Orthopedic Stem Cell Therapy
Avoid surgery, shorten healing time and limit pain with one of the few full-service stem cell/platelet rich plasma specialists.
Stem cell therapy can have amazing healing and anti-pain effects for joints and soft tissues. These sophisticated technologies can be used to address conditions like arthritis, degenerative disc disease, muscle/ligament tears, tendinitis, sports-related injuries and more. If you’re looking to avoid surgery, shorten healing time and limit pain, then come speak to one of the few full-service stem cell specialists in the nation.
Stem cells are the crucial building blocks of all tissues in the body. They repair connective tissue and joint damage that accrues not only during strenuous athletic endeavors, but also with daily wear and tear. As we age, the ability to recruit an adequate number of stem cells to problem areas diminishes. Recovery is prolonged and injuries linger. Our procedures overcome these problems by extracting stem cells from their source, concentrating them in number and directly injecting them at the site of injury. Precision is of paramount importance for an optimal outcome. Therefore, our harvesting and injection procedures are performed with the expertise of guided ultrasound and x-ray.
Potential candidates have typically tried other medical options for treating their issue with no results. Popular among athletes, stem cell therapies are for people looking for a noninvasive treatment for their ailments.
WHAT TO KNOW AND EXPECT
- Various clinics have deliberately taken great liberties with using stem cell and other regenerative terminology to describe treatments they offer that in actuality are neither stem cell nor regenerative. We take tremendous pride in our field of practice and regardless of whether you decide to ultimately work with us, we’d be happy to answer any lingering questions that arise from your own research.
- We’re one of the few clinics in the nation to be able to harvest stem cells from multiple body sites and will gladly discuss the modality most fitting for your specific situation.
- Avoid aspirin or other anti-inflammatory medications about a week prior to the procedure.
- Level of discomfort during and after treatment varies from person to person and based on the specifics of the procedure. We have the ability to administer medications for pain and sedation as needed.
- Following the procedure, we recommend that a responsible friend or family member drive you home and that you rest for the first 24-48 hours.
- For the next two weeks, light cardiovascular exertion is allowed as long as there is no unnecessary strain put on the treated area. After four weeks, both running and weightlifting are allowed, again being mindful of the treated area.
- It is advised to refrain from taking any anti-inflammatory medications for at least two weeks following your procedure.
Because of our personalized approach to each patient’s individual situation and unique needs, it is impossible to predict what any one regimen looks like prior to an initial consultation. We work with you to learn your needs and determine the right treatment for your unique situation.
