Stem Cell Treatment for Osteoarthritis

At Renovation Advanced Therapy Center procedures are performed using some of the most scientifically advanced facilities in the world.

 

Most Knee Arthritis/Arthrosis patients can be helped with Stem Cell from adipose tissue, Human Umbilical Cord Stem Cells and mainly from pre-differentiated Chondrocytes.

 

What is a Chondrocyte?

 

Chondrocytes are the only cells located in cartilage, they produce and maintain the cartilage matrix. Typically this is an outpatient procedure, however, patients may stay for 2 or 3 nights in our facilities.

 

About Arthritis/Arthrosis

 

Arthrosis is also the term for a degenerative disease of the joint where the cartilage lining the joint erodes over time. Arthrosis is a broad term for degenerative and other diseases of the joint and is more commonly understood in the form of Osteoarthritis.

 

Symptoms of Arthritis/Arthrosis

 

Knee injuries are a common condition, recent studies have found that in the United States, one-third of all doctor’s visits are due to muscle or knee pain, this condition is caused mostly on athletes because of overuse, injuries or previous accidents.

Usually, these kinds of injuries are treated through regular surgery, and most of the times the recovery is painful. The patient enjoys the benefits in the short term while in the long term the pain comes back and the condition becomes worse than it was before.

Depending on the damage degree of the injury, sometimes there are no options for surgery, but other times there is stem cell therapy as an alternative.

It is hard to get full recovery through traditional surgery because the knee is a complex and fragile joint, regeneration of the cartilage involved are almost null since they don’t have any nutrition source (no blood feeds the cartilage).

That is the main reason we recommend Stem Cells. The direct Knee Stem Cell injection is a regenerative method that nurtures the cartilage with stimulant factors, growth factors, and most important special cells, with the capacity of duplication and differentiation into cartilage. As a low invasive procedure, which means the infused stem cells will not produce any complications, this can be a better, faster and long-term solution to your problem (compared to other techniques such as surgery or PRP).

The benefits of stem cell knee injection appear within 3 weeks, since patients report knee pain being gradually reduced, more flexibility, and ease on their daily chores. No side effects (only skin redness and temporary inflammation that disappear in a few days). In the long run, patients can avoid knee replacement in best cases, and push knee replacement for a few years on worst cases.

 

How Stem Cell Therapy Works

 

Stem cells are harvested from adipose tissue, Human Umbilical Cord or  Pre-differentiated Chondrocytes which includes fresh cells, proteins, growth factors and other tools necessary to rebuild damaged organ or tissue. Although these substances exist naturally in an individual’s bone marrow/adipose tissue they are usually not released into a person’s bloodstream in sufficient quantities to repair damage throughout the body.

By liberating the stem cells and relocating them to an affected area, stem cell treatment solves this problem and provides relief to damaged tissues, including joints that have been affected by Knee Arthritis/Arthrosis.
