26 Jul Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Injuries and Arthritis
Stem cell therapy uses your body’s own stem cells to help the injured or degenerated joints heal naturally.
The human body is made of billions of specialized cells. These cells go through a degenerative and regenerative process continually. As older cells die, new cells are born from stem cells. But when tissues are damaged during injury or due to degenerative conditions, structures become painful and less functional.
To speed up and assist healing, stem cells can be derived from the adipose tissue and injected into the affected area. This therapy has proven effective in treating knee conditions and injuries.

Patient Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that offers a great alternative to surgery or even joint replacement. Patients can return to normal activity immediately after the procedure. They can avoid the painful long rehabilitation periods that are typically required following joint surgeries. Risks and complications, such as infection and blood clots, are minimal.
