Stem Cell Therapy Knees
|Our treatment: Stem Cell Therapy Knees
Regenerative Medicine is somewhat a merger of science and medicine, where the focus is to use repair & regenerative strategies to aid the body's healing.
Stem cells are a major focus in the field of regenerative medicine. Our bodies have multiple ways to heal, however with degenerative disease the body is incapable of healing itself. In the case of Osteoarthritis their is either none or too little number of stem cells in the joint to initiate the repair response. This is why knee osteoarthritis occurs. The body simply cannot heal as a general.
Symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee may include:
- pain that increases when you are active, but gets a little better with rest
- feeling of warmth in the joint
- stiffness in the knee, especially in the morning or when you have been sitting for a while
- decrease in mobility of the knee, making it difficult to get in and out of chairs or cars, use the stairs, or walk
- creaking, crackly sound that is heard when the knee moves
Our program combines injections of cells with various supportive therapies to stimulate stem cell activity to repair cartilage. A 7 day program is performed at our center in Bangkok, Thailand, where a daily treatment treatment program will be given.
Results: We expect our patients to have various improvements such as:
- Reduced pain
- Reduced inflammation
- Increased mobility
- Cartilage growth
The changes can occur differently to each patient, but generally we expect to see improvements week 4 onwards. It does take time for chrondrocytes to form which make up the cartilage as seen below in the image.
