Knee Stem Cell and PRP Treatment and Therapy

Lipogems®, Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures (PRP) and stem cell treatments for Knee Pain

The knee is the largest joint in the body and therefore can suffer from a range of injuries both traumatic and inflammatory.  Knee pain and injuries can be treated by stem cell therapy, Lipogems® adipose tissue transfer and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment.

The most common knee injuries include fractures, dislocations and sprains and tears of soft tissues such as ligaments. Knee pain can also be caused by arthritis. Osteoarthritis which is also called degenerative arthritis, is the most common type of arthritis and occurs when the cartilage in the knee deteriorates with use and age.

Treatment for knee conditions such as osteoarthritis is usually initially aimed at relieving the pain and involves anti-inflammatory medicines and physiotherapy. This may be followed by a series of corticosteroid injections.  The next step may be an arthroscopy and if the condition continues you may require knee replacement surgery.

Knee stem cell therapy, Lipogems® adipose tissue transfer and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment can delay or avoid the need for knee surgery. The treatments are minimally invasive, can decrease inflammation, stop the progression of arthritic damage and repair joint cartilage. The recovery time is also much shorter than with surgery.

The treatment

Lipogems® Therapy

Stem cells are simply your own body cells that can renew themselves and turn into other cells (differentiate). They live inside all of us in various tissues; their job is to repair damage as it occurs. We all know when we have a cut or injury our body repairs itself. As we age or experience big injuries, we may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to fully repair the area.
The Lipogems procedure helps overcome this problem by extracting your own cells from an area of high volume, then concentrating the cells and re-injecting them into the damaged area to help the body heal naturally.
This procedure can be used for a wide range of conditions and are the tool of choice for injuries, arthritis and other conditions that may be more significant than what may be treated with our Platelet Rich Plasma or Platelet Lysate Procedures.

Blood Platelet treatments (PRP)

PRP injection Treatments contain healing growth components from your own blood that increase your body’s natural ability to repair itself.
The use of PRP to repair joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes.
Platelet injection treatments are effective because they have a stimulating effect on the stem cells within the targeted area, making those stem cells work harder to heal damaged tissues.
Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more pure and concentrated than those created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis and spine conditions.
