Knee OA- Stem cell treatment vs total knee replacement India.
This 72 year old gentleman receive stem cell treatment for Osteo-arthritis in his left knee and a total knee replacement in his right knee. I performed a full bending knee replacement in his right knee six weeks ago. You can see the degree of knee bending in his right knee.
I performed a stem cell treatment for the same condition in his left knee on 14/6/16. In this picture, he is squatting hours after the injection.
The comparison is as follows- In my practice, a total knee replacement provides pain relief, corrects deformity and gives full bending. However it involves amputation of the joint.
A stem cell treatment gives pain relief, doesn’t correct the deformity and gives good knee bending. It doesn’t involve amputation of the joint. I am conducting a study on this topic. Volunteers with bilateral knee OA are welcome to participate in this study.
