Knee Cartilage Regeneration. Stem Cells for Cartilage Repair, Part 1. Stem cell therapy for knees is a minimally invasive procedure that has the potential to decrease inflammation, halt the progression of the arthritic damage, repair joint cartilage, and delay or avoid knee replacement surgery.
Then, how much does stem cell therapy for knees cost?
ONE Stem Cell - Procedure using Fat OR Bone Marrow STARTS at $5,000 for the first joint. TWO Stem Cells - SmartChoice® Premier Procedure using BOTH Fat AND Bone Marrow Cells STARTS at 6,500 for the first joint. Stem Cell Procedures for additional joints treated at the same time cost $1,500 to $2,500 each.
Can stem cell therapy regrow cartilage?
Can Stem Cells Regenerate Cartilage? Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can naturally transform into many tissues including bone, cartilage, and fibrous tissue. Of the two, there's much better evidence that bone marrow MSCs can help regenerate cartilage than fat MSCs.
Is stem cell treatment expensive?
Clinic profits are difficult to estimate and vary depending on the type of stem cells and other factors such as malpractice insurance cost. However, I have heard estimates of the clinics' own costs being around $1,000-$2,000 per treatment, yielding a very high profit margin.
