Stem Cell Therapy for Knees in Mexico
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." **
Knee Stem Cell Therapy
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!

Stem Cell Therapy for Knees in Mexico
Being part of the last three decades of innovative discoveries in the research-based area of regenerative medicine, Stem Cell Therapy promotes the reduction and stoppage of degenerative diseases or conditions, such as ALS, physical injuries and aging, bolstering the regeneration of damaged tissues, bodily processes and overall well-being.
Giostar Mexico specializes in medical tourism, receiving patients from all over the world. With the acquired understanding based on scientific research, we are able to provide personalized protocols to each patient. Through specialized allogenic mesenchymal adult stem cells, our regenerative therapy concentrates stem cells in the targeted area, organ or immune system, helping the body stop the progression of a disease or condition and begin regeneration.
Why choose Giostar?
Thanks to a progressive legal framework in Mexico, Giostar can provide personalized therapy with intravenous and local applications otherwise legally unavailable in the United States and Canada. As everyone is unique, we develop personalized protocols for each patient. Although patients may share the same condition, we understand that similar symptoms does not necessarily mean same solution or treatment for everyone. Genetics, lifestyle and other circumstances can affect differently how patients respond to therapy.

Stem cell therapy is a procedure in the regenerative medicine field. Regenerative medicine's ultimate goal is that our body regenerates itself. What stem cell therapy does in your body is slow down or stop the suffered deterioration and it can even regenerate damaged tissue and organs. That is why we ask our patients to fill out a Health Form, so our medical staff may first identify if stem cell therapy is actually an option for them, as well as allowing our medical team to understand each patient's specific health conditions.
