@kdukes52, there are several discussions about stem cell therapy in the Bones, Joints & Muscles group. Here are a few you may wish to review:

– Stem Cell Therapy for Rotator Cuff Tears https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/stem-cell-therapy-for-rotator-cuff-tears/
– Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritic Knees https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/stem-cell-therapy-for-arthritic-knees/
– Has anyone used PRP or Stem Cell Therapy to fix cervical discs https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/has-anyone-used-prp-or-stem-cell-therapy-to-fix-cervical-discs/

While these discussions are not specific to regenerative medicine for the hip, I think you'll find a lot of relevant and related information. I'm also tagging fellow members @gailb @cobweb and @winning to join this discussion.

It is so important to do your homework and due diligence when researching new treatment options. Stem cells offer a lot of hope. But where these is hope, there is hype and charlatans as this FDA warning illustrates:
– FDA acts to remove unproven, potentially harmful treatment used in ‘stem cell’ centers targeting vulnerable patients https://www.fda.gov/newsevents/newsroom/pressannouncements/ucm573427.htm

You can read more about stem cells on the FDA’s website here: https://www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/Transparency/Basics/ucm194655.htm

Another service I encourage you to take advantage of is Mayo Clinic’s Regenerative Medicine free Consult Service. If you call them, you will talk to a live person who will provide more information, research, and advice on seeking stem cell therapy from reputable providers, even if that provider is not Mayo Clinic. Their primary goal is to educate and help you find effective treatment.

Furthermore, you can add your name to a database to be notified when additional studies and information become available. Here’s more information about the stem cell Consult Service http://www.mayo.edu/research/centers-programs/center-regenerative-medicine/patient-care/clinical-services/regenerative-medicine-consult-service. Or simply call 1-844-276-2003 to speak with one of our experts.

Phew, that's a long-winded response to your simple question Kdukes. Are you considering a hip replacement?

Thank you…I will call the consult service tomorrow

Coleen, I clicked on You can read more about stem cells on the FDA’s website here: https://www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/Transparency/Basics/ucm194655.htm and it says, "Page Not Found."

Hip and leg pain since october 2017, had steroid injection recently, did NOT help, at Emory, hoping to have stem cell at Emory, but even without MRI, MD stated I was not eligible for same?? No other explanation. I want to pursue stem cell, as I was working every day, now can not, am healthy am 70 years old, but not even near ready to be sidelined. NO, I will NOT have hip replacement, I have seen that, (am RN), there have to be other options. thanks for your time. I live in atlanta ga, but can travel to jacksonville FLA

I have been told steroids kill off stem cells. Once i began stem cells in back and knee pain went away. My friend had stem cells on both sides of his hip and it worked but the research shows a 50-50 success rate. Good luck in your search. Make sure they have a good reputation like Mayo or Regenexx that i used.

Very interested in stem cell!!

I was told that a hip replace.e t is needed. However, I would definitely do the stem cell regenerative if possible, at Mayo Clinic. Please send info. Thank you.
