Hip Replacement Alternative Stem Cell Treatments

Hip Stem Cell and Plasma Rich Blood Platelet Procedures offer an exciting alternative for people who may be considering invasive hip replacement surgery. Our patients can avoid the long periods of downtime and painful rehabilitation that typically follow these invasive surgeries.

How does Stem Cell Hip Treatment work?

We know that Stem Cells are in all of us and that they act as the repair cells of the body. We also know that as we age or get injuries, we sometimes can’t get enough of these critical repair cells into the area they are needed in.

Our Hip Stem Cell and Plasma Rich Blood Platelet Procedure solves this problem by placing, amplifying and activating your body’s natural repair capabilities.

The Hip Stem Cell and Plasma Rich Blood Platelet Procedure begins by taking Stem Cells from your body. In addition, some blood is also taken from your arm. These are sent to a lab for processing. These cells are amplifying and activated and then re-injected into the hip joint. This is done with image guidance from fluoroscopy or ultrasound.

Typically these Stem Cells expand to up to 1,000 times more cells than what was initially harvested, and they are activated and stimulated.

What makes our procedures different than same day stem cell procedures?

Some Stem Cell Centers (US), use techniques where the cells are processed and injected the same day.

These procedures are significantly less likely to result in any long term improvements. In our process your cells are cultured for about two weeks to get more cells and activated to insure long term results.

The requirement is to deliver a much greater numbers of activated stem cells to the injured area than a simple one day process can achieve.

Don’t be fooled by so called super platelets, getting Stem Cells to expand and become the necessary repair cells takes the correct amount of time and activation agents.
