Stem Cell Therapy

Regenerative medicine holds the promise to create and repair parts of our bodies damaged due to age, injury or disease. Areas like arthritic knees, damaged spinal discs, or painful hips that are resistant to other treatments. One area of regenerative medicine involves the use of “stem cells” which have the power to naturally regenerate damaged tissues with may restore function not just mask pain.

Our office has been on the forefront of regenerative injection treatments as one of its early adopters. Our team of board certified regenerative medicine specialists has been able to give some patients relief who have otherwise been disabled due to pain. While this is by no means a miracle it does hold promise to improve the lives of patients who have been told that surgery or pain medications are their only choice.

Stem Cell Therapy – Frequently Asked Questions

Stem cells are the body’s master cells. They are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to transform into a variety of different cells and replace dying cells, and the potential of rebuilding damaged tissue, muscles, tendons or ligaments. Stem cells are used to generate repair of body structures. By concentrating these and injecting them into body structures, the stem cells transform into other cells, which repairs the body. Stem cell therapy treatments are unique because they help the body jump start the healing process. Concentrated stem cells procedures can be used instead of orthopedic surgery to repair torn meniscus, damaged tendons, and joint arthritis.

There are a number of different means to access stem cells. These kinds of cells can be taken from bone marrow, fat, placenta, and from umbilical tissue. Our clinic utilizes bone marrow, which is obtained by direct aspiration from the iliac bone.

Right now the world of stem cell therapy is exploding with new orthopedic advancements all the time. Many of the procedures have not yet been FDA approved but there has been exciting success using stem cells to treat some cases of chronic joint pain (like knee, hip, ankle, foot, elbow, hand, shoulder), chronic neck and lumbar spine pain (like degenerative disc disease, disc herniations, sacroiliac joint pain), and ligament and tendon injuries (rotator cuff tears, Achilles tendon issues, tennis elbow). We have even used stem cell therapy to help patients recover faster from traditional orthopedic surgeries so they get can get back to activities faster. It seems the potential usefulness appears to grow as we learn more how to use these amazing cells.

Two advantages of a stem cell injection over surgery are:

  • No need for hospital stay
  • No prolonged recovery

Most patients find themselves back in their daily routine the day after the procedure. Healing gradually happens over the course of 2-6 weeks and can continue for up to 12+ months.
