Regenerative Medicine therapies are performed as outpatient procedures. They involve an injection of concentrated growth factors or stem cells to regenerate and heal tissues in degenerative spinal discs, joints, muscles, tendons or ligaments.
These therapies can be used to treat acute or chronic pain conditions related to degenerative disease. Regenerative therapies include obtaining concentrated platelets, growth factors or adult stem cells to accelerate the healing process.
The bone marrow is a rich source of adult stem cells. The bone marrow is usually acquired from the iliac crest with a special collecting system. It’s then spun at a high speed to isolate the stem cells from the sample. This is a quick and simple outpatient procedure performed by a qualified doctor in a safe environment.
Fat tissue is also another rich source of adult stem cells. The fat tissue is usually taken from the abdomen with a special collecting system. Once a sample is obtained it is spun at a high speed to isolate the stem cells. This procedure is performed safely by a doctor and takes only a couple hours to perform.
Stem cell therapy is a very simple and safe outpatient procedure that is performed by a qualified physician. It’s easy as 1, 2, 3!
The stem cells are then carefully injected into the site where the damaged tissue exists and the healing and regeneration begins!
Stem cell therapy procedures can treat a wide variety of conditions including, but not limited to:
If you don’t see your condition listed please contact a regenerative medicine doctor to see if you are a candidate for stem cell therapy.
Two advantages of a stem cell injection over surgery are:
Most patients find themselves back in their daily routine the day after the procedure. Healing gradually happens over the course of 2-6 weeks and can continue for up to 6 months.
