knee pain

chronic knee-cap pain

Doug. 54 yrs.   Poor guy, he's in his 50's and excited about the recent snow in the mountains and getting excited about skiing at Steven's Pass.  Started doing some leg exercises and strength training and started getting really severe knee pain under the knee cap.  That was 2 weeks ago and not improving.  Admits he's had knee pain off and on for years but never this bad.

This side view of the knee cap revealed a dark line and a pointy part at the top of the cap.  Do you see it?  This is the beginning of advancing OA of the patellofemeral joint (the space under the knee cap)  What to do?  Stem cell injections of the space under the joint has been extremely well tolerated, and mostly painless procedure that will allow him to gradually over 5 months, regenerate his own knee.  He agreed with the procedure and we're scheduling him for Amniocyte injection next week.  Will keep you posted on Doug's results. :)

osteoarthritis of the knees

Had a consultation today with Robert (great name) a 75 yr old gentleman with moderate to severe degenerated knees.  You can view the x-ray below.  So, what's the recommendation?

Because he's also having a variety of health issues, we discussed the benefits of adipose derived stem cell with the added benefit of an IV of his own stem cells infused through the circulation following his knee injections.  He agreed and wanted to move forward.  Will let you know his results in 8 weeks following the procedure. 

Stay tuned!
