Regenerative Joint Injection ( Stem Cell Therapy)

What is Stem Cell therapy?

Adult stem cells can be extracted from bone marrow or fat through simple methods. It’s then concentrated and injected into the knee with image guidance, usually to successful results.
Although natural deterioration of the joint continues, one study showed that at five years, those joints that are injected with stem cells are in better shape than they were before the injections.

Stem cell therapy for joints works by:

  • developing into essential cartilage cells
  • thwarting the inflammation that can worsen arthritis
  • releasing proteins called cytokines that slow degeneration of cartilage and reduce pain

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a relatively new treatment option for various injuries and conditions that have traditionally required surgery or other extensive treatments. Using the patient’s own blood, sterilely prepared platelets are concentrated and then reinjected into the affected area. The platelets in turn release substances known as growth factors that lead to improved natural tissue healing.
