How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?

Stem cell therapy harnesses your body’s innate ability to repair itself.

Stem cells are naturally occurring cells that aid in the healing process because they can regenerate and differentiate into specialized cells as your body needs. With stem cell therapy, your own stem cells are used to stimulate the healing process, allowing your hips to efficiently recover from pain or injury. Healthy stem cells are captured from an uninjured area of your body by syringe in a simple, quick and relatively painless procedure. Their benefits are then maximized using innovative technology that concentrates the stem cells before they are injected into your hips.

Once they are injected, the concentrated stem cells encourage the regeneration of additional healthy cells, enhancing your body’s ability to heal itself.

Regenerative Medicine versus Conventional Therapy

Two of the most common forms of conventional hip therapy are surgery and joint replacement. Both treatments come with their own risks, including the possibility of joint failure. If your hip replacement implant fails, you could require a second, more complicated joint replacement surgery to replace the failed implant. Furthermore, surgery requires a referral from a doctor and must be carried out in a hospital, often leading to lengthy waiting periods. During the time that you wait for your surgery, you’re not only kept from the activities you love, you’re potentially causing even more damage to the hip joint.

Regenerative medicine, including stem cell therapy, does not require a referral from a doctor and can be carried out at the doctor’s office, meaning it’s typically completed much quicker than surgery. Appointment lengths vary, but some treatments take as little as 30 minutes from start to finish. You’re also foregoing the risks associated with surgery and, in most cases, significantly shortening your recovery time compared to what it would be after an operation.

In most cases, once you begin to feel better, there’s no need to wait for doctor approval to resume regular activity.
