Have you been feeling aches and pains in your joints? Noticing that “Father Time” has been knocking on your door? Or those simple tasks such as walking up a flight of stairs, lifting grocery bags or even taking a jump shot have now become daunting or next to impossible tasks? Well, you don’t have to fret any longer; thanks to innovative new procedures in regenerative medicine you can once again perform those tasks at ease.
Procedures such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Autologous adipose (fat) – derived stem / stromal cell (AD – SC) therapy is an effective regenerative treatment used to repair damaged musculoskeletal connective tissue ranging from ligaments, tendons, cartilage, discs, muscles, nerve tissue, bone, etc. The wonderful aspect of these types of treatment is not only can they be performed within a doctor’s office rather than a hospital setting, but that this treatment avoids invasive surgical procedures such as knee, hip or shoulder replacements which also subsequently require weeks if not months of physical therapy rehabilitation. Wouldn’t you rather prefer a simple injection as opposed to a hack-and-saw treatment? In addition, if you’re curious about how the physician will know where to administer the injection, have no fear because the procedures are performed under ultrasound guidance which allow for accurate needle placement.
If you need some proof on how effective PRP or AD-SC therapy is you can ask certain sports stars like, Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods, Rafael Nadal,Alex Rodriguez or even Hulk Hogan to name a few. The proponents of these innovative, non-invasive regenerative medicine surgical procedures demonstrate, that if these individuals whose job requires strenuous physical activity not only underwent these procedures hoping to return to the job they love, but they had returned to their respective sports fields new and improved.

PRP And Stem Cells To Heal Complex Knee Injuries
As a Physical Medicine physician, it is my speciality to treat complex orthopedic injuries without the use of surgery. After 30 years as a practicing doctor in New York City, the best treatments with the highest success rates are PRP and Stem Cell Therapy.
Stem Cells are found everywhere in the body and are a vital part of the body’s regeneration process. Wherever there is a break down of tissue in the body, stem cells are signaled to the area and transform into the type of tissue the body needs to be fully mobile once again.
In the cases of severe and traumatic injuries, there aren't enough stem cells to repair the full extent of damage in the knee and the patient is therefore left with a disabling injury, immobility, and chronic pain. Applying either PRP or Stem Cell Therapy is a way to replace damaged tissue with healthy tissue.
When there is a partial tear of the ACL, MCL, and/or LCL, orthopedic surgeons often recommend surgery. Unfortunately, surgery is extremely risky and invasive. The doctor must open the knee and re-close it which adds to the injury. There are many months of painful rehabilitation and often times, the knee doesn’t even become fully healed.
Significantly Reduce Knee Pain
Stem Cell Therapy is non-surgical and is often an effective alternative treatment to surgery. It is accomplished through a simple injection. There is almost zero risk of infection and no additional rehabilitation with this procedure. There are no hospital visits or overnight stays and a high success rate to significantly reduce the amount of pain experienced.
At the very least, it is crucial to try Stem Cell Therapy before getting surgery because in a variety of cases, Stem Cell Therapy has helped patients completely avoid surgery by healing the damaged tissue in their knee.
PRP Therapy is another strategic knee treatment to heal complex knee injuries. Using the growth factors in PRP, tissue regeneration occurs repairing damaged blood vessels and replacing old damaged knee tissue with healthy new tissue.
Dr. Benjamin Bieber is a New York physician with over 30 years of experience and after treating tens of thousands of patients is confident that Stem Cell Therapy has tremendous benefits and potential to heal complex knee injuries. It can accelerate the recovery process giving you that extra boost that you need to achieve full healing without the use of surgery.
