Regenerative Medicine for Knee Degeneration/Arthritis/Bone on Bone
Degeneration can occur in any of the joints in the body, especially those that experience lots of wear and tear. The knees are used in so many daily motions, feeling pain with each movement is debilitating. Joint degeneration generally develops over time, but can suddenly worsen and become more severe and disabling. Cartilage or other soft tissues within the knee joint can begin to dehydrate, deteriorate, or become damaged from some type of injury. These tissues provide a protective cushion between the bones for smooth movement. Once these start to wear down, or degenerate, friction within the joint can lead to inflammation, swelling, bone spurs, and other painful symptoms. Recent developments in Stem Cell Therapy make it possible to treat degenerative joint conditions naturally, without the need for medications, steroids, or surgery. Our JointRenew Program™ for those suffering from a degenerated, arthritic knee uses stem cells in concentrated amounts, which are injected into the affected area to help reduce inflammation and reverse damage and deterioration of tissue. Over the years Atlas’ JointRenew Program™ has helped many knee pain sufferers get out of pain, improve the quality of their life and avoid knee replacement surgery.

Regenerative Medicine for Meniscus Tears
The meniscus is located in the knee joint. It is a rubbery piece of cartilage that acts as the body’s shock absorber and also acts as a pad to stabilize and protect the knee. There are three degrees of meniscus tears: severe, moderate and minor. A severe meniscus tear is when bits of ruptured meniscus enter the knee joint and affect the function of the knee causing unbearable pain. For example, if a piece of meniscus tissue gets lodged in the joint, not only will it cause pain, but it also prevents any movement in the knee. This is considered a ‘mechanical’ problem and oftentimes does need surgery to remove the meniscus fragment from the joint space. If the meniscus tear is severe, but is not causing a ‘mechanical problem’, then the tear may be treated conservatively.
On the other hand, with minor and moderate meniscus tears, the pain can be severe OR there may be NO pain associated with the tear. In fact, most people over the age of sixty have a meniscus tear in their knee and don’t even realize it’s there. When meniscus tears do cause pain, they can prevent you from twisting, sleeping comfortably, and performing and enjoying simple, normal everyday activities. It is important to note that these types of tears oftentimes do NOT need surgery and respond well to regenerative treatments. Those suffering from meniscus tears are increasingly becoming aware of the long-term implications of removing or cleaning out the meniscus through arthroscopic knee surgery. Some have tried physical therapy, rooster comb injections, cortisone injections and medications with only temporary results.
The good news is that Atlas’ JointRenew Program™ uses stem cells along with other regenerative cells to help relieve pain and aide in the repair of the meniscus tear in the knee joint, ultimately avoiding arthroscopic knee surgery and allowing you to get your life back.
Regenerative Medicine for ACL or PCL Injury
The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are both major ligaments providing strength and stability within the knee joint. Ligaments are thick bands of tissue that connect bones. Injuries to these connective tissues are painful, debilitating, and have historically been a challenge to treat and heal. In the past, these kinds of injuries could cause what was considered permanent damage to the knee joints. Traditionally, the most common treatment for torn ligaments in the knee is arthroscopic surgery and reconstruction. Recent studies have shown that years after these types of surgeries, the knee joint is actually worse.
Developments in regenerative medicine make effective, natural treatment of PCL and ACL injuries within reach. Atlas’ JointRenew Program™ uses procedures like Stem Cell Therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, Amniotic Cell Therapy and Advanced Cold Laser Therapy to offer non-surgical treatment options for those suffering from knee injuries and damage to soft tissues in the joints. Using these cells in concentrated amounts to target the injured area, the body is able to reduce inflammation and heal itself naturally.
Regenerative Medicine for Chondromalacia
Also known as “runner’s knee,” chondromalacia is inflammation of the underside of the kneecap and deterioration of the cartilage that supports it. When this cartilage is damaged or wears down, it becomes difficult to bend and straighten out the leg. This condition is common among young athletes, but may also be present in older individuals with arthritis of the knee. Atlas’ JointRenew Program™ offers a natural treatment alternative to pain medications, steroid injections, and surgery. Using regenerative cells, our specialists are able to target the underside of the knee cap to reduce inflammation and help restore damaged tissues. These are cutting-edge techniques that have provided relief and healing to many of our patients suffering with chondromalacia knee pain.
Since 2001, we have been helping patients get relief from knee pain even after other conventional treatments such as medications, cortisone injections, Rooster Comb, physical therapy and surgery have failed. Atlas’ unique, regenerative JointRenew Program™ is customized depending on your age, health, diagnosis and the severity of your condition. The program can include a combination of two or more of the following treatments: Stem Cell Therapy, Amniotic Cell Therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, and Advanced Cold Laser Therapy. The integration of treatments allows us to help accelerate the healing process by increasing the number of regenerative cells and improving blood flow to the area; which ultimately helps relieve pain and aid in repair, rebuilding, and regenerating the tissues in the joint. Unlike ‘traditional’ treatments that simply just mask the pain and are temporary, regenerative medicine treats the root of the problem and often has more sustainable results. We have a very high clinical success rate with treating even some of the more difficult conditions. In addition, our Board Certified, skilled, and experienced Medical professionals perform all injections under ultrasound or Fluoroscopy guidance leaving you confident that the regenerative cells are being injected into the TARGETED area— which allows for the greatest chance for success!
Our unique JointRenew Program™ takes the best components from all the current non-invasive treatment options and puts them into one.
