Stem Cell Alternatives to Knee Replacement
Beyond the Knife
Renovo Health and Beauty Offers Alternatives to Knee Surgery in Tijuana, MX
Knee pain is an increasingly common problem in the United States. Shockingly, The Washington Post reports that one in four adults in the US deal with chronic knee pain. While some knee issues can be managed with non-invasive treatments, for more serious cases a total knee replacement may be necessary. However, this procedure comes with risks and costs that some people are not willing to take on. Fortunately, there is an alternative: stem cell therapy at Renovo Health and Beauty. Let’s explore why so many people are turning to this minimally-invasive procedure as a viable alternative to traditional knee replacements.
Causes of Knee Pain
Knee pain can be caused by a variety of factors including age, injury, overuse, and medical conditions such as arthritis or bursitis. A person might become a candidate for a total knee replacement if they experience chronic and debilitating pain despite trying other treatments like physical therapy or using medications such as corticosteroids. In these cases, surgery may be the only option left to address the issue.
It’s important to note that even if your plan does provide some coverage for stem cell treatments, you may still be responsible for paying out-of-pocket costs. This could include copays or coinsurance amounts associated with these types of treatments as well as any additional fees related to them such as hospital stays or medications. Again, it’s best to contact your insurance provider directly and go over any possible costs associated with treating your condition with stem cells before proceeding with treatment.
The Risks and Costs of Knee Replacement Surgery
A total knee replacement involves replacing all or part of the joint with an artificial one made from metal or plastic components. It’s typically recommended when other treatments have failed to provide relief from chronic pain due to arthritis or injury. That said, it does come with some serious risks and costs that should be taken into consideration before deciding if this is the best course of action—including potential scars from surgery, risk of infection, blood loss during surgery, and long recovery times which could include weeks in bed followed by months of rehab sessions with a physical therapist. Additionally, it can cost up to $30k out of pocket for those who do not have adequate insurance coverage for it (depending on where you live).
Stem Cells – An Alternative To Knee Replacement Surgery
At Renovo Health & Beauty we offer stem cell therapy as an alternative treatment for individuals suffering from severe knee pain caused by degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis or injuries such as meniscus tears. Stem cells have unique properties which make them well-suited to combating inflammation caused by these issues and also their ability to heal cartilage damage which can help reduce ongoing symptoms like stiffness and swelling that comes from wear and tear on the joint over time. Moreover, because stem cells are used via minimally invasive injections rather than through open surgery patients benefit from avoiding large scars along with the reduced risk of infection associated with more invasive procedures such as total knee replacement surgeries.
Stem cell patients also enjoy the benefits of minimal downtime with regenerative treatments. In most cases, our patients only experience very minor swelling or bruising at the injection site – this resolves itself within about 48 hours. Given that there are no incisions or invasive procedures when you opt for stem cells – you also have to factor in that you’re going to be able to get back to your routine daily life much quicker.
Therefore, you also save yourself the cost associated with missing work or having to hire private duty nurses to provide in-home care during your recovery – these are the types of items that total knee replacement patients must take into account in addition to the outright cost of their procedures.
