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.
