Surgery is not the only path to start moving and feeling better. Claudia watched her husband undergo two meniscus surgeries with varying results. When it came time to treat her own meniscus tear and knee injury, Claudia knew she wanted something different.
She says, “I came to see Dr. Albano for PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and stem cell therapy on a torn meniscus. My husband has had two meniscus surgeries. One went well and the other did not. From the very beginning, it has caused him problems. I decided that rather than going the surgery route first and having less of a meniscus to work with, I would try PRP and stem cell regeneration to have a full meniscus to work with.”
Claudia’s Meniscus Tear Story:
Claudia knew she had a chance to avoid surgery altogether and get back to the hiking, high-energy workouts, and other activities she loves. She had worked with Dr. Albano before, so she knew to trust the process.
“I was able to return to full activity – very intense activity,” recounts Claudia. “So, I had faith in him and the procedures [for my meniscus tear.]”
