STEM CELL THERAPY

Stem cells are the construction workers of the body’s repair mechanism. The primary role of stem cells is to maintain and initiate the healing of damaged tissue and replenish dying or damaged cells. Stem cells find the damaged tissue and have the potential to initiate its repair or regeneration.

TREATED AILMENTS

EC Medical Group offers Southern California an innovative, minimally - invasive treatment that is part of the growing field known as regenerative medicine. Stem cell therapy utilizes your own adult stem cells to treat acute sports injuries and chronic joint, soft tissue and disc degeneration. The procedure provides your body the potential to heal itself naturally - without the need for surgery, steroid injections or pain management medication.

  • Do you have a nagging sports injury?

  • Do you experience pain due to arthritis?

  • Have you been told by other physicians that you have a joint that is ‘bone on bone’ and are a candidate for joint replacement surgery?

  • Are you experiencing back pain and looking to avoid spinal fusion surgery?

 

If you answer yes to any of these questions, read on to learn if stem cell therapy in San Diego may have the potential to get you back to living an active, healthy lifestyle.

Platelet rich plasma is autologous (your body’s own) blood plasma with concentrated platelets. Typical concentrations of platelets in PRP are 5-10 times that found in blood. Platelets are small disk-shaped cells within your blood that contain natural sources of growth factors, proteins and cytokines that stimulate the healing of bone and soft tissues.

 

PRP is made of many different growth factors that are all products of blood borne platelets. This conglomeration of growth factors provides numerous ways of assisting in cell repair, some of which include: decreasing inflammation, improving cell growth, and act as signals to the bodies immune system. Depending on the specific cytokines, numerous metabolic pathways that aid in cell recovery are activated.

BENEFITS OF STEM CELL THERAPY
  • No risk of rejection – autologous stem cells are harvested from and reintroduced into your own body.

     

  • Minimally invasive – stem cell treatments are minimally invasive, in strong contrast to traditional treatments such as joint replacement. The procedures are out-patient and performed in approximately 3 hours. Patients generally do not require any post operative pain medication. Risks such as the increased likelihood of heart attack that have recently been found to be associated to the invasive character of hip or knee replacement are not present in stem cell treatments.

     

  • Avoiding surgery – we have use stem cells to help many patients avoid knee surgery such as knee replacement or athroscopy, find alternative to back surgery such as spinal fusion or lumbar disc replacement, and avoid many other orthopedic surgeries

  • Rebuilds your OWN healthy tissue

 

  • No general anesthesia – due to the minimally invasive character, only mild oral medications are necessary.

 

  • No cummunicable disease transmission.

 

  • Fast recovery – stem cell patients can return to work in 1-2 days and do typically not require bracing or crutches.

 

  • Significant pain reduction

 

  • Increased mobility

THE CELEBRITY TREATMENT

You have probably heard about PRP being used to assist professional athletes like Tiger Woods, Rafael Nadal, Kobe Bryant and Troy Polamalu to speed up their healing time. These athletes received PRP therapy after experiencing injuries that should have sidelined them for months, but instead experienced faster recovery time thanks to PRP treatments. 

Aging doesn't have to be work! If you or someone you know could benefit from Non-Invasive Stem Cell Therapy contact us today to schedule your consultation and regain the quality of life you once had!
