilage quality following stem cell therapy and numerous ongoing studies continuing to evaluate the benefits.

Patients that have received stem cell therapy at NeoGenix have reported:

  • Less pain from osteoarthritis or past injuries
  • Reduced knee stiffness
  • Reduced dependency on pain medications
  • Improved knee mobility and range of motion

NeoGenix is also founded by one of the most experienced stem cell treatment doctors in Charlotte, NC, Dr. James Altizer, who has been performing therapeutic procedures in North Carolina since January of 2016. Dr. Altizer received expert training from recognized leaders in the regenerative medicine field, including training on bone marrow aspiration with Duke University-affiliated physicians. He has performed thousands of stem cell and growth factor procedures, more than any other medical doctor in the Carolinas.

NeoGenix has a patient success rate of over 94%* with many results lasting for years.

An Alternative to Knee Replacement Surgery

So over time and after trauma, our joint cartilage starts to wear out, sometimes slowly over years and sometimes very quickly over a few months. The only alternative to invasive surgery is stem cell therapy. Do not agree to surgery until you’ve got a second opinion to see whether or not stem cell therapy can help. The less invasive treatment is, the easier and more successful your recovery will be.

Many patients who have undergone stem cell treatments for knee pain and acute knee injuries have found this minimally invasive procedure to be an excellent alternative to total knee replacement, arthroscopic surgery, or meniscus surgery.

Stem Cell Therapy for Osteoarthritis(Degenerative Joint Disease)

Osteoarthritis is a chronic degenerative, progressive disease resulting in cartilage degeneration, osteophytes, and loss of joint function. Why doesn’t cartilage in knee joints self-repair similar to a cut on your hand or a broken bone? Why can’t our body repair damaged knee cartilage before it gets thinner and thinner, eventually leading to denuded areas of bone on bone arthritis?

The simple reason is that knee joints do not have adequate circulation. There is no artery inside any joint. Cartilage gets oxygen and nutrients that diffuse or dissolve tissue fluid from the underlying bones. This circulation is enough to keep it alive but is not adequate to repair the damage with trauma, repetitive use, and aging. Over time and after trauma, our joint cartilage starts to wear out, sometimes slowly over the years and sometimes very quickly over a few months.

Stem Cell Therapy for Meniscus Tears and Sprains

The meniscus is one of the most susceptible areas of the knee to degeneration and tearing. Surgeries and arthroscopic procedures are very common treatments for meniscus tears, however, the verdict is in. Medical studies have now proven beyond any doubt that most surgeries and arthroscopic procedures for meniscus problems are absolutely no better than conservative, non-operative treatment. Yet meniscus surgery continues to be one of the most frequently performed surgeries in the country. Why? Because it’s lucrative for the doctor and insurance companies pay for it. Stem cell therapy for a torn meniscus can be just as beneficial with none of the risk, expense, prolonged recovery, and morbidity of a surgical procedure.

Stem Cell Therapy for Ligament Tears and Strains

Stem Cell Therapy for ACL Tears and Strains
Stem Cell Therapy for PCL Tears and Strains
Stem Cell Therapy for LCL Tears and Strains
Stem Cell Therapy for MCL Tears and Strains

Stem cell therapy has proven to be so successful for ligament damage in knees, that many professional athletes have now chosen it as their standard of care for knee injury treatment. One thing to be aware of is most people who undergo surgery for knee ligament tears go on to develop arthritis in that same knee years later, so avoiding surgery is important if possible. An MRI or ultrasound exam will provide a good prognostic indicator to determine the severity of the ligament tear or strain.

Stem Cell Therapy for Patellar Tendon Tears and Strains

So called ‘Jumper’s Knee’ results from repeated high impact stress on the patellar tendon. Stem cell therapy has been proven to heal tears and sprains in this tendon, allowing patients to resume their previous level of activity. The recovery is quick and the treatment is safer than cortisone shots.
