Stem Cells for a Knee Meniscus Tear

By /

stem cell cycling knee

JS is a middle aged cyclist who was seen in February of this year for an acute meniscus tear. He was already scheduled for surgery to have the torn piece of his meniscus cut out, when his research showed that he may need that meniscus intact some day. As a result, he contacted our clinic and we performed a Regenexx-SCP procedure under ultrasound guidance. In this stem cell cycling knee meniscus repair we took blood from his arm and processed it in such a way as to preserve the circulating blood stem cells as well as his own platelets. His procedure was almost 6 months ago (this is an update) and not only has he had excellent pain relief, but he’s returned to a very active cycling season. This was all done without extended downtime (he had none) and without rehab. He’s wearing his new Regenexx stem cell procedure jersey (see above). We’re thinking of starting a cycling team now with patients who have their knees treated with stem cells and we’re able to avoid knee surgery (see prior cycling patients treated with their own stem cells). They may not yet be able to challenge Lance, but at least they can all claim to have no arthroscopy scars!
