Stem Cell Injections

Stem cells are cells within our own bodies that have the potential to transform into other cell types.  Within the practice of orthopedic medicine, physicians have the ability to extract mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).  These are cells that can differentiate into cells that make up several of the most common human tissues that are common orthopedic problems including: bone, tendons and cartilage. These MSCs cells, in the hands of an experienced practitioner can be injected into damaged tissues or joints in order to stimulate increased functionality and decreased pain. Stem cells can be injected into a joint after arthroscopic surgery to aid in the healing process.

Several of the more common conditions treated would include:

  • Tennis Elbow
  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Rotator cuff injuries/shoulder pain
  • Arthritis of the joints
  • Knee Pain
  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle strains
  • Tendinitis or Tendinosis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
