More Knee ACL Stem Cell Results
I’ve blogged on dozens of before and after ACL images, so today’s blog will be short.
This is a patient who just achieved the two-year mark after a knee stem cell procedure received as part of our groundbreaking randomized controlled trial on the Prec-ACLR procedure. The patient was seen in 2019 by Dr. Hyzy at our Colorado office. She fell while skiing in Vail in January 2019. One month later she saw Dr. Hyzy. At that point, she was still having left knee pain and swelling. The pain was a 4/10 and resting helped.
These are her 6-month MRI results. The yellow arrowheads point to the damaged ghost-like ACL on the before image and then to a darker and healthy ACL in the after image. How is she doing at 24 months? Full activity and no pain or problems. All of that was achieved in a fraction of the time and with a fraction of the invasiveness of ACL surgery.
How Is This Highly Complex Non-invasive Procedure Performed?

The upshot? How many invasive ACL surgeries can be avoided? Based on what we’ve seen over the years, about 2 in 3 patients who currently get ACL surgery may now be able to skip it.
