Stem Cell Therapy: Is It Safe?

Stem cell therapy is a revolutionary treatment that can help ease chronic pain resulting from a number of injuries, diseases and aging. You may be wondering if this is all just too good to be true and whether or not it is safe. Stem cell therapy is typically a low risk procedure and we make sure that our patients are well prepared before the procedure takes place.

Before we perform the stem cell therapy procedure, we take a thorough look at your medical history. There is also a routine physical and an imaging evaluation. Our physicians will then determine if you are a good candidate for stem cell therapy.

The procedure itself is non-invasive and is done quickly in an outpatient fashion. We use a very simple in and out method when injecting the stem cells we extracted from your bone marrow or fat. Our injections are all done under fluoroscopy to visualize the injury site. This gives us the ability to provide an accurate treatment.

Once the treatment is done, the patient is free to go home. All patients are unique and have different experiences. Some may experience minor soreness for a couple of days following the procedure. Commonly, a patient can get back to their regular activity after 2 or 3 days.

There is a minimal chance of side effects when it comes to stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine. Since the stem cells are coming directly from your body, there is no chance of rejection and very low chance of an allergic reaction.

Stem cell therapy restores your body’s natural balance and maximizes your cells’ healing potential. If stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine sound like the right option for you, comment below or contact us directly.
