Stem cell treatment is a highly effective method of regenerating or repairing injured or damaged tissue using the individual’s own cells. In the case of the knee, stem cell injections are mostly used in patients who are suffering with osteoarthritis or have a sports related injury. Over the years, stem cell research and treatments in the knee has generated impressive and life-changing results for patients.

What is the stem cell treatment process for the knee?

Stem cells are found in various areas of the body, the cells that are used in relation to joint problems are known as mesenchymal stem cells. These cells are harvested from the abdominal fat or bone marrow under general anaesthetic using a specific type of needle and syringe.

Once the cells are harvested, the various elements of the fluid are separated from each other in a closed-circuit system. Next, the concentrated cells are isolated, and the surgeon injects them into the knee using an X-ray for precise guidance to the relevant area. Stem cell for knees is an outpatient procedure, it takes around 1 hour, and patients can go home later in the same day.
