This patient is in his 50’s and has advanced hip arthritis bad enough for a surgeon to recommend a hip replacement. After less invasive treatments did not help, we did a bone marrow derived stem cell injection into the right hip in the office. No surgery, no general anesthesia, no joint replacement, and done in less than an hour. You can hear how he is doing in his own words here. Results vary…this is meant to be one example!

This is an interesting application of orthobiologics for a wrist problem that often requires surgery. The patient had a chronic history of left wrist distal radio-ulnar joint instability that persisted despite 5 months of nonoperative treatment modalities. We discussed surgery and orthobiologics and because it would burn no bridges and potential be effective, a stem cell injection was agreed upon as the best choice for her at this time.
The use of these products in orthobiologics is not illegal. Selling and promoting them as actual stem cell injections would mean that they have been approved by the FDA as a biologic drug…..and none of these products have passed that standard. Patients need to be very sure of what they are paying for with orthobiologic procedures so that they aren’t charged and given a procedure that is not what was advertised!
One of the giraffes at the Cheyenne Mountain has the giraffes equivalent of knee arthritis and just received a stem cell injection and a new pair of tennis shoes (Yeezy’s I am sure…)
