Sanford

Clinics and universities around the country are in the early stages of testing if stem cells can be used to treat osteoarthritis in the knee.  Sanford Health is one of the hospitals involved in the study and will test a group of around 120 patients.

Osteoarthritis is a painful condition that occurs when the cartilage on the end of bones degrades over time, causing the bones to make contact. 

Dr. Chad Kurtenbach is an orthopedic surgeon with Sanford Health.  He says arthritis tends to happen naturally as people get older but can be accelerated by injuries and trauma.
