Stem Cell Injections for Knee, Ankle Arthritis, Tendonitis, Hips, Elbows, Wrist, Hand, & More
Non-responders to conventional therapies should consider a stem cell approach before using long-term steroidal, non-steroidal treatments, and/or surgery.
At the Regenerative Center of Naples, the latest in cutting edge treatments such as amniotic stem cell injections may be used to successfully treat patients with degenerative arthritis, osteoarthritis, tendonitis, and more.
What is stem cell therapy?
Stem cell therapy is the use of healthy stem cells to prevent or treat a disease or a condition.
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are the fundamental cells living in the human body. Their most amazing feature is that they can become many types of cell, from skin cells to muscle, from bone to cartilage. Today, stem cells are of great interest with clinical applications.
What is amniotic stem cell injection?
or clarification, amniotic stem cells that we use are derived from the amniotic sac — not an embryo. While most people may have ethical concerns about embryonic stem cell therapy, most everyone agrees that the use of amniotic stem cell therapy raises no ethical or moral questions. Harvesting amniotic stem cells is a highly regulated procedure to help ensure the health and safety of the donors and recipients.
How does amniotic stem cell therapy work?
Stem cell treatment takes advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself. The amniotic stem cells can jump-start the healing process by creating the cells the damaged tissues need.
What benefits does amniotic stem cell treatment offer?
> Amniotic stem cell therapy is very safe and effective.
> Amniotic stem cells rely on naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents and contain NO STEROIDS.
> Amniotic stem cells help lubricate the cartilage since they contain hyaluronic acid (a natural lubricant of the joint)
> Amniotic stem cells contain growth factors which stimulate tissue growth.
> There is no risk of patient rejection with amniotic stem cells.
> Amniotic fluid is a highly concentrated source of stem cells. This makes it preferable over embryonic stem cells and the patient’s own stem cells (from fat or bone marrow).
Osteoarthritis, ligament, and tendon injuries are very common problems. Stem cell therapy for knee, feet, ankles, hips, elbows, wrist, hand, etc. is a non-surgical alternative for those who suffer from pain.
Surgeries can be painful and require an extended rehabilitation time. Regenerative medicine procedures such as stem cell therapy allow the body to heal itself by providing building blocks known as stem cells that stimulate the body’s natural healing processes to work.
