Cartilage Repair With Stem Cells
Arthritis occurs due to inflammation and as a result, there is a severe breakdown of the cartilage in the body’s joints. The joint is located between two bones allowing the bones to move as intended and the cartilage is a shock absorber so that the two bones do not rub against each other causing friction, swelling, and pain.
With arthritis, the cartilage tissue breaks down revealing the bone behind the tissue. As a result, bones can rub up against each other causing inflammation, pain, and disability. Arthritis is a continuous degenerative process of this cartilage and the cartilage will continue to break down progressively throughout a person’s life.
Dr. Benjamin Bieber applies platelet rich plasma and stem cells for arthritis to reverse the decay of cartilage. Stem cells can physically add new cartilage to the joint and platelet rich plasma can repair the damaged cartilage tissue that is still active on the joint.
Dr. Bieber has had several patients avoid various types of surgeries such as knee replacement surgery and shoulder replacement surgery because the process of arthritis was reversed by stem cells and platelet rich plasma adding and repairing the cartilage of the joint. His patients experienced a significant decrease in the amount of pain they now have and a significant improvement in mobility.
Effective And Safe Alternative To Surgery
Stem Cell treatment and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment are effective and safe alternatives to surgery as with surgery, a person is often left with long-term complications and mild to severe forms of disability. Dr. Bieber’s mission is to help his patients avoid risky and invasive surgery so arthritis can be reverses non-surgically through a simple injection technique.
Dr. Bieber applies stem cells and prp with ultrasound guidance to find the exact spot where the stem cells and prp should be placed to achieve the maximum potential for success. The stem cells Dr. Bieber uses are from either bone marrow or fat tissue and have a high success rate to add cartilage to the joint.
Stem cells are fascinating in that they are able to transform into any type of tissue the body needs to repair itself. By applying stem cells to the damaged joint, the stem cells are signaled to transform into cartilage. This new cartilage protects arthritis patients from bone on bone friction giving them potentially years of mobility that they would not have if undergoing surgery.
The procedure is very safe and should be tried before deciding on surgery.
