Stem Cell Therapy
Dr. Steven Struhl and his team are among a select group of physicians specializing in Stem Cell Therapy in NYC and Westchester Countyto help with knee pain (chronic tendonitis and/or osteoarthritis (OA) pain).
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells are the only cells in the body able to morph into other types of specialized cells. The procedure is one where Dr. Struhl extracts stem cells from the bone marrow of the patient’s pelvic bone (hip area) or from the adipose tissue on the stomach. When the patient’s own stem cells are injected into a damaged joint, they appear to amplify the body’s own natural repair efforts by reducing inflammation, accelerating healing, and preventing scarring and loss of function.
“Since the stem cells come from your own body, there’s vitually no chance of infection or rejection. Stem cell injections are done on an outpatient basis and tend to have a quick and easy recovery”, explains Dr. Struhl.

Dr. Steven Struhl keeps an open mind to explore the best possible solution for someone to get back to his or her active life. Dr. Struhl proves that the first option does not always require surgery.
