“Stem cell research can revolutionize medicine more than anything since the antibiotic.”
At the forefront in healthcare is the science of Stem Cell Therapy. Delivering safe and effective results without drugs or surgery is the most exciting trend in all of medicine. Known as the greatest advancement since penicillin, stem cells are offering a window of opportunity for doctors to help patients get off prescription medications and avoid surgeries.
In regenerative medicine, stem cells are cells that can promote rejuvenation, repair, and regeneration in the body. Stem cells have been shown to possess remarkable healing properties for a variety of ailments because of their ability to send signals to injured cells to grow and heal. It is important to understand that these cells create a progressive response and are not a “quick-fix” pain reliever. Working with a trusted doctor who has experience in the field of regenerative and functional medicine will deliver greater, long-term results versus a “minute-clinic.” As always, each person must be evaluated and properly diagnosed by a physician before any type of treatment is performed.
Fat – Adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADMSC) are of the highest number in the body. Under local anesthesia, a small amount of fat is taken from the abdomen or love handle area. The tissue is taken to the lab, minimally processed, and then ready to be used for treatment.
Bone Marrow – BMAC is a rich source of hematopoietic stem cells. These cells are obtained from the iliac crest (Hip) and minimally processed. For older patients, we typically advise using another source due to the low number of stem cells.
Exosomes – Small particles within stem cells containing growth factors, mRNA, microRNA, and many other important healing signals. These are not cells, but rather the crucial components of stem cells that, when released promote controlled healing and repair.
The expertise of injecting takes years of practice and training. Stem Cells, Exosomes, and PRP are all incredibly powerful treatments in healing without drugs or surgery. Dr. Steven Sorr is meticulous at placing the regenerative medicine solution directly to the damaged ligament, tendon, or joint. An important and unique difference in this technique is the comprehensive nature of treatment; one single injection is rarely ever effective.
US-guided injections are excellent for treating meniscus tears, rotator cuff tear, labral tears, and tendonitis. In addition, nerve hydrodissection can be done alongside the treatment of a tear or arthritis to help control pain and liberate any adhesions that restrict normal anatomy and physiology.
Pain is a debilitating condition and we know that getting you out of pain is a top priority! However, pain is a side-effect of a deeper problem, and that is what stem cells are there to do – heal. Does stem cell therapy for pain, absolutely it does!
The healing process typically takes 3-6 months so along with that timeline, our RegenFx Program delivers a comprehensive, holistic approach to stem cell therapy. There is always hope when you meet our expert physician, Dr. Steven Sorr. You will receive a very educational experience and be guided every step of the way.
Cortisone is a steroid injection used to turn off pain and inflammation. This is also known as “The Stress Hormone,” yet people line up to get on the merry-go-round for pain management injections daily.
This is pure insanity! Studies have shown that repeated cortisone shots/epidural injections cause further damage and degeneration to the body. In fact, you are not allowed to receive more than 3 per year into a joint.
Those who do this repeatedly are on the road to major surgeries like a total joint replacement. And if that is not enough, they interfere with your other hormones, blood sugar balance, and immune suppression.
During your initial discovery session, we’ll listen to your concerns and make sure we are a great fit to help you. We’ll review any recent imaging, labs or other pertinent information. But most importantly, we’ll listen.
