Cortisone injections are extremely safe, but they do still have potential problems. If you are concerned about having a cortisone shot, talk with your doctor. While cortisone is a powerful treatment for many orthopedic conditions, there are usually other options that can also be tried. Many doctors will offer an injection as they are quick, easy, and most often effective. However, your doctor should also be able to offer other treatments for inflammation that may also be effective for those that cannot have, or don't want, a cortisone injection.

I had a knee replacement 10 years ago , because I was bone on bone! Every since have my knee replaced I have had a Manipulation , surgery to remove scare tissue . Fast forward about four years still in a lot of pain with swelling , I ended up having a revision because something came loose ! Still a lot of pain and swelling , Four months after my revision I had to have a hip replacement all on the same side because my knee still had a lot of pain . So here we are 2017 my Dr retired and my new dr told me that the implants where in wrong ! Had another knee replacement in 2016 ! Still in a lot of pain and still very swollen in fact haven’t been working because it swells so bad when I stand or walk!

In the past 6 months my right knee is giving me fits. The pain in on the inside of the joint and begins to hurt after only a small amount of walking. It also appears that walking downhill is worse than up. I have used ointments and heating wraps and leg supports and all work a little but just temporary. I do have some stiffness in the morning and on and off during the day. I am 75 years old and somewhat over weight. I came to you about a year ago with my right hip giving me trouble. I stopped jogging and went to walking as an exercise. The hip stopped hurting but now transferred to my knee. I did physical therapy on my hip which helped my range of movement as there was a remarkable difference in the range of my right to my left. Would the 6 month shot stop this pain or do I need a knee replacement?

Linda,
Unfortunately the instability is likely coming from the missing meniscus, as it acts as both shock absorber and spacer. The Supartz shots are a much better idea than the steroid shots as while they don’t have regenerative potential at least they don’t kill the stem cells in the knee like steroid shots do. It sounds like your knee has advanced arthritis which is a very common complication of meniscus surgery, but knee replacement is irreversible, and trying all less invasive options first is always the best plan. The instability can be helped by strengthening and tightening the lax ligaments which result from the missing meniscus altering the biomechanics of the knee, and getting stem cells into the knee could at best sort things, at worse, at least delay the knee replacement for a few years. Joint replacements in real life don’t last as long as they’re advertised to, and, joint replacement is a huge surgery with risks and complications. http:///knee-replacement-questions/ http:///the-regenexx-procedures/knee-surgery-alternative/
