The goal of stem cell therapy is to help relieve or decrease pain from injury or damage from arthritic conditions. Stem cells can then be used to help regenerate damaged or injured areas.
Stem cell therapy is a nonsurgical interventional treatment that introduces new adult stem cells collected from the patient into damaged areas in order to treat the disease or injury.
Since stem cells are “undifferentiated” cells they have the potential to become any cell in the body. When these cells are placed into a certain environment, they can transform into the type of cells needed to create balance in that specific area.
When surgery is necessary, we also offer stem cell therapy as an adjunct to help improve healing and recovery.
The Stem Cell Therapy Procedure
Stem cell therapy is administered by injecting the stem cells into the damaged areas such as the discs or facets. The stem cells are collected from the patient’s pelvic (hip) bone marrow. In some cases, the stem cell therapy can be administered in one session in an office setting without the need for general anesthesia.
