What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cells are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to replace dying cells and regenerate damaged tissue. A high concentration of these cells are obtained from the patient’s own bone marrow, or fat tissues (adipose), or from a purified amniotic tissue. Once obtained, the cells are isolated with a specialized centrifuge and then injected into the painful area on the same day using special imaging to make sure the cells are placed exactly where they are needed. Speak with your physician about which regenerative medicine technique would be right for you and your injury.
Adult stem cells usually remain dormant unless they detect some kind of tissue injury. Then the ‘undifferentiated’ stem cells are called to areas of injury where they are capable of regenerating healthy cells. Sometimes our body’s own healing response is not enough. That’s when a concentrated source of stem cells is needed.
Stem Cell therapy obtains high concentrations of cells to create an environment for the body to heal itself without the need for medications or steroid injections. When stem cells are injected into an area of injury, they enable the body’s natural healing processes to be dramatically accelerated. The cells can stimulate the formation of many different types of tissue including cartilage, tendon, ligaments, bone and fibrous connective tissues.
1. No need for hospital stay
2. No Anesthesia
3. No prolonged recovery
4. Back to work the next day
Most patients find themselves back in their daily routine the day after the procedure. Healing gradually happens over the course of 12 weeks and can continue for up to 12+ months.
