Stem Cell

STEM CELL THERAPY

Medication and surgery are fundamental aspects of modern medicine.  Without them, we would still be susceptible to death from an infection or a burst appendix.  However, the body itself has a tremendous and, uniquely yours, ability to heal itself through healthy tissue turnover (regeneration) of those tissues when they die (apoptosis). Finally, there is a safe and effective place for self-healing biologics such as Stem Cell Therapies are at the leading edge of regenerative medicine and only realized after extensive research indicated the risks as well as the benefits associated with their use.

Why stem cells?

The human body is made of billions of cells that are specialized to form specific organs like the skin, muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments, brain, and bone. Every day these cells undergo a degenerative and regenerative process. As the older cells die, new cells are created from stem cells (duplication) with the unique capability of being able to change into other types of other cells (Mesenchymal). Stem cells, themselves, are undifferentiated or are cells that are like a blank canvas. In effect, they have the capability of developing into cells that serve numerous functions in different parts of the body based upon the body’s need for healing or tissue regeneration. Most cells in the body are differentiated cells because their purpose is to serve a specific function in a particular organ. However, when tissues are injured or the regenerative process slows due to age or illness, the degenerative process exceeds the body’s capability to rebuild, resulting in weaker, painful and less functional structures. There are four main types of stem cells:

  • Embryonic
  • Tissue-specific
  • Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)
  • Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs)

While there are several types of stem cells, those promoting musculoskeletal (MSK) healing (tendon, ligament, cartilage, and bone) can be found in bone marrow, which acts as a type of stem cell reservoir.  Through the extraction of stem cells from bone marrow, we concentrate the cells and subsequently re-inject them into other areas of the body to treat injured tissues. The supercharged effect this produces is an enhancement of the body’s natural repair process of degenerated and injured tendons, ligaments, and arthritic joints.  This process occurs daily and is the body’s defense against the natural breakdown process that occurs from aging, injury, and overuse.

How are stem cells being used in our practice?

Our team provides these non-surgical therapies to our patients suffering from chronic musculoskeletal pain; wanting skin revitalization; or even erectile dysfunction or vaginal rejuvenation. While before surgery was the only option, we can now treat degenerative conditions and injuries with your own stem cells as a viable alternative to invasive surgery.

If you are suffering from one of the following conditions, you may be a candidate for Stem Cell treatments:

Chronic ankle strain / sprainSkin revitalization
Chronic back painTear of the meniscus
Chronic neck painTennis elbow
Erectile dysfunctionVaginal rejuvenation
Golfer’s elbowWrist strain or tendonitis
Hip pain

If you are seeking the most advanced solutions in Regenerative Medicine, we would look forward to scheduling a complimentary, highly customized consultation.
