Stem cell therapy is available in Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and the surrounding FL areas from the orthopaedic experts at Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group. A form of regenerative medicine, stem cell therapy is a nonsurgical alternative that has been used for decades to treat a variety of diseases and conditions and is increasingly showing promise in the fields of orthopaedics and sports medicine. Essentially, this treatment allows a patient to capitalize on his or her own body’s ability to heal itself by using regenerative growth factors and cells to assist in the restoration and repair of damaged or aging cells.
Regenerative growth factors and cells can be harvested from a patient’s bone marrow or adipose tissue. These growth factors and regenerative factors can also be found in amniotic fluid. Amniotic fluid is obtained from the placenta of elective C- section births. For many patients, a stem cell procedure in the shoulder, hip, knee, or other area of the body can relieve pain, increase mobility, and potentially delay or preclude the need for more aggressive treatments, such as joint replacement surgery.
Stem cell therapy can be effective for treating a number of sports injuries and musculoskeletal conditions, including:
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Labral tears
- Meniscus tears
- Osteoarthritis of the shoulder, knee, and hip
- And more
