Okay, it works... but will it last?

Great question! I get this one frequently and I too would like to know? So let's look at a typical case we see every day.   This elderly man had a badly arthritic knee and was beginning to lose balance because of it.  He was becoming fearful of falling and injuring himself further.  Take a look at the x ray below. On the left x ray film you'll see on the right side of the knee there is very little joint space left. 3 years later...

The x ray on the right is his 3 year follow up. Wow! So we can say with confidence that 3 years later it's still going to look good. There are some good preliminary studies as well that show after the first 6 months post injection, most the regenerating will be complete and the regeneration will maintain at 80% even 5 years later.  Not bad if you ask me.  That's the power of the body's ability to heal itself.  


It's a good time to be in regenerative medicine.  Make sure you look for our seminars in the Seattle area to learn more. 

Stay tuned for more...
