Tens of millions of Americans suffer from knee pain due to arthritis, cartilage defects or soft tissue injuries. Traditional treatments involve steroid injections, bracing or surgeries such as joint replacement. Regenerative medicine now offers a better option with stem cell injections that offer the potential for new cartilage growth and pain relief.
The regenerative treatments offered at TeleHealth are performed by US Board Certified stem cell doctors with over 20 years experience. This includes bone marrow derived stem cell injections and platelet rich plasma therapy. These treatments place platelets, growth factors and stem cells into the area of damage and stimulate repair. They do not just mask pain like a steroid injection does.
Recent published studies are showing the benefit or stem cells for knees, such as the one out of Hospital for Special Surgery looking at PRP injections. Over three fourths of those patients had pain relief, and serial MRI scans showed no cartilage degeneration for a year in most of the patients as well.
Many professional athletes have had stem cell and PRP injections into the knee, such as Tiger Woods, Rafael Nadal and Brandon Roy. There is a reason, and that is because the results are excellent and the risks are very low.
At TeleHealth, a significant amount of the procedures are covered by insurance. Pre-authorization is necessary and it depends on which insurance coverage the patient has. For more information on stem cell injections for knee arthritis and other conditions, call (888) 828-4575.
