 knee stem cells

Can knee stem cells get your knees back in shape for the trail? LN is a 60 year old woman who was first seen by Dr. Hanson in May of 2010 with a two year history of left and a 10 year history of right knee pain. Her pain was worse with walking, stairs, water aerobics, and spinning classes. On the left she had had an arthroscopic knee surgery 8 years prior. SynVisc injections generally helped, while cortisone knee injections didn’t help. However, by 2010 the SynVisc type injections we’re getting less effective. On MRI’s she had severe arthritis in both knees, right worse than left and also bulging discs in her low back. She was treated with a combination of stem cell procedures including Regenexx-AD, -SD, and one -C procedure. She also had Regenexx PL-Disc procedures on her low back. Her stem cell result some two years after her first visit? This is an e-mail sent to Dr. Hanson recently:

“Dr. Hanson:

I just wanted to let you know how I am doing.

We went to the Grand Tetons in September and did some hiking.  I am finally able to walk on hikes.  It was so enjoyable.

I am also doing spinning twice a week and have no problems doing it.  It is nice to get back to a normal life.

I have lost some weight, but not as much as I want to.  I am still working on it.

I wanted to thank you for all you help.  It has made such a difference in my life.
