Stem Cell Treatment
Goal: The goal of stem cell therapy is to help relieve or decrease pain from injury or damaged areas from arthritic conditions. Stem cells can then be used to help regenerate damaged or injured areas of the body such as painful arthritic joints.
Benefits: Stem cell therapy is a nonsurgical interventional treatment that introduces new adult stem cells collected from the patient into damaged areas such as joints in order to treat the disease or injury. Stem cells have the ability to become different cells that can then produce specialized types of cells such as cartilage.
Stems cells can be used to help treat painful conditions such as:
– Hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow and wrist arthritis or injury
– Back or neck pain
– Tendon injuries
– Tendinitis or inflammation of tendons
Stem cell therapy is administered by injecting the stem cells into the damaged areas such as the joint or tendon. The stem cells are collected from the patient’s pelvic (hip) bone marrow in an office setting without the need for general anesthesia.
Stem cell therapy is a very safe procedure. Most common symptom is discomfort at the injection site.
Since this is a non-surgical treatment recovery is very rapid with little to no “down” time.
