Stem Cell Therapy

What are stem cells?

In recent years, stem cells have been popular within the medical community thanks to their regenerative properties and the remarkable potential they hold for treating illnesses. Stem cells hold the potential to develop into many different cell types. Their abilities to transform at a moment’s notice make stem cells a game-changer in medical science and offer doctors new possibilities for treating diseases like diabetes and heart disease, as well as injuries affecting the joints and ligaments. They also function as an internal maintenance system, dividing without limits and replenishing surrounding cells in the process. As stem cells divide, the new cells will either remain stem cells or develop into another type of cell with a specialized function, such as a brain cell, muscle cell or red blood cell.  In some areas of the body, like the gut or bone marrow, stem cells regularly divide and repair damaged, worn tissues.

How does stem cell therapy work?

During stem cell therapy, a medical professional will inject stem cells into your body at the site of injury. Before the procedure, the cells are manipulated to specialize into specific types of cells, depending on your injury. Once injected, the cells will go to work repairing damaged tissues, accelerating the healing process, and healing tissue that would have otherwise remained damaged. Now, instead of opting for invasive surgery, patients have a safe, natural and effective treatment for joint disorders and more. Your doctor can potentially combine PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy with Stem Cell Therapy, in some situations. Consult your doctor for more information about how these therapies may interact.

What can stem cell therapy treat?

Stem cell therapy can be used to treat a variety of illnesses and disorders, including the following:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Joint Injuries: Knee, Ankles, Hand, Back, Hip, Shoulder, etc.
  • Immune Disorders
  • Metabolic Disorders
  • Rotator Cuff Tears

How long does stem cell therapy take, and when will I see results?

In most cases, a single stem cell therapy treatment will only take about four hours and is an outpatient procedure. Recovery time varies depending on your condition. You may experience mild discomfort at the injection site after treatment. However, you will most likely be able to return to regular activity the next day.
