Surgery is not the only option to get treated for severe knee pain. Stem cell therapy is a new innovation for treatment of knee problems. Stem cell therapy is a same-day procedure where stem cells are harvested and re-injected into the knees on the same day. For most patients the complete procedure is a series of stem cell injections that happen over the course of about a week, depending on each patient’s situation.
Stem cells are the building blocks of our body. Our stem cells can be found in our bone marrow, blood, and adipose tissues. The adipose tissues come from the same family of cells that form joints, muscles, and bone. These stem cells can be used to repair our body parts if needed.
