If you suffer from elbow, hand, or wrist pain, Regenerative Cell Institutes stem cell therapy procedures are a viable treatment option! Stem cell therapy and regenerative medical techniques utilizing platelet rich plasma (PRP) have been proven effective in treating tendon and ligament issues of the elbow, hand, and wrist. In many cases, they can even alleviate the need for traditional surgery and other invasive medical procedures.
Elbow, hand, and wrist joint problems generally stem from arthritis, a degenerative joint disease that affects millions of Americans. While these problems can take many forms and cause varying degrees of pain and discomfort, stem cell therapy and regenerative medical treatments are often effective for alleviating pain and increasing joint function.
Adult stem cells are found in various tissues and can renew themselves and differentiate, by turning into other cells, to repair damage as it occurs. As we age or suffer from injury, our bodies often have difficulty recruiting enough stem cells to the site to fully repair the affected area. Regenerative Cell Institute’s stem cell treatments for elbow, hand, and wrist pain help overcome this problem by extracting stem cells from an area of high volume, then concentrating the cells and reinjecting them into the damaged area to help the body heal itself naturally.
Our patented stem cell procedures are suitable for a variety of conditions and are especially effective for injuries, arthritis and other orthopedic conditions.
Dr. Santos utilizes an innovative stem cell therapy protocol for degenerative joint disease of the elbow, hand, and wrist. He personally evaluates each patient to assess their condition and develops a customized care plan to deliver optimal results.
We begin by harvesting the patient’s stem cells and preparing them for injection, using a proprietary treatment method to yield the highest concentration of stem cells and stromal vascular fraction (SVF) which is rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors. This concentrate is then injected into the affected joint, under local anesthetic. We utilize fluoroscopic guidance techniques to ensure the injections are precisely targeted to the affected joint.
All stem cell treatments for elbow and hand problems are completed in a single appointment, as an outpatient procedure. The entire cellular surgical procedure takes approximately 3 hours and stem cell and SVF harvesting, procurement, treatment, and injection are completed within this timeframe.
