Stem Cell Treatment for Knee Pain
Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may be the result of an injury, such as a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage. It can be caused by sports injuries, work-related motions, natural mechanical problems, types of arthritis, among other multiple possibilities. For Knee Pain, age is also an important factor. According to recent studies: "Knee pain (KP) is a very common musculoskeletal condition and is a leading cause of disability in people aged over 50 years".* Signs and symptoms that sometimes accompany knee pain include:
- Swelling and stiffness
- Redness and warmth to the touch
- Weakness or instability
- Popping or crunching noises
Providing adequate and prompt therapy to recover from knee pain is crucial. Updated research on patients with knee pain due to OA (Osteoarthritis) has indicated that: "Knee pain over 1 year predicted accelerated cartilage volume loss and increased risk of incident and progressive ROA. Early management of knee pain and controlling knee pain over time by targeting the underlying mechanisms may be important for preserving knee structure and reducing the burden of knee OA." **
Regenerative therapy for knee pain
Stem cell therapy, being part of the regenerative medicine field, has increasingly become an attractive alternative to otherwise painful surgeries that require time, effort and rest in order to recover from the intervention. Being non-invasive, regenerative therapy offers patients a treatment to recover from injuries and conditions that were traditionally treated with invasive knee replacement procedures, for example.
It is common for our patients to begin their questions with: how much does a stem cell injection cost? Gladly, we clarify that depending on the condition to be treated, the number of IV and Local applications will vary. Also, we do not charge our patients per injection; rather, all of our prices vary according to the number of vials included in the personalized protocol each patient receives from our medical directors, who in turn consult with Dr Anand Srivastava (our Chief Scientist Officer and Co-Founder). This translates to safety for patients of stem cell therapy, knowing that each protocol is developed by highly trained medical professionals with a scientific background. You will not find this easily in other clinics, even countries.
Also, it is important to consider that treatment price may vary according to the specific interest each patient presents. We take into account the personal choices of patients regarding the type of mesenchymal stem cell to be used (umbilical cord, adipose tissue or dental pulp), and if our medical directors determine that the treatment’s results will not be compromised, the patient selects the type of donor mesenchymal stem cells to receive. So, as you can see, the price of stem cell therapy will greatly depend on what you decide!

Cost of stem cell treatment for knee pain
The average cost for stem cell therapy for knee pain, in Giostar Mexico, starts at $8,500.00 USD for one application (half-treatment). Pricing highly depends on the personalized protocol that the Medical Director determines based on each patient's condition. What may this include?
- Transportation from hotel-clinic, clinic-hotel and airport-hotel as well as hotel-airport (mainly for our Clinics in Playa del Carmen and Guadalajara; our Clinic in Los Algodones, due to its proximity to the US-Mexico border crossing, we pick up patients on the border and take them to our clinic or their hotel)
- Lodging (available in our Clinic in Algodones) at Hotel Haciendo or Hotel Cielito Lindo
- Oxygen Therapy
- Body preparation – Nutritional IV Therapy
- 1 - 10 billion exosomes (volumen depends on Doctor's personal evaluation of each patient)
- 1 - 4 stem cell vials (35 - 140 million stem cells) - IV (Intravenous) and Local applications
- Laboratory protocol by Dr. Anand (activation of the stem cells in order to direct them towards the affected tissue or organ)
- Medical Consultation
- Dietitian Follow up post-therapy
- Preferential discount for future reinforcements/applications
- Laboratory exams the previous day before first application
