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".

We like to do everything possible to rebuild the knee joint with biologic tissues rather than artificial materials to help delay the time in which an artificial joint replacement is necessary.
Athletic Approach to Knee Replacement
Artificial knee replacement surgery used to mean the reduction of sports activities like golf, swimming, and cycling. Yet with severe arthritis affecting younger and younger people, we are currently pushing the envelope of sports participation with joint replacements and learning as we go.
New ways to heal joints can keep us fitter as we age
If we live longer, will our joints still work? While many diseases can kill you, arthritis has the potential to ruin your long life.
