BioKnee Patient testimonial

Share this post

Cross fit competitor had been told he'd need a total knee replacement in 10 years. He refused to believe it and sought out Dr. Stone who rebuilt his knee using biologic treatments. He had injured his ACL college football, and thought he had recovered but 2-3 years afterwards he developed severe knee pain, until he couldn't sit down or stand up without pain. 
He had a lateral meniscectomy. The doctor told him that he could probably live on it for another 10 years but by age 40 he would need a total knee replacement. "I refused to accept that, and went to do the research and found The Stone Clinic" He had an over the phone consultation. "I told him what my doctors said. Dr. Stone immediately disagreed, which made me very happy! I literally flew across the world so that Dr. Stone could fix my knee. I had an articular cartilage paste graft, a lateral meniscus transplant and an ACL revision. He gave me more or less a new knee".

Knees do not necessarily wear out evenly, sometimes one part of the knee is perfectly fine while another part is completely destroyed. If only part of the knee joint is worn out, why replace all of it?
We all do stupid things. I try not to do them too often. And I try to limit my stupid activities to those with minimal consequences.
