Stem Cell Therapy

A Modern Day Solution for Joint Pain and Injuries.
If you suffer from joint pain or have soft tissue injuries, your own stem cells may be the answer.

Stem Cell Therapy offers a viable alternative for individuals who are suffering from joint pain, or who may be considering joint replacement due to injury or arthritis. Patients avoid the lengthy periods of downtime, and extensive rehabilitation that typically follow invasive surgeries.

Stem Cell Therapy and Regenerative Medicine are treatment options that may promote repair of bone, tendon, muscle, ligament, and cartilage (arthritic joints). Using your own adult stem cells may help heal your tissue.

Stem cells can be obtained by harvesting bone marrow with a minimally invasive technique. The stem cells are injected at the site of damaged tissue. This procedure may benefit patients with arthritic joints, bone that has not healed (nonunion), or soft tissue problems such as Achilles tendinitis or ruptures, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff disease, tennis elbow, and other conditions.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is another injection technique that may help heal damaged tissue. PRP is obtained from blood drawn from the patient, and concentrated by a centrifugation process. PRP is believed to provide a high concentration of protein growth factors that could be beneficial for healing of acute or chronic soft tissue injuries. This includes Achilles tendinitis, patellar tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, muscle strains, rotator cuff tears, and other conditions.
