There are several factors considered when determining if one is a candidate for stem cell treatment.
Most important is the severity of the osteoarthritis (OA). We grade osteoarthritis using the Kellgren-Lawrence grading system. Grade I is minimal OA. Grade IV is “bone on bone”. There must be some cartilage and joint space left in order for the stem cells to have something to work with.
Other factors include:
You must be younger than 75 years of age.
Height and Weight
Your Body Mass Index (BMI) will be calculated based on your height and weight. You must have a BMI of less than 30.
You should be in good general health.
It helps if you have been athletic in the past or have maintained an active lifestyle.
Finally, a person’s expectations factor into whether or not he/she is eligible. While many patients are experiencing significant improvement, you will not feel like you are 21 again.
