Since 1968, the medical community has been harnessing the incredible healing, and regenerative power of bone marrow-derived stem cells. Bone Marrow Derived Regenerative Cell Therapy takes stem cells isolated from your bone marrow and relocates them to heal, regenerate and treat damaged areas and chronic conditions. This revolutionary technology is a result of decades of evidence-based research and advancements in the area of stem cells.
Why Bone Marrow Regenerative Cell Therapy?
A process called hematopoiesis, which occurs inside your bones, has been working to grow and regenerate cells in your body since you were in the womb. The human body is in constant high demand for blood cells, so the hematopoiesis process stays hard at work to produce. During hematopoiesis, hematopoietic stem cells are produced with the raw potential power to develop into white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Blood cells are vital to immune function and healing, so these stem cells are rich in growth factors that facilitate the repair and replacement of damaged cells. Mesenchymal stem cells are also found in bone marrow. Mesenchymal stem cells are reserved adult stem cells that help facilitate the regeneration of tissue naturally in the body. They are an integral part of wound healing, regulation of aging, and stabilizing vital organs. These mesenchymal stem cells are considered to be “raw potential” meaning they can differentiate into the tissue cells needed in a specific area. These mesenchymal stem cells have the potential to repair damaged cartilage, bone, tendons, muscle, skin, and connective cell tissue.
When bone-marrow derived stem cells (BMDSCs) are injected into an affected area, the inflammation in the body triggers the transformational property of the stem cells, and they start to work to repair and replace the damaged tissue. These cells incorporate themselves into the damaged area and immediately begin to improve the stability of the tissue and reduce any pain being caused by the damage. BMDSCs have been integral in advancing treatments for cancer, immune system disorders, degenerations in the bones and joints, damaged cartilage in joints, labral and labrum tears, meniscus tears, osteoarthritis, tendinosis and a wide range of other ailments. Bone Marrow Derived Regenerative Cell Therapy uses the natural renewing functions of stem cells in our bodies as a concentrated treatment that can be focused in a targeted area to achieve optimal healing results.
What Happens During Bone Marrow Stem Cell Treatment?
Bone Marrow Derived Regenerative Cell Therapy is an autologous therapy which means that the stem cells used for your treatment will be harvested from your own body. Bone marrow stem cells are collected with a process called peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. This is an outpatient procedure that is usually done within a few hours. Your doctor will use a local anesthetic for this process. Once the stem cells have been collected an apheresis machine will filter and return the cells to the body to begin the healing process. This process is usually painless, but some patients experience slight, minimal discomfort when being administered the anesthetic.
This minimally invasive procedure is completed in one day offering patients an effective treatment with a low impact on their normal life. Many patients return to normal activity within 3-7 days post procedure and experience minimal to mild pain immediately following the treatment.
Is Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cell Treatment Safe?
Bone Marrow Derived Regenerative Cell Therapy is an autologous treatment meaning, the stem cells being used are from your own body. Autologous treatments eliminate the potential for your immune system to reject the cells and also eliminates the potential for disease transmission. These are your own cells, concentrated and injected to perform the duties they were naturally created to execute. Bone Marrow Regenerative Cell Therapy is minimally invasive leaving a narrow margin for complications and adverse reactions. Patients benefit from this procedure because it is administered under the care of your doctor in a controlled environment in a same-day process.
Will I Get Results?
On average, many patients experience full healing as soon as four to six weeks from the treatment. There is no need for time off of work for a lengthy recovery period like with invasive surgery, and many patients return to work within a week of their procedure. Your doctor will work with you to get you back to your normal physical activity routine and make sure your body has the maximum opportunity to heal correctly.
As with any medical treatment, each patients’ response will vary so discussing options for your specific needs is key.
