What if you could avoid knee replacement surgery and eliminate pain? Knee pain is most commonly caused by wear and tear and injuries from physical activity. Your doctor will often suggest invasive knee replacement surgery or knee arthroscopy resolve chronic knee pain, but there are effective alternatives.
Alternatives to Knee Surgery
Regenerative medicine is increasingly used to resolve acute and chronic knee pain, instead of knee replacement surgery. The traditional approach to addressing knee pain was surgery, but today, cutting-edge regenerative medicine treatments are available and effective.
Regenerative medicine procedures help you regenerate cartilage, muscle, and tendons to reduce pain and inflammation, restoring your healthy knee joints. Regenerative medicine gives your body the boost it needs to repair and rebuild damaged or injured tissue. These innovative medical procedures help you to reduce pain and return mobility in the knee without surgery or invasive techniques.
Stem Cells for Knees
Most people want to avoid the surgical route of repairing a damaged knee. Wharton's jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cell injections, available at our clinic in High Point North Carolina, may give you the relief you need.
Stem cells are particular types of cells known for their ability to multiply and self-renew. These cells also have the potential to replicate into specialized cell types to become cartilage, muscle, nerves, or other tissues. When we administer treatments containing mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors to your knee joint, the stem cells divide, duplicate themselves, and develop into different types of cells to repair the damage.
Our stem cells injections come from healthy human sources, and it is an outpatient procedure. You can be in and out of the office and back to your schedule quickly.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Your Sore Knees
Platelets are fragments of cells in your blood and best known for their ability to help the blood clot. What's even more remarkable about platelets is that they contain growth factors, collagen, and peptides that support healing.
Platelet-rich plasma is medically processed by using a simple but effective procedure that separates the platelets from the plasma, the liquid part of the blood. We take a blood sample and centrifuge it to make your injections of PRP. We want to get as many platelets as we can to your knees so that you can receive the healing boost your body desperately needs.
Platelet-rich plasma may be particularly helpful for those who have had no success with others knee pain treatments and are hoping to avoid or delay surgery. The injections come from your blood, so it is highly unlikely that you will have any adverse reaction. The shots are performed in-office in less than an hour.
If you have been told that knee surgery or meniscus surgery is your only option for pain relief, it doesn't hurt to explore your options for all-natural relief and healing.
