Stem cells are part of your body’s repair system. Unlike other types of cells, stem cells are unspecialized and have no specific function.
However, stem cells can multiply and renew themselves and turn into specialized cells like muscle, cartilage, bone, blood, and nerve cells.
Stem cells have the potential to help many areas of medicine and science. Currently, researchers are studying the body’s repair cells to better understand the underlying cause of serious diseases like cancer.
Manhattan Medicine has unique regenerative medicine approaches to the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, including the use of orthopedic stem cell injections.
Orthopedic stem cell injections are one of the innovative regenerative therapies the board-certified specialists at Manhattan Medicine use to help you get back to your active lifestyle. The practice’s specialists focus on finding and treating the root cause of your painful condition or injury.
Instead of masking your symptoms with medication, they provide a full range of treatments and therapies that heal the damaged or diseased tissue. Your injured tissue needs stem cells to regenerate and repair the damage.
Manhattan Medicine provides orthopedic stem cell injections to stimulate the recovery and repair process. The board-certified specialists developed a technique that allows them to painlessly obtain your body’s stem cells and inject them into your damaged tissue.
The highly skilled board-certified specialists at Manhattan Medicine determine if you’re a candidate for orthopedic stem cell injections after a consultation.
They may consider you a candidate if you have a musculoskeletal condition that causes pain or is failing to heal as quickly as you expected.
Orthopedic stem cell injections are a more invasive treatment, and your provider may only recommend the innovative regenerative therapy after you try conservative treatments such as physical therapy, chiropractic care, or osteopathic manipulation.
Your provider at Manhattan Medicine reviews the details of your orthopedic stem cell injections at your consultation, so you know what to expect.
First, your provider obtains your stem cells and then injects the stem cells into your damaged tissue. During orthopedic stem cell injections, your provider uses real-time ultrasound-guided imaging to ensure accurate placement of the cells.
