Meet CL

volleyball player 300x195 - Athlete Avoids ACL Surgery with Stem Cell Procedure


CL is a 13-year-old volleyball athlete from Texas who sustained full rupture of her ACL after landing incorrectly. She was devastated as volleyball was an important part her life. CL and her parents declined surgery repair and traveled to Centeno-Schultz Clinic, where she underwent a bone marrow aspirate to collect her stem cells. Later that same day, her own stem cells were reinjected into the damaged ACL. Thereafter, she wore a knee brace for six weeks and completed specific physical therapy to strengthen her knee.

At six months following her stem cell injection at Centeno-Schultz Clinic, CL has no limitations, pain, or restrictions. Her MRI tells the story as depicted below. On the left is her MRI before the stem cells; whereas, the MRI on the right is after stem cells. The ACL is outlined in red and has significantly changed from torn and poorly disorganized to repaired and uniform. The radiologist read the ACL as normal. Congratulations, CL!
