I have been bothered by osteoarthritis in my knees for over 15 years. I hve had many treatments over the years including physical therapy, cortisone injections, Supartz injections and a total knee right replacement in July of 2013. In early 2017, my left knee became too painful to walk on, I visited my orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Kevin Crawford, D.O. to discuss the most recent treatments available. I had extensive travel plans in the upcoming months and did not want to face another knee replacement nor did I have the time for the lengthy recover following one. Dr. Crawford explained his work with stem cell therapy in recent years and I was more than interested. On April 19, 2017 I underwent the Native Stem Cell therapy treatment. I found the procedure painless, the “recovery period” was a breeze. I traveled to Europe in late summer and Colorado in early fall; both without any limitations and extensive walking which would not have been possible prior to the therapy. I highly recommend this treatment to anyone suffering similar osteoarthiritis problems.
