Ostearthritis Right Hip Case Study
Today, I saw a gentleman for a followup visit who had severe ostearthritis of his right hip. He was 65-years-old when he saw me and he had a long history with 10 years of pain in the hip.
His MRI demonstrated “extensive subchondral degenerative changes” on both sides of the joint with cartilage loss and narrowing of the joint space with bone spur formation.
We performed a stem cell treatment on him using his own stem cells from fat and bone marrow. We followed this with treatment using growth factors from his platelets.
Today we saw him, six months after his last treatment, and his pain score has gone from a 7/10 to 0/10 with minimal activity, up to a maximum of 2/10 after playing golf with strenuous activity.
Essentially, the patient got his life back and he avoided hip replacement at this time in his life.
We will be seeing him once or twice a year. This is another example of a success story with the patient using orthobiologic stem cell therapies for hip arthritis.
