Stem Cell Treatment

About Stem Cell Injections

Dr. Daniel Southern - Stem Cell Injetion

We perform stem cell injections on a same day outpatient basis. The entire procedure is performed under local anesthesia so you will be comfortable and able to talk. Your body actually has several “storage sites” of stem cells that are available for us to use to repair degenerated and injured structures and tissues. We find that it is easiest and most effective to take stem cells from your hip bone. This procedure is performed using local anesthetic injections, only takes a few minutes and is painless. Once we obtain your stem cells, they are minimally processed to concentrate the ‘healing cells’ and within a few minutes we can transfer them into a syringe and use them to inject into the degenerated, damaged or injured areas. The entire injection procedure will take as little as an hour. Most people can go about their daily lives after the procedure with minimal or no discomfort. Some people begin to feel results immediately, although it’s more likely that it will take a few days or even weeks to begin to see significant effects or to feel that your symptoms have decreased. Keep in mind that stem cell treatment is a “repair” process which usually takes 2-3 months to be fully effective and produce the desired results. Typically, stem cell treatment is followed up with PRP injections one week and one month post procedure. These injections will help to support the pro-growth/healing environment created by the stem cells. Depending on the extent of tissue damage that has been repaired, as well as your general health, the healing benefits can last for months or years. It is important to understand that your lifestyle, work, athletic or sports activities can augment, sustain or detract from the long term treatment effect.

Regenerative Orthopedic Medicine Treatment using stem cells is often the nonsurgical treatment of choice to help patients heal and repair arthritis of the knee, hip, neck, and back. Regenerative Orthopedic injections using stem cells offers non-surgical treatment of injuries to cartilage or cartilage degeneration, including meniscus tears of the knee, labral tears of the hip, and annular tears of the lumbar and cervical discs.

If you are seeking a minimally invasive alternative to surgery to allow you to return to normal daily activities, a fit and active lifestyle or perhaps perform better in the athletic and sports activities you wish to enjoy, Regenerative Orthopedic Medicine treatment with stem cells may be an appropriate option for you.
