What Is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine. The experienced team at Dr. McKenna’s Orthopedics and Biologics has dedicated their practice to providing stem cell therapy treatments helping patients heal diseased and damaged tissue.
Stem cells serve as your body’s raw material and have the ability to transform themselves into specialized cells, such as bone, muscle, or blood vessel cells. Stem cell therapy harnesses the power of your body’s natural healing elements to accelerate the healing process.
The experienced team at MOAB combines your body’s own bone marrow stem cells with amniotic membrane tissue to maximize the benefits of your stem cell therapy. The specialized treatment contains over 100 different growth factors and 60 times the amount of prostaglandins as other forms of stem cell therapy treatments. The combination of growth factors and prostaglandins significantly reduces inflammation to accelerate tissue regeneration.
Am I a Good Candidate for Stem Cell Therapy?
The specialists at Dr. McKenna’s Orthopedics and Biologics determine if you’re a good candidate for stem cell therapy after a comprehensive evaluation. The orthopedic specialists use the cutting-edge treatment to heal a number of injuries and pain conditions including:
- Lower back, knee, and shoulder pain
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Sport injuries
Researchers have only just started tapping into the potential healing powers of stem cell therapy and the team at MOAB is on the forefront of research and will continue to expand their treatment options to provide their patients with the most advanced care.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
Stem cell therapy accelerates your body’s natural healing process. During treatment, your specialist injects the stem cell therapy into your diseased or injured tissue. The growth factors, prostaglandins, and stem cells then start the healing process by reducing inflammation and stimulating the regeneration of new, healthy tissue to replace the diseased or damaged tissue.
Your specialist at Dr. McKenna’s Orthopedics and Biologics may provide your stem cell therapy alone or combine it with a surgical procedure so you get the most benefits.
