Avoiding Hip Replacement
Here we are presenting a patient who is 82-years-old who has had pain for years in her hips and was treated with cortisone injections. Over the past few years prior to seeing us, the cortisone injections stopped working and the orthopedist told her that she needs a hip replacement. When we saw her, we noted that she had severe osteoarthritis to the right hip and her pain score was 8/10 and it is severely affecting her ability to function. In addition to the cortisone injections she was getting physical therapy, home exercise, yoga, massage, heat and ice.
We put her through a treatment using a stem cell graft obtaining the cells from bone marrow concentrate, fat and blood platelets.
It is now three months after the procedure and her pain score is 1-2/10 at its worst and frequently 0/10 or no pain. She is back to doing yoga and dancing again.
We will follow her every six months to a year and she may require a simple maintenance of PRP treatment.
