We’ve been treating knees with stem cells for 6 years, so we have more knowledge about where they work and don’t work than any other clinic in the United States. We’ve seen many clinics popping up using adipose derived stem cells (which the research shows aren’t as effective as bone marrow cells for orthopedics) and have observed that many of these clinics are misleading patients with magical claims of effiicacy not based on any data they’ve collected nor that has been published, but simply based on what they’ve been told by the company selling them the adipose processing kit. Over the weekend, I picked up this post on the KneeGeeks site that I think very nicely sums up our approach. We always provide our patients with an honest upfront opinion of whether they’re a GOOD, FAIR, or POOR candidate for a stem cell based injection procedure. The vast majority of patients we speak to are placed into the FAIR or POOR categories based on the severity of their disease, our clinical experience, and our published data. If you have severe knee arthritis and are seeking a stem cell knee arthritis treatment and find your self being told that you’re an excellent candidate for stem cell injections, take a minute to read our top 10 questions to ask about orthopedic stem cell therapy.
