Hello. I’m a sufferer of bone TB. My knee joint is already severe. Can I fix it by stem cell?

1 Answer:

Hello Qaireen, Thank you for the question.

Tuberculosis (TB) is an infection caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis which can attack the lungs (pulmonary TB) and other organs / tissues outside the lungs (extra-pulmonary TB). Bone TB is one type of extra-pulmonary TB, which attacks the spine, long bones in the body, and joints.

Stem cell therapy is a therapy that is indeed being discussed a lot because of its theory, this therapy is very promising to help regenerate body cells, including cells or tissues that have been damaged. However, the fact is, this therapy is still in the research stage and there are no results of research showing the safety and benefits of its use with certainty.

The best step you can take is to consult an orthopedic specialist regarding treatment options for your condition. The doctor needs to do a number of tests such as x-rays or CT scans to determine the severity of your condition. After this examination, the doctor will discuss with you about further treatment options. Equally important is to always take antituberculosis drugs (OAT) regularly without interruption in accordance with doctor's recommendations so that this infection can be resolved properly.

Hopefully this information helps you.
