Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a relatively new form of regenerative medicine that aims to help your body generate new tissues and repair its own injuries and damages. Stem cells are unspecialized cells that have the potential to turn into one of many different cells or tissue types in your body. 

Instead of using anti-inflammatory drugs like cortisone in your treatment, the team at Professional Podiatry Services of New York might recommend stem cell therapy or another form of regenerative medicine instead. Stem cells can help relieve inflammation while repairing your tissues at the same time. You’ll experience a reduction in your pain, faster healing, and a better outcome for your mobility after an injury. 

What are my options for stem cell therapy?

At Professional Podiatry Services of New York, the team offers several regenerative medicine treatment options. They help you select the right type for your treatment. Your options are:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP is a substance that the team derives from your own blood. It includes a high concentration of platelets or clotting blood cells that release growth factors when activated. The team injects PRP near your injury to cause faster and more effective healing. 

Living cell grafts

Living cell grafts come from your bone. The living cells in the bone are there to rebuild bone and heal bone injuries. The team might use a living cell graft to treat a bone fracture or degenerative bone loss. 

Amniotic therapy

Amniotic stem cells come from amniotic fluid and umbilical cords of healthy donor babies. The stem cells contain hyaluronic acid to lubricate your joints and growth factors to stimulate tissue growth. 

What can stem cell therapy treat?

Stem cell therapy is useful in several circumstances related to podiatry. The team at Professional Podiatry Services of New York might recommend PRP, living cell grafts, or amniotic therapy to aid in your treatment for:

  • Tendinitis
  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Torn ligaments

The team chooses your course of regenerative treatment based on the extent of your injury and your preferences. They teach you about each of your options so you can make informed decisions regarding your care. 

Stem cell therapy and other forms of regenerative medicine are highly promising for healing soft and hard tissue injuries, especially in the foot and ankle. For more information about stem cell therapy, request an appointment at Professional Podiatry Services of New York by phone or online today.
