Who Should Consider Stem Cell Therapy for Joints?
If you suffer from pain in your joints from a new or previous injury, or if you have inflammation or even deterioration in your joints from osteoarthritis or other arthritis, you should consider stem cell therapy. Our procedures allow you to continue your active lifestyle without invasive surgery, an extended rest period, or painful lengthy recovery. Because stem cell therapy for joints is nonsurgical, it is less invasive, and procedures are performed without general anesthesia. For a safe solution to effectively reduce your pain and improve your mobility without orthopedic surgery, you should inquire about stem cell therapy with Dr. Lee at Regenesis.
Advantages of Stem Cell Therapy for Joints
The power of stem cell therapy is that it utilizes your body’s own regrowth and repair processes, known as regeneration. While traditional treatments for joint pain, inflammation, or damage might include noninflammatory medications, physical therapy, and often surgery, stem cell therapy goes immediately to the source of your pain and discomfort to initiate healing. The effectiveness of stem cell therapy has even been demonstrated in many scientific studies. Research published in the International Journal of Cell Biology showed that pain and mobility scores were more improved after two years for patients who had stem cell therapy than for patients who had total joint replacements. In our own clinic, we have seen repeated, dramatic success in decreasing the joint pain and increasing the motion of the joint without surgery.
What You Can Expect from Stem Cell Therapy for Joints
Dr. Lee will perform your stem cell therapy in the comfort of the Regenesis Stem Cell Center in Huntsville, Alabama, without a visit to the hospital. Joints are complicated systems of tendons, bone, ligaments, muscles, and cartilage, so before we can begin your therapy, we must determine an exact diagnosis for your joint. Dr. Lee will first review your medical records, perform a medical examination, and study high-tech imaging and ultrasound of your joint. Only then can we provide a comprehensive procedure plan tailored to you.
If you choose stem cell therapy at Regenesis, when you arrive at our clinic on the day of your procedure we will first need to prepare your own stem cells and platelet-rich plasma for the injections. Your stem cells are initially formed at conception, and they are the source of every different kind of cell in your body. Since the goal of stem cell therapy is repair and regeneration, at Regenesis, we use and an entourage of cells containing mesenchymal stem cells, which are a specific type of stem cell that is able to divide into cells that build bone, ligament, tendon, cartilage, muscle, and fat. A rich reserve of stem cells including mesenchymal stem cells can be found in your own bone marrow. In addition to stem cells, our protocol includes using platelet-rich plasma, which we concentrate from your blood. The platelets are a powerful part of stem cell therapy since they will flood an injured, damaged, or inflamed area with growth factors that stimulate stem cells and amplify the healing process.
To begin your stem cell therapy, using sedation and a local anesthetic, Dr. Lee will extract a sample of your bone marrow, which contains your own live stem cells. In our lab, we concentrate the stem cells in the bone marrow and remove them from your sample for your procedure. The lab processing takes about two hours, and you will wait comfortably in our clinic until it is complete. Next, Dr. Lee will give you additional mild oral or IV sedation and often a numbing joint block. Using real-time fluoroscopy and ultrasound, he will carefully and precisely inject your own live stem cells and platelet-rich plasma into specific locations in your joints. After only 20-40 minutes, the procedure will be complete. Your live stem cells and platelet-rich plasma will immediately initiate your body’s repair, regrowth, and regenerative process to ease inflammation and heal damaged tissue and bone. You will return home after the procedure with about the same mobility as when you arrived. The injured joint will heal itself over the next three to six months, but pain relief may begin within days or weeks.
