Knee arthritis

Knee arthritis refers to the inflammation and degeneration of the knee joint, leading to pain, stiffness, and decreased mobility. It can be caused by various factors, including aging, obesity, previous injuries, or genetic predisposition. The most common types of knee arthritis are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and post-traumatic arthritis.

A Conflicted Sydney Scientist and a New Knee Arthritis Stem Cell Study

I’ve documented what I and others have called “fake” PRP studies. One of the key players involved in one of those studies was David Hunter, a rheumatologist at the University of Sydney. Now David has a new study, one where he’s using stem cells to treat arthritis. Is this another fake study or a real…read more

We Never Looked: Treating the Joint vs. Joint+Ligs

One of the hardest things to do in orthobiologics is to teach patients that there are major differences between what clinic A offers when it says it can perform a “PRP” injection and what clinic B offers. These two procedures may be wildly different. Today I’ll explore that concept through a medical abbreviation called “WNL”. …read more

Traditional Medicine’s Approach to Treating Knee Arthritis is Blowing Up

Three new studies have recently been added to many others that our current traditional treatment of knee arthritis is probably hurting more people than it’s helping. So let’s explore this morning what’s up. Let’s also explore how you can protect yourself from the medical care system potentially making your arthritis worse. What are the Most…read more

Bone Marrow Stem Cell Dose Matters in Knee Osteoarthritis

If there’s one overarching theme in orthobiologics that I have been discussing for almost two decades, it’s that measuring and delivering higher doses are critical for success. Despite this, 99% of physicians who offer these procedures don’t know what dose they’re delivering and use bedside kits that can only achieve low doses. Today we’ll go…read more

Our Most Recent Publication on Blood Clots, Anticoagulation, and Knee Arthritis BMC Procedures

New medical technology attains a few predictable levels as it’s adopted by more and more physicians. Because we’ve been performing knee bone marrow concentrate procedures for a very long time and collecting registry data on them, we’re well into the final level. As a result, we just published a peer-reviewed research paper on the risk…read more

Stem Cell Support Formula Study

We’ve been running a Randomized Controlled Trial on our Stem Cell Support Formula this year. What is this? Could you benefit? Let’s dig in. What Is a Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Randomized  Trial? This is the gold standard of medical research where a fake medication is given to one group and the real medication to another and…read more

How Does Orthopedic Surgery Stack Up to Interventional Orthopedics?

As I have shown a few times, orthopedic surgery has an embarrassingly poor evidence base. I recently covered a new study that helped confirm this issue a few weeks ago and I have since performed a deep dive to compare how Interventional Orthopedics stacks up. Let’s dive in. The Old Gaurd versus the New Kid…read more

Do You Have PRP Derangement Syndrome (PDS)?

I’ve documented through the years that while some forward-thinking orthopedic surgeons have embraced using PRP, many have an irrational disdain for it. This is such a bizarre juxtaposition of the evidence that I call this PDS (PRP Derangement Syndrome). Today we’ll review a recent study that proves this point. Let’s dig in. What is PRP?…read more
