Stem Cell vs. Knee Arthritis Surgery
Knee arthritis is both common and debilitating!
There are many factors both genetic and environmental that contribute to the disease process. In many cases, patients may have a predisposing knee injury and/or loose ligaments around the knee joint leading to abnormal alignment an accelerated breakdown. Loss of cartilage at the ends of knee joint bones, poorly functioning meniscus, bone spurs and bruising are frequent findings in Knee Arthritis. Often overlooked, the knee joint environment that surrounds all of the knee joint tissues becomes “catabolic” meaning that it contains an increased level of destructive enzymes that destroy the knee joint over time. As the arthritic process continues it is not uncommon to have worn down or tear as knee arthritis progresses. In more severe cases, the bones can “bruise” around the joint and these bruises can become very painful and sometimes need to be treated as well.
