Knee Surgery or Stem Cell Therapy?

Thanks to advancements in the use of Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy for chronic knee pain, knee replacement surgery is not the only option.

 

There have been many innovations in the use of stem cells for knee injuries and osteoarthritis. While stem cells may come from various sources, our focus is on using products like umbilical cord blood and amniotic allograft.

Here is how Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy knee injections might be able to help your knees and get you back to leading an active and healthy lifestyle faster and with no downtime compared to traditional knee replacement surgery.

Let’s start with the basics.

 

What are Stem Cells?

Unlike other cells, stem cells are unspecialized or undifferentiated cells in our bodies that have the capacity to change into any healthy cell in our body. Meaning they can change into skin, bone, heart, and muscle cells to name a few. They have the unique ability to divide or differentiate into many types of cells with specific functions – such as muscle, skin or bone cells.

Stem cells can also give rise to new generations of undifferentiated stem cells, thus renewing themselves. Stem cells are located throughout our body in almost every organ and tissue such as bone marrow, fat, teeth, muscles, etc. 

 


Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy has been acknowledged in medical history across the world as a big discovery in natural healing. 


 

What are Stem Cells Used For?

At Eastside Medical Group, we are excited about Regenerative Stem Cell Treatments for knees because the knee injections can dramatically reduce a person’s need for surgery.

Instead of having to replace a knee with an artificial implant (that sometimes gets recalled from the manufacturer), stem cell therapy injections can be used to regrow new and healthy tissues that have been damaged and are in danger of or are degenerating.

 


Currently, the best results for Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy are most often seen in osteoarthritic joints.


 

Risks and Benefits of Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy for Knees

I’m sure you are already aware of the several risks associated with knee replacement surgery.

When you choose Regenerative Stem Cell Treatment as an alternative for knee replacement, however, most of those risks evaporate. The biggest risk you’ll face is the risk of infection at the injection site, but that is extremely rare because the procedure is so minimally invasive.

 

The benefits of Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy for knees, on the other hand, are excellent! 

  • The procedure is relatively quick, especially compared to surgery. The outpatient procedure can be done in less than 30 minutes.
  • The costs involved are reasonable compared to other clinics offering the same treatment. Your post-injection rehab is also covered by most major medical insurance.
  • Stem cell therapy for knees is natural. The stem cell treatments we use are derived exclusively after delivery of a baby, which is the safest and least-invasive method of extraction available. All donors go through a rigorous screening process, as determined by the FDA and American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB).

How about that recovery time comparison?

With surgery, the recovery time can last for months, hindering you from getting back to your life and even work.

With Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy, your recovery time is minimal. You walk in and walk out of the procedure on your own! In a few weeks, following the proper post-injection treatment protocol, you’ll begin to increase your activity levels and do more.

 


Eastside Medical Group offers a full-range of Regenerative Therapies in order to give our patients access to the widest range of treatments for fuller healing and relief.

Thinking About Regenerative Therapy?

Are you considering Regenerative Therapy?

 

Regenerative Therapy with Amniotic Allograft Injections is now available at Eastside Medical Group for treating chronic osteoarthritic pain.

This breakthrough treatment option provides pain relief and healing without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, hospital stays, or prolonged recovery and downtime from life.

 

Some of the amazing benefits of this treatment include the following:

  • Amniotic Allograft Injections contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates cartilage and promotes new cartilage growth.
  • Amniotic Allograft Injections contain no steroids. Instead, the injections rely on naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents, such as cytokines, which are small proteins released by cells that have a specific effect on the interactions between cells, on communications between cells or on the behavior of cells.
  • Amniotic Allograft Injections contain growth factors, which stimulate tissue growth.
  • Amniotic Allograft Injections carry no threat of patient rejection.

 

Regenerative Therapy using Amniotic Allograft Injections is very safe and effective for healing and repairing chronic osteoarthritic joint pain issues.

 

Amniotic Allograft Injections are:

  • FDA Approved
  • Donated by Healthy Moms at live birth C-section
  • Placental tissues and fluid are processed in “clean room” environment that exceeds American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) standards
  • Subjected to stringent United States Pharmacopeia (USP) testing
  • Have antimicrobial (germ-killing) and anti-fibrotic (i.e. ability to break down scar tissue) properties as well
  • SAFE! No Reported Adverse Effects or Rejection

Regenerative Therapy has been acknowledged in medical history across the world as a big discovery in natural healing.

 

How is Regenerative Therapy with Amniotic Allograft Injections done?

After your initial consult with our experienced doctors to see if this type of treatment can work for you, we schedule a time for you to come into our office for the procedure, which takes less than one hour to perform. 

Jessica Gross uses ultrasound-guided imaging to find the best place to inject the matrix mixture of amniotic tissues, stem cells, proteins, collagen and hyaluronic acid into your joint. 

The stem cells then start to metamorphosize into different cells; this allows the stem cells to become tissue cells, bone cells, or other kinds that are needed in that area. This ability to become whatever cells are necessary in the affected area is what medical practitioners believe is so unique about Amniotic Allograft stem cell growth.

This huge number of stem cells injected into the body will help in healing the injuries at an accelerated pace. 

 

 


The best results for Regenerative Therapy are most often seen in osteoarthritic joints.
