Stem cell therapy is no longer only an experimental treatment, as these incredible cells are used in regenerative medicine treatments every day. Stem cells have the ability to transform to almost any type of tissue in the body, including bone, tendons, blood and many others. For damaged joints, this can offer a safe and effective way to repair damaged cartilage, ligaments, bone and other tissues, preserving the natural joint. At Robotic Hip and Knee Replacement LA, we offer stem cell therapy for joint preservation at our medical center in Beverly Hills.
Regenerative Medicine for Osteoarthritis
One of the most compelling uses for stem cell therapy or regenerative medicine in joint treatment is for patients with osteoarthritis. Harvesting stem cells from bone marrow concentrate or other sources in the body can be used for regenerative injections. Stem cells have shown the ability to help in joint preservation in patients with osteoarthritis. Injections of stem cells and other biological factors like platelet-rich plasma or bone marrow concentrate can stimulate tissue healing. Other benefits of stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis include:
- Reduced inflammation in joint tissues
- Less pain for the patient
- Slowing deterioration of cartilage
- Repair damaged tissues
While stem cell therapy cannot stop or cure osteoarthritis, it can be beneficial for managing pain and slowing the degenerative nature of the disease. Plus, stem cell therapy and other regenerative medicine treatments like PRP injections are safe. There are little to no negative side effects or health risks linked to using biological treatments for joint preservation. The procedure can be completed in one visit and there is no downtime needed after receiving the joint injections.
