Successful Treatment For 76-year-old Woman with Bilateral Knee Pain

Multi Treatment Approach for Bone on Bone Arthritis

Today we are close to completing our treatment with a 76-year-old woman who has had bilateral knee pain and was told by an orthopedic surgeon that she needed total joint replacements.

When we first saw her, we could see that she has bone on bone arthritis of both knees with crepitus. There was also significant tenderness throughout the joint.

Multi Treatment Program

We put her through a treatment program of bone marrow amniotic tissue graft followed by platelet lysate injections with a pain score after the treatments of 0/10.

Why This Is Important?

We site this case study since it gives another example of a patient with bone on bone arthritis, told she needed total knee replacement surgery for the knees and the potent anti-inflammatory effects of these orthobiologic therapies to decrease pain and improved function. Of note, the x-rays showed the bone on bone arthritis, and the placement of two needles in the knee and the use of the black contrast allowed us to determine where the orthobiologic cells are going into the knee.

Our Prognosis

She is ready to get back into an exercise program to improve her strength and functional abilities.
