Joint and bone pain can be excruciating. It interferes with your daily activities and affects your quality of life. The skilled team at Tri-State Orthopaedics in Memphis and Germantown, Tennessee, offers innovative stem cell treatment to relieve injuries, arthritis, disk, joint, and bone pain. Board-certified orthopedic surgeon Apurva Dalal, MD, has helped hundreds of men and women gain freedom from pain using regenerative stem cell therapy.
The human body is composed of many distinct types of cells, each with a specific job to do. A stem cell is unique because it has a remarkable ability to divide and become a completely different type of cell. Stem cells are used in regenerative medicine to replace cells that have been lost to aging or injury.
Injecting stem cells into targeted, injured areas — such as knees, shoulders, and joints — helps the body mend damaged tissues and heal itself. Typically, stem cells are taken from fat tissue, bone marrow, or amniotic fluid. Dr. Dalal specializes in the use of the BioD Elemental Tissue protocol, a groundbreaking regenerative approach using amniotic stem cell injections.
Whether it’s your knee, shoulder, foot, joint, or a disk, Dr. Dalal cleans the damaged area and numbs it with a local anesthetic. Right in the comfort and privacy of one of Tri-State Orthopaedics’ offices, Dr. Dalal injects the stem cell solution into the designated area. The number of necessary injections varies from person to person, but most people only require one treatment. The benefits last for many years.
One of the best parts of stem cell treatment is that it does not require surgery; it is minimally invasive and causes almost no downtime. In fact, that’s a primary reason why many men and women choose this procedure. It’s safe and effective, too. After the procedure, you have less pain, and your function and range-of-motion are restored.
As with other types of regenerative treatments, restoration builds over time. Within about 30 days, you should begin to see significant improvements in how you feel and move.
Anyone who suffers from sports injuries, musculoskeletal problems or degenerative conditions is a good candidate for stem cell treatment. Common conditions that respond well to the procedure are:
