Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritic Knees
I am a 77 year old woman with arthritic knees where it’s difficult for me to walk and I’m trying to avoid knee replacement. I have done the Synvisc injections and physical therapy– to no avail. Is there anyone here who has had stem cell therapy for arthritic knees and I would like to know your outcome. I know there are two, one where bone marrow is removed and the other where they take fat from the abdomen and regenerate and inject into the knees. I would like to know the cost and how long the procedure takes and any other information which would be helpful to me. I live in North Jersey and am currently looking for clinics in my area who perform this procedure. I appreciate your help.

John, I forgot to mention that I looked at your article from Mayo Clinic and I will review it more indepth. I appreciate this lead.
Since it’s not stem cell what is PRP?

Hi, thank you for your response! My right knee is so bad, I actually gasp
with a shock-like pain at times because it’s so unexpectedly. We have 13
stairs going up to our bedrooms. And as you probably know, stairs are
I had laparoscopic surgery on my left knee in 2002 fr a torn meniscus. It
worked out very well for years, of course I’ve much older, do the pain has
returned somewhat and now I am going to have my right knee x-rayed, it’s
like electrical shocks when I walk, the pain just grabs me. I wondered
what PRP was also and if it would help me.
I had a hemorrhagic stroke 20 years ago in my right thalamus that has left
me with a horrific 24/7 pain condition, oh the pain is terrible! the few
medications I have do not help much but I’m thankful to have them. Then
Because of a 90 percent blockage had a stent inserted in my right coronary
artery and then Scoliosis surgery from my T3 to my L4-5 and into my hips.
I’m s walking scrap metal- pain from that surgery 9 years ago is another
whammy to live with…..so I’m a walking robot in pain…..lol. My best to you
and hope you’re doing well. Sandy
