Stem Cell Therapy for Joints & Joint Disease

As we age, we are more prone to injuries because we start losing important cellular proteins and factors that contribute to healthy joints and bones. The aging process also interferes with the ability of our bodies to heal properly from injuries or degenerative damage. All this translates in joint pain, swelling and stiffness, which interfere with living a healthy and happy life. Stem cell therapy restores the balance in the injured tissues by enhancing the body’s own natural healing process.

The stem cells are harvested through a mini-liposuction in office procedure or through bone marrow extraction (or both). These procedures are very safe, comfortable and can be done under local anesthesia. After the sample is collected, the patient is dressed and is able to relax comfortably while the cells are processed. The cells are isolated in our cell laboratory through sterile technique using minimal manipulation. A stem cell pellet is obtained at the end of the process, which yields millions of viable stem cells.

At the same time, blood is drawn from the patient to obtain Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), a blood component that contains natural growth factors. The PRP is also injected in the site of injury. These growth factors send signals for other cells to join the healing and repair process of the tissues.

Adult Stem Cell Therapy aids in the repair and recovery of injuries and conditions like:

  • Degenerative diseases, such as Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
  • Joint Disease
  • Muscle sprains and tears
  • Sport Injuries (meniscus, ligaments, tendons); Knees, Shoulders and Elbows
  • Knee and Hip Pain
  • Back or Spinal Injuries
