End knee pain with stem cells from your hip:
Scientists are testing whether a cocktail of stem cells – including some from the hip – could not only halt the damage osteoarthritis causes to the knee, but may ultimately do away with the need for surgery.
Simon Moyes, a leading knee surgeon based at the London Bridge Hospital, is working alongside a number of companies to promote the use of stem cell techniques in the UK.
He said: “I believe this is the future treatment of osteoarthritis and other degenerative conditions. Sadly today many who suffer have little option but total joint replacement surgery.”
