STEM CELL THERAPY
Get back to doing what you love, faster and without surgery. SAY NO TO KNEE PAIN!
Stem Cell Therapy, can help you achieve these goals. Stem Cells are responsible for healing injured bone, ligaments, tendons and tissues. As we get older or injured, we sometimes cannot get enough of these cells into the area in need. Stem Cell procedure can help solve that problem by precisely delivering a high concentration of stem cells into the injured area and aiding your body’s ability to heal naturally.
Not all stem cell procedures are created equal, nor are the doctors who perform these procedures. Dr. Weber-Lopez is part of an elite network of musculoskeletal specialists; leaders in the rapidly growing field of regenerative medicine.
Stem Cell Therapy Q & A
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cell therapy is an option for those looking for an alternative to surgery or potentially total joint replacement. Regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy allows a human body to naturally heal. It stimulates healthy cell growth and regenerates healthy tissue. Stem cell therapies have a multitude of growth factors producing cells. Growth factors are proteins naturally found in the body that promote the growth of cells and tissues.
What conditions can Stem Cell Therapy treat?
Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of chronic joint pain. Osteoarthritis involves the entire joint, including the nearby muscles, underlying bone, ligaments and connective tissue. In osteoarthritis, the supportive tissue called cartilage degenerates, leading to inflammation and pain. This type of arthritis is common in shoulders, hips, knees, hands and feet. Patients will often complain of joint stiffness, throbbing, and swelling. There is no cure for osteoarthritis, but regenerative medicine therapies such as stem cell therapy is a new generation of treatment that has been proven to be safe, effective, and have lasting results. Stem cell therapy not only promotes long term pain relief but a significant restoration of normal functions.
How does this procedure work?
Regenerative therapy procedures are performed as outpatient procedures. They involve injection of concentrated stem cells to regenerate and heal tissues in joints, muscles, tendons, or ligaments. These therapies can be used to treat acute or chronic pain conditions related to degenerative disease, arthritis and tendon injury. Stem cells are shown to be capable of accelerating the healing process.
Stem Cell therapy is a fairly simple procedure that requires a couple of hours in our clinic. Patients typically require no downtime from the procedure, as it is a simple injection procedure that requires no anesthesia and little recovery time.
Patients may experience improvements within the first couple of weeks, with continued improvements over time. Not all stem cell procedures are created equal, nor are the doctors who perform these procedures.
