Stem Cell Knee Injections: What to expect?

A stem cell knee injection is a regenerative medicine method that nurtures the cartilage with stimulant factors, growth factors and most important special cells, with the capacity of duplication and differentiation into cartilage. This is a low invasive and autologous procedure, which means the infused stem cells come from your own bone marrow, this can be  a better, faster and long term solution to your problem (compared to other techniques such as surgery or PRP). The purpose of stem cell therapy is to help repair damaged tissue, improve organs function and stop the progress of the base illness. In this specific Knee procedure the stem cells are taken from the bone marrow by aspiration. Immediately after, the whole sample containing not only the stem cells, but also growth and stimulant factors, is administered in the area of interest. We recommend performing this direct knee injection at least 2 to 3 times, one every six months or every year to maximize the results of the treatment.

Is there any preparation prior to this treatment? Yes! Here are some recommendations to follow:

  • Eat healthy.
  • Days prior to your treatment, avoid practicing sports with possibilities of injury such as skiing, full contact sports, boxing or any extreme sport.
  • Don’t smoke or drink alcohol.
  • Avoid: Red and pork meat, Shellfish, Irritant agents like Vinegar, hot chili, greasy food, fat, etc.
  • Drink at least 2 Lt. of water 24 hours prior to the procedure.

 …But, How long does stem cell therapy last for knees? The procedure is done in about 1 hour, the benefits of stem cell knee injection start appearing within 6-8 weeks after the treatment, after this period of time patients have reported knee pain being gradually reduced, more flexibility, and ease on their daily chores.  No side effects (only skin redness/bruising  and temporary inflammation that disappear in  a few days). In the long run, patients can avoid knee replacement in best cases,  and pushing knee replacement for a few years in worst cases. Based on what we’ve observed from our own clinical work, ProgenCell patients report three to four years of benefit. The condition of the patient plays a big role in the benefit that the patient will notice but also the way that the stem cells are administered, both make a great deal of difference. A successful stem cell protocol can mean not having to take prescription medications anymore.

And you should also be wondering, what’s the cost of stem cell therapy for knees? Price is an important factor, being only a fraction of a surgery cost is worth exploring Stem Cell Therapy for Knees.
