Andrew Bynum is "seriously contemplating" undergoing the Regenokine knee therapy program, according to a report from the New York Post. The therapy is based in Germany because it is still not approved in the United States by the FDA.
Regenokine is a non-surgical program that uses injections to help grow new cartilage. Per the Post, Bynum is considering doing the program with German doctor Peter Wehling, who has worked with New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez and Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant. Regenokine is similar to the PRP therapy Bryant used, though not identical.
Bynum has played just 26 games the last two seasons due to various knee injuries, as well as reported behavioral problems. In 2011-12, his last full season, Bynum made the West All-Star team and averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds per game.
