WHAT IS stem cell THERAPY
imagine if you could heal joint, spine and tissue injuries with a simple outpatient procedure that only takes a couple hours out of your day with minimal recovery time. You can through stem cell therapy.
stem cell therapy is a non-surgical treatment option that can be used to treat many different painful conditions including injuries to:
STEM CELL THERAPY
WHAT IS STEM CELL therapy
Stem Cell Therapy is a new treatment which utilizes your own body's own cells to heal injuries and repair damaged tissue.
This method of treatment is currently being used in a variety of patient illnesses including Orthopaedics, Neurosurgery and Oncology for some cancer sufferers.
We use cells drawn from your vein, bone marrow or fatty tissue and then process them into cellular components that can repair and regenerate injured tissue. Once the cells are processed we inject them into the area of injury.
Healing usually takes several weeks to several months. At times the procedure may need to be repeated depending on the degree of injury and your response to treatment. Dr. Wolkowitz can discuss if this type of treatment may be right for you.
The Stem Cell Process
PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)
PRP is processed from your blood. Although blood is primarily a liquid (plasma), it also contains other components, including platelets. Within platelets are growth factors that ma initiate tissue repair. Growth factors derived from platelets have also been shown to be responsible for bone regeneration, development of new blood vessels and stimulation of the wound healing process. The concentrated platelets in PRP may help optimize the conditions for healing.
Concentrated Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMA)
BMA is processed from bone marrow, which is the spongy tissue found in the center of bones. It is unique because it contains a rich supply of a broad range of stem cells. The cells found in concentrated BMA have been shown to support repair or growth of bone, cartilage, muscle, marrow. tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue.
CONCENTRATED adipose tissue
Concentrated adipose tissue is created from fat in your own body. Adipose tissue contains a significant concentration of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and is used as an MSC-rich scaffold that may aid in tissue regeneration.
The use of amniotic membrane and umbilical cord tissue grafting which is done by a simple ultrasound guided injection has been shown to restore range of motion, heal and regenerate damaged tendons and ligaments.
