Get advanced stem cell therapy for knee arthritis, sports injuries, AVN, rotator cuff tears by doctor trained in surgical and injection techniques.
Knee osteo-arthritis is widely prevalent in young & middle aged patients. Ligament, meniscal and cartilage injuries are common.
Medications, alcohol may lead to AVN of hip. Sports persons suffer ligament, tendon, meniscal and other injuries which have a tremendous impact on their careers. Tendons and joints degenerate. Hip and shoulder osteo-arthritis are also prevalent.
These conditions may require joint replacement or reconstructive surgery later on.
Thankfully now, advanced Stem cells, Platelet Rich Plasma ( PRP) treatment are alternatives which will help alleviate pain and restore mobility. Along with joint preservation procedures, they offer pain relief and postpone a knee joint replacement.

You can turn to the healing power of your own body to heal the body. Signaling cell treatment can be combined with a joint preservation procedure to give a totally biological solution.
PRP injections
can heal sports injuries and allow fast return to the sport. Bone death in early cases of avascular necrosis can be arrested. This might result in pain relief, thus postponing the need for a hip replacement.
Cartilage lesions in young patients can be healed with a single stage cartilage repair.
Knee osteo-arthritis is the largest area in India for the potential application of these biological treatments. So let’s have a look at the evidence.
1) Studies have shown that PRP can offer pain relief for upto six months in early stages of osteo-arthritis. In the clinic, the x ray-s of these patients don’t show joint space narrowing on weight bearing films. PRP treatments are office procedures and cheaper than signaling cell procedures.
Stem cells are more effective in advanced cases of osteo-arthritis. They offer pain relief felt soon after and which can last for several years. How long? Nobody knows at this stage. They don’t regenerate articular cartilage which is the original lining of the joint. They can lead to formation of hyaline like cartilage which has got inferior properties to hyaline cartilage.
Biological treatments carry very little risk. When I can extend the dateline for your primary joint replacement, this should postpone or avoid a revision replacement. The biggest advantage of PRP & Stem cell therapy is that you can continue with the functional use of your own natural joints for as long as possible.

What are the results?

Our early results are encouraging, particularly in the knee. Patients have got pain relief and are able to continue with their daily activities.

Who is an eligible candidate for stem cell therapy of knee osteo-arthritis?

  1. Young people with mild to moderate knee arthritis.
  2. Patients not medically stable for knee replacement but still have some cartilage and joint fluid left.

Who is not suited for stem cell treatment of knee arthritis?

  1. Obese patients with BMI > 35.
  2. Uncontrolled inflammatory arthritis like Rheumatoid arthritis and sero-negative arthritis. However they can be considered after biological treatment with disease modifying drugs.
  3. Young patients with post traumatic arthritis and gross deformities following road traffic accidents. Generally associated deformities with OA knee like bow legs, knock knees and shortening cannot be corrected and need corrective surgery like an osteotomy. To know more about this visit

Although patients with knee OA are most common, others with AVN hip, rotator cuff tears, tennis elbow, foot conditions and fracture non unions also seek help.
