Next month I will undertake a procedure whereby, my blood cells will be reimjected into my knees,hopefully, some cells will be pluripotent and able to differentiate into cartilage cells. However, I’m not holding my breath as to the chances of a perfect result

Likewise, this is great news for me and millions of others. I'll be back on the moguls by the end of winter

If you can run and skate it’s not bone on bone. Trust me on that.

Where can we sign up? I had most of the cartilage removed from my knee years ago, and now it is basically bone on bone anytime I run or skate. Hopefully it will be a success and give a lot of patients relief and avoid more costly and invasive knee replacement surgery.
