After many years of being active-particularly playing tennis-I went to Dr. Mead for knee pain. My cartilage was worn away, with an area of bone on bone. Being fairly young, we did not want to do a knee replacement. I was discouraged about my future mobility and what activity level I could sustain. Dr. Mead suggested stem cell therapy, which was then performed in April. I am 5 months out and cannot believe the change in my knee! Everyday it gets stronger and stronger and I am extremely optimistic about the high level of exercise and activity I will be able to do for years to come. I feel blessed and am so thankful for Dr. Mead!!
I had both my knees operated on by Dr. Meed. That was the best decision I have ever made. I could barely get up from a chair, or stand up for more than a minute, and now I can get up fast and stay standing for a long period of time, and walk without a cane. I have found the staff very friendly and helpful whenever I was there or I called for something. Dr. Meed keeps up on your progress at regular intervals, even a year later. I can't say enough of how grateful I am to him.
