Early Results Showing Positive Outcome for Knee Cartilage Regrowth from Stem Cells
A recent FDA approved study performed by The Andrews Institute is examining cartilage regrowth in the knee using a series of stem cell injections, and it appears to be showing very positive early results. The series of injections in combination with physical therapy could potentially limit the need for total joint replacement surgeries in patients with knee osteoarthritis. The process is broken down into three phases of treatment and consists of 14 injections over an 18 month period, with a much shorter recovery time than joint replacement surgery. This study has only begun to scratch the surface in another area where stem cells can potentially change traditional medicine, and the outlook is promising!
