Osteoarthritis Treatment in Athens

Osteoarthritis the most common form of arthritis, is a degenerative disease, and can affect any joint but most commonly affects joints in your knees and hips.

Osteoarthritis symptoms often develop slowly and worsen over time. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage that protects the bones wears down gradually.

Osteoarthritis symptoms typically develop slowly and can be managed to a large extent through lifestyle measures such as exercise and weight loss, as well as medical treatments but the damage to the joints cannot be reversed.

Treating Hip Pain

Regenerative Medicine for Knee and Hip Osteoarthritis

In knee osteoarthritis, the cartilage that covers the ends of the bones starts to deteriorate. As the bones lose protective covering, they start to rub against one another. This leads to pain, swelling, and stiffness — and, ultimately, loss of function and mobility.

Hip joint is made up of a ball (the head of your thighbone) that fits into a rounded socked in your pelvis. Cartilage covers and protects the bones that make up your hip joint. Osteoarthritis causes this cartilage to wear away.

When the cartilage wears away, it becomes frayed and rough. Moving the bones along this exposed surface is painful.   If the cartilage wears away completely, it can result in bone rubbing on bone. This may cause you to limp when you put weight to your leg.

Adipose Derived Stem Cell is a promising source for the treatment of osteoarthritis due to their multipotency for differentiation into chondrocytes and their ability to modulate the immune system.

Stem Cell treatment is the most advanced regenerative treatment able to regenerate your joints and keep you out of the operating room. Stem cell therapy has emerged as a genuine alternative, offering a raft of advantages.

Stem cell therapy can decrease the inflammation and pain to damaged cartilage tissue, can promote faster healing and can offer an alternative to or a preliminary option to try before joint replacement surgery.
