Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain

Where are YOU on the scale of joint deteriorization?

NeoGenix specializes in non-surgical knee arthritis treatment. Stem cell therapy is a natural treatment for knee arthritis. At NeoGenix, we almost always recommend a combined approach of high dose stem cells 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.

NeoGenix is also founded by one of the most experienced knee injury treatment doctors in Charlotte, NC, Dr. James Altizer, who has been performing stem cell therapy in North Carolina since January of 2016. Dr. Altizer is an expert in stem cell therapy for joint pain. He has performed thousands of stem cell and growth factor procedures since January 2016, more than any other medical doctor in the Carolinas, with a patient success rate of over 94%*, with many results lasting for years.

NeoGenix uses stem cell therapy to treat a variety of knee injuries and conditions that cause knee pain.

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. So 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 are dissolved in tissue fluid that comes from the underlying bones. This circulation is enough to keep it alive, but is not adequate enough to repair the damage that occurs with trauma, repetitive use, and aging. 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.

knee arthritis treatment 1Grade 1 (doubtful): Possible joint space narrowing, also described as ‘doubtful’, with the possibility or ‘hint’ of abnormal bone spurs (called osteophytes) at the edges of the joint. This knee is essentially ‘almost but not quite’ normal.

NeoGenix Treatment Options:
Neogenix Gold

Grade 2 (mild): Definite osteophyte formation (presence of abnormal bone spurs near the joint) and/or some loss of joint space, indicating a small amount of cartilage loss, usually less than 50% of the total cartilage thickness. This is proof positive that the arthritic process has already started. The patient may have pain after working in the yard, running, playing a sport and may even have to take an occasional dose of pain medication. We believe studies will eventually prove that getting stem cell therapy at very early stages of arthritis will SLOW DOWN the progression of the disease and actually prevent some patients from ever needing joint replacement surgery.

NeoGenix Premier

Grade 3 (moderate): Moderate osteophyte formation (obvious abnormal bone spurs that are easy to see…even to a layperson!) with loss of more than 50% of the total thickness of joint cartilage. The joint is obviously abnormal…the bones are much closer together than they are supposed to be, because the cartilage has worn away. Cartilage shows up as ’empty space’ on an x ray, so when cartilage is missing, the bones appear closer together because there is less cartilage in between them. This is a very serious degree of arthritis and indicates that something must be done immediately to slow down the progression of the disease before the joint is permanently damaged beyond repair. The patient usually has trouble walking and climbing upstairs, may use a cane or an off the shelf knee brace occasionally and most likely will be taking pain medication frequently. If the disease is not slowed down or stopped, progression to the next stage is inevitable.

Grade 4 (severe): This is the so-called ‘bone on bone’ stage of arthritis. (Note: we have seen many patients over the years that tell us: “The other doctor told me I was bone on bone.” In fact, when we looked at their x rays in many cases the severity of their arthritis had been greatly exaggerated.) In a real bone on bone case, the x ray looks like almost all of the cartilage is missing from the part of the joint where the pain is coming from. Large bone spurs may be present. The patient’s gait, or how they walk, is affected because the joint is so worn out on one side it causes the patient to either be knock kneed or less commonly…bow legged. The patient usually has severe, lifestyle limiting pain, and is almost to invalid stage. They can’t do anything without pain, will often have pain sitting still or pain that wakes them up at night and mostly likely the are taking pain medication all the time with minimal relief.

In the past, the only remedy for a worn-out knee joint was an invasive surgical joint replacement that carried with it potential for life threatening complications. But stem cell therapy for joint pain has changed all that. It has and will revolutionize the treatment of knee arthritis. NeoGenix specializes in non-surgical knee arthritis treatment.

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 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.

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.
