To heal joint injuries using stem cells instead of operations is it a better way to go ?

Anyone with any experience with being treated with stem cells or know of someone that has been treated what are your thoughts on stem cells ?

No personal experience but I did some search in PubMed a couple of years ago when my knees started to squeak and ake. Some random info:

Cell-based therapy
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28825779
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5347439/

Exercise therapy or placebo equal or better than surgery?
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4957588/
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29420232

"..meniscal tear observed [with radiology/MRI] in 35% of persons older than 50 years of age; two thirds of these tears are asymptomatic."

Knee surgery probably results in osteoarthritis in a couple of years. Source?

Radiology/MRI is not the exact diagnostic tool you think it is.
