  1. I am on the cusp of a knee replacement. After years of marathons, competitive tennis and basketball my meniscus has been worn away and the pain I experience is, according to X-rays, bone on bone. I would appreciate an honest discussion of stem cell injection as an alternative to replacement: cost, insurance coverage, bone marrow requirements, timing, location, etc. I am in excellent health and in good condition (I am a daily swimmer). I have been diagnosed with Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia, a condition that no longer leaves me anemic.

    I look forward to hearing something soon, as I am making decision soon.

    Thank you, Chuck Dorsey

  2. I thought you had to go offshore for this therapy. Do you use your own material or donor material? I have full medial bone on bone in my rt knee. Will this work for me?. Does insurance cover it,?

  3. I am interested in not having knee replacement which I need at this point due to bone on bone on my left knee. Have had PPEPdone already without any results.

  4. I have bone on bone in both knees. I can’t do knee surgery because I’m allergertic to heavy metals. I would be very interested in more information on this. Thank you! Mary Ann

  5. I would be interested to know when you have expanded this technology to do vertebrae. I need it! Knees aren’t too bad, yet.
    I am involved in surgical instruments, especially for arthroscopy in people as well as horses.

  6. I have been advised to consider knee joint replacement surgery for both knees. According to the doctor at Colorado Joint Replacement, I have little cartilage remaining, so I may not be a candidate for your stem cell program. Please advise…
