Severe arthritis in hip - are stem cells an option?
I'm active 43 y.o. male. I was diagnosed with labrum tear in my right hip about 3 years ago, and moderate arthritis was already present in the hip at that time, along with FAI. My hip condition has deteriorated over time and arthritis progressed to severe (moderately severe as one of the sports doctors classified it) and hip replacement was the only recommended procedure at this point…
I'm healthy and fit otherwise, and I was wondering if stem cell injections would be a viable option to try for me, before committing to THR surgery.
I've just found out that Mayo offers stem cell therapy (which gives me higher confidence in the quality of the procedure), however, I'm wondering if someone had a first-hand experience of stem cell injection into hip for advanced arthritis.
