Helping you stay active
Stem cell therapy is part of a growing field of orthopedics called regenerative medicine. These treatment options for patients describe harvesting and using your own body’s bone marrow cells to heal and treat many orthopedic conditions, rather than undergoing surgery. This treatment has been used in the United States and Europe for more than 10 years.
Stem cell therapy can be an excellent procedure for the right patient.
For patients who are active and want to remain active even after an injury, there is mounting literature where the application of stem cells either as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with certain surgical treatments can improve pain and function and potentially either delay or obviate the need for joint replacement.
Stem Cell Therapy Is Commonly Used to Treat:
Rotator Cuff Injuries
Am I a Candidate for Stem Cell Therapy?
What I see, especially in the market that I practice in Southern California, is that people remain active as long as possible.
I view my job as an orthopedic surgeon to help to keep you active.
For the right patient candidate, Stem Cell Therapy can be extremely beneficial and may even help avoid surgical treatments.
