Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy uses your body's most flexible cells, the stem cells, to alleviate pain and repair damage within your body. Stem cells are known as the human body's building blocks because they're basic cells that can transform into any specific kind of cell in the body.

Stem cells can turn into new "daughter" stem cells, blood cells, brain cells, muscle cells, or any other type of cells that your body needs. During stem cell therapy, your doctor places stem cells isolated from your own bone marrow into the area where you're injured or have pain so they can transform into the type of cell needed to heal you.

How does stem cell therapy work?

Stem cell therapy at Pain Medicine Consultants is a simple outpatient process. Your doctor places local anesthesia in your hip and then removes a small quantity of bone marrow from your hip bone.

Your doctor places the bone marrow sample into a state-of-the-art centrifuge, which spins the sample at high speed to separate the stem cells from the rest of your bone marrow. Your doctor then injects your stem cells directly into the area where you're injured or hurting, using X-ray or ultrasound guidance to ensure ideal placement.

What happens after stem cell therapy?

One of the major advantages of stem cell therapy over surgery is that you don't need to stay in the hospital or even take much time off work. Most patients resume their regular routine the day after their stem cell therapy procedure.

Your stem cells go to work over a period of 2-6 weeks, helping you heal and reducing your pain. You can expect continued results for up to a year or even longer in most cases.

Can I have an allergic reaction to stem cell therapy?

No. Stem cell therapy at Pain Medicine Consultants uses stem cells taken from your own bone marrow. Your physician uses new needles for bone marrow aspiration and for stem cell injection in the injured or painful area to ensure that there's no danger to you.

Stem cell therapy is a straightforward procedure and is tightly controlled at all times by your physician, so you can expect a safe and reliable procedure.
