In the past couple of years, stem cell technology has made rapid advances allowing us to now isolate and use a patients’ own stem cells to regenerate damaged joints. Stem cells can regenerate all types of tissues, including car- tilage, bone, ligaments and tendons. Regenerative stem cell injections are a fast effective treatment for rebuilding lost cartilage. Stem cell therapy has been labeled the medicine of the future by many doctors and it is an alternative to traditional surgical approaches. Regenerative Orthopedics may generate a better result, with faster healing time and at less risk in many cases.
Stem cells are gently harvested from the patient and then injected in to the damaged joint area. Orthopedic stem cell therapy is done in a single session and involves a minor outpatient surgery using local anesthesia. The patients’ response to the stem cell therapy depends on their bodies healing response and can range from one to six weeks from a single treatment. The stem cells remain alive and will continue to regenerate and rebuild the damaged joint or ligament for up to six months detecting the tissues that are damaged and repairing those tissues selectively.
The regenerated tissue from the stem cell therapy after the joint or connective tissue structure is regenerated pro- duces long-term results that are minimally invasive and safe. Orthopedic stem cell therapy uses stem cells from the patient’s own body, eliminating any risk of tissue rejection. Stem cell therapy has the ability to heal almost any joint in your body, to determine if you would be a good candidate for stem cells call Dr Stolarski today for an evaluation.
