“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 stem cell knee injections that are part of our alternatives to knee replacement. Our adipose(fat)-derived and bone marrow-derived stem cell therapies for knee conditions are an innovative form of therapy practiced in the United States that is safe and effective.*
The adult stem cells we use in our Florida stem cell therapy for knees 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 when we prepare your stem cell knee injections.
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 for our stem cell treatment for knees.
However, these cases are rare because our alternatives to knee surgery that involve stem cells for knees are based on each patient’s individual health and healing potential.
Q. What side effects are related to your platelet-rich plasma or stem cell therapy for knees?
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 who undergo Florida stem cell therapy for knees experience no side effects 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 who have received injections of stem cells for knees 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, including stem cell therapy, work to heal, repair, and regenerate tissue, cartilage, and bone that has been injured or damaged. Stem cells for knees work regardless of whether the damage is due to normal wear and tear, sports-related injuries, or degenerative conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and knee 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 that can be more effective than the relief provided by an intra articular injection.* This relief allows patients to increase their daily activities and movement, getting them back to a healthier, happier life.
