Injection treatment options in Ontario Canada for cartilage/anterior knee pain

Post by Kefu »

I was wondering what are some injection treatment options in Ontario Canada for knee pain, cartilage damage, patella femoral pain, chondromalacia patella, etc...

I have read through the forums, and their are a lot of options in the USA such as:
1) Dr. Hauser (chicago) -prolotherapy, PRP, stem cell injections, he even adds some growth hormones for extra money sometimes apparently
2) Dr. Alan Dunn (Florida) - IAGH
3) Dr. Centenno (Colorado) -Regenexx
4) Dr. David Tallman (Phoenix) - Prolotherapy, PRP, Stem cell injections, growth hormone injections (HGH and testosterone)

Some injection treatment options I have found in Ontario include:
1) Dr Robert Banner (London) - Prolozone
2) Dr. Gordon KO (markham) - botox, PRP, prolotherapy, hyaluronic acid

If anyone could give some more information of other doctors who give knee injections to help reduce pain and heal cartilage in Ontario Canada, please let me know.

I'm basically in the same boat as you. I asked for my family doctor to refer me to a Dr. Nguyen. (Nguyen Sports Med) He's based out of the west end of Toronto. Still waiting on a call from them though..... :-\

I had IAGH injections in my left knee. Dr. Dunn claimed I had full cartilage regrowth from his injections, but I had a follow up MRI that showed zero cartilage growth. I think IAGH is a complete waste of money.
