“That was four years ago, and I am pain-free. It is an absolute miracle to me, and I tell everybody about this, and I hope everybody has the same results I do.”

A common question we are asked is, “How long does a regenerative or stem cell treatment last?” With any medical treatment, results will vary. One of our patients, Barb, recently shared that she has been pain-free for over four years since her treatment.

Before treatment, Barb was experiencing chronic pain in her knee. Her medical doctor was telling her that she needed knee replacement. She decided to explore alternative treatments to knee replacement surgery.

After a thorough examination of her knee, it was determined that a regenerative treatment was a viable option for Barb.

Medicare and other major insurance plans now cover regenerative treatments that we, at Renew Medical Centers, provide.

In this video, Barb discusses her story and how she’s doing four years after her regenerative stem cell treatment.

Dr. Baker (Dr): Good morning, everybody. I’m here with Barb Robinette and she got her stem cells four years ago last Thanksgiving. So, Barb, tell us how your knee was before and tell us the side benefits of your stem cell procedure.

Barb (B): I could no longer go up and down the stairs. Normally, I had to go up and down one foot at a time because my knee hurt me so bad and my medical doctor kept saying, “You need knee replacement. You need knee replacement.”

And Patrick said to me, “Hang on. Hang on. I have something coming up and I know you’ll love this.” So, I hung on for about two years till this was perfected. Dr. Jeremy gave me one injection in my knee which was just a little tiny prick and about three days later I thought maybe I can try to walk up these stairs. And I walked halfway up them normal, like a normal human being, and the next morning, I went I’m going to come down and I came down normally.

And I came over to Patrick’s office and I went, “Patrick, guess what, guess what. I’m walking up and down the steps.” And he went, “Not already!” And I went, “Yes, I am. Yes, I am.”

And so, I noticed now my right hip. I fell in 1981, 15 feet to the ground, and landed on top of my head and jammed my whole spine down inside my body, lost the use of my left arm. This big joint in my hip hurt me night and day from that point forth. And about a week later, I went, “I don’t think that’s hurting as much as it did.” It became a way of life with me. It controlled my life. I would have to go home and sit down after work.

And I came over to Patrick’s office the next week and I went, “You know what? My hip’s feeling better.” And he went, “That’s wishful thinking. I don’t think it could work that fast.” And I went, ”Yeah, I think it is.” And so, the next week I came back again, and I went, “Patrick, this is feeling way better.” And he went, “Are you…” He doesn’t exactly believe me. I could tell by the look on his face.

And I came back the next week, which was the third week after I got the injection in my knee, and I said, “My hip’s not hurting me.”

That was four years ago, Thanksgiving, and I am pain-free. It is an absolute miracle to me, and I tell everybody about this, and I hope everybody has the same results I do.

Dr: Awesome. Thank you so much, Barb.

Regenerative treatment is a viable alternative for addressing problems that cause chronic knee pain.

Along with surgery, the traditional medical treatments for knee pain have been physical therapy, exercise, pain medications, anti-inflammatories, and steroid injections. These will sometimes alleviate pain but are often ineffective at addressing the actual condition.

Regenerative cell therapy involves an injection that facilitates your body in healing itself, using naturally occurring cells, and growth factors. Treatment assists your body in regenerating tissue, reducing pain, and reducing inflammation in damaged muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bone.

Regenerative therapy is a low risk, viable alternative to surgery. As discussed, it is a completely different approach to treating chronic knee pain.

Medicare and other major insurance plans now cover regenerative treatments that we, at Renew Medical Centers, provide.

As opposed to going under the knife and replacing the knee with a metal knee or addressing tendon and ligament tears with surgery, regenerative treatment gives the patient an opportunity for their body to heal degenerated and injured tissue.

With any medical treatment, there are no guarantees that it will or will not work for a patient. Each patient’s condition is unique. There are some cases where a patient will not be a candidate for regenerative treatment.

With Barb, she is still pain-free four years after treatment.

Other than the knee, areas treated also include back/spine, neck, hips, shoulders, hands and wrists, feet and ankles, and more.
