What Is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cell Therapy applies non-controversial adult stem cells to damaged tissue of severe hand and/or wrist injuries and in many cases, significantly decreases the patient’s pain and helps them quickly recover. In Stem Cell Therapy, stem cells are organically drawn from a patient’s fat tissue and/or bone marrow and then directly injected into the damaged tissue of the injury. The stem cells, once inside the wrist and/or hand transform themselves into new healthy tissue and simultaneously restore damaged tissue. Usually, the injury is drastically improved and the healing from Stem Cell Therapy can eliminate the need for surgery.
What are stem cells exactly? Stem cells are everywhere in the body and have a very important role. When parts of the body degenerate through everyday use or are injured, stem cells in the area transform themselves into the type of tissue that is needed by the body to repair the injury. They do this automatically. When an injury has gone past the point of recovery, there aren’t enough stem cells to create this healthy tissue and restore the damaged tissue.
This is where we come in! We inject additional stem cells into that area and in this way, there are more stem cells to repair damaged tissue. Through Stem Cell Therapy, pain can not only be significantly reduced but it is also possible to heal the injury completely. This will improve the function and mobility of the area as well.
Because Stem Cell Therapy is non-surgical, there are none of the risks and costs that are involved with surgery. There is also none of the long-term and painful rehabilitation associated with surgery or the potential for long-term complication. This procedure is both organic because the stem cells that are used come for your own body and non-invasive since the stem cells are merely injected into the damaged location.
Stem Cell Therapy is like adding a gigantic concentrated boost of organic-based healing properties into the injured area and is a great method to alleviate chronic wrist and/or hand pain.
What Hand and Wrist Conditions Can Be Treated Using Stem Cell Therapy?
- Hand Arthritis
- Wrist Arthritis
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- trigger finger
- Tendonitis of the wrist or hand
- DeQuervain's Tenosynovitis
Risks of Surgery Vs. Stem Cell Therapy
As a non-surgical option, there is very little risk to Stem Cell Therapy. There is less a 1% chance of a local infection and almost no chance of receiving an allergic reaction to the treatment.
This can be compared to the potentially tremendous risks of surgery on the hand or wrist because of the invasiveness of surgery. Such risks include the possibility of infection, nerve damage, ligament damage, the causing of traumatic arthritis, and unattractive scarring.
Stem Cell Therapy is non-surgical and therefore, has none of the downsides of surgery.
Recovery Time of Surgery Vs. Stem Cell Therapy
With Stem Cell Therapy, most patients are back to normal restful activity right after the procedure. The stem cells act in normal alignment with the body’s method of healing. Initial improvement can be seen within several weeks and gradually increasing as the healing progresses.
The invasiveness of surgery means a long process of painful rehabilitation. Depending on the type of surgery, it may take one anywhere from three to six months to recover from the surgical procedure.
Why Is Stem Cell Therapy Important?
Because of it’s invasiveness, surgery is not only a high risk procedure but also tremendously expensive. Surgery should always be a last resort with all other conservative options exhausted first. Stem Cell Therapy is the last option before surgery. It is the most powerful way to non-surgically treat an injury and significantly reduce pain while correcting the damaged muscles, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage of the injury.
If successful, Stem Cell Therapy can save you a long and painful rehabilitation period as well as the potential long-term complications that may arise from surgery. This non-surgical and non-invasive treatment has a proven track record to help patients heal wrist and/or hand injuries and avoid surgery altogether.
What is Treatment Like?
Dr. Benjamin Bieber offers a non-surgical treatment with a proven track record to repair painful wrist and hand conditions. In most cases, pain and mobility is significantly improved.
First, call Dana at (212) 268-8181 and set up a consultation with Dr. Bieber. On the day of your consultation, Dr. Bieber will examine your wrist and/or hand as well as assess all previous tests done by other physicians. Once a diagnosis is confirmed and Dr. Bieber feels that Stem Cell Therapy can help, you’ll schedule an appointment for a Stem Cell Therapy session.
Next, on the date of your Stem Cell Therapy, you’ll arrive at our state of the art medical facility, where a sample of blood and fat tissue is taken. Fat tissue is derived from a small needle and the stem cells are separated out from this fat tissue.
The stem cells are processed in a machine that condenses all of the stem cells into one area. Dr. Bieber then applies a local anesthetic to the damaged area of the wrist and injects the stem cells into that wrist and/or hand. The procedure takes about 2-4 hours to complete and is done in-office. You are then free to leave and return to normal restful activity. There are no hospital visits or overnight stays.
Most patients that have Stem Cell Therapy are recommended to receive a platelet rich plasma booster one month after the procedure. PRP Therapy is another powerfully effective and non-surgical treatment used in the repair of tissue damage.
