Re: Looking to treat severe knee medial compartment OA

Ubercool, thanks for the updates. If memory holds, you were (almost) bone on bone so as we discussed stems were iffy but generally would not do harm other than $$. So how do you assess the BMAC's effectiveness ~ 10 months post-op? The fact you were looking at TKR is perhaps a clue but you postponed ...

Re: Regenexx stem-cell procedure to treat severe knee medial compartment OA

Thanks for updating us, ubercool. For your case research points to statistically significant pain improvement up to the 3 month mark, then maybe a little more improvement months 4-9, plateauing from there, and finally wearing off after yr 2. Varies by individual, of course. Watched Dr Goodwin's vide...

Re: Looking to treat severe knee medial compartment OA

Thanks for this tidbit of info, ubercool, wasn't aware. This is a regulatory debate that I am not qualified to comment on. I could not get the full article in AJSM that is in Dr Centeno's crosshairs. I have read a fair bit of hardcore FDA regulations and in his analysis Dr Centeno does use the key r...

Re: Looking to treat severe knee medial compartment OA

Thanks for the update, ubercool. What you've decided to do has no meaningful downside so from a risk perspective you should be ok. The upside in your case of severe KOA is debatable, esp. the prolo part. Things have been rather quiet in terms of stem cell experience reports over the past year or two...

Re: Looking to treat severe knee medial compartment OA

Ubercool, Prompt and fulsome response by Dr Goodwin earns respect. Good to learn osteoporosis does not result in complications with bone marrow harvest. The two So Korean products that are winding through trials are JointStem by Nature Cell/Rbio and the temporarily named SMUP-IA-01 by Medipost. Join...

Re: Looking to treat severe knee medial compartment OA

Ubercool, thanks for the detailed update. Like Lipogems, Regenexx is quite standardized. Not sure of all the business details but stands to reason there is branding and maybe franchising involved. To be able to say/offer Regenexx other docs adhere to specs Dr Centeno has developed for all Regenexx f...

Re: Looking to treat severe knee medial compartment OA

Ouch, that's rather steep, ubercool. I am inclined to think this is a money grab. Had not heard of Zofin itself, appears to still be in the trial phase. Will explore further over the weekend. The cell-free concept itself is not new, already available in Germany (e.g. Anova IRM). Have reservations SV...

Re: Looking to treat severe knee medial compartment OA

Hi ubercool, I exchanged e-mails with Dr. Slynarski, he was very prompt in replying. Dr. Slynarski is one of Dr. Tremolada's early "disciples", if I can say so. Curiously, he no longer lists Lipogems on his website but he did confirm to me he still does Lipogems. Dr. Slynarski is on my sho...

Re: Looking to treat severe knee medial compartment OA

Ubercool, sorry for taking me some time to get back to this lively thread - I have been monitoring posts but too many balls in the air to respond properly. From your x-rays the left knee appears to be bone-on-bone medially and this is the likely source of your pain. Can't detect the osteophytes but ...

Re: Looking to treat severe knee medial compartment OA

Thanks for the update, ubercool. On Dr. Purita : I have no personal experience but his name has popped up in the forum in the past. Search the archives. I seem to recall he dabbled in human growth hormone in the past but may have had his knuckles rapped. Flying cross-country for follow-up PRP shots,...

Re: Looking to treat severe knee medial compartment OA

Ubercool, I had read this study in Sep. 2021 and now re-read it so I can comment while fresh. I won't dwell on the fact the study design is a prospective case series, i.e. lower level of evidence (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3124652/). The study was good in that it tried to answer a...

Re: Looking to treat severe knee medial compartment OA

Ubercool, thank you very much for sharing this! I wish you a successful and effective MFAT procedure. To the best of my knowledge no one in this forum has reported Lipogems experience with the doctor who invented it. You are going to the top! With respect to repeating in 2-3 years, par for the cours...

Re: Looking to treat severe knee medial compartment OA

Ubercool, thanks for the update and Happy New Year to you, too. It is good to get 2-3 recommendations and then decide which one to take up. I'd be all ears as to what Dr. Tremolada says, you certainly aim for the top players globally. An interesting study was published last year on the efficacy of M...

Re: This is my short story

The original poster's problems are with the contralateral knee. The meniscus work was done on the right knee, three months later the pain with the left knee started. If the meniscus on the right knee was indeed repaired (vs resected), this suggests the poster is young (<35 yo). Nevertheless, there m...
