In this thesis, I introduce the disease of osteoarthritis and the popular treatments in use for patients today. I will pay specific attention to the knee replacement because it is the most common treatment for end stage osteoarthritis. Finally, I will look at the up and coming stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis of the knee through an examination of case studies currently being run around the world. To conclude, I will suggest which treatment appears to be the best treatment for each specific patient.
