Repair Your Knee Injury With Stem Cell Therapy


There are many different knee injuries that doctors immediately recommend surgery.  In many cases, surgery is largely unnecessary but the doctors are unfamiliar with an effective non-surgical treatment that can help the patient.  Stem Cell Therapy is perhaps the best non-surgical treatment to repair a wide range of knee injuries including MCL, LCL, ACL, and Meniscus tears.  


Knee surgery is invasive and risky.  There is often unforeseen complications such as long-term weakness, stiffness, and immobility.  There is also a long-term and painful rehabilitation process that will keep you disabled for six months to a year.  Stem Cell Therapy is applied through a simple injection technique.  There is no additional damage done to the knee and rehabilitation process only includes what was originally needed for the injury.  


I write this article to let you know that you have options other than surgery.  You can call (212) 268-8181 and schedule a consultation with me, Dr. Benjamin Bieber, for a second opinion.  You may not need knee surgery.  If you aren’t thinking about surgery, this treatment is still an excellent way to accelerate the recovery process of a knee injury and limit any long-term symptoms.  


By applying Stem Cell Therapy for MCL, ACL, LCL, and MCL tears, long-term symptoms are mitigated because it aides in rapidly healing damaged cell tissue that may have not repaired on it’s own.  Many professional athletes are turning to Stem Cell Therapy to avoid season ending surgery and repair cell tissue damaged that has inhibited them for years.  


Safe And Effective Stem Cell Therapy


Stem Cell Therapy can be considered a natural treatment because it applies stem cells only derived from the patient at the date of the procedure.  Dr. Bieber harvests stem cells using a special injection technique from either the fat tissue or bone marrow and then immediately applies the stem cells to the area of injury in the knee.  Dr. Bieber uses ultrasound guidance technology to see inside the knee during treatment.  He is able to see the optimal location for placing the stem cells with this technology and this improves the success rate of the procedure.  


Stem Cells physically repair damaged cell tissue as well as transform into healthy tissue that replaces current damaged tissue.  Stem Cells are everywhere in the body but during a traumatic injury, there often aren’t enough stem cell in the area to fully repair the knee.  By adding a boost of stem cells, we are supplying the body with enough materials to accelerate the repair of the knee.  Surgery is recommended because it is seen as the only option to repair the body when the body cannot do it itself.  With Stem Cell Therapy, the additional stem cells help the body repair itself.  It is therefore a safe and effective way to avoid surgery and repair the knee.  


If you have had a knee injury and are looking for the best non-surgical treatment method, Stem Cell Therapy is definitely something you should look into.  It has a high success rate and aligns with the body’s natural healing process.  As a Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Medicine Specialist, it the best non-surgical treatment I have witnessed in my 30 years of practicing medicine.

Reverse The Signs Of Facial Aging


As we age, our facial tissue ages too.  The breakdown of this cell tissue is the cause of many of the signs of aging including wrinkles and crow’s feet.  Fortunately, there are non-surgical and natural treatment methods that repair damaged facial tissue and replace this damaged tissue with new and healthy cells.  As a result, youthful glowing skin can be achieved non-surgically and without adding toxic chemicals to your face.    


Bio Facial Rejuvenation is one of the most apt treatments to rejuvenate facial tissue because it applies a naturally occurring material derived from the body’s own healing cells.   Dr. Benjamin Bieber, M.D. applies PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy as a means to counter-act and reverse the facial signs of aging.  PRP, applied to the face, stimulates the onset of new fibroblasts, collagen, and elastic that break down damaged facial tissue and regenerate healthy cells.  The end result is reduced wrinkles and other facial signs of aging like tired eyes and crow’s feet.   


PRP is derived from a blood sample during the procedure and then, using a special injection technique applied to the face.  It contains over 30 growth factors to repair damaged cell tissue, which in effect, regenerates healthy tissue to replace and repair current aged tissue that is the cause of many of the signs of aging.  Many skin areas are suitable for PRP treatment including forehead lines, eye circles, lip wrinkles, mouth frown, crow’s feet, and more.  


This non-surgical treatment can be considered natural since the material used is derived simply from a blood sample.  It is completed start-to-finish in our office.  There are no hospital visits or overnight stays.  You are allowed to leave once the procedure is finished and continue with your day.  


Three Stages Of Rejuvenation


There are three stages of the healing process during Bio Facial Rejuvenation: Inflammation, Regeneration, and Remodeling.  During the first stage, inflammation, fibroblasts enter the site and begin breaking down old cells.  These fibroblasts are responsible for stimulating renewed healthy.


During the Regenerative stage, which lets for several weeks, the fibroblasts transform into myfibroblasts and new collagen is produced.  In the final Remodeling stage, collagen is continually produced and also matures and strengthens.  As a result, facial tissue is repaired, which rejuvenates the skin improving appearance and renewing the skin’s original youthful glow.  


This treatment is an effective alternative to invasive Cosmetic surgery requiring only a simple needling-based injection technique.  Platelet Rich Plasma is becoming the go-to non-surgical facial treatment because it applies platelets from the blood, a naturally occurring substance and therefore, there is little risk and is not made up of artificial chemically-based material.


Dr. Bieber has helped many people improve their appearance with what is known as the Vampire facial.  Call (212) 268-8181 and schedule a consultation.  

Avoid Surgery and Relieve Knee Pain




The knee joint is one of the most common to develop significant Arthritis with chronic pain, inflammation, and immobility.  The cartilage inside the knee joint progressively breaks down leading to bone-on-bone friction and this friction is a constant source of pain.  


The cartilage in the joint is supposed to protect the joint from the body’s movements and from bones rubbing against each other.  It is too act as a “shock absorber” when the body puts pressure on the joint.  Unfortunately, Arthritis and it’s inherent chronic inflammation causes the cartilage to consistently break down.  Eroding cartilage leads to bone-on-bone friction in the joint and it is at this point that doctors begin to recommend patients for surgery.  


Since there is no known cure for Arthritis, joint replacement surgery involves replacing the current “diseased” joint with an artificial joint.  This of course doesn’t solve the problem of Arthritis but often relieves significant Arthritic pain.  This though comes at a great price.  Invasive surgery is extremely risky because of the possible unforeseen consequences.  The after-math of surgery and a long-period of physical therapy and rehabilitation is not only painful but many patients experience life-long weakness or stiffness in the joint.  Putting in place an artificial joint is not without it’s downsides.  



Stem Cell Therapy




Dr. Benjamin Bieber applies Stem Cell Therapy, a non-surgical approach to repair damaged cartilage that can alleviate significant Arthritic pain and disability.  This treatment is a safe and effective alternative to joint replacement surgery and importantly, can be utilized  as a “try-first” treatment, meaning that if it works, then surgery can be avoided and if not, surgery is still an option.  While success can never be guaranteed, a high percentage of Dr. Bieber’s patients see a significant improvement in joint function and pain relief at a Stem Cells treatment.  


Stem Cell Therapy for knee Arthritis applies adult stem cells or stem cells taken from the patient’s own body to the knee joint in order to stimulate the repair of cartilage tissue.  These stem cells are harvested from the fat tissue or bone marrow of the patient and then immediately injected into the knee joint.  Once inside the joint, the stem cells physically transform into healthy cartilage tissue that replaces and repairs current damaged cartilage tissue.   The knee joint now has new healthy cartilage tissue that can act as that important “shock absorber” within the joint and a significant decrease in inflammation, pain, and immobility is a likely result.  


After Stem Cell Therapy, many of my patients are extremely happy to experience pain relief and this treatment can be considered natural since it is applying only cells taken from the patient’s body.  It is very important to seek out a solution that may help you avoid surgery or just make your life more pain-free and satisfactory.  

We look forward to helping you achieve pain relief.  Call (212) 268-8181 and schedule a consultation with Dr. Bieber. 


Regrow Your Hair And Stop Hair Loss


Stopping hair loss is possible.  Hair regrowth is possible.  The solution involves repairing damaged hair follicles at the cellular level.  The job of a hair follicle is to grow new, thick hair but when the cells of that follicle are damaged, this is not possible and hair loss occurs.  Dr. Benjamin Bieber, M.D. applies ACell + PRP Hair Regrowth Therapy to repair hair follicle damage, create healthy hair follicles, and promote renewed hair growth. 


ACell is an extracellular matrix approved by the FDA.  This matrix is placed throughout the scalp in the areas of the most hair loss and then attracts stem cells to these areas of hair loss.  The stem cells then undergo a process called cellular regeneration, where they physically transform into healthy cells that the hair follicle needs to repair.  These new healthy cells repair and replace the current damaged cells of the hair follicle and as a result, the hair follicle becomes again healthy.  Because of ACell, a healthy hair follicle is created, which means that hair regrowth can now occur.  


The second material used in this non-surgical hair regrowth treatment is PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma.  PRP contains over 30 growth factors that both repairs damaged tissue at the cellular level and blood vessel.  You now understand why repairing cell tissue damage is vital to repairing a hair follicle but repairing blood vessel damage is also crucial.  By repairing blood vessel damage, hair follicles are introduced to a new blood supply, which contains vital nutrients, minerals, and vitamins.  This blood flow will keep the hair follicle healthier for longer and therefore, grow hair for longer.  


Many people have heard about PRP Hair Therapy before but ACell + PRP Hair Regrowth Therapy is much more effective than a standalone PRP treatment.  ACell + PRP Hair Regrowth Therapy can accomplish in 1-2 treatments what PRP alone can in 3-4 treatments.  


Hair regrowth is very much possible.  It all has to do with repairing hair follicles at the cellular level.  Some people call this cellular regeneration or cell rebirth and this is accomplished through stem cells.  ACell triggers stem cells to perform in your areas of hair loss, which repairs poor functioning hair follicles.  


You are not alone in this problem.  Dr. Bieber helps people everyday stop the process of hair loss and hair thinning.  Hair Regrowth can be accomplished without invasive hair transplant surgery as well as improves the results of hair transplant procedures if so desired.

Stem Cell Therapy For Rotator Cuff Tears


There are different options to consider before undergoing Rotator Cuff Tear surgery.  Both Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy offer effective alternatives to shoulder surgery and can even be used in combination to increase the success of treatment. 


Stem Cell Therapy is a non-surgical treatment that applies adult stem cells to the shoulder in an effort to repair the tissue damage to the rotator cuff.  It can also accelerate the recovery of the rotator cuff to the point where the body can fully heal itself on it’s own.  The Stem Cells are derived from either fat tissue or bone marrow.  Dr. Bieber also can apply placenta tissue which increases the recovery rate.  This placenta is not from an aborted fetus but from the placenta tissue that is saved after a baby is born.  


Dr. Benjamin Bieber, M.D. applies stem cells to the shoulder using ultrasound guidance, which is an imaging system that allows Dr. Bieber to see inside the shoulder during treatment.  This helps Dr. Bieber see exactly where the stem cells should go to produce maximum benefit.  Once applies, stem cells physically transform into healthy muscle and tendon tissue that repairs and replaces current damaged tissue.  

This replacement provides health cells to the rotator cuff that heals damaged tissue allowing for the repair of the rotator cuff and doing so, creates a healthier shoulder.  If successful, the shoulder is can be fully or partially healed after Stem Cell Therapy.  Even a partial healing will improve the body’s ability to heal the shoulder on it’s own in an injury that was once too severe for the body to do so.  


Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP Therapy for a Rotator Cuff Tear uses a blood sample to create Platelet Rich Plasma, which contains over 30 growth factors to repair tissue damage and blood vessel damage.  In most rotator cuff tears, Stem Cell Therapy is the optimal treatment but Dr. Bieber can apply PRP Therapy in combination with Stem Cell Therapy to improve results.  


An Effective Alternative To Shoulder Surgery

Both PRP Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy are being used by professional athletes to help them heal injuries and avoid season or career-ending surgery.  What is great is that these treatments can be applied before surgery.  If successful, surgery can be avoided and if not, surgery is still an option.  A Stem Cell treatment for a Rotator Cuff Tear has also indicated that it can help improve the results of surgery as some tissue is likely to be repaired in the process. 

Rotator Cuff surgery is an invasive procedure and unforeseen lifelong complications are a real risk.  It is best to seek out and try a non-surgical solution first and Stem Cell Therapy offers an excellent alternative to Rotator Cuff surgery.
