About stem cell therapy

There have been tremendous advancements in pain management over the past years. Our equipment has improved. Our interventional techniques continue to progress. And the technology is developing rapidly.

One treatment option that has recently generated a great deal of excitement is the use of stem cell therapy. Stem cell therapy is a cutting-edge regenerative treatment that is used to help accelerate the healing of damaged tissue.

Currently, conditions such as osteoarthritis are frequently treated with medications and/or steroid injections. Steroids are extremely effective in reducing inflammation in the joint, but unfortunately does not regenerate tissue. Therefore, over time, the symptoms of osteoarthritis may worsen. Regenerative therapy offers an opportunity to improve the patient’s quality of life and can be used to treat a variety of different conditions.

About stem cells

Stem cells are the originating cells from which all other cells are generated. Stem cells can divide to form more cells called daughter cells. These daughter cells can become new stem cells (self-renewal) or become specialized cells (differentiation) with a more specific function. This self-renewal process may continue and ultimately, there is an opportunity to use these cells to regenerate tissue.

There are a variety of ways these stem cells can be collected.  Our physicians are able to use advanced interventional techniques to extract your bone marrow or fat. That product can then be concentrated and the target stem cells isolated. These cells can then be injected into the area of pain.

As an alternative, stem cells can be collected from external sources.  For example, Wharton’s jelly is a substance found within the umbilical cord.  This substance can be extracted, cultured and induced to differentiate into mature cells.  Those cells can then be injected into the source of the patient’s pain.
