What Is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cells therapy is clinically proven to effectively treat pain and repair damaged tissues. Stem cells are the body's "building block" cells. They are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to transform into a variety of different cells, replace dying cells, and regenerate damaged tissue. Stem cells are derived from your own body's bone marrow.

Stem Cell Therapy Stem cell therapy is a very simple and safe outpatient procedure.

Step 1 - Removal of bone marrow from hip bone.

Step 2 - Once a sample of your bone marrow has been obtained the stem cells are isolated and concentrated with a specialized centrifuge.

Step 3 -The stem cells are carefully injected into the site utilizing an x-ray or ultrasound machine to precisely guide the cells to where the injury exists and then the healing and regeneration begins.

What is the recovery time?

Two advantages of a stem cell injection over surgery are:

  • No need for hospital stay
  • No prolonged recovery

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 12+ months.

What are the results & benefits of stem cell therapy?

Some of the benefits of stem cell injection:

  • Uses your body's own cells to heal
  • Outpatient procedure
  • Simple Procedural Process
  • Quick Recovery
  • Back to work the same or next day

What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is super concentrated growth factors that stimulate healing and regeneration of injured tissues, muscles, tendons or ligaments. PRP is derived from your own body and is 100% natural. PRP injections are an increasingly popular alternative to surgery. Whether you are an elite athlete or a "Weekend Warrior" PRP and Stem Cell Therapy are effective and safe nonsurgical therapy to speed healing and treat pain.

PRP’s natural healing process intensifies your body’s efforts by delivering a high concentration of regenerative growth factors directly into the damaged tissues.

Platelet rich plasma is a very simple and safe nonsurgical procedure that is performed by a qualified physician. It's easy as 1, 2, 3.

Step 1 -A small sample of your blood is drawn and collected into a special device.

Step 2 -The special device is then centrifuged at a high speed to isolate the pure PRP.

Step 3 -Once the PRP has been isolated it is ready to be injected into your affected site. It is carefully injected using image guidiance, such as an x-ray machine or ultrasound machine to ensure proper placement of PRP and jumpstart the healing process.

Where does platelet rich plasma (PRP) come from?

To harvest PRP, a small sample of your blood is drawn into a specialized collecting system. This blood is centrifuged at high speeds to isolate and concentrate the growth factors. Because your own blood is used there is no risk of a transmissible infection.

What should I expect from PRP treatment?

PRP is a safe non-surgical procedure that stimulates healing and treats acute and chronic pain. Although recovery times can vary patients generally begin to see improvement in pain and mobility within 4 to 6 weeks and improvement will continue for up to 12 months.

Cost of the treatment may vary depending area of tissue damage and type of injection. Financing may be available. Please call today for a consultation!
