The Ideal Method in Meniscus Treatment 'Stem Cell'

Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Specialist Associate Professor Ahmet İnanır gave important information on the subject. What is meniscus? What Does the Meniscus Do? What are the Meniscus Symptoms? How is Meniscus Diagnosed? How should the meniscus treatment be done? Stem cell therapy is used in the treatment of other diseases?

The menisci are two circular wedge-shaped fibro-cartilaginous structures located between the femoral condyles and the tibial plateau. It basically consists of water and Type 2 collagen fibers.

In addition to providing resistance against loads and impacts on the knee joint, it also contributes to the distribution of the load and stabilization. In addition, the menisci are responsible for the lubrication (lubricity), nutrition and proprioception of the articular cartilage (the process of creating responses that will detect the joints, limbs, ligaments, and keep these areas in the safest position by the brain, and the proprioceptive process is governed by the deep senses). There are peripheral fibers that meet the axial loading and radial fibers that hold these fibers together and prevent their vertical (vertical) separation. This information is very important.

What are the symptoms?

Among the many causes of knee pain, meniscus injuries play a very important role. Along with knee pain, swelling, limitation of movement, snagging, clicking sound, locking, even ejaculation and even deterioration in walking and balance can be seen. The tears separated from the main tissue cause locking by displacing the joint. The patient describes tenderness and pain in the media (inner) and lateral (outer) joint line lines. Especially in knee extension (knee straightening) movement, loss and snagging can be detected.

How is it diagnosed?

Meniscal tears are diagnosed by examination and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. However, meniscus tears can be detected in 20% MRI in people who have no knee complaints.

How should it be treated?

The aim of treatment should not be just to relieve pain. Because if only pain relief is aimed, the way to deterioration in the knee will be opened in the next days/months/years. Although the number of non-surgical methods in treatment is quite large, the treatment performed by a competent specialist should be chosen. The most important option among these is the stem cell combination, which is a newly developed and regenerative approach.

Stem cell therapy is used in the treatment of other diseases?

"Stem Cell" also works very well in hernia regression and recovery. It can also help to heal 'disc degeneration', which is the cause of hernia and pain. The most ideal method for knee calcification is stem cell therapy, which is repairing.

Live cells decrease in degenerated discs. Stem cells can increase cell viability in the applied area. Stem cells separated from the patient's own blood, bone marrow, and abdominal fat can be transferred to the damaged, necessary places and between the discs by injection method.
