This from the Chicago Tribune/Section 1/ Tuesday, May 7, 2013:

“Knee Pain? Bone on Bone? Want to Avoid Knee Surgery?” ” This Knee protocol has given the Doctors over an 87% success rate in relieving Knee Pain without surgery. CALL IMMEDIATELY”

Visualizing a bull in the pasture after feeding on bad hay best summarizes my response. This is a typical seductive marketing come-on for viscosupplementation, a series of injections numbering from one to five, depending on the product used. While there may be a place for short-term management of symptomatic knee arthritis with viscosupplementation, it is in lieu of oral anti-inflammatory and nothing more. “87% success rate in relieving knee pain”, I don’t believe it, show me the data.

In preparation for the scientific presentation I am scheduled to deliver in Los Angeles, at The Orthobiologic Institute Regenerative Medicine June 7,8 Conference, I have compiled my one year data on Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate/Stem Cell knee joint intervention for arthritis and compared it to my results of year one after a Total Knee Replacement. Readers of this Blog will recall that before I “graduated” into Cellular Orthopedics, I had dedicated 38 years as a joint replacement surgeon.  This former field of endeavor places me in a unique position as the only surgeon practicing cellular orthopedics with a background in joint replacement. The significance is I am credentialed to compare surgery with Stem Cell intervention results.

Below is a graph and explanation of results. You, the potential patient may reach independent conclusions without the seduction of anecdotal advertising and marketing without a scientific basis.  My goal is not transient pain relief; it is control of the arthritic process and a restoration of your functional capacity while postponing or eliminating the risks inherent in a joint replacement.
