What Is Stem Cell Therapy?
At Lone Star Orthopaedic and Spine Specialists, we strive to find conservative, yet effective treatment options for our patients suffering from joint pain. We utilize the latest advancements and pair this innovation with decades of experience, so our patients can receive the highest quality care possible. That is why we are proud to offer stem cell injection treatments to patients who visit our offices in Burleson, Fort Worth, and Mansfield.
Stem cells are cells that do not have a predetermined function and can take on the attributes of the cells surrounding them. For example, supplying stem cells to an area of cartilage cells can help new cartilage growth. This makes stem cell therapy a potentially viable option for many patients suffering from the following conditions:
- Wrist, elbow, knee, and ankle pain
- Back and neck pain
- Torn rotator cuff
- Shoulder pain
- Degenerative disc disease
What To Expect From A Stem Cell Injection Treatment
Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for stem cell therapy, we start the process by harvesting your stem cells. We typically extract stem cells from the bone marrow in your pelvis, locally anaesthetizing the area for painless bone marrow aspiration.
Next, these healthy stem cells are collected and allowed to multiply. Once ready, we use fluoroscopic or ultrasound technology to guide the injection into the affected area, like the knee, elbow, or ankle. This in-office injection is usually completed in just a few hours.
While some patients will notice a difference in as little as a few weeks, it can take up to six weeks for most patients to see results. This is because the stem cells can take several weeks to heal and regrow the damaged tissue. In addition to our stem cell injection treatments, Lone Star Orthopaedic and Spine Specialists offers PRP-injections to help those suffering from joint pain. If you live in Burleson, Fort Worth, Mansfield, or any of the surrounding areas, and are curious about whether stem cell injections would be a good choice for you, reach out to our friendly and professional staff.
