Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cell Therapy consists of specialized cells that are used to regenerate damaged or injured tissues and can help form tendon, muscle, ligament, joint, and bone cells in the affected areas of the body.
Studies have shown that bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells can trigger tendon, cartilage, ligament, bone healing and regeneration.
Administration of Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cell Therapy
Administration of the bone marrow stem cells injections does not require an overnight hospital stay and can be applied on an outpatient basis. The patients can go back to their normal daily routines after the procedure.
Physicians acquire these stem cells from the hip region and then concentrate them. Now the stem cells can easily be injected into the joint or body region.
Physicians use a real-time x-ray to make sure the cells are placed in the correct area.
Conditions for Bone Marrow Stem Cells Treatment
- Joint injury
- Rotator cuff tears
- Achilles Tendon Injury
- Elbow Tendinosis
Instead of going for traditional ways for pain relief, every year more than 100,000 U.S. citizens opt for bone marrow stem cell therapies.
Bone marrow stem cells have the ability to differentiate into cartilage, bone, ligament, tendon, and endothelium once injected into the damaged area. By releasing various bioactive and growth factors, they help damaged tissues to regenerate.
Studies show that the bone marrow stem cells therapy has shown results in the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurodegenerative disorder, knee arthritis and treatment of focal lesions.
