What is Regenerative Stem Cell Therapies
Stem cells are the most basic cells living in the human body. They have the ability to become many types of cells, from skin cells to muscle, from bone to cartilage. One of the stem cells we use is derived from amniotic tissue, specifically from the Wharton’s Jelly layer of a donated umbilical cord. Wharton’s Jelly is a gel-like tissue that insulates and protects the umbilical arteries and vein, containing a high concentration of growth factors. Stem cell therapy as one of our orthopedic specialties may be an excellent alternative to surgery. It also has excellent results in helping to heal degenerative tendon injuries and tendonitis.

If you suffer from joint pain, this might be of interest to you. Prolozone is an amazing solution for treating joint pain. This injection therapy is based on the science that as we age, our joints lose nutrition and oxygen resulting in joints that are stiff, sore and prone to injury. Rather than turning to rehabilitation or surgery, this natural, non-surgical regenerative approach is made up of two parts.
The first part of the treatment adds nutrition back into the injured area (vertebra, ligament, tendon, muscle, connective tissue or joint area). The second part of the treatment incorporates ozone, helping nutrition to properly fuel the injured area. The result of these two steps are the proliferation, regeneration and rebuilding of new ligament and cartilage tissue.

Tendon regeneration has been clinically proven to improve tendonitis in the elbow, shoulder, knee and foot, reducing pain and improving functionality. More importantly, it can accomplish this without surgery.
We have selected to use Tenex Health TX® for tendon regeneration treatments. They developed their technology with the MAYO clinic to eliminate pain caused by damaged tissue.
