Stem Cell Therapy for Elbow Pain
Dr. Charles Lee of the Regenesis Stem Cell Center provides state-of-the-art bone marrow cellular therapy for elbow pain using a comprehensive strategy. Our therapy has successfully provided relief for common types of elbow pain caused by injuries such as broken elbow bones, torn tendons or ligaments, or an elbow sprain. Stem cell injections can also repair damage to the joint caused by repetitive motions, such as assembly line or office work, tennis, and golf. We also offer therapy for patients with severe elbow pain from rheumatoid or osteoarthritis. Our patients pursue stem cell therapy with Regenesis Stem Cell Center because they want a safe, non-surgical option that is effective and will help them heal and recover without the risks and downtime of traditional surgery.
Types of Elbow Pain or Injuries Treated with Stem Cell Therapy at Regenesis
The following types of elbow pain and injuries can be treated with stem cell therapy at Regenesis:
- Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
- Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis)
- Partial tear of the distal biceps or triceps tendons
- Ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injury
- Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
An Alternative to Surgery: Stem Cell Therapy for Elbow Pain
If you have experienced a severe elbow injury, or you have wear and tear damage to your elbow joint from your daily activities or from arthritis, surgery may seem to be the only option available to improve your mobility and relieve your pain. Elbow surgery, however, is a serious decision that entails complicated risks and painful rehabilitation after the surgery. You should consider stem cell therapy an effective, non-invasive therapy for elbow injuries and chronic pain. Not only may surgery not be needed, but also you could see full recovery for the elbow condition.
The Advantages of Stem Cell Therapy for Elbow Pain
Stem cell therapy for elbow pain uses your body’s natural healing properties, called regeneration, encouraging an accelerated recovery for elbow pain without invasive orthopedic surgery. Our procedures require no anesthesia or rest period afterward, and the recovery time is much quicker than for elbow surgery. Stem cell therapy is also effective. At Regenesis, we have seen dramatic improvements in our patients who choose stem cell therapy to address tennis or golfer’s elbow, elbow sprains, or arthritis.
What to Expect from Stem Cell Therapy for Elbow Pain at Regenesis
Conveniently, Dr. Lee performs your stem cell therapy in Huntsville, Alabama, at the Regenesis Stem Cell Center. You will not need to visit a hospital. Since elbow joints are complicated systems where muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones all work together, a precise diagnosis of the source of your elbow pain is required. To reach an independent diagnosis, Dr. Lee will carefully review your medical history, conduct a thorough examination, and consult high-tech imagery and ultrasound to identify damaged areas in your elbow. Then we can develop a comprehensive plan to address your unique needs.
When you come to Regenesis for your stem cell therapy procedure, the first step will be to extract and prepare your own stem cells and platelet-rich plasma for the therapy. Your stem cells initially form at conception. Eventually, they generate all the different types of cells in the body. Since the goal of stem cell therapy is repair and regeneration, at Regenesis, we use your entire entourage of bone marrow stem cells, including a specific type of stem cell known as a mesenchymal stem cell (MSC). These adult MSC’s are found in robust reserves in your bone marrow and can divide into various essential cells, including cartilage, ligament, tendon, bone, muscle, and fat. Our advanced and proven stem cell therapy also includes using platelet-rich plasma concentrated from your blood in conjunction with stem cells. Your platelets release a bounty of growth factors that stimulate healing in your damaged elbow joint, signal stem cells to flood the area, and activate regrowth and regeneration. Several clinical studies have demonstrated that platelet-rich plasma injections can improve function and mobility even as a stand-alone therapy to improve joint function and decrease elbow pain.
At Regenesis, on the day of your stem cell therapy procedure, Dr. Lee will apply a local anesthetic after oral or IV sedation and gently extract a sample of your bone marrow containing your stem cells. The stem cells are then concentrated and removed from the sample in our lab while you wait in the comfort of our clinic. The processing takes about two hours. Next, using additional mild sedation and a numbing block to keep you comfortable, Dr. Lee will use real-time fluoroscopy and ultrasound to inject your own healthy live bone marrow stem cells and purified platelet-rich plasma into your elbow at specific locations identified in your diagnoses, such as your joint, bone, cartilage, ligaments, muscle, or soft tissue. The stem cell therapy injections take about 20 to 30 minutes to complete. Your live stem cells and platelet-rich plasma jumpstart your body’s natural healing and regeneration process. You can expect to leave the clinic feeling like when you arrived: there is no extended recovery or rest period following the procedure. Our patients often see the most improvement to their elbow in about three to six months, but you may notice pain relief much sooner, even within days.
