Stem Cell Therapy
Bay Area

Regenerative Medicine
at its best

Stem cell therapy is the use of stem cells to treat various injuries and disorders by promoting the repair response of the affected tissue. Also known as regenerative medicine, stem cell therapy for Bay Area patients is a treatment we provide which can lead to accelerated recovery.

Put simply, stem cells are the raw materials from which your body is made. They are the cells from which all of your other cells with specific functions generate. Stem cells divide to form more cells when exposed to the right conditions either in your body or in a lab.

No other cell in the body can generate new types of cells. This cell division is how any injured, damaged or diseased part of your tissue repairs and heals itself.

Stem cell therapy is a very effective method of treatment for all kinds of injuries and damages caused by accidents such as sports injuries or diseases such as arthritis. At Bay Area Orthopaedic and Sports Specialists, we offer advanced stem cell therapy for the treatment of a wide range of injuries and damages to the joints, bones, and cartilage.

How does stem cell therapy work?

Stem cells have the ability to divide and develop into any type of cell with a specialized function found in our bodies. The most common type of stem cell therapy practiced today is a bone marrow transplant, where the stem cells are taken from the bone marrow of the patient and then injected into the area of the body that is injured or damaged. The stem cells then get to work to promote the healing of the injured tissue.

In other words, stem cell therapy makes use of the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself. These naturally-occurring stem cells taken from the healthy parts of your body promote this self-healing process on the damaged area of your body. Not only can this method be used for treating injuries, but it can also even be used for treating certain medical conditions.

When stem cells are needed for a certain purpose, they can even be grown in a lab. The conditions in which they grow are manipulated to be as feasible for their development into the types of cells required such as blood cells, heart muscle cells, or nerve cells.

After these specialized cells are developed, they are then transplanted into the injured or diseased area of the patient’s body, where they promote healing and recovery. For instance, if you undergo a knee injury and you are also treated with stem cell therapy, the injected stem cells can contribute to the growth of healthy tissue in the area, thus promoting a faster recovery period.

Why is stem cell therapy
used in orthopaedics?

One area of medicine where stem cell therapy is often administered successfully is orthopaedics. As an orthopaedic establishment that is dedicated to bringing the most advanced tools, equipment and methods of treatments to our patients, Bay Area Orthopaedic and Sports Specialists proudly offers several cutting-edge treatments that involve stem cell therapy.

When stem cell therapy is combined with orthopaedic treatments, they offer all kinds of advantages for patients. For instance, because of stem cell therapy, healing may be accelerated which leads to quicker recovery time after a surgery.

Moreover, stem cell therapy can result in help with pain relief post-treatment, and also increase mobility. It may even eliminate the need for major, intensive surgeries such as total joint replacement surgery. In other words, stem cell therapy can aid the overall healing process of the injured or diseased area of the body, so that you can be back on your feet as soon as possible.

Dr. Warren Strudwick of Bay Area Orthopaedic and Sports Specialists is an experienced, board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who always goes above and beyond to ensure that he delivers the best possible care to his patients. This includes doing everything he can to give you the best results from stem cell therapy Bay Area can offer.

Orthopaedics and stem cell
therapy – the best of both worlds

Considering the numerous advantages that stem cell therapy offers and how well it complements various orthopaedic treatments, visiting an orthopaedic surgeon who can also offer stem cell therapy means that you, as a patient, get the best of both worlds.

The great thing about stem cell therapy is that it stimulates and encourages the natural healing process of the body using your own cells, as opposed to relying on artificial implants and/or prosthetic replacements. It is also often employed when treating severe conditions, even ones that many may think have caused far too much damage to respond to any sort of treatment.

Besides, stem cell therapy can help in avoiding post-treatment complications and risks that patients may experience after surgery, such as an infection or a slow recovery period.
