6 time NBA All-Star player, Pau Gasol, was struggling with knee pain during the 2013 season and had an injury that put him on crutches. Gasol received what is known as a Fast technique procedure. The procedure, whose name stands for Focused Aspiration of Scar Tissue, involved inserting a probe into Gasol’s knees that directed ultrasound waves to remove degenerated tissue in his patellar tendons nonsurgically. In addition to this, Gasol received autologous stem cell injections to help stimulate regeneration in his tissue. Within 3 weeks, Gasol made a quick recovery and was back walking again without crutches.
