Stem cells have the unique ability to multiply and either form new stem cells or other specialized types of cells. For example, one stem cell can turn into another stem cell, a cartilage cell, a nerve cell, a muscle cell, or a bone cell.
Stem cell therapy involves injecting stem cells into an area of injured or damaged tissue, such as an arthritic knee joint. The stem cells can regenerate healthy cartilage, bone, and nerve cells to health the joint and reduce pain and inflammation from arthritis.
There are different types of stem cells. The team at OMNI Pain & Precision Medicine uses mesenchymal stem cells, which occur naturally in various places in your body, including bone marrow and fat tissue. The bone marrow in your pelvic bone is a common place to get stem cells from.
Mesenchymal stem cells may also come from donor umbilical cord tissue from healthy, full-term infants after birth. Donor cells undergo rigorous processing in a certified lab to ensure the highest degree of purity and quality before use.
The team at OMNI Pain & Precision Medicine uses stem cells to treat a wide range of painful and disabling conditions, including:
For some patients, stem cells can reduce or eliminate the need for opioid medications and invasive procedures like surgery.
First, the team at OMNI Pain & Precision Medicine carefully evaluates your condition and performs a physical exam to make sure stem cell therapy is right for you. Then, they recommend the best course of treatment for your specific condition.
If you have pain from a herniated or damaged spinal disc, they may recommend the Biodisc® procedure. The team at OMNI Pain & Precision Medicine developed this procedure to relieve chronic back and neck pain from problems like degenerative disc disease and herniated discs. Biodisc® involves administering stem cells directly to the damaged disc.
