Seana Hogan

Race Across America 2016 Record holder, Women’s Age 50-59

Long distance cycling champion Seana Hogan holds the world record for the transcontinental bicycle race set in 1999 and has won the race 7 times. However in 2003 she sustained a tibial plateau fracture which subsequently left her with chronic knee pain and bone on bone cartilage changes in her right knee.

On September 2014, Seana Hogan underwent a procedure performed by Dr. Jeffrey Riopelle in which cells were taken by liposuctioning fat from her abdomen under local anesthesia. Regenerative cells were removed from the fat and these cells were then mixed with platelet rich plasma from her blood and injected into her knee.

Women's Cycling Transcontinental Record Holder, Race Across America 2015

“It was to the point that I ached all the time and was painful while riding my bike especially after long rides. I could no longer compete in such long distances.”

“I had a lifetime goal of setting the transcontinental world record for 50+. It was painstaking and emotional to give up on that goal. Because of the Advanced Joint Pain Relief procedure that Dr. Riopelle performed, I am now registered and I’m going to race in June. In a short period of time I went from being totally devastated to having my dreams fulfilled again. Now after long rides I don’t have the ache anymore. It’s pretty much a miracle.”

“I started feeling improvement within 4 to 6 weeks. I noticed a difference in my gait. I wasn’t prone to limping. I had this idea I was going to be limping the rest of my life and after 4 to 6 weeks I could extend my leg far enough that the limp wasn’t there anymore. It’s now been 6 months and the change has been just remarkable. I can ride my bicycle without pain; I can sit without pain and cross my legs. The range of motion is quite a bit more than I had before and the pain is reduced dramatically. I bike about 300 to 400 miles per week now and so far so good.”

“Everyone I talk to who has joint issues, I say ‘you have to talk to Dr Riopelle’- this technology is incredible.”
