Joint deterioration is one of the most common age related medical conditions. As people age, they have trouble making their joints last as long as they do. The relief from pain provided by surgical reconstruction is compelling. As a result, Hip and Knee orthopedic surgical implants market is expected to reach $33 billion by 2022. 
However, knee replacement surgery isn’t something to take lightly. There are many issues that come along with the procedure.
That’s the catch 22 with traditional healing methods. If you go through with surgery, you’ll have a much longer, more difficult and painful recovery. But if you forego it, you’re stuck with an increasingly achy degenerative disease.
So what do you do?: Regenerate.
The Surgical Option: A Long and Exhausting Road
Normally, surgery is the option that most people think of or are referred to when looking for a more permanent solution to osteoarthritis of the knee. During the surgical procedure…
...a surgeon removes the damaged joint and replaces it with a plastic or metal device. Side effects of this surgery include infections at the incision site and blood clots. Recovery from this procedure takes several weeks and requires extensive physical and occupational therapy. It is possible that replacing your arthritic knee won’t be the end of your OA knee problems. You may need additional surgeries and even another knee replacement during your lifetime. 
Surgery is risky and costly business. These risks include pain and discomfort following surgery, infection, instability, aseptic loosening, and the very real problem that the surgery will not relieve chronic pain. 
In terms of cost, the average price of knee replacement surgery is $49,500 in the US...and that number doesn’t even include the cost of additional inpatient (which can double your bill) and outpatient (such as physical therapy, follow-up visits with your surgeon/doctor, and lab work) charges. 
There’s a lot at stake when it comes to surgery to treat OA of the knee. But at Regeneris Medical, we can help keep your knees--and your finances--safe.
Regenerative Medicine: Heal Your Own Knees With Our Help
At Regeneris Medical, we’ve developed our own degenerative knee disease protocol that will help get you out of that space between a rock and a hard place. In our procedure, we exploit the anti-inflammatory and healing effects of SVF (rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors) and PRP autologous platelet rich plasma (to optimize the effects of the SVF). The deployment protocol performed under local anesthesia is all done as an outpatient at the time of SVF harvesting and procurement. The entire cellular surgical procedure takes approximately 5 hours. 
The best part? The recovery time is much shorter and easier, the cost is much lower, and you get to keep your own knees.
Replacement vs. Regeneration
In comparison to surgery, similar--or even better--results for joint pain relief are achievable by undergoing regenerative procedures:
Regenerative medicine is widely seen as the next major innovation in healthcare. The ability to repair and replace damaged cells and tissue using emerging technologies such as stem cells offers the potential of lifetime cures for unmet medical needs including…
- Knee, Hip, or Shoulder problems and pain
- Neck Arthritis
- Back Arthritis and Spine Disease
- Elbow and Hand problems
- Neurological and Autoimmune Diseases such as Parkinson’s and Lupus
