The process begins by isolating a person’s own (Autologous) Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from a sample of bone marrow drawn from their hip. The MSCs then divide during a natural growth medium that comes from the identical person’s blood platelets. The result’s to require the relatively small number of MSCs found during a sample bone marrow, say 2 million, and expand them to a population of 20 – 50+ million. With these numbers, substantial tissue growth is formed possible. The MSCs are then injected with atiny low needle, under live x-ray, into areas of bone, cartilage, and ligament/ tendon damage.
Cartilage is regrown in generalized arthritis and/or solitary cartilage defects in knees, shoulders, ankles, hips, and fingers. It may grow to repair partial meniscus tears. Ligaments and tendon injuries, like sprains or partial tears of the ACL, PCL and MCL of the knee, the bodily structure and supporting ligaments of the shoulder, ankle and hand/wrist, moreover as plantar fasciitis, golfer’s and tendonitis, may be repaired. Bone is re-grown in chronic non-healing stress fractures or fractures of larger bones that haven’t healed in spite of casting or perhaps surgery. Chrinic conditions like avascular necrosis have also been successfully treated. Finally, some painful disc bulges in lumbar spine (low back) is corrected to alleviate back and leg pain.
People undergoing these treatments are back on their feet the identical day. Those undergoing hip, knee, and ankle injections can begin walking longer distances after the primary week. Their activity levels are gradually increased over the subsequent month, with the expectation that they’ll be back to their pre injury activity level after three months
