As an alternative to orthopedic surgery, patients traditionally seek treatments such as an injection of cartilage substitutes or steroids. Despite some short-term relief, steroids actually damage tissues over time and are not a viable long-term option.
Joint Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of the joint components, both cartilage and bone. Experts agree that stem cells may help in the repair of osteoarthritis in many ways, since they may act as anti-inflammatory mediators, or forming new cartilage or bone cells, by differentiation. Each individual patient will be evaluated to determine the potential success with stem cell therapy.
Patients coping with arthritis, sports injuries, tendon strains, sprained ligaments, muscle injuries and more, will be comforted to know that surgery is not the only option of treatment available to them. Faster healing as well as improved functionality both are possible with innovative, cutting- edge adult stem cell treatments.
There are breakthroughs in non-surgical treatments for people suffering from knee pain due to common injuries to the knee meniscus, ACL or MCL. If you are experiencing cartilage damage or degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis, traditional options for patients suffering from these conditions include…
- Arthroscopic knee surgery
- Repair ligament tears
- Total knee joint replacement.
Now, there are new ways to aid in the destruction of cartilage in your knees. Results show alternatives to surgery and Stem Cell Therapy is being recommended by more scientists and doctors every week. Stem cell research offers unprecedented opportunities for developing new treatments for debilitating diseases for which there are few or no cures.
Among the knee injuries and conditions that may be treated with stem cells include:
- Arthritis / Osteoarthritis
- Knee ligament injuries, like sprains and tears (MCL, ACL, PCL or LCL)
- Patellar tendonitis
- Meniscus tear
- Knee Instability
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease that can affect any joint in your body, including your hips. Over time, due to aging, trauma or other factors, the cartilage that cushions your joints starts to break down. Without cartilage, your joint bones rub together when you move. The bone-on-bone action creates pain, stiffness, and can limit your mobility. This is especially true with OA of the hip, as the hip contains large joints that carry your body’s weight with each step you take. Treatment options for hip arthritis range from lifestyle modifications to pain management, exercise programs, and even surgery.
Non-surgical stem cell injection procedures happen within a single day and may offer a viable alternative for those who are facing surgery or hip replacement. Patients are far less vulnerable to the serious risks associated with traumatic hip surgeries, such as infection and blood clots.
Our patients quickly return to normal activity following their procedure and are able to avoid the painful and lengthy rehabilitation periods that are required following hip surgery to help restore…
A common sources of shoulder pain is arthritis: which is a degenerative process causing pain, swelling, stiffness, and disability. Minor shoulder issues, for example, sore muscles and a throbbing painfulness, are regular. Shoulder pain develops from ordinary wear and tear, overuse, or a damage.
