A 2016 study

A 2016 study highlighting risks associated with arthroscopic surgery for knee pain in cases with osteoarthritis and meniscus derangement. Cases such as these with advanced OA and degenerative meniscus tears, extremely common in advancing OA, are exactly what our clinical studies were fashioned to explore. To show the positive outcomes achieved for orthopedic pain using precision ultrasound guided Lipogems injections.

In patients with knee osteoarthritis arthroscopic knee surgery with meniscectomy is associated with a 3 fold increase in the risk for future knee replacement surgery.
