A personal testimony from professional soccer player Diego Lugano
Diego Lugano, captain of the Uraguay Soccer team, presented his testimonial at The Ortho Biologic conference (TOBI) in 2018 in Las Vegas. Here is his story.
A knee injury playing soccer
Diego was a long time Professional soccer player, quite famous in Uraguay, who tore his medial collateral ligament in 2014.
He then developed knee arthritis with intense pain. His MRI showed damage to the underlying bone in June of 2014 and he was advised
to “STOP PLAYING SOCCER”! Diego was told to he needed knee surgery.
Like many of us, Diego knew the negatives of major joint arthritis surgery. He knew his career would be over. He knew that he had
a good chance of suffering chronic pain post surgery. He did not want to stop soccer, nor to have knee arthritis surgery.
So instead, Diego Lugano saw Dr. Steve Sampson October 2014 and asked about the possibility of stem cell treatment.
He decided that Stem cell was the right answer for him, and he had the stem cell knee arthritis procedure.
What happened next?
What happened next was what Diego’s Orthopedic surgeon did not expect. Diego improved. His pain resolved. Diego continued to play soccer.
Diego still plays soccer and as I write this he has NOT had knee surgery.
At the TOBI conference in front of hundreds of physician guests, Diego testified that the stem cell procedure gave him pain relief. He has no more knee swelling, no more pain, good motion and since the procedure he has played more than 100 consecutive games without pain.
In summary, this professional soccer player suffered pain and swelling in his knee daily from arthritic changes. He was advised to STOP playing soccer, but he did not want to do so. In light of that he sought other opinions and finally chose to have bone marrow cell therapy (the same thing we use), which he attributes with prolonging his career by years. Diego says this therapy relieved his knee pain and swelling without surgery.
