Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy, also known as regenerative medicine, is cutting-edge technology that is revolutionizing orthopedics.
Performed by our team of fellowship-trained doctors, stem cell therapy is an innovative way to use the body's capability to heal itself to treat sports injuries and chronic painful orthopedic problems of the shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist, hip, knee, or foot and ankle.
Many patients visit us after exhausting all other options and want an alternative to surgery. Most noteworthy, in tissues like bone and muscle, stem cell therapy can actually generate replacements for cells that are lost through injury, disease, or normal wear and tear.
Stem cell treatments ease discomfort and contain growth factors that may actually replace damaged cells, while simultaneously providing restorative healing to the tissue.
What Conditions Can Stem Cell Therapy Treat?
- Sports injuries
- Stress fractures
- Damaged or deteriorating cartilage
- Joint pain
- Acute ligament and muscle injuries
What Does Stem Cell Treatments Involve?
Researchers prepare the stem cells in a lab beforehand and are minimally manipulated. While stem cell therapy requires no invasive surgery, these stem cells, called mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), are prepared beforehand and injected directly into the affected area.
Most importantly, our practice uses the latest technology that allows us to inject stem cells into the affected area(s) in the office, eliminating the need for invasive surgery, hospital stays, or even multiple appointments. If you are a candidate for stem cell therapy and would like the injection the same day, our office has the capability because we store the stem cells on site.

What Are the Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy?
- Pain relief
- Promotes healing without surgery
- Aids in the regeneration of healthy tissues
- Minimal down time
Are You a Candidate for Stem Cell Therapy?
To determine if you are a good candidate for stem cell therapy, one of our fellowship-trained physicians will review your history with you, perform a physical examination, and determine whether X-rays and/or an MRI are needed.
If you are a good candidate for stem cell therapy, a member of our team will explain how the procedure works, what will happen before and after the procedure, and answer any questions you might have.
Depending on the severity of the injury or condition, stem cell therapy can also be used in conjunction with orthopedic surgery to speed up recovery.
