Knee MRI

This is an MRI of a 40 year old white female who returned to full function without pain at her six month follow up.

The image on the left shows the ACL in between these yellow triangles is totally blown out. It should be nice and dark. In fact it should look like the image on the after image – a nice dark band going diagonally.  No surgery was performed on this patient. This was the result of the precise injection of her bone marrow concentrate which contained her own stem cells.

ACL Tear Injuries

These are examples of patients who instead of having ACL reconstruction surgery chose to have a precise injection of the patient’s own bone marrow concentrate, which contained their stem cells, into the ACL.

Meniscus Injuries

These are examples of patients who instead of having a meniscoctomy chose to have a precise injection of their own bone marrow concentrate, which contained their stem cells, into the meniscus.
