What is the success rate for stem cell therapy?”

So far, 87 percent of our patients have done well for both symptomatic relief as well as showing increased cartilage thickness, as measured by ultrasound at 6-7 months following the procedure. The success rate for knees is 97 percent and for hips is 40 percent. Why so low for hips? We still don’t know.
The amount of cartilage growth varies with younger people generally showing more improvement than older patients.

We are also measuring other things such as functional capacity using what is called the WOMAC scale, a standardized measurement of function for patients with osteoarthritis. We also assess the time it takes a person to walk 50 feet. And we also measure a patient’s own perception of their pain on a visual analogue scale.
