Hello @ro_bro and @mlerickson01. Here is a conversation titled "Stem Cell Therapy for Hip," that you may find worth your time reading through, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/stem-cell-therapy-for-hip/. In that conversation, I posted a few times about the information that Mayo Clinic has to offer on stem cell treatments for hips and knees and how to contact them.

@ro_bro, if you don't mind sharing, have you asked your provider about stem cell treatments? I had to have my knee replaced many years ago due to severe arthritis and the deterioration of my joint structure because of it. I am not a medical professional, but I would guess that it depends on how much structural damage there is.

Thanks for the link, Justin. Yes, I asked several surgeons about alternative treatments, including regenerative therapy. But, I'm under impression that most doctors just dismiss stem cells as an option completely, due to the luck of evidence that it works (which might be fair).
