Cindy Avoids a Total Knee Replacement With Regenexx

Even after knee surgery, Cindy had a lot of pain and missed work often due to her knee pain. She could barely walk and relied on a cane whenever she did walk.
After attending a Regenexx seminar, she booked an appointment with Paras Shah, MD, at Regenexx Kansas City. Based on his examination of her knee, he felt she wasn’t an ideal candidate for the treatment, but she decided to move forward with it anyway.
“You get up and you walk out — that’s what I tell everyone,” she says. “I went back to work. I’m working 12-hour shifts three days a week, which I could have never done before I had this treatment. And even if I’d had a knee replacement, it would have been months before I could have gone back to work.”
