Considering Stem Cell Therapy for both knees and one hip
Hi @hillcountrylady – Welcome to Connect! Glad you joined this group. I'm going to share a link that @johnbishop posted recently. Thanks, John! (I don't know how to forward it so I'll just cut/paste here!)
Stem Cells Get Hip
Have you decided on whether you want to do the next hip yet or knees?

Thanks Debbra, Saw my local ortho yesterday. Hip is not a candidate for stem cell, no joint space. Both knees are as I still have joint space. I will move forward with hip surgery (total hip, anterior approach) and will go for stem cell treatment on my knees in about 6 months, depending on my rehab from my hip sx. So I'm at least moving forward and am happy that my knees still have joint space – learning a new language it seems. Thanks to all for your kind assistance.
