Stem Cell Therapy and PRP for Knee Injuries
Stem cell therapy or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for knees can be an ideal nonsurgical alternative for those who suffer knee pain because of an injury or degeneration in the joint from wear and tear. Traditional surgical options include arthroscopic surgery or total knee replacement, which come with potential complications and may require months of rehabilitation and recovery.
Stem cell therapy may be appropriate for treating:
- Mild to moderate osteoarthritis
- Partial ligament tears: ACL and PCL
- Partial meniscal tears
- Augment to ACL or PCL reconstruction
Stem cell therapy is not able to treat:
- Complete ACL tear
- Complete meniscus tear
- Severe osteoarthritis
