Knee Injury: 81 yr old female

Documented by Randy E. Moore RDMS RMSK


Treatment

Patient: 81 year old female presenting chronic left knee pain for one year. Patient has significant discomfort with ambulation and walks with an uneven gait. 

Previous treatment: Cortisone injection which provided minimal short-term relief. Total knee replacement recommended per orthopedic surgeon. 

Ultrasound exam to evaluate current state of anterior, lateral, medial and posterior knee compartments with the hope of avoiding a total knee replacement. 

Diagnosis:  Patellar tendinosis, lateral and medial meniscus tears, fat pad depletion, cartilage loss,  and multiple MCL tears.

Treatment: 1.5cc BioRenew® PTM Therapy™ PX50™


Follow-Up

2 Months: Positive outcomes reported by patient and caregiver with regards to reduced pain and increased mobility.

105 Days: patient presented with significant reduction in pain and overall increased mobility. 

Ultrasound showed increased infra-patellar fat pad echotexture, osteochondral remodeling at the medial facet of the femoral trochlea, increased medial meniscus fibrocartilage. 

No plans for surgical replacement due to dramatic patient improvement.
