Stem Cell Therapy
Are you experiencing joint pain caused by osteoarthritis? Have you been injured in a sports-related incident that resulted in damaged cartilage in the knee, shoulder or hip area? Here at S.M.A.R.T. Spine Institute and Surgery Center, our physicians and medical practitioners offer a medical breakthrough treatment known as Stem Cell Therapy to relieve pain associated with knee osteoarthritis and knee and shoulder injuries such as an ACL tear, chronic tendonitis and meniscus tears.
We are one of the few clinics to offer stem cell injections in the Arcadia, CA/San Gabriel Valley area to help patients recover from knee injuries or other joint problems that might otherwise require major surgery. It's one of our many natural methods for relieving pain and restore mobility, and you can discover its benefits for yourself at our facility.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
The human body has marvelous powers to heal itself -- and a remarkable innovation known as stem cell therapy can put this power to work for you!
Stem cells are undifferentiated human cells -- that is, cells that haven't yet taken on specific characteristics such as bone cells, nerve cells, muscle cells et cetera. They're a "blank slate" that can be utilized to aid any part of the body --and that's what makes them such a powerful force for healing the damaged cartilage in joints.
Stem Cell Therapy: An Alternative to Joint Replacement Surgery
Joint surgery has been the standard solution for those suffering from osteoarthritis for many years. However, the procedure doesn’t go without its share of risks. Instead of going through the serious complications that come with surgery, many patients are now turning to stem cell therapy before moving forward with knee replacement surgery.
This remarkable technique can actually serve as a non-invasive alternative to major surgeries like total hip and knee replacement surgery.
Stem Cell Injections for Knee Osteoarthritis
Knee joints and other weight-bearing joints are subject to a great deal of wear and tear over time, and eventually the cartilage nestled between the bones sustains damage, causing the pain and stiffness of osteoarthritis. Inflammatory conditions and traumatic injuries can also damage joint cartilage. But stem cells can become cartilage cells --and at our stem cell therapy clinic in Arcadia CA, that's exactly what they do.
How It Works
How do we use cell therapy to help damaged cartilage heal? There are two ways to perform this procedure.
1. Derive the stem cells from the patients bone marrow. We, then, inject those stem cells directly into the knee joint so they can help the cartilage repair itself.
2 Use amniotic fluid or placenta material from someone else that has been monitored throughout the pregnancy. Most people choose this option because this type of embryonic graft is genetically programmed to produce a greater number of collagen cells than from older people whose healing ability production is slower.
Our Approach: Stem Cell Treatment for Arcadia, CA
While stem cell therapy is recognized as a safe, effective treatment for joint injuries and other disorders, it is by no means available everywhere, at least not yet. If you're tired of running searches for "stem cell doctors Arcadia CA," you'll be relieved to know that you've found your solution right here at S.M.A.R.T. Spine Institute and Surgery Center.
Our integrated medical team will run x-rays and other diagnostics to determine whether stem cell therapy makes sense for you as a therapeutic option, either by itself or alongside other therapies such as physical rehabilitation or neuropathic pain management. We can inject a single joint or multiple joints as needed. Since a treated knee may have some discomfort following the procedure, you may want to have someone else drive you to and from our stem cell therapy clinic in Arcadia CA.
