Articular Cartilage Paste Graft patient story - 2 years post op

Share this post

Our patient has had knee issues since he was a teenager. (Knee cap dislocation repair, ACL replacement and microfracture surgery to repair damaged articular cartilage.) The microfracture was a temporary solution and not long afterwards he couldn't ski, walk or climb stairs without pain. Two years prior to this testimonial, Dr. Stone performed an articular cartilage stem cell paste graft to repair the damaged cartilage. Now he's training for a triathlon. His knee is doing great. " I swim 2k twice a week. I bike 20k everyday and once a week I bike 75k. I run 5k two or three times a week...all this stuff I could never do." ..... "It's been life changing."

Fix a meniscus to avoid arthritis
A recent study suggested that meniscus surgery doesn't help. Studies can be misleading. Even small losses of meniscus tissue lead to big changes in force concentration on the tibia (shin bone) and eventually arthritis.
Time to Stop
“Push through the pain.” “No pain, no gain,” we were told in our youth. These are outside voices – but listening to your body and knowing when to stop is the key to diminishing self-inflicted injuries and lengthening your sports career.
In high school and even earlier, serious athletes are continuing to train year-round in their single sport. The result? A loss in general fitness and an increased injuries. CrossFit’s training platform may be the antidote.
