The knee is the largest joint in the body and therefore, can suffer from a range of injuries both traumatic and inflammatory. Knee pain treatment includes stem cell therapy, Lipogems® adipose tissue transfer and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment.
The most common knee injuries include fractures, dislocations and sprains and tears of soft tissues such as ligaments. Knee pain can also be caused by arthritis. Osteoarthritis which is also called degenerative arthritis is the most common type of arthritis and occurs when the cartilage in the knee deteriorates with use and age.
Treatment for knee conditions such as osteoarthritis is usually initially aimed at relieving the pain and involves anti-inflammatory medicines and physiotherapy. This may be followed by a series of corticosteroid injections. The next step may be an arthroscopy, and if the condition continues, you may require knee replacement surgery.
Lipogems® adipose tissue transfer, and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment can delay or avoid the need for knee surgery. The treatments are minimally invasive, can decrease inflammation, stop the progression of arthritic damage and repair joint cartilage. The recovery time is also much shorter than with surgery.
Knee conditions which can be treated with Lipogems® and PRP therapy include:
Stem cells are simply your own body cells that can renew themselves and turn into other cells (differentiate). They live inside all of us in various tissues; their job is to repair damage as it occurs. We all know when we have a cut or injury our body repairs itself. As we age or experience big injuries, we may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to fully repair the area.
Our Advanced Platelet Procedures for knee pain treatment are more pure and concentrated than those created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis and spine conditions.
Our expert team of knee pain doctors works as part of a collaborative partnership of Surgeons, Sports Medicine doctors and Physiotherapists to provide the perfect patient pathway to get you quickly on the road to recovery. Whether you require conventional treatment or if you are a candidate for these new regenerative treatments, you can be sure that will get the best advice from teaching hospital specialists.
