Who benefits from stem cell treatment of knee

After the press conference on cell treatment for the UK scientist, there has been a lot of interest from people of all ages. I wish to provide prospective patients some guidance as to who is eligible and who is not.

Firstly who are the eligible patients?

  1. Young people with mild to moderate knee arthritis
  2. Older people in whom a knee replacement may be risky.
  3. Patients not medically stable for knee replacement.

Who is not a suitable candidate for cell treatment?

  1. Patients with bone grating against bone.
  2. Subluxation of the joint due to sever wear.
  3. Young patients with gross deformities.
