What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy uses a patient’s own stem cells to treat minor to moderate conditions formally where surgery would be the primary option. Stem cell therapy is an alternative to surgery through an office based procedure. Through advanced technology stem cell therapy is now a quick and easy alternative to surgery.
What are stem cells?
Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body during early life and growth. In addition, in many tissues they serve as of internal repair system, dividing essentially without limit to replenish other cells .When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential either to remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell.
Stem cells are the only cells in the body able to morph into other types of specialized cells. Stem cells are found in many parts of the body but are concentrated in the bone marrow. Through a simple and nearly painless office procedure a small amount of bone marrow can be aspirated from the patient and then concentrated with a centrifuge. The stem cells are then re-injected back into the site of injury or damage. When the patient’s own stem cells are injected into a damaged joint, they appear to amplify the body’s own natural repair efforts by reducing inflammation, accelerating healing, and preventing scarring and loss of function. It is not only a powerful approach to all stages of arthritis but can be used for treatment of ligament, tendon, cartilage, and even bone problems.
Regenerative Growth Factors
Stem cells have high natural growth factors that promote healing. These growth factors also naturally decrease inflammation.
