Mesenchymal stem cell treatment, a form of regenerative medicine, is available at Tampa Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group. Located near Brandon, Florida, our practice is led by board-certified physicians with ample experience diagnosing and treating patients with a broad spectrum musculoskeletal conditions. We take a conservative approach to treatment that, when possible, focuses on avoiding extensive surgery through the use of progressive therapies, including stem cell therapy.
Mesenchymal stem cell treatment does not involve the use of embryonic stem cells. Instead, it utilizes stem cells that are harvested from the patient’s own bone marrow, a rich source of regenerative cells. Stem cells may also be derived from amniotic membrane and fluid. These harvested cells are then injected directly into the injury site, triggering the body’s natural healing mechanisms and helping to reduce pain, increase mobility, and accelerate the recovery process in some cases.
Stem cell therapy may be suggested for patients with:
- Knee, hip, or shoulder osteoarthritis
- Labral tears
- Meniscus tears
- ACL tears
- Rotator cuff injuries
- And more
