Repair Severe Foot Conditions Without Surgery

Sometimes, a foot condition doesn’t seem to heal or you are recommended to go for invasive surgery.  Fortunately, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or PRP Therapy for the foot and/or ankle provides a safe and effective alternative to surgery or a way to speed up the recovery process.  

Various foot problems can be difficult to heal such as ankle sprains, plantar fasciitis, and foot/ankle arthritis.  Each of the problems will benefit from PRP Therapy because you can physically repair damaged tissue with this non-surgical treatment. 

For example, in the case of foot/ankle arthritis, bone-on-bone friction within the joint occurs due to a lack of cartilage.  Cartilage acts as a “shock absorber” to absorb friction during movement.  Without cartilage, the bones bump and rub against each other causing pain, inflammation, and disability.  

PRP Therapy is able to physically repair damage cartilage to provide you additional healthy cartilage and as such, you may be able to avoid joint replacement surgery.  For more severe cases, we offer Stem Cell Therapy, which not only repairs cartilage but also adds new cartilage to the joint.  During your initial consultation, we can discuss which option will work best for you.  

Recover From Chronic Foot Injuries

In cases of injury like chronic ankle sprains and plantar fasciitis, PRP Therapy repairs damaged tissue accelerating the time of recovery or even making the recovery possible.  For example, some people suffer with long-term plantar fasciitis.  The reason this plantar fasciitis does not heal is often because their is a small tear in the plantar fascia band preventing healing.  Anytime someone walks around the small tear gets worse or stays the same allowing zero room for healing.  This is one reason why plantar fasciitis can lasts many months and be helped by conservative physical therapy. 

PRP Therapy repairs the small tear by repairing the cell tissue damage.  Once the small tear heals, the plantar fascia band will have a much easier time healing and people find that their case quickly resolves.  

PRP Therapy is a natural treatment made from he platelets found in the patient’s own body.  The platelets in PRP are derived through a simple blood sample and then formed into a dense platelet rich plasma containing a vast amount of growth factors.  These growth factors are a powerful healing property within the body used every day to heal cells and tissue in the body.  When applied to injury, they do an excellent job at healing tissue and as a result, much pain, inflammation, and immobility disappears. 

It is possible to heal a severe foot injury non-surgically.  Call (212) 268-8181 and schedule your consultation with me, Dr. Benjamin Bieber, M.D.

Female Hair Regrowth

Women that lose their hair often feel a sense of shame and embarrassment but I want you to know that female hair loss is normal.  According to the Academy of Dermatology, 40 percent of women have visible hair loss by the age of 40.  Though hair loss is normal, you are probably looking for a hair loss solution and right now, these solutions are better than ever.

As a physician with over 30 years of experience in the medical field, I help my patients naturally regrow their hair.  The solution is quite simple actually.  All one needs to do is physically repair damaged hair follicles.  One’s hair follicles create new and consistent growth but due to age and other factors such as sun damage, the cells within hair follicles begin to die off.  Eventually, many hair follicles cannot function as intended and not only does hair loss occur but the hair follicles cannot grow new hair in their place.

The solution is to re-invigorate these hair follicles and importantly, repair them at the cellular level.  When we can repair hair follicles at the cellular level, we can actually create a new and healthy hair follicle to replace the damaged one and this healthy hair follicle can do the job it is supposed too, grow hair.

ACell + PRP Hair Regrowth

I have tremendous success with ACell + PRP Hair Regrowth Therapy.  Both ACell and PRP are materials that repair damaged cells.  ACell is an extracellular matrix, which means it acts like a spider web to attract stem cells to the areas of hair loss.  These stem cells then physically transform into healthy hair follicle cells and replace the damaged hair follicle cells.

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is made up of the platelets found in one’s blood and contains over 30 growth factors.  Platelets are one of the most powerful healing cells in the body and in this hair regrowth treatment, we apply platelets to damaged hair follicles to repair them.  Once repaired, a healthy hair follicle can grow new and dense hair and as a result, you will reverse your hair loss and hair thinning.

This means at the end of this treatment, your hair loss will not only stop but you will begin a new and continued process of hair growth.  This is the power of fixing the problem the right way, which is to actually repair one’s damaged and aged cells.

It is possible to stop hair loss and consistently grow new hair.  Call (212) 268-8181 and schedule your consultation today.


Male Hair Growth


Some hair loss is to be expected as we age but consistent chronic hair loss can be reversed.   Hair loss occurs because hair follicles are dying prematurely.  The cells are dying, which stops hair growth.  The only way to cure hair loss is to repair these dying hair follicles and bring them back to life so they can produce consistent, dense hair growth.


Hair follicles, like all parts of the body, are made up of cells and when these cells die, the function of the hair follicle goes with it.  The way to create hair regrowth and reverse the process of hair loss is to physically repair these cells and regenerate new cells to replace the dead ones.  This is simpler than you think with modern medical technology.


Using a combination of ACell and PRP Therapy for male hair growth it is possible to regenerate healthy hair follicle cells that replaced damaged tissue.  The hair follicle, now made up of healthy cells, can function as the body intends it to and begin growing hair again.  Hair regrowth is as simple as replacing dead cells with healthy ones.


Repair Hair Follicles So They Can Grow Hair Again


ACell is an FDA approved extracellular matrix.  This is like a spider web that attracts stem cells to the areas of hair loss.  Then stem cells transform into healthy hair follicle cells.  It is the job of stem cells to repair cell tissue damage.  Stem cells are kind of like the repair man of the body.  When the cells of the body break down, stem cells repair the body part.  They do this by physically transforming themselves into healthy tissue that replaces damaged tissue.


An unhealthy hair follicle is made up of unhealthy cells and so, the hair follicle cannot grow hair.  But a healthy hair follicle, made up of healthy cells can grow hair.  ACell + PRP Hair Regrowth Therapy provides new and healthy cells for hair follicles to use.


PRP or platelet rich plasma is made up of platelets found in the body.  These platelets are one of the body’s most powerful healing cells.  For example, when you get a cut, platelets form a blood clot to stop the bleeding and repair damaged skin.  PRP contains over 30 growth factors that are like mini laser repairing the damaged cells of a hair follicle.  The combination of ACell + PRP make a powerful repair tool kit for dying hair follicles.


It is possible to stop hair loss and create new hair growth.  All that needs to be done is to repair dying hair follicles at the cellular level and ACell + PRP Hair Regrowth Therapy does exactly this.

Add Cartilage To Your Joints And Avoid Surgery


Arthritis is a common condition where the cartilage tissue between a joint or joints breaks down causing painful and inflammatory bone-on-bone friction.  When this occurs, people suffer from disability and frequent pain that disrupts normal day to day life.  One of the most recommended forms of treatment is joint replacement surgery since there isn't a known cure for Arthritis.


As a Rehabilitation Physician with over three decades of experience, I help my patients non-surgically treat Arthritis pain.  Perhaps, the most effective treatment that can act as a safe and effective alternative to joint replacement surgery is Stem Cell Therapy.  Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis reverses the breakdown of cartilage tissue by adding new and healthy cartilage to the joint protecting the joint again from bone-on-bone friction.  Stem Cells physically transform into healthy cartilage tissue that repairs current damaged tissue or adds tissue where none can be found.

Stem cells are actually everywhere in a person’s body and are able to transform into a wide range to tissue.  When a part of the body breaks down like muscle, ligament, or cartilage tissue, stem cells transform into the type of tissue needed to keep the body healthy.  Unfortunately, in a chronic condition such as Arthritis, there is not a continued source of stem cells after they get used up in the area.


This is where a new boost of stem cells can drastically improve your Arthritic condition.  By adding a new boost of stem cells, we are giving your body more of the tools it needs to heal itself creating a significant decrease in pain and improvement in mobility.  Stem Cells are taken from the patient’s own body, either from fat tissue or bone marrow.


Non-Surgical Treatment


Importantly, this treatment does not further injury your joint or invasively apply a new joint as with surgery.  Stem Cell Therapy is accomplished through a simple injection.  The healing process aligns with the body’s naturally recovery.  Within weeks, patients begin to notice a difference as the stem cells transform into cartilage tissue.  Continued Physical Therapy can then further help the area to grow in strength and mobility.


It’s vital to explore every option before undergoing surgery since surgery may come with unintended consequences such as long-term muscle or joint weakness.  A simple Stem Cell treatment can help you reverse the process of Arthritis by adding new cartilage to the joint allowing you to move without significant pain.

Stem Cell Therapy


Most people suffer at least one or two knee injuries in their lifetime.  This could be an ACL, MCL, LCL, or meniscus tear.  Other common knee problems include Arthritis or Tendonitis to name a few.  Sometimes, these injuries fail to heal fully and cause great pain and disability over a long period of time.  Other times, doctors recommend surgery for a knee injury.


I am here to tell you that there is a non-surgical option with a high success rate that is able to help you heal.  Stem Cell Therapy is one of the best non-surgical treatments to date in medicine and has a high success rate to significantly repair tissue damage in the knee.  In almost all cases, surgery doesn't actually repair the tissue damage but rather cuts out or replaces the damage.  Because of this, a patient can experience life-long weakness or disability though pain decreases.  It is much more effective to find a non-surgical alternative that does not harm your body and can heal your knee naturally.

Stem Cells are everywhere in a person’s body and serve to replace and repair damaged tissue.  Stem Cells are “neutral” cells able to transform into many different types of tissue including ligament, tendon, muscle, and even cartilage tissue.  Unfortunately, in a severe or chronic injury, all of the stem cells get “used up” and there is none left to finish the repair of the injury.  This is why surgery is recommended since the body now cannot heal itself.


Recover From A Knee Injury Without Surgery


Dr. Benjamin Bieber, M.D. harvests a sample of stem cells from either a patient’s bone marrow or fat tissue and then directly injects these stem cells into the knee.  The stem cells are then signaled by the brain to renew the healing process and repair damaged tissue.  Many patients see great improvement in pain and mobility within weeks of treatment. 

Knee treatment with stem cells is natural since it uses only the body’s own healing cells and actually aligns with the body’s normal healing process.  It is non-invasive requiring only a simple injection technique.  Further, you may be a little sore after treatment but there is no additional harm done to the knee like with surgery.  There are no hospital visits and you don’t need to be put to sleep.  The power of this new approach is that it applying a stronger boost of what the body already uses to heal itself.


If you have a knee injury, it is best to get a second opinion on what can be done non-surgically, especially if you are considering surgery.  If you are not considering surgery but just looking for a way to recover after months of pain and disability, this treatment is also for you.

The first step is schedule a consultation with me, Dr. Bieber, at my office in New York City and we will go over all of your options for non-surgical Stem Cell treatment.  Call (212) 268-8181 and schedule your consultation with me.
