Sandy had such terrible knee pain that she could barely walk, even with the assistance of a cane. The pain was so bad she had to cancel a trip to Europe. An orthopedic surgeon told her she’d need a knee replacement.
But then at a physical, her primary care doctor mentioned he had other patients who’d had success relieving their pain with Regenexx. She brought her previous X-rays and MRIs to Paras Shah, MD, at Regenexx Kansas City, who performed an ultrasound and thorough examination on her knee. He recommended Regenexx-SD as the best course of treatment for Sandy’s knee pain.
“I noticed after about a month, and it just got better from there,” she says. “At six months, I have no pain, so I’m doing whatever I want to do.”
