Stem cell therapy is an emerging procedure that may help you avoid surgery for conditions causing chronic pain. It uses stem cells, which are immature cells that can differentiate into a variety of tissue types. When injected, these cells stimulate healing for old and new tissue damage.
The stem cells used in your stem cell therapy procedures are harvested from bone marrow, usually in the hip bone. Using ultrasound or fluoroscopy guidance, your provider at North Texas Comprehensive Spine & Pain Center can safely inject the cells with precision.
Over the course of several months after one or more in-office procedures, depending on your treatment plan, your tissues continuously heal. In fact, you may see improvements for up to a year. A major potential benefit of this enhanced healing is relief from chronic pain.
North Texas Comprehensive Spine & Pain Center specializes in treating an array of conditions and injuries causing chronic pain. Because each individual has different needs, your providers consider a variety of state-of-the-art treatments before creating your customized treatment plan.
