Knee and Hip Pain
600,000 Total Knee Replacements are done every year. About 300,000 total hip replacements are done yearly. There are many conservative remedies available in our clinic to patients that are not typically available by over the counter methods.
These include: Hyaluronic acid injections, steroid injections (in the clinic for knees, sent to interventional radiologist for hip injections using real time x-ray for localization); stem cell injections (both autologous and amnion derived) as well as platelet rich plasma injections (should be available sometime in 2017.)
The amnion derived cells for stem cell injection are not derived from aborted fetuses, but come from the placenta only. This source is FDA approved and quality controlled for infectious processes prior to arriving at our facility for injection.
