Did you know that recent advancements in medical technology could help you delay or avoid knee replacement surgery altogether? If you are continually suffering from knee pain, and you have difficulty getting up or sitting down, you should come to see the doctor at our regenerative medicine practice in Tarpon Springs, Florida.
With regenerative medicine, we treat all kinds of knee pain, conditions, and injuries, such as:
- Osteoarthritis of the knee
- Inflammation and swelling
- Cartilage damage
- Knee sprains
- Knee dislocation
- Ruptured or torn ligaments, such as an ACL or meniscus tear
Stem Cells for Knees
Regenerative medicine is modern medicine that stimulates natural healing and can reduce inflammation and promote regeneration of damaged tissue and cartilage.
Regenerative medicine can potentially treat the root cause of your knee problems so that you can get back to doing the things you love. By working with the body’s biology (instead of trying to replace anatomy through knee surgery), patients are receiving significant knee pain relief. Our regenerative medicine involves both injections of stem cells and platelet-rich plasma.
Other advantages of regenerative medicine include:
- No surgical complications
- No expensive, lengthy hospital stay
- No recovery time
- Treatments are conducted in the office as an outpatient procedure
- Targeted treatment at the painful joint
- No adjustments to your daily routine
Treatments with stem cells and growth factors are a safe, non-surgical pain management solution that is helping patients in Tarpon Springs avoid the knife.
Why elect to undergo the risk of surgery when growth factors and Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells can be administered directly at the site of your pain. Upon injection, stem cells divide and differentiate to turn into the cells needed for the regeneration of tissues like ligaments, cartilage, tendons, and more.
Stem cells rebuild your weakened knees to increase strength and mobility through all-natural methods.
Your Regenerative Medicine Treatment Can Also Involve PRP
You shouldn’t allow knee pain to keep you away from enjoying the activities you love doing. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection therapy is a promising regenerative treatment increasingly being used to treat chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
PRP therapy works by isolating healing components in your blood sample called platelets, concentrating them, and reapplying them to damaged tissues. Platelets are active parts of your typical healing process, so increasing the number of them available to your knee can truly amplify your healing ability. This influx speeds up healing and allows the process to happen more effectively too.
Benefits of this form of therapy for anyone suffering from knee problems include:
- Pain relief and healing without surgery
- Faster recovery time
- Easy, virtually non-invasive procedure
- No risk of donor-derived tissue rejection
Many Floridians are affected by knee pain, and some doctors are recommending surgery as the only way to relieve knee pain, but recent developments in regenerative have diversified your options.
