Would an expert help you make better decisions on the value of care?

Health Plans: Are you still paying for care that is no evidence-based? And do you know how much?

EARLY DEGENERATIVE KNEE PAIN TREATMENTS

Example Case Study

Early degenerative knee pain is the first presentation of Osteoarthritis, a leading cause of disability globally. Current treatments have little impact on the progressive degeneration associated with Osteoarthritis.  It is a critical medical priority to develop effective and affordable disease-modifying therapies to slow or arrest the progression of this disease.

Below is listed in order of decreasing level of effectiveness, a measure combining the research evidence of the care and its cost. (#1 has the highest level of evidence and lowest cost).

Note:

    • In many practices the common plan is to work through the entire list as each treatment fails.
    • For end stage knee arthritis a partial or total knee replacement has a great track record and a cost of $25,000 – $50,000.
