Surfer in LA Consults Dr. Lox for Knee Stem Cells
A multi-extreme sport surfer consulted Dr. Dennis Lox at his Los Angeles (LA), California office in Beverly Hills for knee pain. He was diagnosed with a knee meniscal tear and desired to avoid surgery and stay competitive. Dr. Lox has treated professional athletes in various sports who failed to improve with stem cell therapy. Some of the athletes had even failed to respond to surgery and were released from their team. Failure to improve when an athlete has knee pain can mean the end of a career. Most athletes wish to remain in sports or return to sports competition as soon as possible. Alternatives to knee surgery such as Regenerative Medicine strategies Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy may be viable options for some athletes. An experienced physician in Sports and Regenerative Medicine is invaluable to an athletes career or successful career longevity. Younger athletes sometimes as the same goes "youth is wasted on the young". In Regenerative Medicine and the utilization of stem cell therapy, younger patients think injuries will get better, or arthritis only happens to the elderly. The concept of post-traumatic osteoarthritis is unknown except to the experts in the world of Regenerative Medicine, and a select group of enlightened physicians and researchers in the field. Helping younger athletes with injuries such as knee pain and knee meniscal tears is a common practice of Dr. Lox.
Dr. Lox advocates educating patients to make informed decisions about their own health care. Dr. Dennis lox may be reached for the evaluation of knee pain and knee meniscal tears at his Los Angeles (LA), California area office in Beverly Hills at (310) 975-7033
