Stem Cell Therapy for Hip Injuries and Arthritis
“Advanced stem cell therapy and blood platelet treatments for common degenerative hip conditions, injuries, and arthritis.”
“The human body is made of billions of specialized cells that form specific organs like the brain, skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and bone. Each day these cells go through a degenerative and regenerative process. As older cells die, new cells are born from stem cells with the unique capability of being able to create multiple types of other cells. However, when tissues are injured, the degenerative process exceeds this regenerative process, resulting in structures that become weaker, painful and less functional. While there are several types of stem cells, those that are best at promoting musculoskeletal healing (tendon, ligament, cartilage and bone) are found in body fat.”
“Patient Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy for Hip Conditions”
“These non-surgical stem cell injection procedures happen within a single day and may offer a viable alternative for those who are facing surgery or hip replacement. Patients quickly return to normal activity following their procedure and are able to avoid the painful and lengthy rehabilitation periods that are required following hip surgery to help restore strength, mobility and range-of-motion. You are far less vulnerable to the serious risks associated with traumatic hip surgeries, such as infection and blood clots.”
“Stem Cell injection procedure utilizes stem cells from your own body’s reserves to help heal the injured area”
“Fluoroscopy allows doctors to precisely place the stem cells into injured areasMost tissues in the body have their own stem cells, which have the ability to produce mature cells of that specific nature. Their job is to replenish cells of that tissue when old cells die.”
“Modern techniques in today’s medicine allows us to withdraw stem cells, concentrate them through a lab process and then re-inject them precisely into the injured tissues in other areas of the body using advanced imaging guidance. Through Fluoroscopy and MSK Ultrasound, medical personal are able to ensure the cells are being introduced into the exact area of need.”
Stem cell procedures using your own stem cells is still in it’s infancy, however strides are being made daily. Some medical professionals feel this procedure may take the need for delicate surgeries and the risks of anesthesia. I have such a strong feeling that the “body healing itself” is the right way to go, I am going to do this procedure in place of a major hip replacement.
The healing takes longer (though I have had a hip replaced) and it took a full three months to heal – and it was very painful. I had quality professionals and the results are good, but I also have new hardware in my body – permanently!
There is no guarantee it will work, and no insurance covers it yet, but I have a “God level” feeling it may heal more than just the hip. Studies are being performed working with those who have had spinal cord injuries (myself included). Thus far using your own stem cells has found it’s way into the areas of cancer, MS, and even the brain.
Long term studies only go out 4 years, and there are not a lot of studies with the elderly, as the cost is prohibitive. Check out other spots on the internet and see what you can discover. Wouldn’t it be A GREAT WAY TO MANAGE STRESS – using your own stem cells and no facing surgeries and perhaps healing from spinal cord disabilities!
Have a beautiful day!
How Are The Stem Cells Obtained?
- The human body keeps a supply of stem cells available to help repair injured and degenerated tissues at all times, making it fairly simple to retrieve them for therapeutic purposes.
- Procedure is done in the office, under ultrasound or x-ray precision and guidance.
- After stem cells are withdrawn they are taken to a laboratory and centrifuged to concentrate and purify the stem cells while other cells that are not needed are removed, leaving a concentrated sample of stem cells used to help heal your injury.
- The entire process is done by hand to enable customized designing of the stem cell specimen for your particular injury.
- A preparation of your concentrated platelets are also gathered at this time for injection into the injury site to release growth factors that “turn on” the stem cells that will later be injected.
