Knee Stem Cells and Skiing and Hiking the Highland Bowl in Aspen

Knee Stem Cells and Skiing and Hiking make a good combination.  We treat many patients who want to be as active as possible as they age without having to get their joints replaced or major surgery.

DW is a 59 year old patient who is a huge propoent of “hot yoga” and frankly could pass for his mid forties. He has been treated with the Regenexx-SCP procedure in his shoulder and ankle as well as the Regenexx-C procedure for his left knee. His left knee has a bad ACL graft from an old surgery, meniscus tears, and moderate to severe patella-femoral (kneecap) arthritis. For the last few years he’s wanted to ski the Highland Bowl in Aspen (picture above), but his knee has prevented that from happening. While not all Regenexx-C patients will ever be able to do this, this is what he recently wrote me:

“The top of the lift is just off to the right of the picture below.  Then you hike up the ridge for about 30 minutes to get to the peak (12,392 ft).  Then it’s a wonderful 15 minute ski down to the bottom.  I’ve been wanting to do this since I first started going to Aspen 6 years ago.  My knee felt good all the way up and all the way down!”

His picture at the top is below! DW will be coming back for a second treatment of his knee and hopefully we can keep him skiing 50 plus days a season over the next decade!

Not all patients should expect to be able to ski this run after receiving Regenexx knee stem cell injections!
