What should I expect during my first visit?
The knee is built to withstand quite a bit of stress, but active sports add high energy stressors on the knee that are not normal. Sprains and strains to the ligaments such as the ACL and MCL are common and may be accompanied by a pop. A meniscus tear usually occurs in a high energy event like a tackle that forces the knee to twist. A fractured patella is the most common break and can be caused by a tackle or a car accident.
Age can play a role in the gradual deterioration of our knees. It can creep up on us slowly. When you are over 50, you can tear a meniscus by turning suddenly or tripping on a curb. Poor posture, leg length discrepancy, osteoarthritis and undiagnosed pelvic tilt can also place stressors on the knees resulting in long term damage and knee pain.
Doctors like Scott Greenberg are making considerable strides in the regeneration of knee joints. The kinetic knee regenerative treatments that Dr. Greenberg has developed an alternative to knee replacement operations. The treatments are natural and steroid and opioid-free. They use your body’s own stem cells, growth and healing factors to help regenerate ligaments, cartilage, bursa, meniscus and strengthen bones.
Dr. Greenberg published the first knee meniscus regeneration treatment in 2018. The team used treatments of adipose-derived regenerative cells (ADRCs) and platelet-rich plasma to regenerate meniscus and repair a torn meniscus of the knee. They permanently eliminated a painful, chronic condition for the patient.
Dr. Scott Greenberg is a pioneering leader in prolotherapy, PRP, and stem cell procedures. He serves as the chair of the Institutional Review Board of the American Association of Stem Cell Physicians and is a founding board member. He was a member of the first team to repair a meniscus tear using stem cell therapy and has treated many professional and Olympic athletes among the thousands of people helped since starting his practice in 1999. Dr. Greenberg is a Medical Staff Member of The Bryn Mawr Hospital and an affiliate of The Main Line Health Dee Adams Center for Integrative and Regenerative Medicine at Bryn Mawr. Additionally he serves as a Clinical Professor at the Marcus Institute of Integrative Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.
