What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cell Therapy utilizes the patient’s own stem cells to replace
dying cells and regenerate damaged tissue to eliminate pain. These cells
are obtained from the patient’s own bone marrow or fat tissues through
a sterile closed surgical process. The cells are isolated in a centrifuge
and injected into the pain site to begin healing. The cells are collected
and injected on the same day using specialized imaging technology to ensure
the most effective treatment.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
Stem Cell Therapy accelerates the body’s own natural healing processes
and is effective for treating pain. When the body is injured, adult stem
cells are dispatched to the area of the injury to regenerate healthy cells,
but this isn’t always enough. Stem Cell Therapy collects concentrated
amounts of stem cells from healthy areas of the body, and injects the
cells directly into the area of injury. Stem Cell Therapy is effective
for many types of tissue including cartilage, tendons, ligaments, bone,
and fibrous connective tissue. Stem Cell Therapy reduces pain and promotes
healing without the need for pain medications or steroid injections.

Some Important Questions
Is Stem Cell Therapy Right For Me?
You may be considering stem cell therapy if you suffer from ongoing pain
from an injury or if you are currently managing pain through medication
or injection therapy. Stem Cell Therapy is a relatively new procedure
and is not yet covered by most insurances. We want to provide the best
treatment options for your pain, and will review your specific situation
and treatment options with you.
What is the Healing Time And Process?
Each Stem Cell Therapy procedure is performed in our medical office and
usually takes less than an hour to complete. It does not require surgery,
general anesthesia, or hospital stays. Most people find they can return
to work the day after receiving Stem Cell Therapy, but strenuous physical
exercise should be avoided for several weeks afterwards to promote healing
and to prevent injury.
