Regenerative medicine is a growing field within that medical health community. It is a form of tissue engineering that involves the process of human cell regeneration. Stem cell therapy is a state-of-the-art procedure that we provide for our patients suffering from chronic pain. This treatment provides the body with the resources it needs to heal better and faster. The best part about stem cell therapy is that it utilizes biologic material harvested directly from the patient’s body – meaning minimal risk, minimal recovery time, and minimal worry.
Stem Cell Therapy is a procedure that utilizes the body’s stem cells to aid in healing and regenerating damaged tissue.
Everyone is born with stem cells – they are the essential building blocks of life. Their primary function is to rebuild and regrow cellular tissue through cell division and differentiation. In other words, stem cells have the capability to develop into any type of cell within the human body, as well as initiate a natural healing response.
Alpha 2 Macroglobulin, also known as A2M, is a plasma protein that is at the forefront of regenerative medicine. By injecting a concentrated amount of the A2M protein into an affected joint, this form of therapy can protect against the progression of cartilage degradation. It can help prevent and reverse the breakdown of cartilage in osteoarthritis and other joint conditions characterized by cartilage loss, and greatly improve a patient’s mobility and comfort. A2M injections are minimally invasive and don’t require the use of risky general anesthesia or invasive surgery.
As we mentioned, stem cells are harvested from the patient’s body – either from adipose (fat) tissue or bone marrow from the iliac crest (pelvis). Both of these extraction procedures are minimally-invasive and require little recovery time.
Bone marrow-derived stem cells are harvested from the patient's illiac crest (pelvis). This is also a minimally invasive procedure that uses a local anesthetic. Although bone marrow-derived stem cells contain similar properties and characteristics as adipose-derived stem cells, they are both unique biologics and employed in treatment for different reasons.
Through a patented and proprietary process, A2M is concentrated from your blood to biologically clean out your joint space and provide a healthier environment for repair.
Amniotic Fluid Injections
When surgery is not an option, an Amniotic Fluid (AM) injection offers a surgery-free, drug-free alternative.
Bone Marrow Aspirate
Harness the power of your stem cells.
For painful disorders such as arthritis, joint pain or non-healing injuries.
