Your nonsurgical alternative to knee replacement has arrived.

Your nonsurgical alternative to knee replacement has arrived.

You are an active weekend warrior. Your ideal fun weekend would include tennis, some jogging or golfing 18 holes. That is, if your arthritic knees could handle it, and they can’t anymore because your knee joint feels like bone scraping on bone. Even walking some days can be excruciating.

Worse, your orthopedic surgeon has told you that your only option is a total knee replacement surgery. You’re hoping to delay surgery as long as possible, so you are stuck with knees that make climbing stairs or walking across a large parking lot appear as a daunting, excruciating journey. Small comfort in that you see others your age hobbling around, as osteoarthritis affects more than 32.5 million people in the United States. According to federal data, 754,000 knee replacements and 448,000 hip replacements are done each year.

Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy

Thankfully, for the educated healthcare consumer there is new hope with the emergence over the last 10 years of a new treatment called “regenerative stem cell therapy” that repurposes a person’s own fat tissue stem cells to improve pain and function of an arthritic knee. 

Fat tissue – taken from a person’s own belly region using liposuction – contains the body’s natural healing stem cells and growth factors which help to restore the knee joint so that activities are less painful.

The importance of regenerative stem cell therapy is that it buys people time with their natural knee joint so they can delay the need for major knee replacement surgery OR avoid knee surgery altogether.

Steve Meyers, MD is a fellowship trained sports medicine physician that has been safely performing regenerative procedures in Fort Worth since 2007.

The Process

The process begins by harvesting adipose tissue (fat) from your own body using liposuction from your belly region. The adipose tissue is ALWAYS HARVESTED FROM YOU, never from another person or tissue bank.

Dr. Meyers then processes the tissue and injects the fat tissue stem cells into your arthritic knee. This is done the same day, without general anesthesia, and is precisely guided by ultrasound to deliver the cells directly into the damaged area of the joint. The result is improved pain and function in addition to some healing of cartilage damage.

Using regenerative stem cell therapy, Dr. Meyers has helped patients from all over the country get back on their feet enjoying movement without pain — the same goal as total knee replacement but without the surgery.

    My Practice Philosophy

    When I meet a new patient who is curious about how I practice Non-Operative Orthopedics, I tell them that in everything I do, from the first visit through follow up, I will treat them how I would want to be treated myself. As a former competitive athlete and an active adventure seeker today, I know first hand how much life can change with an injury or degenerative issue. My goal is to help your body recover from your injury, avoid re-injury and get you back into the game of life as soon as possible.
