Sandy, one of our experienced medical staff, discusses advanced treatment options we offer:
Regenerative Medicine: Stem Cell Therapy & Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) are treatment options that have the potential to repair cells and help relieve pain. These procedures are alternative solutions to surgery for patients who are suffering from conditions like, osteoarthritis, meniscus tears, arthritis, labral tears, tendonitis, torn rotator cuff, chronic neck and back pain, wrist, elbow and ankle pain.
As we age or are involved in an injury, our bodies cannot get enough stem cells to the needed area. Stem cells are responsible for healing our bodies and helping assist in the healing of damaged tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone and tissues. At The Spine and Pain Institute of New England, we utilize advanced imaging guidance to ensure the stem cells and/or PRP are accurately delivered to the specific area to get optimal results. Dr. Sakai will also create a customized personal rehabilitation program for recovery.
The success of the procedure will depend on the severity of your condition and your body’s response to stem cell therapy. Also the need for surgery can be reduced greatly by having this treatment. If you are interested in Stem Cell or PRP therapy please call us to learn more and find out if you could be a good candidate.
