Options instead of Knee Replacement

Hi, I am writing on behalf of my mum, who has quite severe osteoarthritis in her right hip joint and is keen to know whether cartilage repair is a viable option (instead of joint replacement). Do you know if anyone in Australia is involved in cartilage repair for osteoarthritis? Alternatively, is cartilage repair treatment being offered for hip osteoarthritis in other countries? If it isn’t currently being offered as a treatment, is there a database to register your interest in being part of a clinical trial for osteoarthritis and cartilage repair? Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time in answering my questions. Kind regards, Andrew Taylor

  • Stem Cell Therapy

    Knee stem cell therapy reduces pain and cartilage repair. As a consequence, many people were able to improve their quality of life and avoid surgery. Knee stem cell therapy is invasive to a minimum. It is a procedure that can reduce inflammation, slow and repair all these forms of arthritis damage, and delay or prevent surgery to replace the knee. Simple methods can be used to extract adult stem cells from bone marrow or fat. Then, with image guidance, it is concentrated and injected into the knee, usually for successful results. Stem cell therapy using adult stem cells is safest due to the collection of stem cells from the body of the person as it reduces the chances of any kind of infection.Navya Sharma
