Regenerative Medicine for Osteoarthritis
Approximately 30 million people in the U.S. have osteoarthritis. It predominantly affects older adults, with 1 in every 10 people over the age of 60 being diagnosed with it. As the elderly population increases, the number of people with osteoarthritis is expected to rise steadily.
Also known as degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage (the flexible, connective tissue that provides cushioning in the joints) gradually deteriorates, causing pain, impairment, and even disability.
While many osteoarthritis treatments focus on alleviating pain and improving mobility, few seek to stop the progression of the condition. This is where regenerative medicine comes in. This osteoarthritis treatment in Tucson focuses on regenerating the damaged cartilage, eliminating the osteoarthritis symptoms.
