Regenerative Cell Institute offers a variety of groundbreaking non-surgical stem-cell treatments for people suffering from hip pain due to common injuries, hip arthritis, avascular necrosis, osteonecrosis, hip bursitis, or other degenerative problems related to the hip joint. In many cases, our stem cell therapy for hip pain alleviates the need for traditional hip surgery.
Debilitating hip pain can be difficult to deal with on a day-to-day basis and, if not corrected, traditionally requires long-term pain management. Hip surgery, hip replacement surgery, and hip resurfacing are often the only medical options for patients dealing with debilitating hip pain. Stem cell therapy for hip pain offers patients an alternative to these invasive surgeries, which are not only painful but also require extensive rehabilitation and recovery.
As a leading specialist of stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine, Dr. Santos utilizes several stem cell and blood platelet procedures that offer patients who are considering elective surgeries a non-surgical treatment option to resolve their hip pain. By harvesting a patient’s own stem cells and concentrating them for injection into the ailing area of the hip, our stem cell procedures help to alleviate hip pain and improve the body’s ability to heal itself naturally.
The most common cause of hip pain is hip arthritis, a form of degenerative joint disease that affects millions of Americans. Until recently, treatment options were limited to steroid injections and hip replacement surgery. While effective, steroids damage local tissues over time and hip replacement surgeries carry a fair amount of risk and extensive recovery time.
Stem cell therapy treatments for hip pain offer patients a viable alternative to steroid treatments and hip replacement surgeries.
Using an innovative, degenerative hip disease stromal vascular fraction (SVF) deployment protocol, Dr. Santos can maximize the anti-inflammatory and healing effects of SVF, which is rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors, to reduce hip pain, improve hip joint function, and eliminate the need for steroid injections and hip surgery.
After personally evaluating each patient, Dr. Santos assesses their condition and develops a customized treatment plan. Stem cells are harvested from the patient and prepared for injection, using a propriety treatment method to yield the highest concentration of stem cells and platelet rich plasma (PRP). The stem cell and SVF concentration is then injected, under local anesthesia, using fluoroscopic guidance to ensure that the injection is precisely targeted to the damaged joint.
Our stem cell injections for hip pain are completed as in office outpatient procedures; stem cells and SVF are harvested, concentrated, and injected in a single appointment. The procedure takes approximately 3 hours and patients experience little to no down time; patients are encouraged to walk the same day.
