Stem Cell Treatment Q&A

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are the cells your body uses as raw materials to generate new cells and repair damaged tissue. Your body can convert stem cells into whatever type of cell your body needs, from muscle, ligaments, and tendons, to bones and nerves.

The team at the University Pain Medicine Center includes stem cell therapy in treatment plans for conditions such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Muscle injuries
  • Ligament injuries
  • Tendon injuries
  • Cartilage injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Surgery recovery

Stem cell treatments stimulate your body’s ability to repair itself by flooding damaged tissue with the necessary cells and nutrients. It can accelerate your healing response and provide lasting pain relief.

How does a stem cell treatment relieve pain?

Stem cell treatments help your body repair itself, resolving the injury or degenerative condition that’s causing your pain.

Healing your body provides lasting pain-relief and enables you to get back to your regular activities. It reduces your reliance on medicine that merely masks your symptoms and can help you avoid surgery.

What happens during a stem cell treatment?

Stem cell treatments are injections. The team at the University Pain Medicine Center often uses donated amniotic stem cells from the umbilical cords of healthy, full-term babies. They might also harvest stem cells from your body, either from your bone marrow or fat. 

All stem cells are “washed” to create an injectable serum. When your stem cell treatment is ready, your doctor prepares you for your injection. They clean your skin and provide a local anesthetic before injecting the stem cells. 

Depending on the location of your injured tissue, your doctor might use fluoroscopy X-rays or ultrasound to guide the needle to the right place. 

Stem cell treatments can accelerate your healing process, but your body still needs a little time, so you won’t see immediate results. Some patients need multiple treatments to achieve the best results.

Also, everyone responds differently to stem cell therapy. You might notice less pain in as little as two weeks, or your body might need more time to repair itself. 

How do I know if stem cell treatments are right for me?

The team at the University Pain Medicine Center provides comprehensive exams and testing to determine if stem cell therapy is right for you. They discuss all your treatment options and answer your questions to help you make the best choice about your health care and pain management.
