RAK Hospital announced the launch of new and revolutionary stem cell therapy for the treatment of arthritis and other joint related issues. The treatment is introduced to exponentially reduce a person’s need for surgery. Instead of having to replace a knee with an artificial implant, stem cell therapy in knee-joints can be used to re-grow new and healthy tissues that have been damaged or are degenerating. People who have encountered an injury to the knee or have chronic knee pain due to a past injury or arthritis are good candidates for knee stem cell therapy.
Dr Raza Siddiqui, CEO of Arabian Healthcare Group and executive director of RAK Hospital, said: “Doctors and scientists view the growth of stem cell treatments as very promising and the treatment of knee arthritis is especially popular in the US; we wanted people in the UAE to avail this sitting here at a cost far lesser than they would have paid otherwise. I believe, this is just the beginning and we hope that we will continue to further explore non-surgical options extensively.”
