Orange, California (PRWEB) March 17, 2014
The top stem cell clinic in Southern California, Telehealth Medical Group, is now offering treatment for knee cartilage defects. The various outpatient therapies are often able to provide pain relief and help patients avoid the need for surgery. Treatment is often covered by insurance in full or partially, call (888) 828-4575.
Knee cartilage defects typically occur in young to middle aged individuals. These defects may cause inability to participate in amateur or professional sports, or even recreational activities.
Traditional surgery for cartilage defects involves either microfracture or implant procedures. They may work exceptionally well, however, surgeries entail risks and considerable rehabilitation time. Stem cell therapy for arthritis and cartilage defects offers great potential.
The stem cell therapies offered at Telehealth Medical Group are administered by Board Certified doctors. They include bone marrow, fat or amniotic derived stem cell injections, and there are also options for platelet rich plasma therapy and blood derived stem cells therapy. These procedures have been shown in small studies to offer a high rate of pain relief and the ability for patients to return to activity considerably faster than with operative treatments.
Often times, the stem cell procedures are covered by insurance completely or partially. There are two locations for Telehealth Medical Group, one in Orange and the other in Upland. For more information and scheduling, call (888) 828-4575.
