You may be wondering how stem cells can help your knee pain or osteoarthritis. At US Stemology and Seattle Stem Cell Center, one of our focuses is utilizing your own stem cells to cure your osteoarthritis. People are often told they will need a knee replacement or surgery to help with any issues regarding their knees. However, we have found a way that doesn’t require any invasive surgery. Using a holistic approach, we find that using your own stem cells for knees combined with a healthy diet, an evaluation of hormones and an anti-inflammatory programme is the most beneficial for you.
Osteoarthritis is one of the most common degenerative disorders that causes deterioration of knee joint cartilage. This can happen due to previous knee injuries such as fractures, tendon tears, or ligament tears or just wear and tear from living upright in a gravity filled world. Osteoarthritis of the knees currently affects more than 30 million Americans and is one of the main causes for disability and missed work days. Whether you struggle with arthritis in your knee or require knee surgery, we want to tell you why your stem cells are the best option for your knees.
Most treatments for osteoarthritis in the knee will involve surgery, therapy, and/or opioid and anti-inflammatory medications. However, injecting mesenchymal stem cells into the knee has proven to help repair the deterioration of knee cartilage, build new cartilage and reduce and sometimes completely resolve pain. At US Steomology and Seattle Stem Cell Center we use mesenchymal stem cells, cells found in fat, as we find those to be the most beneficial and they are in abundant supply compared to the same cells found in bone marrow. The use of mesenchymal stem cells for knees has not only helped with the deterioration of knee cartilage, but also the inflammation caused by arthritis. These cells have been shown to treat various bone and cartilage diseases.
Our stem cell treatment involves a quick 15-30-minute micro liposuction procedure. After this procedure, we prepare and concentrate your cells to re-enter your body through an IV and into the knee. Using your own mesenchymal stem cells from fat in the body enables us to treat your pain without any harmful chemicals, foreign cells or invasive surgery. We choose to work with your own stem cells because your body reacts best with itself.
Injecting the knees with stem cells from your own body has proven to many of our patients that it is minimally invasive and an exceptional alternative to surgery. By using an IV to inject the body with your own stem cells these cells work to treat the overall inflammation and the source of pain in the knee. Over a period of months and a few treatments, you will be able to feel the difference in your knees!
