This is an important new treatment, approved by the FDA in 2016, replaces cartilage in your joints by growing them off your own cells, and them surgically implanting them for slowly regrowing. It sounds like an excellent option instead of joint replacement. I don't know the costs, or even if is available in Mexico. This is an article about it on Washington Post. It is too long to post from my Kindle Fire and is behind a paywall. If you, or someone you care about, is in need of joint surgery, the price of a trial membership is worth it for this article alone. An Orthopedic Surgeon I consulted with, told me that prices of appliances has skyrocketed. The cost for a hip replacement appliance alone is now 70,000 pesos
