The knee joints are susceptible to injury and degenerative disease, causing pain and limiting mobility. Regenerative treatments can be an effective option for stimulating tissue repair and reducing inflammation in the knees to reduce pain and improve performance. Dr. Steven Struhl and our team at Regenerative Orthopaedics offer advanced regenerative options in treating painful conditions. We provide effective stem cell therapy for knee pain at our clinics in NYC and White Plains.
Stem cells can have a rejuvenating effect on damaged tissue, reducing inflammation for improved healing. Stem cells are blank cells that can easily be converted to different types of tissue when introduced to an injured area. Stem cells are harvested from bone marrow and filtered through a centrifuge to concrete the stem cells and growth factors. Once sterilized, the stem cells can be injected into the knee joints or other areas to aid in tissue repair, reduce inflammation and minimize pain.
Regenerative Medicine for Knee Joints
For knee injuries and painful conditions, stem cell therapy can be an effective treatment option. Arthritis, ligament damage, cartilage loss and tendonitis in the knee joints can cause pain and limit function. Stem cell therapy is a safe treatment to stimulate repair and reduce inflammation, resulting in less pain. Stem cell therapy can be completed in a single office visit. We can harvest the stem cells from bone marrow and perform the knee pain treatment in less than an hour in most cases. Over the following weeks, the stem cells can have a healing response to relieve knee pain.
Stem cell therapy may be used as an alternative to cortisone shots or other treatments for knee pain. For some people with chronic knee pain, stem cell treatments can delay the need for knee replacement surgery.
