Ryan Tannehill, quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, avoided invasive ACL repair with a stem cell treatment. A common injury among athletes, ACL tears require surgery and long months of recovery and physical therapy to restore normal mobility and function in the knee. Tannehill was able to avoid this arduous process in favor of a stem cell treatment, and although he is required to wear a brace, he does not display limited mobility typically associated with this injury.

Meniscus Regenerative Therapy Engages Patient’s Own Stem Cells.

Posted by maxi@stemsave.com on May 19, 2015 11:55:42 AM

In a newly published article by the Wall Street Journal, a team of Columbia and Cornell researchers led by Dr. Jeremy Mao [a member of StemSave’s Scientific Advisory Council] has developed a potential method to treat patients with torn menisci.  The method involves 3D-printing a biodegradable scaffold of the meniscus, infusing it with growth factors, and implanting it into the knee.  Once in the patient’s body, the growth factors should attract autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells to generate a new, natural meniscus.
