Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis
Arthritis is a degenerative joint disease causing severe pain, inflammation, and disability and has no apparent cure. There are more than 3 million people diagnosed with arthritis in the U.S. every year and many of these people suffer with daily joint pain and stiffness. One of the main recommended treatments for severe arthritis pain is invasive joint replacement surgery but the risks of surgery are great. Surgery can create life-long irreversible symptoms like joint stiffness, weakness, and immobility. It is best to seek out a non-surgical solution for Arthritis before undergoing surgery.
The pain of Arthritis is caused by the deterioration of cartilage tissue in the joint that leaves a person susceptible to bone on bone friction during the joint's movements. Cartilage acts as a shock absorber to the body's daily movements so that the bones do not rub against each other. Without proper cartilage, bone on bone friction creates pain, inflammation and disability. Because Arthritis is a degenerative condition, cartilage tissue will continue to break down leaving one susceptible to constant and ever-increasing joint pain.
Fortunately, there is a safe and effective alternative to joint replacement surgery and this solution is Stem Cell Therapy.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Dr. Benjamin Bieber, M.D. applies Stem Cell Therapy to repair and regenerate cartilage tissue. By repairing cartilage tissue and regenerating new and healthy cartilage tissue, the joint gains its much-needed shock absorber and bone on bone friction is finally stopped.
Stem Cells are an integral part of the body's natural healing process. There are Stem Cells everywhere in a person's body and Stem Cells have a specific job to repair the breakdown of damaged tissue. Stem Cells are "neutral" cells able to transform into many different types of tissue, whether it's organ tissue, ligament tissue, tendon tissue, or cartilage tissue.
The problem with a degenerative condition like Arthritis is that once the Stem Cells, already in joint, repair the damaged cartilage, the degenerative process of Arthritis continues and breaks down more cartilage. Bone on bone friction and its inherent pain is not stopped. This is where Stem Cell Therapy is a vital solution for those suffering with Arthritis. By adding new stem cells to the joint, the body will have more of the tools it needs to repair cartilage.
Dr. Bieber derives Stem Cells from the patient's own body, either from bone marrow or fat tissue. These Stem Cells are then immediately injected into the joint using ultrasound guidance to pinpoint the exact spot where Stem Cells will provide the most benefit in repairing and regenerating cartilage tissue.
The Stem Cells, once applied to the joint, are signaled by the brain to transform into new and healthy cartilage tissue and once transformed, this new cartilage acts as the much need shock absorber in the joint to stop bone on bone friction. By stopping bone on bone friction, the pain, inflammation, and immobility of Arthritis significantly decreases and the patient finds relief from their Arthritis pain.
Importantly, with the addition of new cartilage, joint replacement surgery is often no longer necessary. Stem Cell Therapy is a way to heal Arthritis before attempting surgery. If successful, again surgery can be avoided and if not, surgery can then be attempted. It is of tremendous benefit to try Stem Cell Therapy before undertaking invasive joint replacement surgery.
- Organic (Stem Cells are derived from the patient's own fat tissue or bone marrow)
- Non-Surgical, Low-Risk Treatment
- Reverses the Process of Arthritis
- Often Alleviates Arthritic Pain by Over 50%
- May Prevent Needing Joint Replacement Surgery
Who Is This Treatment For?
Anyone with Arthritis can benefit from Stem Cell Therapy. It will significantly reduce the amount of pain you experience daily. Stem Cell Therapy is non-invasive, non-surgical, and organic. The stem cells we use are taken from the patient’s own body and in this way, there is a high rate of success that these Stem Cells will work to heal your body.
Surgery should always be a last resort option and Stem Cell Therapy holds the highest success rate in Orthopedic medicine to non-surgically relieve arthritic pain and reverse one’s arthritic condition. In this procedure, there are no hospital visits or overnight stays. It is a one day procedure, administered by an injection, and taking about 2-3 hours to complete. You are then free to leave afterwards and resume normal, restful activity. Even to reduce one’s pain by over 50%, Stem Cell Therapy will have a drastic improvement on one's standard of living. You don’t have to live in arthritic pain forever!
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy as an Addition to Stem Cell Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or PRP Therapy is another important non-surgical approach to repairing cartilage tissue and stopping bone on bone friction. Depending on the severity of your Arthritis condition, Dr. Bieber can apply both Stem Cell Therapy and PRP Therapy together to increase the success of your Arthritis treatment.
PRP is created from the platelets of the patient's blood and contains over 30 growth factors to repair damaged cartilage tissue and blood vessels. By repairing blood vessels along with cartilage tissue, the joint will gain improved blood supply and receive a consistent source of vitamins and minerals. PRP Therapy can be safely applied along with Stem Cell Therapy to increase the chances of a success treatment.
