“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.
“I could not walk. I could not bend. I could not hardly get up out of the bed in the morning. Since I’ve had this injection, the pain has been minimalized – no pain at all. I’m able to go for simple walks. I’m able to walk on my treadmill. I get up out of the bed in the morning without any resistance, any pain.” When Rachel came to Renew Medical Centers, she said she was experiencing pain in her knee with levels as high as a nine on a scale of one to ten.
“The pain in my left knee was unbearable. The orthopedic doctor told me I needed surgery and I came here instead of surgery.” When Brenda came to Renew Medical Centers, she had tried many pain management shots. She had been told she needed surgery, but she decided surgery was her last option.
If you suffer from chronic knee pain and problems due to degeneration and/or injury, there are knee replacement surgery alternatives that may help you find the relief you need while avoiding surgery. While knee replacement surgery might be a solution for you if you suffer from knee problems, there are risks involved in undergoing the procedure.
The most common area of concern that patients come to us with is the knee. This is no surprise. The knee endures more stress than any other joint. Knee pain could be caused by general wear and tear over time, fracture, osteoarthritis, ACL and meniscus tears, and other degenerative conditions. We often see patients after they have either been told that they need surgery or they had a surgery in the past that did not work well for them.
