What Causes Torn Meniscus?

Surrounding your kneecap and shin bone is a rubbery cartilage called the meniscus, which acts as both a stabilizer and shock absorber to the knee. The torn meniscus is when the knee is forcefully twisted like from a sports injury. While, thankfully, not a dislocation of the knee, it does occur when pressure is applied to the knee (like shifting your body weight to that side) coupled with a vigorous twist.

Symptoms

Your knee is essentially a hinge joint, so when that joint becomes locked, it is a telltale sign that something is wrong. Other symptoms of a torn meniscus can include swelling, pain in a specific area (or multiple areas) throughout the knee joint, abnormal popping and sudden difficulty walking or moving the knee as you normally would.

Get a non-invasive treatment

For the different types of elbow pain, you have about the same number of options for a treatment, but not all of them will actually work. For instance, surgery was shown to be as ineffective as placebo while steroids and physical therapy were not much better. As an alternative, stem cell and platelet therapies target the problem areas the most accurately and are able to fully regenerate your damaged cells without invasive surgery.

Stem Cell Therapy Explained

As is the case with a number of injuries, stem cell injections are one of the most universally praised treatments for a torn meniscus. Not every tear is able to heal on its own, and not every tear can be surgically repaired, so a procedure that repairs the meniscus naturally is your best option. With nearly 30 years of using the procedure to treat professional athletes, injections of the body’s natural stem cells have proven to be the most accurate, effective and non-invasive solution for torn or damaged meniscus tissue through the process of stem cell therapy.

How Does It Work?

  1. Stem Cell Extraction
  2. Concentration and Activation
  3. Stem Cells Transplanted to Problem Area
  4. The Cells Reduce Pain

PRP Therapy Explained

PRP injections use each individual patient’s own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each individual patient’s own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems. These injections are an in-office procedure, and the entire procedure from start to finish takes about 30 minutes.

How Does It Work?

  1. Take a Blood Sample
  2. Separate Blood into Various Components
  3. Removes Platelets and Stem Cells
  4. Platelets Injected into Injured Area

Doctor Examination + Tests

While the condition commonly renders the knee joints immobile, a simple physical examination will determine the problem areas more precisely and directly. Your doctor will likely ask you to curl your toes to test how far the knee can still move as well as rotating your leg as you hold it straight forward, examining both the lateral and the medial meniscus.

Preparing for your appointment

After the physical examination with your doctor for your tailored treatment, you can expect to have the procedure fully finished as early as the same day. Making this procedure as smooth and effective as possible requires nothing more than drinking water (64 ounces a day for at least 2 days), stopping blood thinners and anti-inflammatory meds the week before and a light, natural sedative taken only once, shortly before your procedure.

The procedure itself avoids pain and can be done in less than a hour, resulting in a number of patients literally walking out of the operating room once it is finished.

Rehabilitation

The recovery is just as easy as the procedure itself while only being a few weeks longer. You could actually be able to walk back into your job after about a day, but it is advised not to engage in strenuous exercise until about 5 weeks (on average) after the procedure.

I had adipose stem cell last year. PRP after 3 months. Came back to follow up this year. I am pain free for a year. No swelling any longer since the procedure. Have not taken Ibuprofen for my knee. Been hiking again between 3-7 miles with no swelling afterwards. Wanted to get PRP again today, thinking it will make it better than what I already have. Already on the table, Dr Mohajer, send me home. He said, No need. You don’t have pain, then No need for the procedure. This Clinic is full of Honesty. Dr Padi did the same thing. I will definitely come back, not even for my knee but face prp.

I was referred to doctor Bady by a friend and got a free consultation. My experience was wonderful. The office is clean , staffs are warm and kind and welcoming. Dr came in on time and he listened to everything I wanted to say and ask him. He told me my options and all the pros and cons on each case . I need to get an MRI so he can determine which treatment is the best for me. I really loved it here . Did I mentioned the staff are so helpful? 😉 I will recommend this office and Dr Bady to everyone who can benefit from him .

I went to Cellaxys for my knee pain. Doctor Bady is amazing. He extracted the fluid in my knee and injected with PRP which gave me a lot of relief. He then sent me for an MRI and I'm going back for stem cell procedure. Everyone at this office is professional and very helpful. They go out of their way to truly help the patients which is not easy to find in Vegas.

I've dealt with shoulder pain for years but refused to do shoulder surgery. Tried everything from chiropractor to physical therapy but nothing helped until I came across Cellaxys. They did a stem cell procedure on my shoulders and my pain is GONE! Only a few short weeks and my pain went down to 0. I'm so happy with my results and recommend cellaxys to everyone who's looking for an alternative to surgery.

Had five knee operations. Surgeons just kept cutting torn meniscus, grinding arthritis. Knee hurt all the time, misery. Saw ad about Stem Cell from Cellaxys. Took my MRIs into Dr. Otten. I’m 65 and been active all my life. My knee was making it unable to do anything. Dr. Otten said I was a perfect candidate for stem cell. I was skeptical, but knee replacement only thing left. Had Stem Cell procedure done at end of October 2021. Had major swelling which isn’t always normal. Gradually my knee started feeling better and better. Range of motion improved. Today is Jan 6, 2022. Just walked 3.5 miles. Pain FREE! Have a booster PRP shot coming up which is included in the price. Dr. Otten returned several calls when I was having swelling, unheard of from other Doctors. Stem Cell isn’t covered by insurance, but, it’s absolutely amazing. A big Thumbs up to Dr. Otten and Staff. Best money I’ve ever spent.

I was greeted warmly the moment I entered. Doctor Otten is charming and very thorough in explaining the procedure. Carlos explained the finances involved very carefully and is most courteous, professional and patient. I have confidence in CELLAXYS and this will be the first time in my life I eagerly await having a medical procedure done!

Dr. Otten is the best!! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. My wife had several procedures done on her knees and back from a traumatic fall and with the help from Dr. Otten and Biologics…she has benefitted greatly from the treatments. Because of her recovery and the incredible care Dr. Otten gave her…after I tore my Achilles Tendon I knew Dr. Otten was the phone call I needed to make. Although I live in Florida now, it was worth the travel back to Las Vegas for treatment with Dr. Otten at Cellaxys. The care is unparalleled. I am still in the recovery process but can attest to the confidence that the biologic therapy is helping with my healing. Dr. Otten is the most caring, thoughtful and empathic doctor that has you and your recovery as a priority. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

The entire staff from the second I walked in, was warm and friendly and caring. No waiting, imagine that! I was escorted into a room where the doctor had already been reviewing my x-rays and had them up to share with me. No secrets here. The doctor himself sat down with me immediately and listened to my history and my pain and then discussed my X-rays and showed me how he could help. He explained the three types of stem cell Therapies and let me choose what I wanted and then he explained to me the process from the moment I would walk in until the moment I would leave Plus he was very candid on my recovery time and what I could and could not do. I will have a two-week follow-up and then a booster in 3 months. I feel like everyone there is my friend.

The doctor was very professional, knowledgeable and took the time to explain all the different options available to me. I like that he took the TIME to know exactly what was going on with my knees. He didn't rush through the appointment, which was refreshing considering that's how it is with a lot of doctor appointments these. days.Every step of the way he explained what was going on. I've had zero issues all the way through to the end. And now a year or more after I'm still doing well. It was well worth the money. The entire team is professional.

CELLAXYS is incredible! I’ve been suffering with extreme pain for a long time and was starting to feel helpless. Then I found CELLAXYS. The treatment was extremely effective and got me pain free with 110% mobility. The staff was amazing! They were kind, courteous and helpful! Dr Matt Otten is AMAZING! He was gentle, thorough and extremely compassionate! He was honest and made me feel at ease the entire time. Going to CELLAXYS was the best decision I ever made!!!
