Adult Stem Cell Therapy
Changing non-surgical orthopedics forever
Human adult stem cells are providing groundbreaking treatments for many orthopedic injuries. These special cells have the unique ability to change to any other cell type needed for healing and repairing of damaged tissue, as well as regenerate and repair bone, ligament, tendon, cartilage and muscle.
Due to recent improvements in modern medicine, adult stem cells (different from the controversial embryonic stem cells) can now be obtained through a simple medical procedure directly from the patient in a painless process – done right in the office. The stem cells are then reintroduced to the injured body part, to begin the natural healing process. Adult stem cells can be aspirated from the patient’s own adipose tissue (fat) or bone marrow. Often, adult stem cells are then combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). This healing matrix is then grafted onto the injured site aided by advanced computer-guided ultrasound imaging. The platelets activate the healing process and orchestrate the stem cells to perform a variety of healing and reparative functions.
