Here's an article shedding a bit more light on the procedure.

To summarize the article Michaleks looking at:

- A 75% success rate
- Results lasting 2-4 years
- 6-10 weeks for the knee to respond to the injections

I found it interesting/relieving that several high profile athletes (Kobe Bryant, A-Rod, Tiger Woods) all received the same treatment, so if anything it looks like hes in good hands.
