These procedures would have cost $40k per knee private sector, but they didnít do anything for me. Ergo, Iím glad I didnít waste $80k of my own money chasing the dragon.
Thank you for sharing the experience. Iíve been following this therapy option for years as I plan to get it myself. The concern is the one done in US cannot be stem cell rich source due to FDA limitation of fetus-derived product. Also afaik thereís no way to control the cells to generate into cartilage only n not into bones, which worsens the condition. Thus the only thing left is the anti inflammatory (pain reduction) benefits. You did not experience that either?
