14 May Cartilage Regeneration with Stem Cells
Cartilage regeneration sounds like sci-fi. Stem cell therapy has been treating several conditions and injuries and can help repair and regenerate cartilage damage too.
Cartilage repair and regeneration
Cartilage is a flexible connective tissue that begins to wear out as we age, as a result of osteoarthritis.
Cartilage regeneration can help to re-grow new cartilage. The body has the ability to repair itself naturally but this ability diminishes as we age. When stimulated with a high concentration of stem cells, new growth of cartilage can be triggered, reducing pain.
There are plenty of people who have tried physical therapy, medication, and other treatments but have failed to see an improvement in their symptoms.
Stem cell therapy uses highly potent stem cells derived from umbilical cord tissue. It is administered as injections at the affected site in a short outpatient procedure in the doctor’s office. There is no need for a hospital stay or prolonged rehabilitation. Patients can return to their daily activities within a day or two and start seeing results within a few weeks.
If you or a loved one is suffering from pain due to cartilage damage, consult a stem cell expert to understand whether you can benefit from stem cell therapy. Your stem cell doctor can assess you condition, symptoms and other factors to determine whether you are a good candidate for cartilage regeneration through stem cell treatments.
