Knee Stem Cell Update in an Ultra Long Distance Mountain Biker
Is there a mountain biking knee stem cell treatment to address the particular needs of the ultra high activity level and resultant injuries of mountain biking? DG is an elite mountain biker who avoided knee surgery 3 years ago by having his own stem cells injected into his knee. How’s he doing on the mountain bike? We keep getting back long-term reports from our Regenexx-C knee stem cell patients. While we track these patients in a registry, they also either come into the office from time to time or ping us via e-mail. Since I’m constantly asked the question, “How long will this last?, it’s helpful to let DG tell you. This is his e-mail:
“Dear doctors–3 years ago you treated my left knee twice with my stem cells and the results have been fantastic-I continue to race as an ultra cyclist completing the tour divide MTB race (2750 miles) the last two years in 20 days and other long ultra events. Currently I am getting ready to race in three ultra bike events that will cover 4000 miles in three events in roughly 35 days and also an 1100 mile ride down the coast of vietnam. I am looking to see if there are additional procedures I can do to relieve the pain I sometimes get from overuse due to the fact that I have no medial meniscus in my left knee and continue to push my body to its max limits.”
Can every knee stem cell patient expect this kind of result? No. I’ve recommended an update Regenexx-C treatment for DG due to his ultra high activity levels on the mountain bike. We wish him many more happy miles on the trail (looks like he’ll need tens of thousands of more miles just to keep up)!
