Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that can develop into just about any specialized tissues. The modern stem cells therapy utilizes adult stem cells harvested from the patient’s own body, e.g., by tapping into the hip or leg bone. This type of autologous harvesting involves the least risk as immune response is minimized and can often be non-existent. The somatic stem cells circulate throughout the body and play an integral part in regenerating and thus healing organs and tissues at the cellular level.

HOW DOES STEM CELLS THERAPY WORK?
Adult stem cells are derived from the patient’s bone marrow. Next, a unique solution containing platelet-rich plasma and the harvested stem cells is created and then injected into problematic regions such as degenerated joints, ligaments, herniated discs, muscles, etc. A cascade of self-repair activities at the cellular level commences as the patient’s own newly activated stem cells start to morph into the required cell types including osteoblasts (bone cells) and chondrocytes (cartilage cells).
