Stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional open neck or back surgery. During the procedure, we harvest the patient’s stem cells using tissue from their hip bone or fat cells. These cells are then groomed to isolate the specific cells that will assist in the healing of the associated tissue. Once the cells are prepared, our skilled surgeons will insert the cells into the damaged intervertebral disc via injection. This allows the new cells to stimulate the regeneration process.
Do I Need Stem Cell Therapy?
During the natural aging process, the intervertebral discs that cushion the spine begin to degenerate. This is seen as their water mass decreases, resulting in the discs shrinking in height. As this occurs, increased pressure is placed on the outer layers of the disc, often causing the disc to herniate or bulge. This can leave patients in chronic pain. Our minimally invasive stem cell therapy offers patients with mild to moderate degeneration an alternative to the traditional discectomy or other invasive surgery.
Symptoms treated by the stem cell therapy may include:
- Localized pain
- Radiating pain
If you are suffering from these or similar symptoms, you may benefit from undergoing minimally invasive stem cell therapy at the Minimally Invasive Spine Institute.
Will Stem Cell Therapy Cure my Condition?
With the induction of modern medicine practices, treatments such as stem cell therapy have evolved to be able to treat a number of chronic neck and back conditions. The stem cell therapy at the Minimally Invasive Spine Institute can help to treat the underlying cause of the patient’s pain and symptoms.
Common conditions treated by stem cell therapy include:
- Bulging discs
- Slipped discs
- Herniated discs
- Osteoarthritis of the joints
- Discogenic back pain
- Spinal facet pain
- Sacroiliac joint pain
The Minimally Invasive Spine Institute Approach
Before recommending that our patients pursue surgery, we urge each patient to explore the conservative treatment options available to them. At the Minimally Invasive Spine Institute we craft each patient’s experience to their specific needs, exploring both conservative and surgical options together to create a unique treatment plan.
We have assisted patients suffering from the above conditions in finding relief through our stem cell therapy. If you are suffering from chronic pain and symptoms as a result of one of the conditions above, do not hesitate to find the relief that you deserve. Contact us today to see if you may be a candidate for stem cell therapy at the Minimally Invasive Spine Institute.
