A few of years back, I fell and had a torn meniscus on both knees. As time went by, arthritis took over and changed my life dramatically. I live in upstate New York were the cold weather can be an enemy for people with arthritis. During this time, I saw four (4) different specialists who could not do anything but give me cortisone and gel shots which only lasted a few months and provided “minimal” relief. I walked around holding on to the walls feeling as if my knees were going to crumble at any moment. The last specialist wanted to do a partial knee replacement for each knee, which I couldn’t understand as I am only in my mid-40’s! In search of different alternatives, I did a lot of research into the Stem Cell treatment and decided to meet with Dr. Borenstein. He answered my every question, phone call and email with amazing knowledge, professionalism, sympathy and understanding. I was very skeptical at first but felt I needed to exhaust every other avenue before going ahead with such a dramatic and permanent solution as partial knee replacement surgery. I scheduled and received the stem cell treatment November 2016 and the recuperation has been mind-blowing in an awesome and very positive way. Just six days after treatment, I was able to stretch my knees in bed! I cannot even tell you when was the last time I was able to do that without feeling that knees would crack. Little by little, I started feeling better each day. I was no longer doing the “penguin” walk (especially when getting out of bed). Cold days were more manageable and not as painful as they once were. Day 10th was amazing to me; I was super busy at work and took the stairs, walking down one leg in front of the other (a thought that no longer existed on my mind) and when I realized what I was doing, a HUGE smile of happiness took over! Since then, everyday has been better and better! Dr. Borenstein has been there for me every step of the way, he has been very responsive to all my messages/questions, checks up on me, gives me ideas and tips; all in all helping me get back the life that I so desperately needed. I cannot believe that the FDA will approve the knee replacement surgery, where they will actually CUT your own bones (which is irreversible), but they won’t approve a stem cell treatment that comes from ones own body! When I go to Physical Therapy (to strengthen my muscles) and I see people there screaming of pain from their knee surgeries and my heart aches for them. I thank God every day for crossing my path with Dr. Borenstein before it was too late! If you have been told you need surgery, do yourself a HUGE favor and contact Dr. Borenstein first. I pray that he can help your situation as he helped mine. I went on vacation this Christmas and was able to dance…Dance, (an activity that my mind had deleted completely) before my stem cell treatment! I will be forever grateful to Dr. David Borenstein for his extensive knowledge, understanding and for restoring and giving me back MY OWN KNEES!!!
