Hello,

Stem cell therapy for knees has been many successful in reducing pain and repairing cartilage. As a result, many people have been able to improve their quality of life and avoid surgery. So, in my opinion stem cell is a good option of treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
