Stem cell therapy
Human stem cells are in your body to generate new and replacement cells, originating and repairing bone, muscle, cartilage, spinal discs and other specialized cells.
Stem cell treatments have been used successfully to treat joint injuries and age-related joint degeneration, including osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.
Medical researchers have known for years that stem-cell treatments have the potential to change the face of human aging and alleviate suffering. The capacity for stem cells to self-renew and give rise to ensuing generations offers potential for groups of tissues that can potentially replace diseased and damaged areas in the body, with minimal risk of rejection and side effects.
Your stem cells can build new cartilage, ligament and tendon tissue and restore the joint’s original function. Stem-cell treatment is an alternative to joint replacement surgery. It is non-surgical and minimally invasive. It is low-risk: it doesn’t permanently alter your structure with foreign materials as with joint replacement surgery. It leaves your options open.
Stem cells are the “big guns” of regenerative joint-repair therapy. The treatment concentrates your own stem cells at the site of an injury to exploit their ability to develop into the specific cell types needed to repair and restore your injured joint.
For stem-cell treatment, we will collect stem cells from your body, concentrate them and then precisely place them where healing is needed. Your body’s own healing process will take over from there.
Many of our patients have experienced significantly reduced pain with this treatment.
