Your Alternative to Knee Surgery
Surgical options for those dealing with painful knee issues range from arthroscopic knee surgery to total knee joint replacement. Recent research has shown that some of the most popular arthroscopic surgeries have no benefit at all (including meniscus surgery). Knee replacement is extremely traumatic and carries new-found risks of toxic wear particles entering the blood stream. Surgical risks aside, all surgeries minimally require months of painful rehab to regain strength and mobility. Most surgeries also accelerate the cascade of degeneration that leads to osteoarthritis.
Surgery is sometimes the obvious solution for severe cases and we acknowledge that stem cells cannot treat everything. However, we have seen exciting results on difficult cases, such as complete muscle and ligament tears, and we have helped thousands of patients with severe arthritis avoid knee replacement and continue to do the things they love with little or no pain. Most Stem Cell Manila patients experience little or no downtime from their procedure and are encouraged to return to activity as they begin to feel better.
More Detailed Information for Common Knee Conditions
Knee replacement surgery comes with many serious risks and complications, but is often considered to be a straightforward and accepted approach to treatment for those suffering from significant arthritis or injury in this joint.
Around our Stem Cell Manila Network, meniscus tears are one of the most common injuries we treat. The last option anyone should consider for treating a meniscus injury is the surgical removal of all or some of this important structure.
Knee ACL tears are a very common injury. The rush to surgery has long been due to the traditional thinking that an ACL will not heal. Our experience treating ACL tears with the Stem Cell Manila patented stem cell treatment has shown that it may be a better option for those who have experienced a partial or complete non-retracted ACL tear.
