Stem Cell Therapy for Hip Pain
At Regenesis Stem Cell Center, Dr. Charles Lee uses state-of-the-art bone marrow stem cell therapy to comprehensively address the sources of hip pain without the risk of traditional invasive surgery. Stem cell therapy uses the body’s own process for cellular healing and repair, called regeneration, to relieve pain resulting from injuries to the hip joint, ligaments, or tendons or from arthritis wear and tear or necrosis in the hip bones. Our patients choose stem cell therapy because they want to increase mobility and decrease pain in their hip without risky and complicated surgery.
Causes of Hip Pain That Can Be Addressed with Bone Marrow Stem Cell Therapy
Many causes of hip pain can be addressed with stem cell therapy at Regenesis Stem Cell Center, including:
- Osteoarthritis of the Hip Joint
- Other Hip Arthritis
- Early Avascular Necrosis
- Early Osteonecrosis of the Femoral Head
- Tendon Injury
- Ligament Injury
- Labral Tear
- Piriformis Syndrome
- Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction
- Symphysis Pubis Arthritis and Pain
- Bone-on-bone Degenerative Joint Disease
Who Should Consider Stem Cell Therapy for Hip Pain?
If you have an injury to your hip joint or have chronic hip pain, you may be a candidate for stem cell therapy. Hip muscles, tendons, or ligament strains and tears can cause severe pain and take a long time to heal. Many types of arthritis can cause serious hip pain and limit your range of motion and mobility. Traditional treatments such as rest, anti-inflammatory medicines, physical therapy, lubrication or steroid injections, and ultimately surgery may not work well, or – in the case of surgery – may be a cause for concern because of your active, demanding lifestyle or your age and the complications of anesthesia. Additionally, the condition of your hip may be painful but not serious enough to require immediate surgery, thus negatively impacting the quality of life. This is a perfect time for stem cell therapy to decrease pain and improve mobility for years. Surgeons often postpone a hip replacement procedure until the pain is unbearable because the implant may only last for 10 to 15 years.
Stem cell therapy could offer more immediate pain relief as well as possibly healing damage in the hip ligaments, tissues, and joints. If you want to significantly reduce hip pain and relatively safely restore or improve mobility, you should consider stem cell therapy with Dr. Lee at Regenesis.
The Advantages of Treating Hip Pain with Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy is an effective and non-invasive remedy for many causes of hip pain. The hips are ball-and-socket joints and are the largest joints in your body. When they are healthy, it takes great force to injure them; however, playing sports, running, or falling sometimes results in hip strains, bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, fractures, and dislocations. As we age, the hip absorbs years of wear and tear and may develop painful arthritis inflammation or necrosis in the bone. Physical therapy may not provide full pain relief, and surgery is a complicated option that carries higher risk and a long recovery period. The advantage at Regenesis is that we offer stem cell therapy to harness your own healing processes for relief from hip pain.
What to Expect from Stem Cell Therapy for Hip Pain at Regenesis
Dr. Lee will conveniently perform your stem cell therapy at the Regenesis Stem Cell Center in Huntsville, Alabama, so a hospital visit or stay is not necessary. Because the hip joint is so large and complicated, we must determine a precise diagnosis before proceeding with your stem cell therapy. To begin, Dr. Lee will review your medical history, conduct a thorough medical examination, and order imagery, and perform an ultrasound to identify the injured or damaged areas that are the cause of your hip pain. After a thorough inspection, we will recommend a procedure plan tailored to your needs.
If stem cell therapy is part of your procedure plan, we will first prepare your own stem cells and platelet-rich plasma for injection. Your first stem cells are formed at conception and give rise to all the cells in the body. For the repair and regeneration necessary in stem cell therapy, we use an entire entourage of bone marrow cells including a specific type of stem cell called a mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) that can divide into a variety of cells including the bone, connective tissue, muscle, and fat that make up your hip. Your own bone marrow contains robust reservoirs for these cells. At Regenesis, our unique stem cell therapy includes using platelet-rich plasma concentrated from your blood. These platelets release growth factors that initiate healing and attract stem cells to the area where they are injected.
When you arrive at Regenesis for stem cell therapy, with oral or IV sedation, Dr. Lee will apply a local anesthetic and gently remove a sample of your own bone marrow containing your stem cells. We then process, concentrate and remove your stem cells from the collected sample in our lab while you wait in the comfort of our clinic. The stem cells will be ready in about two. While you are under mild sedation and numbing anesthesia, Dr. Lee will use real-time fluoroscopy and ultrasound – the most advanced technology available – to precisely inject specific locations in your hip with your own live stem cells and platelet-rich plasma. The stem cell therapy injections take about 20 to 30 minutes to complete. With the procedure, the body’s regenerative healing process is supercharged by the stem cells and platelet-rich plasma. Although you can expect to leave the clinic with the same mobility as when you arrived, pain relief may begin quickly, and you’ll feel the injured or damaged tissue repair itself over the next three to six months.
