How can it help you?
Stem cell therapy is a very versatile treatment for treating a number of orthopedic ailments. It can be used to promote healing in larger joints, such as the hips and knees, as well as smaller joints such as wrists and elbows.
What to Expect during Stem cell procedure
This minimally invasive procedure is done under local anesthesia. First, with or without sedation your bone marrow or fat will be harvested. The aspirate is then prepared to extract stem cells. Ultrasound will be used for precision and accuracy. In the second part of the procedure, your APMI physician re-injects your stem cells into the treatment area using ultrasound for precision and accuracy.
How are stem cells obtained
The human body keeps a reserve of stem cells available to help repair injured and degenerated tissues. It is safe to retrieve them for therapeutic purposes. Stem cells remain in reserve, in the marrow cavity of your bones and fat collection. Typically the easiest place to harvest these stem cells is from the back of the hip area (iliac bone) & abdominal fat.
