As a leading practitioner of stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine, Dr. Santos utilizes the most innovative stem cell and platelet rich plasma (PRP) procedures for treating knee pain. The Regenerative Cell Institutes of Las Vegas, Nevada, and Mason City, Iowa, offer the most advanced regenerative injection treatments for knee pain.
Patients suffering from knee pain, including injuries to the knee meniscus, cartilage, ACL or MCL ligaments, or chronic knee pain resulting from past injury or arthritis may be prime candidates for knee stem cell therapy or platelet rich plasma procedures. Stem cell therapy for knee pain serves as a viable alternative to both arthroscopic knee surgery to repair ligament tears and knee joint replacement surgery. These procedures are not only effective for treating knee pain but also eliminate the need for the painful rehabilitation and recovery processes associated with traditional, invasive surgical procedures.
Millions of Americans suffer from knee pain due to overuse, injury, degenerative joint disease, or arthritis. While knee surgery, cartilage substitutes, and steroid injections have been the preferred treatments, steroid injections damage local tissues over time and certain types of knee problems, including significant meniscal and ligamentous injuries, are not typically resolved using these methods. Regenerative Cell Institute’s innovative stem cell and platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections provide alternative treatments that are not only effective but also minimally invasive.
Dr. Santos utilizes a stem cell therapy protocol for degenerative knee disease that attempts to exploit the anti-inflammatory and healing effects of stromal vascular fraction(SVF), which is rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors. The protocol uses autologous platelet rich plasma to optimize the effects of the SVF.
Our stem cell procedures for knee pain are performed under local anesthesia completed in office as outpatient procedures, at the time of SVF harvesting and procurement. The entire cellular surgical procedure takes approximately 2-3 hours.
