Stem cell therapy is a regenerative, nonsurgical treatment option for joint and spinal pain. This makes it an increasingly popular treatment option for people experiencing pain from injuries or chronic conditions.
If you’re looking into receiving stem cell therapy, your choice of the clinic is a major decision. For your safety, as well as the best possible results, you need a stem cell clinic that’s trusted, licensed, and uses the highest quality of regenerative materials.
As you select a stem cell clinic, look for these qualities:
Experience in Regenerative Medicine
Stem cell therapy is a relatively new treatment option for pain. However, you can still find seasoned practitioners who have comprehensive experience in regenerative medicine. Years of experience in regenerative medicine provide physicians with the tools and confidence to complete stem cell treatments at the most advanced level.
Stem Cells From an Autologous Source
The stem cells used in stem cell therapy should be derived from an autologous source. This means that it comes from your own body. Stem cells from an autologous source are a sign of a legitimate stem cell practice because taking stem cells from the patient’s own body prevents immune system reactions to a foreign substance. This reduces the risk of complications from the procedure.
Radiographic or Ultrasound Guidance
For optimal precision and accuracy, the best stem cell clinics utilize radiographic or ultrasound guidance for administering stem cell therapy. These techniques allow the physicians to see exactly where the stem cells are injected, ensuring that they’re optimally placed.
The Regenerative Orthopedic Institute
Dr. Erick Grana at the Regenerative Orthopedic Institute has more than 2 decades of experience in non-surgical treatments for musculoskeletal conditions, making him an expert in regenerative medicine. Additionally, at our clinic, we harvest stem cells from the patient’s bone marrow at the back of the pelvis or from fat cells in the patient’s abdomen. Radiographic or ultrasound guidance are also used in all of our stem cell procedures. Contact us today to learn more!
