The Unconventional Option
Posted on April 25, 2019
Are you thinking about it but don’t want to do it? Are you dreading the whole thing – especially the recovery? Are you checking out all your options and hoping your old standbys for relief work one last time? Are you putting off that doctor’s appointment because you don’t want to hear that you’re out of options? If you’re just about ready to pull the trigger and call to schedule your knee-replacement surgery, stop. Put the phone down and read this.
Total knee replacement is frequently prescribed by many doctors and orthopedists to relieve pain and discomfort, improve mobility, and restore function to an arthritic knee. Knee replacements are usually recommended when all other conventional treatments, such as weight loss, steroid injections, exercise, physical therapy and prescription medications, have stopped working.
But, is it the best option for individuals living with osteoarthritis of the knee? Knee-replacement surgery is still surgery, and with that comes risks of complications and infection, as well as a lengthy and uncomfortable recovery period.
What if we told you there is another option, and you could potentially avoid knee-replacement surgery and finally find relief for your nagging knee pain? Many individuals have found that personal cell therapy can help reduce painful symptoms associated with knee-joint osteoarthritis.
Just the Facts
When weighing the options between knee-replacement surgery and personal therapy, consider the facts:
- Knee replacement requires surgery; personal cell therapy requires just a tiny incision.
- There are risks of complication and infection with joint-replacement procedures; personal cell therapy has little to no risks and no chance of rejection – it’s your body’s own cells!
- Recovering from knee joint-replacement surgery can take weeks or months, while personal cell therapy requires no downtime after the procedure.
- Joint replacements have a 10- to 15-year life expectancy, which means you could end up having another knee joint replacement in your lifetime.
Statistics show that there are nearly 700,000 surgical knee joint replacements performed every year in the United States, and this number is expected to increase to a staggering 3.48 million surgical procedures per year in the next 10 years.
