Stem Cell Therapy for Knees
Alternatives to knee surgery like NSI’s Stem Cell Therapy can help numerous chronic knee conditions such as Knee Arthritis, Meniscus Tears, Tendon & Ligament Tears, and Overuse Injuries. Our team of experts at the National Stem Cell Institute has extensive experience when it comes to Stem Cell Therapy for Knees. We have helped establish the latest proven alternatives to knee surgery and steroids in the industry.*
Our Stem Cell Therapy for Knees can eliminate the need for knee surgery including knee cartilage replacement surgery and new knee replacement surgery. This is the best of the alternatives to knee surgery out there.*
Our same-day outpatient procedures will help alleviate your knee pain no matter what its cause. We help address different types of knee conditions, from patients who recently received arthroscopic knee surgery to long-distance runners with ruptured ACL’s. We guarantee that we will do everything that we can to give you relief from pain.
Even those with little to no cartilage around their knee have shown improvements from our regenerative musculoskeletal procedures.* Other knee replacement alternatives pale in comparison.
Our regenerative therapies like Stem Cell Therapy and the innovative Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) help different kinds of musculoskeletal problems and their underlying conditions that cause pain.*
In this procedure, our doctors will use the patient’s stem cells, derived from their own fat stores. These highly concentrated stem cells will help repair, rebuild, and strengthen the damaged tissue. These are among the most advanced alternatives to knee replacement ever developed.
Benefits of NSI’s Alternatives to Knee Surgery Like Stem Cell Therapy
Since Stem Cell Therapy for Knees is non-surgical, and the procedure is done within one day, it offers great advantages over other, less advanced alternatives to knee surgery for those who are facing joint replacement or knee surgery. Patients who undergo this type of therapy are able to return to their normal daily activity after the procedure.* They are able to avoid the painful and lengthy recovery periods that are usually required to restore mobility, strength,, and range of motion after new knee replacement surgery or knee cartilage replacement surgery.
With NSI’s alternatives to knee surgery like our stem cell and platelet rich plasma therapies, patients are far less susceptible to the types of risks that come with surgery, such as blood clots and infection.

“I had a stem cell procedure 3 months ago on both my knees and my shoulder. My knees had gotten to the point where I had extreme trouble walking. Prior to looking into this I had been into my doctor, the day I went in there I could hardly walk on my left knee the pain was so intense. Here I am 3 months later, I would say my pain level went from an 8 to 9 is down to a 2 to 3. I get up and down. I can walk.”*
“I’m feeling much improved. I’ve had several surgeries on both my knees. This was a new approach for me. I’m glad I took this step because for the first time I have relief in the discomfort I was having and pain in my knees. My right knee literally there’s zero pain or discomfort even after a 1 mile walk with my dog. The left knee has really progressed well.”*
“I had stem on both knees. I believe it’s the best thing compared to surgery where I would have been out for 5 to 6 months. With stem, it cut that over half. Downtime was maybe a week. The stem cell works and I’m very pleased with it.”*
“I have tried several different things for arthritis of the knee. I’ve tried cortisone shots, I’ve tried everything. My next alternative was knee surgery, and I really didn’t want to lose my own knees. So I thought I would try this. Anyone who is suffering and does not want to replace a joint, this is the best thing.”*
“I’ve been suffering from a knee bone-on-bone for 3 to 4 years. I was told I needed a knee replacement. I did not want to have that surgery unless I needed it. So I tried this first. I couldn’t walk fast, couldn’t do certain things. Now I can do a squat. I can ride my back pretty far.”*
FAQs About NSI’s Alternatives to Knee Surgery
Q. Should I be concerned about ethical issues with NSI’s stem cell therapy for knees?
A. Not at all. NSI uses only the patient’s own adult stem cells in our alternatives to knee replacement.Our adipose(Fat)-derived and bone marrow-derived stem cell therapies for knee conditions are an innovative therapy practiced in the United States that is safe and effective.*
These adult stem cells are known as adipose-derived stem cells,, and they are stored in the fatty layer that lies just beneath your skin.
We use ONLY your own cells in our alternatives to knee surgery and never store or alter them.
Q. How do I know if NSI’s knee replacement alternatives are good for me?
A. NSI never proceeds with platelet-rich plasma therapy or stem cell therapy for knees before a patient has had a thorough consultation and examination with one of our doctors. There are some cases in which a patient may not qualify.
But these cases are rare since our alternatives to knee surgery are based on the patient’s individual health and healing potential.
Q. What about side effects related to your platelet-rich plasma or stem cell therapy?
A. NSI’s alternatives to knee cartilage replacement surgery and new knee replacement are very safe and minimally invasive. The vast majority of our patients experience no side effects at all, other than some minor discomfort after the procedure.
This discomfort may be felt at the site where the stem cells are harvested (usually a relatively small area in the belly area or a thigh or buttock), or at the site of injection. In either case, most patients find relief through an over-the-counter pain medication such as Tylenol.
Q. What sort of benefits can I expect from your stem cell therapy for knees?
A. NSI’s alternatives to knee cartilage replacement surgery and new knee replacement surgery like stem cell therapy work to heal, repair, and regenerate tissue, cartilage, and bone that has been injured or damaged. They work regardless of whether the damage is due to normal wear and tear, sports-related injuries, or degenerative conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Our stem cell therapy for knees relieves pain and improves function.
Since our procedures are performed on an outpatient basis with only a local anesthesia needed, our alternatives to knee replacement eliminate the risks associated with surgery or general anesthesia.
Q. What is platelet-rich plasma and why do you pair it with stem cell therapy?
A. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a blood product that contains a high concentration of blood cells known as platelets. Platelets release growth factors and other protein types that play a crucial role in promoting bone and soft tissue wound healing. PRP is developed from a drawn sample of the patient’s blood.
Just as we only used the patient’s own stem cells for therapy, NSI uses only the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma. We often pair it with stem cell therapy for knees because the two therapies working together are especially effective for orthopedic conditions.
Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain
After receiving Stem Cell Therapy, patients experience relief from their chronic pain. This relief allows patients to increase their daily activities and movement, getting them back to a healthier, happier life.
Our adipose(Fat)-derived and bone marrow-derived stem cell therapies for knee conditions are an innovative therapy practiced in the United States that is safe and effective.*Yet many people are just learning about it now for the first time. These are not embryonic stem cells or cells from fetuses. These regenerative cells come straight from your own body just a few hours before they’re injected back into your body and put to work to heal disease or dysfunction.
