Stem Cells Repair And Regenerate Cartilage Tissue
Finding a solution to your arthritis pain is certainly not easy, especially for people with bone on bone arthritis. To figure out how to solve this problem, you should be aware of a few options that will help you find pain relief.
People with bone on bone arthritis are often recommended joint replacement surgery to add a new metallic, plastic, or ceramic joint and replace the old, damaged arthritic one. This type of surgery is risky and invasive. It can lead to long-term pain and permanent weakness. Unforeseen complications are a real risk with any invasive surgery.
I want to make you aware of Stem Cell Therapy, a non-surgical approach to repairing tissue damage in the joint helping your relieve pain and regain mobility in the process. Stem Cells are everywhere in a person’s body. They are a specialized cell able to transform into different types of tissue such as muscle, ligament, tendon, and organ tissue. When the body breaks down, stem cells regenerate new and healthy tissue to replace old, damaged tissue and the body is able to repair itself
In the case of arthritis, this continuous process of breaking down tissue does not allow for sufficient regeneration of cartilage tissue. Cartilage keeps breaking down without repair and bone on bone friction is eventually reached, where there is little to no cartilage in the joint
An Alternative To Joint Replacement Surgery
Having cartilage in the joint is vital to the health of the body and the joint acting as a “shock absorber” during the body’s movements. As the bones constantly rub and press against each other, pain and inflammation results due to constant friction and stress.
The solution is to add cartilage to the joint in order for the joint to be properly protected. Surgery does not add new and healthy cartilage to the joint but Stem Cell Arthritis treatment does. Stem cells are applied through a non-surgical injection and harvested from the patient’s own fat tissue or bone marrow during treatment.
Stem cells, once applied to the joint, begin to transform into healthy cartilage tissue to be utilized by the joint. This stops the degeneration process of arthritis as cartilage cell rebirth is fostered. After a successful stem cell treatment, many patients see a significant improvement in pain relief and mobility.
In some cases, surgery can be entirely avoided and in other cases, surgery may still be required after treatment depending on success of the treatment. Importantly, Stem Cell Therapy will likely repair damaged tissue in some capacity making the likelihood of a success surgery much greater.
If you want to avoid surgery, Stem Cell Therapy is definitely worth considering. Call and schedule a consultation with me, Dr. Benjamin Bieber.
