Stem Cell Therapy

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

One of the most exciting advances of recent years in orthopedic treatments has been the development of stem cell therapy. Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine performed at Ethos Orthopedic Surgeons that utilizes the body’s natural healing mechanism to treat various conditions. The use of Stem cells aid in the renewal and repair of damaged tissues, and have shown promising results in treatments of various sport and orthopedic conditions. We all have stem cells present in our bodies which acts as a natural repair system. There are many conditions which limit the number of stem cells going to an injured  area. Contributing factors may include age, weight, and overall health. Stem Cell Therapy amplifies the body's natural ability to repair itself.

Stem cells have a variety of unique qualities that make them an excellent reparative and restorative treatment option for multiple joint conditions.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Replicating and producing new bone, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and muscles
  • Reducing inflammation and relieving pain
  • Promoting cell growth
  • Increasing blood vessel growth
  • Secreting growth factors

Dr. Brian Yost and Dr. Christina Pantazopoulos at Ethos Orthopedic Surgeons use adult stem cell therapy to heal conditions such as:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendon inflammation and injuries
  • Bursitis
  • Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Fractures
  • ACL injuries
  • Meniscus injuries

How long does it take to see results of stem cell therapy?

It takes some time for stem cells to differentiate and start repairing and restoring damaged areas of tissue. In most cases, repair and regeneration takes about two to three months to complete, but most people begin to notice improvements before that time.
