Stem Cell Therapy for Orthopedics


If you have an orthopedic condition from an injury or disease, you know that healing and recovery can take a long time. Even after taking medicine, having surgery, and resorting to other methods of treatment, you know that your body might never be the same. If you feel that you have reached a dead end in managing your orthopedic condition, now is a great time to start learning about stem cell therapy.

With an incredible rate of success, stem cell therapy is quickly gaining popularity as a preferred method of therapy for orthopedic ailments among physicians worldwide.

You may have heard about stem cell therapy for orthopedics, but what exactly is stem cell therapy, and can it help you?

Stem cell therapy involves taking out stem cells from the patient’s body, mixing it with platelet-rich blood, and injecting it into the affected site. Each procedure varies in length but total procedure time takes around one and a half hours, and is performed on an outpatient basis – no lengthy recovery time or overnight hospital stay required. Once injected, the new cells go to work immediately. They “recruit” neighboring cells to help with the healing process, and the affected tissue begins regenerating and healing. These treatments are used to reduce pain and inflammation, in addition to promoting tissue regeneration from disease or injury in the spinal discs, in the knees, hips, elbows, shoulders, and other joints.
