An Alternative to Knee Surgery- Regenerative Cellular Therapies
Regenerative cell treatments and PRP may offer an
unconventional alternative to knee surgery or knee
replacement.
Medica Stem Cells regenerative treatments are minimally
invasive non-surgical procedures. Treatments provide
long-lasting relief from symptoms with minimal
downtime and enhance recovery within a short period
using your own body's healing power to treat knee
arthritis and knee-related injuries. Our patients benefit
from reduced pain and enhanced functionality of the
knee without undergoing surgery or knee replacement.
Can Regenerative Therapy Revitalize Your Knee Joint Without Surgery?
Imagine climbing the stairs where your knee catches and buckles with severe ache. What
happens if you fall unexpectedly and if you are unable to get up? You may not be ready to
consult a physician as you would have seen your relatives spent more on procedures that did
not prove to be effective.
No worries! We are here to help you understand your natural healing mechanism through
regenerative cellular therapies. It is time to get back to your active life without knee surgery!
Before we go through the potential knee problems and treatment, let us know the anatomy
and working mechanism of the knee joint.
Knee Joint Anatomy
Knee Joint Anatomy
• The knee joint is composed of bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bursal sac. All these parts work with coordination to
help us walk, jump, and bend down.
• Bones: There are three types of bones in the knee, namely femur, tibia, and patella. The knee joint connects the tibia (shin
bone) and the femur (thigh bone), including a protective bony cover named patella (kneecap). Femur and tibia end as a
rounded protuberance named condyle, which forms the part of the knee joint.
• Knee cartilage is otherwise called as the knee meniscus. There are two types of knee meniscus, namely medial (inside) and
lateral (outside). It is located between the femur and the tibia. It helps in distributing the body weight and protects the
bones from friction.
• Tendons connect bone to muscle. There are two types of tendons, namely quadriceps tendon and patellar tendon. The
quadriceps tendon connects the patella to the large thigh muscle named quadriceps muscle. The patellar tendon attaches
to the tibia.
• Ligaments hold bones or cartilage together. There are two types of ligaments, namely anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and
the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). ACL lies at the front part of the knee joint while PCL lies at the back. They hold femur
and tibia together to stabilize the knee joint.
• Bursa sac consists of lubricating fluid that remains as a cushion between the bones in the knee joint to reduce friction.
The Function of Knee joint
• Imagine a door that opens and closes with the help of a hinge. Similarly, the knee joint is considered as a flexible hinge that
aids in mobility. You can normally move your leg in front-to-back and side-to-side motion. In case of improper joint
movement due to worn-out shoes or trauma, acute knee injuries may occur.
• Similarly, the knee is also considered as the weight-bearing joint. It is the knee joint that balances a person’s weight. In the
case of obesity, excess pressure falls on the knee joint, which may lead to cartilage damage, degeneration, or wear and tear.

What is the principle of regenerative cell therapy?
• Your body can heal by itself. That is the motto of regenerative cell therapy. Let us see how the body heals.
• If you cut your finger, it bleeds. It then forms a scab like structure. Ultimately, it is the healing cell beneath the scab that
seals the injury and stop the bleeding. Similarly, your body can also examine the signs of damage and repair them using its
healing cells.
• Regenerative cell therapy is a non-surgical procedure that provides long-lasting relief from the symptoms with minimal
downtime and enhances recovery within a short period. It has no side effects since the injection involves your blood. So,
there is no chance of rejection or cross-transmission of disease.
Advancement of regenerative therapy over
conventional methods
• A study published in NPJ Regenerative Medicine revealed that regenerative cell therapy may provide better pain relief
compared to NSAIDs drugs and corticosteroid injections [1].
• Recent research shows that provides more long-term relief from joint pain and enhances the quality of life in a shorter
duration compared to corticosteroid injections. People may think that PRP injection is just like a cortisone shot. But it is not
so. Long-term administration of cortisone injections will suppress the body’s natural healing mechanism and leads to knee
replacement surgery in the future. But PRP therapy repairs the injured tissue by naturally promoting your body’s healing
function. Hence, you need not have to undergo surgery in your later stage [2].
• Surgery may promote knee degeneration which leads to undergoing the same surgery once again in the future. Additionally,
the incidence of pain after the surgery is high around 20%, in addition to anaesthesia and surgery associated risks. With the
advent of PRP therapy, surgery can be easily avoided [4].
• So, what are you waiting for? Turn back the clock and start leading an active pain-free life by opting for regenerative cell
therapy!
If you feel you may benefit from
regenerative therapies, please contact us
at our London clinic on
020 8 168 2000 or our Ireland clinic on
01 298 8000 to book a consultation or
request a callback today!
We will take a close look at your case and
evaluate if you are a qualified candidate
for regenerative therapy.

  • 1. An Alternative to Knee Surgery- Regenerative Cellular Therapies
  • 2. Regenerative cell treatments and PRP may offer an unconventional alternative to knee surgery or knee replacement. Medica Stem Cells regenerative treatments are minimally invasive non-surgical procedures. Treatments provide long-lasting relief from symptoms with minimal downtime and enhance recovery within a short period using your own body's healing power to treat knee arthritis and knee-related injuries. Our patients benefit from reduced pain and enhanced functionality of the knee without undergoing surgery or knee replacement.
  • 3. Can Regenerative Therapy Revitalize Your Knee Joint Without Surgery? Imagine climbing the stairs where your knee catches and buckles with severe ache. What happens if you fall unexpectedly and if you are unable to get up? You may not be ready to consult a physician as you would have seen your relatives spent more on procedures that did not prove to be effective. No worries! We are here to help you understand your natural healing mechanism through regenerative cellular therapies. It is time to get back to your active life without knee surgery! Before we go through the potential knee problems and treatment, let us know the anatomy and working mechanism of the knee joint.
  • 5. Knee Joint Anatomy • The knee joint is composed of bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bursal sac. All these parts work with coordination to help us walk, jump, and bend down. • Bones: There are three types of bones in the knee, namely femur, tibia, and patella. The knee joint connects the tibia (shin bone) and the femur (thigh bone), including a protective bony cover named patella (kneecap). Femur and tibia end as a rounded protuberance named condyle, which forms the part of the knee joint. • Knee cartilage is otherwise called as the knee meniscus. There are two types of knee meniscus, namely medial (inside) and lateral (outside). It is located between the femur and the tibia. It helps in distributing the body weight and protects the bones from friction. • Tendons connect bone to muscle. There are two types of tendons, namely quadriceps tendon and patellar tendon. The quadriceps tendon connects the patella to the large thigh muscle named quadriceps muscle. The patellar tendon attaches to the tibia. • Ligaments hold bones or cartilage together. There are two types of ligaments, namely anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). ACL lies at the front part of the knee joint while PCL lies at the back. They hold femur and tibia together to stabilize the knee joint. • Bursa sac consists of lubricating fluid that remains as a cushion between the bones in the knee joint to reduce friction.
  • 6. The Function of Knee joint • Imagine a door that opens and closes with the help of a hinge. Similarly, the knee joint is considered as a flexible hinge that aids in mobility. You can normally move your leg in front-to-back and side-to-side motion. In case of improper joint movement due to worn-out shoes or trauma, acute knee injuries may occur. • Similarly, the knee is also considered as the weight-bearing joint. It is the knee joint that balances a person’s weight. In the case of obesity, excess pressure falls on the knee joint, which may lead to cartilage damage, degeneration, or wear and tear.
  • 7. Common knee joint problems Knee JointProblems Knee bursitis (Bursa inflammation) Tendonitis (Tendon inflammation) Osteoarthritis (degenerative knee joint disease) Torn meniscus (cartilage wear and tear) Knee ligament tear (ACL/PCL injury) Knee bone spur Fracture/sprained knee Iliotibial band (ITB) syndrome – Knee pain due to worn- out or poorly fitting shoes Hamstring injury (Tear of the tendons or muscles at the back of the thigh) Other sports- related injuries such as athlete injury, football or soccer injury

  • 9. What is the principle of regenerative cell therapy? • Your body can heal by itself. That is the motto of regenerative cell therapy. Let us see how the body heals. • If you cut your finger, it bleeds. It then forms a scab like structure. Ultimately, it is the healing cell beneath the scab that seals the injury and stop the bleeding. Similarly, your body can also examine the signs of damage and repair them using its healing cells. • Regenerative cell therapy is a non-surgical procedure that provides long-lasting relief from the symptoms with minimal downtime and enhances recovery within a short period. It has no side effects since the injection involves your blood. So, there is no chance of rejection or cross-transmission of disease.
  • 10. Advancement of regenerative therapy over conventional methods • A study published in NPJ Regenerative Medicine revealed that regenerative cell therapy may provide better pain relief compared to NSAIDs drugs and corticosteroid injections [1]. • Recent research shows that provides more long-term relief from joint pain and enhances the quality of life in a shorter duration compared to corticosteroid injections. People may think that PRP injection is just like a cortisone shot. But it is not so. Long-term administration of cortisone injections will suppress the body’s natural healing mechanism and leads to knee replacement surgery in the future. But PRP therapy repairs the injured tissue by naturally promoting your body’s healing function. Hence, you need not have to undergo surgery in your later stage [2]. • Surgery may promote knee degeneration which leads to undergoing the same surgery once again in the future. Additionally, the incidence of pain after the surgery is high around 20%, in addition to anaesthesia and surgery associated risks. With the advent of PRP therapy, surgery can be easily avoided [4]. • So, what are you waiting for? Turn back the clock and start leading an active pain-free life by opting for regenerative cell therapy!
