Knee Replacement Alternative: Stem Cell Therapy
Patients suffering from joint pain may think surgery is their only option. Stem Cell Therapy could be a better option than a knee replacement. Regenerative Therapy may provide better results and benefits, if you are a good candidate for these treatments, as an alternative to surgery.
- Quicker Recovery Time
With most major surgeries, there is a long recovery period. This can last from a couple of weeks to several months. Stem Cell Therapy has little to no downtime. Patients may return to mild activity following treatment. This benefits patients with jobs or involved in exercise, continuing their normal routine as quickly as possible.
- Fewer Complications
Surgery has a higher risk for complications over Stem Cell Therapy. Large incisions could become infected, causing further issues. Most Stem Cell Therapies do not require incisions. The injection sites rarely become infected. This is particularly useful for elderly or immunocompromised patients, allowing them to receive a safer form of treatment.
- Natural Treatment
The body does not always react well to foreign objects. A knee replacement involves placing a metal or ceramic joint in the affected area. Sensitive patients can experience issues with the artificial joint. Stem Cell Therapy is a natural treatment where nothing artificial is placed into your body. Patients can avoid metal in their bodies.
Stem Cell Therapy offers patients a safer and natural alternative to a knee replacement. Do not schedule a knee replacement, without considering Stem Cell Therapy, as an alternative.
