Kenneth Pettine (retired) has published several articles and papers on orthopedic procedures and stem cell therapy. Through this research, Kenneth has discovered new ways of treating orthopedic injuries and how mesenchymal cells can provide alternatives to traditional surgery. If you’re suffering from hip, knee, shoulder, or back pain, stem cell injections could be a viable option. Look through the articles below, and if you have questions about orthopedic surgery, artificial disc replacement, or stem cell treatment, please contact him today and he will gladly speak with you about all of your options.
