What is Stem Cell Therapy?
The ongoing research into stem cell therapy continues to turn up exciting results. Stem cells have the ability to develop into whatever type of cell is around them, due to a process call ‘cell signaling.’
This means when they’re injected into damaged joints or bones, the stems cells develop into bone tissue or cartilage and can then assist in repairing the damaged bone tissue.
Stem cell therapy, often referred to as stem cell transplant, can be used to replace lost neurons after a spinal cord injury, Alzheimer’s disease, or a stroke. It’s also used to treat blood disorders or immune system disorders.
Stem cell transplant is capable of replacing virtually any tissue or body organ that’s been damaged by injury or disease.
What Does Stem Cell Therapy Cost in Santa Ana, CA?
Stem cell therapy cost is different with every patient. Dr. A. Michael Moheimani spends considerable time with his patients, asking questions that help him determine the best possible course of action to achieve their desired results.
During that initial consultation, he will develop a treatment plan for your specific case and will able to give you a more accurate cost assessment at that time.
Some costs may be absorbed by your insurance company, but you’ll need to check to see which procedure may be covered and how much you’ll be responsible for. We strive to keep all our treatments as affordable as possible and are pleased to offer financing through CareCredit®.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
Stem cell therapy treatments use your own cells that are continuously circulating throughout the body. Large numbers of these cells are found in bone marrow and fat cells and their purpose is to heal the body.
As you age, it can become more difficult for your body to heal certain injuries. Stem cell therapy helps the body with natural healing by injecting your own stem cells directly into the area that needs assistance. Cells are injected into the injured area with the guidance of fluoroscopy or ultrasound.
Stem cells are typically harvested from either the fat cells in the stomach or from bone marrow. The doctor will determine which method is the best for you, based on your diagnosis and unique situation.
What Are the Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells have the ability to regenerate many different types of tissue, including cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and bone. Most patients experience great pain relief and are quite happy with the results of their stem cell transplant. Some of the other benefits of stem cell therapy include:
- Increased function in the injured area
- Significant decrease in pain
- Faster recovery time
- Reduced time away from sports or daily activities
- Long-term results
Am I a Good Candidate for Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy is typically recommended for patients suffering with pain due to moderate osteoarthritis in one or more joints, such as the shoulder, thumb, hip, knee, or ankle. You may also be a good candidate if you have an injury to soft tissue, such as a torn ligament or severe tendinosis.
Whether stem cell therapy is a good option for you is ultimately decided by the doctor, but of course, the decision to have stem cell therapy performed is still yours to make.
