By placing the undifferentiated cells into a site that needs healing, they can begin to rebuild the torn ligaments, assist healing damaged cartilage or repair other injured tissue
Undergoing a new medical treatment can be very nerve-wracking, and at Elite Regenerative Stem Cell Institute in Johnstown, we understand when people are nervous before receiving treatment. Stem cells are still relatively new to the medical world, and at our state of the art facility, we’re still discovering more about their potential to help the body heal. When it comes to orthopedic injuries, the traditional choice was to opt for surgery to repair a torn ligament in a knee or mend a rotator cuff in a shoulder. With regenerative procedures, a person can now heal faster and face less recovery time than he or she would following traditional surgery.
Patent Pending Stem Cell Treatment
Following the stem cell harvest, the gathered stem cells are concentrated using a state of the art and patent pending technique to increase their potency and then injected into the injured site. By placing the undifferentiated cells into a site that needs healing, they can begin to rebuild the torn ligaments, assist healing damaged cartilage or repair other injured tissue. Depending on the part of the body that is affected and the extent of the injury, it may be necessary to receive additional injections in the future. Our doctors will speak with you about the best approach for helping your body heal.
The stem cell injection is done under local anesthesia, and in some cases conscious sedation may be used to make your experience comfortable and one of a kind. If you experience pain or sensitivity following the procedure, we can recommend the best methods for treating those symptoms. Mild pain relievers and ice packs often do the trick, but if you experience increased discomfort, please contact us right away. Our goal is to help you heal and make you as comfortable as possible, not increase your pain.
