Autologous stem cell therapies are cell-based orthopedic treatments that can offer a less invasive, alternative to surgery for individuals suffering from joint pain. They can also be used in cases where surgery is not recommended but you are suffering from chronic pain and lack of function.
Autologous meaning from your own body are found in bone marrow, blood, and adipose tissue. These cells can derive cartilage, bone, muscle, tendon, and ligaments.
Autologous stem cells are harvested and processed using cutting edge technology and under sterile conditions than used as a treatment the same day in office as a minor office procedure.
These cell-based therapies can potentially repair and regenerate the damaged tissues, resulting in relief of pain and improvement in mobility and function. Stem cell therapy should be considered osteoarthritis, ligament/tendon damage, and cartilage injury.
