Regenerative Orthopedic case of the week – March 7, 2023

Dr. Steve Meyers
March 7, 2023

59 year old male with 2 month history of progressive left hip pain. Pain deep in the groin extending to the buttock. Pain with standing, walking, getting up from a chair causing him to limp. Xrays showed significant hip arthritis. MRI showed arthritis in addition to a subchondral insufficiency fracture with bone swelling. (As arthritis progresses, the bone can weaken and eventually crack, like cracking an egg shell.)

After discussing treatment options, he elected to proceed with regenerative treatment injecting stem cells harvested from fat tissue into the joint and PRP (platelet rich plasma) into the bone to generate a healing response.

Today, his pain is decreased from 8 out of 10 down to one! He is walking without limp or pain and has been able to return to light exercise at the gym without difficulties.
