ALTERNATIVE TO KNEE REPLACEMENT SURGERY

Knee pain is the leading cause of discomfort in adults and is found in nearly 25% of the adult population. Our knees are very susceptible to injury because of the constant wear and tear of everyday life.

An osteoarthritic knee is painful to deal with on a daily basis, especially for those who participate in sports, spend a lot of time on their feet or just enjoy being active. The breaking down of the cartilage ie- torn meniscus or damage in knee cartilage, which protects your bone joints, causes osteoarthritis. When these joints grind together, this cause painful inflammation, swelling and loss of range of motion.
Knee replacement surgery is always the last option, and many a time one still endures pain post knee replacement surgery.

Medical advances today allow us to use modern techniques such as Fluoroscopy and MSK Ultrasound to withdraw Stem Cells from the abdomen and ensure the cells are being introduced into the exact area of need.
Stem Cell Therapy is the new revolutionary pain management procedure offered at Dr. Halland Medical on Park Avenue in New York.

Stem Cell Therapy works by using non-surgical stem cell injection procedures, performed within a single day and may offer a viable alternative for those who are facing surgery, joint replacement due to arthritis, old age, sports injuries or degenerative joint diseases.

Patients or athletes who regularly suffer from joint pain, or sports injury are typically able to return to normal activity following the Stem Cell Therapy procedure. Post Stem Cell Therapy patients are able to avoid the painful and lengthy rehabilitation periods, that are typically required to help restore strength, mobility and range-of-motion following invasive joint surgeries.

WHAT IS STEM CELL THERAPY PROCEDURE? 

The human body is a reservoir of stem cells, available to repair injured and damaged tissues all the time.
Using modern day high technology techniques allow us to withdraw stem cells from the patient’s body, concentrate them and then re-inject this mixture precisely to the specific area of requirement.
The re- injected stem cells enhance the natural repair process of damaged, degenerated and injured tissues, tendons, ligaments and arthritic joints.

Step 1:
To obtain Adipose Mesenchymal Cells.
This is an in-clinic simple liposuction procedure. Areas rich in fat such as the abdomen are opted for and after applying local anesthesia, fat extraction can begin.
Step 2:
The fat obtained undergoes fat grafting in order to separate and remove the oil and blood products from the cells.

Step 3:

A little amount of the patient’s blood is drawn from which the platelets undergo centrifugation. This PRP is now abundant with growth factors.
Step 4:
These growth factors are added to the mixture of adipose fat cells and stem cells.

Step 5:
This magic mixture, rich in growth factors and stem cells is then transported to the site of injury as needed via ultrascope for precision guided imaging.
This new era in medicine, allows us to use the very basic yet extremely powerful tool of growth and development. With the use of stem cells from your own body, fat cells can be activated in order to restore, repair, regenerate and heal the body naturally.
