Stem cell therapy is used to treat a variety of orthopedic conditions including arthritis, tendonitis and muscle tears that are not healing or improving with standard treatments. By using your own reparative cells (autologous cells) there is no risk of rejection or disease. Stem cells exist all over the body but physicians can safely harvest stem cells from several sources using minimally invasive procedures – either via bone marrow aspiration (BMA) or adipose lipoaspiration or fat harvesting via lipogems.
These well tolerated outpatient procedures can be completed within 90 minutes. Once the stem cells are harvested and prepared, they can be injected into the diseased tissues using ultrasound-guidance. The goal is to stimulate healing to restore tissue to pre-injury function and reduce or eliminate pain. Our goal at Remedy Sports and Regenerative Medicine is to help our patients stay active for life enjoying the sports or other active lifestyle pursuits they love!
