Bone Marrow Stem Cells

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a medical procedure that utilizes the unique properties of adult stem cells. These cells can self-replicate continuously; they’re also able to differentiate into many different types of tissue. 

Stem cell therapy involves harvesting donor cells from one area of your body and then injecting them into the site of your pain or injury. Stem cell therapy offers a natural alternative to orthopedic surgery or ongoing use of pain medications.

What are the benefits of bone marrow stem cells?

Bone marrow stem cells are relatively easy to harvest, and research has shown that certain types of bone marrow stem cells perform well when differentiating into musculoskeletal tissue. Bone marrow stem cells also contain factors that support and enhance nerve health and function. This makes bone marrow stem cells particularly useful when treating orthopedic conditions.

Which conditions can be treated with bone marrow stem cell therapy?

The caring providers at Carolina Regenerative Medicine use bone marrow stem cell injections to treat a wide variety of orthopedic concerns. Some of the most common conditions they treat with bone marrow stem cell therapy include:

  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Arthritis
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Bone fractures

Stem cell therapy is also useful for treating many kinds of neck and back pain.

What is involved in bone marrow stem cell therapy?

Your expert provider at Carolina Regenerative Medicine begins by administering a local anesthetic in the area of the donor site; most of the time bone marrow is harvested from the hip. Once the area is completely numb, your provider uses a needle and syringe to remove a small amount of bone marrow from the donor site. 

Next, your bone marrow is processed in a centrifuge to separate the adult stem cells from other components. Every step of your stem cell therapy procedure is performed using sterile, FDA-approved, medical-grade equipment.

When processing is complete, your provider numbs the target area and uses ultrasound technology to guide them as they inject the bone marrow stem cells into the location of your pain or injury. 

Following your regenerative medicine procedure, the natural healing process begins right away, but it can take a few months for optimal healing and pain relief.
