If you have been considering knee replacement surgery to try and solve your chronic knee pain, you may want to explore less invasive treatment options before making a final decision. Knee replacement typically involves a long and challenging recovery and rehabilitation process, which is why non-surgical solutions like regenerative medicine are a great and effective alternative to a riskier and more painful procedure.

How Do Regenerative Treatments Work as Alternatives to Knee Replacement Surgery?
Our regenerative treatments are safe alternatives to knee replacement surgery that can provide you with long-term pain relief by addressing the underlying cause of your painful knees. The pain you are feeling can create limitations in your life, but it’s only there because of an underlying issue happening beneath the surface.
If that underlying issue is resolved, then the pain will no longer be there, and you can get on with life on your own terms without the long recovery of surgery or potentially dangerous side effects of pain medication.
Regenerative tissue injections start with tissue collected from the Wharton’s Jelly of donated umbilical allografts. Healthy, prescreened mothers donate these cords after a scheduled C-section and both the mother and baby are unharmed during the process. The reason our doctors prefer this youthful tissue for knee pain relief is because it is loaded with healing properties that are still at maximum strength.
- Growth factors
- Hyaluronic acid
- Amino acids
Our platelet-rich plasma treatments start with a sample of your own blood. Then it is placed into a centrifuge that spins the sample. During this process, the red blood cells and platelets separate.
Once complete, the resulting solution contains highly concentrated platelets with potent healing properties. They can boost your body’s own healing mechanisms when injected into your damaged or degraded knee tissue.
Both of our regenerative medicine treatments are minimally invasive. They also require little to no downtime after your appointment. Since PRP is derived from your own blood and regenerative tissue has yet to create its own immune system, the likelihood of rejection for either treatment is virtually none.
What Are the Most Common Causes of Knee Pain?
When it comes to knee pain, two of the most common causes are osteoarthritis and ligament damage. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that occurs when the cartilage protecting your joints wears down. Ligament damage can occur from any number of different injuries.
Some additional knee pain causes we see at our healthcare clinic include:
- Sprains and strains
- Torn meniscus
- And more
