Patient: “In January I was kneeling down at work; as I stood up I felt a pop in my knee.
It got progressively more painful as the day went on. My primary care doctor thought it was a torn meniscus and sent me to an orthopedic group and they did an MRI.
They confirmed it- they wanted to do arthroscopic surgery but I was leery about it because I had heard that some people… actually the results were worse after the surgery so I had heard that Dr. Calapai was doing this Stem Cell [treatment] and I wanted to give it a shot.
He did the treatment about three weeks ago and I’ve noticed that after about two weeks my knee got progressively better and better- less and less pain, less and less swelling, more range of mobility. I was very active at work and after the injury I could barely work and now I’m pretty much back to a full work schedule.”
