WHY STEM CELL TREATMENTS?
Scientists and doctors have made tremendous advances in moving regenerative medicine into the mainstream as a treatment for many diseases and disorders. Regenerative medicine takes advantage of our natural ability to heal ourselves by using the healthy adult stem cells found throughout the body. Laboratory and clinical research has shown that it is possible to use adult stem cells to restore lost, damaged or aging cells to effectively regenerate tissue and provide some patients with an alternative to surgery. Regenerative therapies are showing promise in orthopedic medicine, wound care, nerve restoration, and a variety of cardiovascular, neuromuscular, and autoimmune conditions.
There are many potential applications where stem cell treatments can be very effective. The following applications are the most common:
Degenerative Disc Disease
Articular Cartilage Injuries
Partial Ligament Tears (ACL & PCL)
Partial Meniscal Tears
Augmented ACL or PCL Reconstruction
