The cost of surgery goes beyond just the dollars and cents that come out of your pocketbook. Recovery time is a large price to pay when you go under the knife. But what if there was an easier and faster way to heal?
Enter stem cell therapy, Stemnexa. At McKenna Orthopedics, Dr. R. Wade McKenna leads the way to healing non-invasively. Pretty cool, huh?
So how exactly does it work?
Stem cell therapy may look a bit different for each application, but here is the gist.
We take human amniotic tissue (donated afterbirth from a mama who has delivered a live healthy baby) and utilize its components to inject the therapy where the patient is having problematic issues.
This cell therapy pumps oxygen to the tissue, reduces pesky inflammation all the while, preventing cell death. We want all the alive and well cells we can get, am I right?
The actual procedure takes less than your hour-long lunch break, and patients can potentially be on their feet in under a week.
Using the Stemnexa technology is the best way to heal quickly, and get back on your feet sooner than if you were to undergo traditional, under the knife surgery.

If you suffer from chronic knee pain due to arthritis or an old injury, or you’ve recently injured your knee meniscus, cartilage or ligaments (ACL, MCL) you may benefit from non-surgical stem cell injections or stem cell-enhanced surgery.
About the Knee
The knee is the joint where the bones of the upper leg meet the bones of the lower leg, allowing hinge-like movement while providing stability and strength to support the weight of the body. Flexibility, strength, and stability are needed for standing and for motions like walking, running, crouching, jumping, and turning.
Several kinds of supporting and moving parts, including bones, cartilage, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, help the knees do their job. Each of these structures is subject to disease and injury. When a knee problem affects your ability to do things, it can have a big impact on your life. Knee problems can interfere with many things, from participation in sports to simply getting up from a chair and walking.
Stemnexa combines a patient’s own bone marrow stem cells with AlphaGEMS amniotic membrane tissue to treat bone, muscle, tendon, ligament and cartilage damage in the knee. AlphaGEMS is composed of collagens and other structural proteins, which provide a biologic matrix that supports angiogenesis, tissue growth and new collagen production during tissue regeneration and repair.
