Regenerative Medicine for Knee Injuries

Millions of people of all ages suffer with knee injuries. They may be incurred during sports, work, or recreational activities that damage ligaments or tear cartilage. Nearly a million patients in the U.S. undergo knee arthroscopy for such injuries in a typical year. Knee injuries may also be due to arthritis or other degenerative changes in the knee joint. These patients are usually treated with anti-inflammatory drugs, which have a host of adverse side effects, and, in severe cases, total knee replacement surgery. That’s why many people with knee injuries are considering regenerative medicine.

Stem Cell Research and Knee Injuries

The Newport Beach Stem Cell Treatment Center’s approach to knee injuries includes protocols that utilize the beneficial properties of adult stem cells. We offer an outpatient procedure that involves isolating  the patient’s own stem cells from fat harvested during a liposuction procedure under local anesthesia. These cells are then concentrated and deployed back into the patient’s body by  injection or intravenous infusion. The entire process  takes about three hours.

This promising approach to regenerative medicine is the subject of a growing body of stem cell research, as discussed in Science News: “Stem cell treatment spurs cartilage growth.“ (Click here to read more.)

We are committed not only to quality care for our patients with knee injuries but also to stem cell research and the advancement of regenerative medicine. We are proud to be part of the only Investigational Review Board (IRB)-based stem cell treatment network in the United States that utilizes fat-transfer surgical technology. We have an array of ongoing IRB-approved protocols, and we provide care for patients with a wide variety of disorders that may be treated with adult stem cell-based regenerative therapy. Not all knee injuries respond well to stem cell therapy, and each patient must be assessed individually to determine the potential for optimal results from this regenerative process.
