The Advantages of Stem Cell Treatment for Knees and Hips


Hip and knee pain can be debilitating for everyday life. From climbing steps to taking a walk, arthritis and osteoporothis can greatly impact your quality of life. When it comes to treating joint and tissue complications of the knees and hips, one of the most popular treatment is replacement. Although this can be a successful option for treatment, there are several downsides for surgical hip and knee replacement.

Considering Stem Cell Therapy: The Downsides to Surgical Knee and Hip Replacement

While there are advantages to opting for traditional knee and hip and replacement, there is also various negative points. Before you consider traditional knee and hip replacement, these are a few considerations to keep in mind:

Traditional knee and hip replacement is an invasive process. It entails surgery to replace the bad hip or knee with plastic or metal parts. Furthermore, it can take 6 weeks or longer to heal from a knee or hip replacement—and up to a year to fully recover.

  • A replaced joint will never perform as well as the natural hip or knee. It’s believed that a replaced joint will perform at around 75% as compared to the natural joint.
  • A replaced knee also won’t be as flexible as the natural joint. It can also be uncomfortable to pt weight on the new joint.
  • Some patients may experience clicking of the joints after replacement. Patients also may experience numbness around the scar.
  • Lastly, most joint replacement can last about 20 years or longer. However, if you’re overweight or you’re very active, you may need to repeat the surgery at some point down the road.

    What are the Advantages of Stem Cell Treatment for Knees and Hips?

    Stem cell treatment for knees and hips has yet to become mainstream. However, Advanced Regenerative Medicine is using stem cell treatment for knees and hips—especially in cases of arthritis and osteoporosis. This form of treatment has several benefits, including:

  • There is no surgery required for stem cell treatment for knees and hips. This means that this is an outpatient procedure and a very short healing time, since the treatment is administrated via injection.
  • The recovery process is much quicker and easier than surgical hip and knee replacement.
  • Many patients are up and moving within 24 hours.
  • Some patients can do light exercise within a week of the injection, such as a stationary bike.
  • There is little chance of infection or rejection, since the stem cells come from your own body.
  • Risks are generally nonexistent.
