Maryclaire, age 64, had been struggling for years with debilitating knee pain in both knees. The pain has been causing a limp and severely restricting her basic movements, such as walking and climbing stairs. Since the onset of pain, she has not been able to exercise, and is gaining weight as a result. As a former ballet dancer, she was previously a very active person and one who desperately wanted to enjoy some of the simple pleasures in life, pain free.
After Doctors offered No Hope, other than Permanent Surgery with a Total Knee Replacement, with all of its risks, she decided to explore alternative treatments, with MedicalMasters.org in Bonita Springs, FL.
After a Comprehensive Medical Exam, or what is called a 100-Point Health Check Up, Dr. Steve Coleman D.O., confirmed that she would be a good candidate for same-day stem cell treatment. Although she was a bit afraid of the procedure, she made the courageous decision to try something different, something more than just a traditional, invasive surgery.
The 3 hour, Level 1 procedure (No general anesthetic, done under sterile conditions), involves the pain free harvest of her very own cellular material, including PRP from Blood, Her Own Fat Cells, and Bone Marrow. Her own cells are then re-injected back into both knees, with a very advanced technique, specific to Prolotherapy Trained Physicians.
No manipulation of her Native Cells was performed. No Drugs, other than anticoagulants and anesthetics were used.
While results will differ from patient to patient, most people treated by Dr. Coleman have significantly positive results within one to three weeks. In the short term, significant worsening of pain, is quite normal but not universal.
Longer term results, over six to nine months, generally offer even greater mobility and pain reductions for patients undergoing stem cell therapy.
“I am ecstatic! I am walking perfectly and pain free just two weeks or so after the initial procedures. My left knee has virtually no symptoms at all, while my right has some slight discomfort but is dramatically improved. It’s quite incredible,” said Maryclair.
“If we are able to help patients have less pain, and perform activities of daily living with less limitations, that is a Win-Win situation, for one human being.
“If we can do all that while lessening surgical risks, and reducing massive costs to the healthcare system, it is a Triple Win for patients and society”.
“In Maryclaire’s case I am extremely grateful, that her results are ahead of schedule, and I hope to help keep her dancing for years to come,” said Dr. Coleman.
