Personalized Stem Cell Study: Knee Osteoarthritis

Your cells for your knee. Extra stem cells stored for the future. Cells quality tested before injection. FDA approved clinical trial.


This clinical trial provides stem cells from a small lipoaspiration sample of your fat. The fat is collected by the physician and shipped to an FDA-inspected laboratory. The stem cells are tested for sterility and other quality tests. Then the cells are shipped back to the clinic for injection into your knee. This study includes physical examinations and X-rays, blood and urine tests, knee pain and function evaluations. Study length is three months with follow-up call at 6 and 12 months.

General Qualifications for Eligibility

  • Knee pain for at least 3 months
  • 18-80 years old
  • No active cancer, infection, immune diseases
  • Not regular smoker
  • Conservative therapy failed after 6 weeks
  • Generally good health other than osteoarthritis
  • Study is partially patient-funded with a cost of $8,900 which covers the costs for liposuction and the storage of your extra stem cells for one year. (long term storage available at extra charge)

Herniated Discs and Leg Pain

Your lower back is made up of five lumbar vertebrae (bones) which surround and protect your spinal cord. Nerves travel along your spinal cord, sending information back and forth from your brain to other parts of your body. In between the vertebrae are flat, flexible discs that act as shock absorbers when you walk, run or jump. These discs have a flexible outer ring and a soft gel-like center.


When a disc’s gel-like center pushes through a weakened area of the disc it is called a herniated disc (or a slipped or ruptured disc). The gel may place pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerves. This “pinches” the nerve and can lead to sciatica represented by the leg pain associated with herniated discs. A herniated disc happens most often in the lower back and is one of the most common causes of lower back and leg pain.
