What can be treated with stem cells?
Stem cells are naturally occurring cells in the body that have the ability to duplicate that of other cells across many regions of the body. By doing so, they can gradually heal and repair traumatized joints, muscles, and other tissue on a cellular level. Some instances where stem cell injections can benefit the body are:
- Bone fractures
- Cartilage defects
- Chronic wounds
- Inadequate skin texture
We also utilize stem cells to address musculoskeletal injury. We can also store unused stem cells for future needs such as those mentioned above.
What can I expect during my treatment?
Patients will be administered a general anesthesia at the start of this treatment. From there, a fine needle is carefully administered to extract a small portion of bone marrow within a targeted bone (the location is based on your distinctive treatment needs). Once the marrow is withdrawn, one of our specialists will insert it into a sterilized centrifuge where stem cells will separate from other cells within the sample. The isolated stem cell solution is then carefully administered into the designated treatment area.
How much downtime is there?
Following your bone marrow stem cell aspiration, you may be asked to set aside a minimal amount of time away from strenuous physical activity. Dr. Flores and our team will provide you with proper aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible recovery.
Who is an ideal candidate for bone marrow stem cell aspiration?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Flores and his team will meet with you to discuss your medical history as well as your goals in mind for this treatment. In terms of storing stem cells for future applications, younger patients tend to have have better quality and quantity. Women who are pregnant as well as patients who are experiencing an infection or are diagnosed with cancer may be referred to an alternative option.
