Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a noninvasive treatment that can help with a wide variety of diseases, conditions, and injuries. In this treatment, the team at APMI Orthopaedics, Sports Health & Regenerative Medicine injects concentrated stem cells into areas where you have tissue damage or loss.

Stem cells are the building blocks of the human body. They’re both the most basic and yet the most sophisticated cells. Stem cells don’t have a special function, at least not at the beginning. But they can change into whatever type of cells that you need so they can restore all types of damage.

Stem cell therapy is such a powerful treatment because it’s true regenerative medicine. Instead of giving you a quick and temporary fix like medication, stem cell therapy helps you to regenerate damaged tissue.

When is stem cell therapy a good choice?

The team often recommends stem cell therapy for the following conditions:

  • Chronic pain
  • Back pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip pain
  • Spinal cord injuries

Whether you’re dealing with a chronic disease or you’ve suffered a sudden injury, stem cell therapy can be an excellent option for beating pain long-term.

Where do the stem cells come from?

The team uses a special procedure called Lipogems for stem cell therapy. In this procedure, your provider creates a tiny incision in your abdomen to remove excess adipose (fatty) tissue. Your fatty tissue is the best source of stem cells because there’s no worry of incompatibility or rejection.

Your provider concentrates, washes, rinses, and prepares your fat and then injects it into the area where you need it. Stem cells are the most important body cells for tissue repair. Whenever you need significant tissue repair, you need a large influx of stem cells to achieve it. 

Stem cell therapy could be the answer to your pain-causing condition, so schedule your consultation with APMI Orthopaedics, Sports Health & Regenerative Medicine by phone or through the online tool now.
