The body has incredible healing powers – bone, muscle and even cartilage can repair itself when given access to biological substances stored in the body. Stem cells and other biological healing elements can be harvested and reintroduced to damaged tissue to stimulate healing and repair. Using biological substances to enhance tissue healing is called regenerative medicine, one of the treatment modalities we offer at Robotic Hip and Knee Replacement LA in Beverly Hills.
Stem Cell Therapy for Joint Preservation
Stem cells are unique cells that have the ability to transform into any type of tissue. They are essentially “blank” cells that can become bone, muscle, cartilage or almost any type of tissue in the body. There are different types of stem cells stored in the body, including in fatty tissue or bone marrow. The stem cells can be harvested through minimally-invasive procedures, then sterilized and reintroduced to the body through injections. Stem cell injections can be used for joint preservation treatments or to aid in tissue repair after surgery – there are no side effects or negative complications from using stem cell therapy.
Regenerative medicine has been evolving in the last few decades for joint therapy. Stem cells, platelet-rich plasma and other biological elements can help naturally repair joint tissues, reducing inflammation and preserving joint cartilage. In most cases, regenerative medicine treatments are completed in a series over a few months, giving the joints time to repair and heal. Since the substances are biological and usually derived from the patient, there are no concerns about poor reactions to the treatment.
At Robotic Hip and Knee Replacement LA, Dr. Farzin Kabaei and our team are dedicated to offering cutting-edge treatment options for patients. We are excited to offer innovative regenerative medicine treatments and therapy for patients that can offer joint preservation and pain reduction benefits.
