Excellent stem cell treatment for total knee replacement

Posted , 4 users are following.

I had a fantastic complete knee replacement using stem cells over 3 years ago  which did not involve a large cut. It was carried out by Prof. Anan Sherry at the private Spire Hospital in Chatham. Happy to share experience!

    Hi Sue I would be very interested to know more about your procedure. I actually investigated stem cell therapy for my knee early this year. I was told that due to my knee being bone on bone as the cartilidge on the inner medial compartment was worn away that stem cell wasn't an option. I went on to have a partial knee replacement in June this year. I have severe pain in my other knee now and do not want to have to go through another replacement. I would love to hear about an alternative.

    I look forward to knowing more Sue.

    Thanks in advance

    The difference is that the operation is done using keyhole and avoids large cut across muscles. They put a scaffold on the bare bone and inject your own stem cells into it. The stem cells start to grow into new cartlelidge. At six months and a year I could see that the cart ledge have completely repaired. Amazing! I did go privately and only a few hospitals do this operation.
