What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a natural method of repairing injuries and damage to the soft tissue. Stem cells are found in bone marrow, and they are able to become new bone, muscle, tendon, and blood cells at sites of injury and other damage. 

An outpatient procedure, stem cell therapy starts with extracting stem cells from a person's bone marrow. Then those cells are concentrated and injected into the site of injury or damage. Once injected, the stem cells work to heal the injury or damage. 

Stem cell therapy is used to treat many injuries and conditions, including:

  • ACL sprains and tears
  • Arthritis
  • Articular cartilage injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Labral tears 
  • Partial rotator cuff tears
  • Trigger finger
