A Viable Alternative to Total or Partial Joint Replacement
Stem cell therapy is quickly becoming a viable option for a myriad of medical conditions. In fact, stem cell therapy is becoming common practice for patients in need of joint replacement surgery. Frequently, these patients are able to avoid this surgical procedure and are able to significantly improve function of the joint. Common conditions treated include:

• Degenerative Joint Disease
• Orthopedics
• Treatment of Arthritis
• Osteoarthritis
• Meniscus Tears
• ACL Tears
• Fracture Repair

• Rotator Cuff Tears
• Torn Labrum
• Back Pain
• Disc Degeneration
• Neck, Arm, Wrist, Hand, Finger, Foot & Ankle Pain
• UCL Tears
• Tennis Elbow

PRP injections cost less than stem cell procedures and are commonly used in less severe injuries and orthopedic conditions. The concentrated blood platelet injection contains healing growth components that increase the body’s natural ability to repair itself. PRP treatments can be effective because platelets have a stimulating effect on the stem cells within the targeted area. Stem cells are found throughout the entire body and play a key role in repairing damaged tissue, so a primary goal in platelet treatments is to get these powerful cells to work harder and faster.
