I wonder if this will be a cure for my herniated discs.

This would be nice, for my knees. Years of being a catcher have finally caught up with me.

Man, you are 26 and already had microfracture surgery on your hip. Did you play sports? Football? or just built that way. I have had a couple knee surgeries because I was a catcher a little too long,but nothing like that. I bet its a pain in the but not putting any pressure on it.
Good Luck

I could have my knee back! Two arthroscopies have not done the trick.

I've had degenerative cartilage in my knee for well over a decade. Not much left.
:pray: this becomes common practice.

After three back/spine surgeries in a two year span and a possible disc fusion down the road I could definitely use this stuff.

Three herniated discs here...I'm hoping this stuff is the real deal.

There is nothing like having daily pain in a weight bearing joint.

Pretty much a culmination of bad genetics (stenosis) and too much stress on my lower lumbar region over the years whether through industrial landscaping, touring and carrying around band equipment every night, etc.. It all kind of caught up to me when I hit 25, never had a back problem before then. My last surgery was in Dec. '07, still going through intense physical therapy with the aid of pain meds.

Thanks brotha :hi5:

Hope everything goes well with you in the present and future bro. Heres a part of the article that talks about spinal fusion.

"The patented platform technology could be a medical breakthrough, and while the company's first application is for cartilage regeneration, it is also suitable for other regenerative processes, such as bone repair and spinal fusion."

I dont fully understand it though. Are they saying it could repair bones and spinal fusion or is that what they are aiming for?
