Knee replacements and other knee surgeries are among the most common orthopedic procedures in the United States. Unfortunately, these operations come with high costs, risks of complications, and long recovery times. Regenerative Medicine offers alternatives. PRP and regenerative amniotic allograft cells injections may be able to help with your knee osteoarthritis, torn meniscus, injured ligaments, or cartilage loss – all without the need for surgery!
Regenerative Medicine vs. Surgery
There are a variety of different knee surgeries that a patient may face – knee arthroscopy, unicompartmental knee replacement, total knee replacement, etc. Each of these procedures is associated with painful, prolonged recovery, including restrictions on walking and even weight-bearing. In fact, according to the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, it can take up to an entire year to fully recuperate from a total knee replacement surgery. Given that you have two knees, this is two years lost to recovery.
Regenerative medicine presents an attractive alternative. Benefitting from advanced techniques, patients may be able to avoid surgery – and the accompanying pain, risks, and prolonged recovery – altogether. These techniques are minimally invasive, non-surgical, and largely painless. Best of all, no hospitalization is required. Contact us now to learn more.
