What is Stem Cell therapy?
Stem cells are specialized cells within your body that have the capacity to heal, re-build and regenerate a wide array of tissues.
Stem cell therapy is a non-surgical procedure that involves extracting stem cells from your bone marrow and injecting them into areas of tissue damage that has been unable to heal on its own. This therapy harnesses the regenerative healing capacity of your body’s cells to accelerate the natural healing process and repair the damage.
Stem cell therapy, and the specialty of Regenerative Medicine, is rapidly evolving with advancements in technology and a better understanding of the application of this incredible therapy based on more than ten years of use in the United States.
It is considered to be the breakthrough, less-invasive, natural healing treatment that has long been needed in orthopedic medicine.
What conditions can be effectively treated with Stem Cell therapy?
- Overuse injuries to joints including ankles, knee, hip and shoulders
- Overuse injuries of muscle tendons and ligaments
- Joint arthritis
- Spine arthritis
- Persistent neck, mid-back, and low back pain
- Pain associated with degenerative disc disease of the spine
More specific injuries treated include:
- Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylosis
- Golfer’s elbow, or medial epicondylosis
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Knee ligament tears
- Shin splints
- Partial thickness rotator cuff tears
- Plantar fasciitis
- Patellar tendinitis or tendinopathy
- Achilles tendonitis
- IT band syndrome
- Hip bursitis, or greater trochanter pain syndrome
What are the benefits of Stem Cell therapy?
The most substantial benefit of stem cell therapy is that is a minimally invasive and non-surgical treatment that works with your body to heal injuries or chronic damaged tissue.
Accelerated healing and regeneration leads to decreased pain that can last for years, or may even be permanent when treating certain conditions.
The recovery time is much different than with surgical procedures. Following treatment patients are able to initiate rehabilitation and return to activity much sooner than with most surgical treatments.
Why should you consider Stem Cell therapy?
If you have been dealing with an acute or chronic injury, persistent pain, or diminished quality of life due to a painful condition, you may be a candidate for stem cell therapy.
When other treatments have not been able to deliver a satisfactory outcome, improve or return the quality of life you desire, then you should consider exploring stem cell therapy.
Are you a candidate for Stem Cell therapy?
Not all patients or conditions qualify for stem cell therapy.
If you are currently being treated for cancer, have been treated in the past for certain types of cancer (such as lymphoma), or have active infection or compromised immune system, you may not be a candidate for this treatment.
Our board-certified physicians conduct a thorough consultation to determine if this treatment is safe and appropriate for your condition.
