N-Stride injection could delay the need for knee surgery

 

 

Knee replacement surgery could possibly be delayed wtih the use of the N-Stride injection which is available at One Ashford

 

Are you suffering from knee pain due to injury or osteoarthritis? 

 

 

Osteoarthritis of the knee, otherwise known as degenerative arthritis of the knee, is the stiffening of the knee movement due to wear and tear of the cartilage and supporting structures of the knee, causing pain, stiffness and inflammation. Osteoarthritis is the most common arthritis, and commonly affects people in their late 40s or older, due to cartilage in joints gradually wearing down over time.

 

The 20 minute procedure sees blood drawn from the patient's arm, separated in a centrifuge, after which part of the fluid is then injected into the arthritic knee. 

 

The surgeon who brought the treatment to the UK believes it can delay or even stop the need for keyhole surgery for osteoarthritis of the knee altogether. 

 

A trial study in the Netherlands published in 2017 showed that 85% of patients had little to no pain in their knee six months after this new procedure, which is called the N-Stride Autologous Protein Solution (APS). 

 

A number of our specialist Orthopaedic Knee Consultants are able to administer the N-Stride injection, so please call the hospital on 01233 423000 to speak to a member of our team.  Alternatively email us at ashford.info@onehealthcare.co.uk
