To sturgeon– This information is so helpful to me and helping me to zero in on a procedure other than knee replacement. Now I will look to find a doctor in my area in North Jersey who will do this procedure. Thank you.

I'm eager to learn about PRP– exactly where does this procedure all start. Again, I'm trying to avoid knee replacement on both knees. I am 79 and do not want this surgery. Looking forward to hear back. Thank you all for your input.
Could you give me more information about "baby stem cells" procedure that you had? I've heard of many people who have had bad results from knee replacement and, to be honest, I am scared to have it done at my age of 79. If you could tell me what you had to do about the procedure and where you had it done. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Following is what I posted March of last year– I hope thIs helps. I forgot to put in my original post that I also used a compound RX which contained hyloronic acid (not sure of spelling). I am happy that this condition is now under control.
Lichen Sclerosus is now under control after years of doctoring but finally finding Dr. Nyirjesy from Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA who I’ve been with about four years.
My symptoms were extreme itching and burning constantly everyday. I would come home from work and get in a hot bath hoping it would take away the burning and itching. These symptoms were very bad. I went to many doctors over the years and took many medications– to no avail. Nothing seemed to work.
I am now using Betamethasone (gel to apply externally), Vagifem (insert vaginally)– both twice a week. Amitriptyline (10mg daily) which is for depression but it was learned that it helps with Lichen Sclerosus but now I will be weaned off of it since my symptoms are under control.
Lichen Sclerosis is an autoimmune condition. I once used Clobetasol for a week or so but did not work for me. I now use Betamethasone DP AUG 0.05% and Vagifem 10 MCG– twice a week. It took a few months to get it to where it came under control. Also, Amitripline 10mg every day. Amitripline is used for depression but it was learned that it helped with LS.
I have vaginal Lichen Scelrosis. I went to many doctors through the years who did not help me. I finally found Dr.Nyirjesy in Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia PA who got my Lichen Sclerosis under control after a few months. It can be on other parts of the body but not in my case. There were no over the counter creams, etc but none worked for me.
