What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy can also be called regenerative medicine. It promotes the repair of diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissue in the body using stem cells. The procedure is non-evasive and aims to replace or repair damaged cells within the body.
The healthy cells are implanted in to a person which contribute to the repair of the defective tissue or muscle.
What are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are the body’s master cells. They are raw material from which all other specialized functions are generated. Under the right conditions, stem cells divide to form more cells, called daughter cells.
These daughter cells either become new stem cells (self-renewal) or become specialized cells (differentiation) with a more specific function, such as blood cells, brain cells, heart muscle cells or bone cells. No other cell in the body has the natural ability to generate new cell types.
What is Stem Cell Therapy used for?
We have used stems cells to help regenerate a variety of issues in our office. Some common uses for stem cell therapy are autoimmune, inflammatory, neurological, traumatic injuries, orthopedic conditions and sports injuries.
