Stem Cell therapy is an alternative and modern approach to conventional medicine in the areas of anti-aging, orthopaedic and degenerative disease, sports injuries, pain in the knees, shoulders, elbow and back or spinal injuries. Stem Cell therapy can be used to treat a multitude of chronic musculoskeletal conditions such as arthritic joints, most ligament and tendon injuries including rotator cuff tears, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow and other ligamentous and sports injuries. Depending on the age and condition of the patient, the stem cells can be harvested from the patients own subcutaneous fatty tissue or bone marrow. It is a simple non-operative alternative that promotes tissue repair by a combination of growth factors and bioactive cells, resulting in safe, effective and nonsurgical treatment; a cutting edge technique that can enable patients to avoid the risk of surgery. Stem Cell therapy has the ability to restore, heal and potentially regenerate tissues. It is performed safely in the office under local anesthesia. Research and clinical data show that stem cell therapy is extremely safe with minimal risk of adverse reactions or complication. Because stem cells are obtained from your own blood and tissues there is no concern for rejection or disease transmission, making Stem Cell therapy the new frontier in helping the body to heal itself.
