Knee Problems

Dr. Lox | www.drlox.com | 844-440-8503

Knees are common joints for stem cell repair, therefore, we often see knee pain treated with stem cell therapy. Knees are commonly injured and are frequently operated on, and often develop osteoarthritis. Many savvy patients are looking for alternatives to knee joint replacement. Those who do their homework often find Regenerative Medicine strategies such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy as viable alternatives to surgery. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy, are Regenerative Medicine procedures that are being increasingly viewed as a reasonable and viable alternative to knee surgery. Whether it is a partial meniscetomy to a complete total knee replacement, patients are becoming their own advocates and are telling their healthcare providers that they want to keep their “original parts” and making serious inquiries into how that can happen for them.

You see, most patients with knee problems have had previous trauma, especially athletes. Correcting the injury with surgery becomes the second trauma (or 3 or 9th) to the joint. Studies since the 1940s have shown that knee surgery propels osteoarthritis. More recent studies have shown, even a partial meniscectomy, will accelerate the development of osteoarthritis. So the interest in Regenerative Medicine has escalated. Knee PRP has been done on elite athletes such as Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, Rafael Nadal, and even the last Pope. Dr. Dennis Lox has treated professional athletes, weekend warriors, and the elderly with osteoarthritis who just want to remain functional with less pain. Dr. Lox understands each patient has their own unique goal. Achieving that goal is success.
