@kdukes52, there are several discussions about stem cell therapy in the Bones, Joints & Muscles group. Here are a few you may wish to review:
Stem Cell Therapy for Rotator Cuff Tears https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/stem-cell-therapy-for-rotator-cuff-tears/ Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritic Knees https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/stem-cell-therapy-for-arthritic-knees/ Has anyone used PRP or Stem Cell Therapy to fix cervical discs https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/has-anyone-used-prp-or-stem-cell-therapy-to-fix-cervical-discs/
While these discussions are not specific to regenerative medicine for the hip, I think you'll find a lot of relevant and related information. I'm also tagging fellow members @gailb @cobweb and @winning to join this discussion.
It is so important to do your homework and due diligence when researching new treatment options. Stem cells offer a lot of hope. But where these is hope, there is hype and charlatans as this FDA warning illustrates: FDA acts to remove unproven, potentially harmful treatment used in stem cell centers targeting vulnerable patients https://www.fda.gov/newsevents/newsroom/pressannouncements/ucm573427.htm
You can read more about stem cells on the FDAs website here: https://www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/Transparency/Basics/ucm194655.htm
Another service I encourage you to take advantage of is Mayo Clinics Regenerative Medicine free Consult Service. If you call them, you will talk to a live person who will provide more information, research, and advice on seeking stem cell therapy from reputable providers, even if that provider is not Mayo Clinic. Their primary goal is to educate and help you find effective treatment.
Furthermore, you can add your name to a database to be notified when additional studies and information become available. Heres more information about the stem cell Consult Service http://www.mayo.edu/research/centers-programs/center-regenerative-medicine/patient-care/clinical-services/regenerative-medicine-consult-service. Or simply call 1-844-276-2003 to speak with one of our experts.
Phew, that's a long-winded response to your simple question Kdukes. Are you considering a hip replacement?
