Did you ever know just how important your knees are? The knees act like a hinge, and provide steadiness and strength to support the entire body. That’s right, the entire body. Your knees serve as a critical function for standing, walking and running of course, and the fun-filled motions like dancing, jumping, twirling and turning.
When a knee (or knees) give out, it can affect your entire body, even your entire wellbeing. It may affect your ability to perform sports, or even basic functions like standing up from your favorite chair or walking outside to get the mail.
Knee replacement surgery is of course an option, and a really good option to get up and running (or walking) again. Dallas-based board certified orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Wade McKenna has performed over 20,000 surgeries, so he is more than qualified to make any repairs to your precious knees. But what if there was a quicker way to heal without a complete knee overhaul?
One of the breakthrough technologies that Dr. McKenna specializes in is called Stemnexa. Stemnexa combines a patient’s own bone marrow stem cells with amniotic tissue (donated from a mother after a live birth) to treat bone, muscle, tendon, ligament and cartilage injury in the knee. The amniotic tissue that Dr. McKenna uses in the procedure is composed of collagens and other proteins, which provide solution that supports both tissue growth and new collagen production during tissue regeneration and repair process. Though it sounds technical, the bottom line is that this procedure works, and patients have had amazing results from this relatively not invasive method.
