Stem Cell Therapies

The human body has multiple storage sites for stem cells to repair degenerated and injured structures. We have found that obtaining stem cells from the hip bone (iliac bone) is easily performed within minutes and, in most cases, is a fairly painless procedure for the patient. The stem cells are obtained from your own bone marrow; just minutes later, they are used for treatment.  This procedure is done in our office and starts with the patient lying face down on the examination table. After the procedure, the syringe of stem cells is taken to the lab and placed in a specialized machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the bone marrow solution and stem cells are separated from the non-useful cells. The concentrated stem cells are then transferred to a new syringe. Now, the stem cells are ready for the treatment.

Stem cell therapy has been effective in treating, osteoarthritis of the joints including knee, hip, shoulder, and ankle joints, chronic partial rotator cuff tears, persistent partial tendon tears, such as tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, quadriceps and patellar tendon tears, muscular tears, meniscal (cartilage) tears in the knee, discogenic back pain, spinal facet pain, chronic radiculopathy (pinched nerve) and sacroiliac joint pain
