stem cell alternative to hip replacement

Posted by rick4rj @rick4rj, Wed, Feb 13 6:15pm

has anyone had any experience with stem cells?

when i was doing stem cells for knee and back my good friend was having his hip done. It was successful. Regennexx told him they had a 50% success rate with it.

Hi @rick4rj – Welcome to Connect! It's a great group of caring people here. I haven't had to deal with hip replacement issues – my knees are my weakness. And I just had my second TKR two weeks ago. Also, I haven't had experience with stem cells although an acquaintance of mine did and she seemed guardedly optimistic the last time we spoke. If I could ask a little more about your background, are you in a lot of pain? Is your orthopedist recommending hip replacement? There is a thread on stem cells that might interest you at this address. It's focused on rotator cuffs but still lots of good information:
