Stem Cell Treatment for Osteoarthritis (OA) and Degenerative Joint Disease

Global clinical research using stem cell therapy has grown dramatically in the last few years. Researchers are uncovering new ways to apply stem cell therapy for people affected by chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis.

Stem cells are a type of undifferentiated cell that are able to differentiate into specialized cell types. Stem cells can be guided into becoming a specific type of cell allowing physicians trained in the field of regenerative medicine to use stem cells to repair diseased or damage tissue.

About Stem Cells

A stem cell transplant can reduce the symptoms of OA including: improve range of motion, reduce inflammation, reduce stiffness, and potentially delay or eliminate the need for surgery; allowing patients to fully engage in the activities they enjoy.

Stem cell therapy may help patients suffering with osteoarthritis that; are not responding adequately to standard drug treatment, cannot tolerate their current recommended treatment, are newly diagnosed, would like to try stem cell therapy before initiating drug treatment, or would like to avoid the risk, pain, and lengthy recovery of surgery.

Stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive alternative for patients facing painful surgery and a lengthy recovery.

About Arthritis

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease, associated with aging, that affects mainly the articular cartilage and is caused by chronic wear and tear, or injury to the cartilage. Osteoarthritis can occur in one joint or multiple joints and most commonly occurs in the knees, hips, fingers and lower spine region.

Stem cell therapy can help alleviate the common symptoms of arthritis including:

  • Severe Pain in joints
  • Swelling of joints
  • Stiffness or decreased range of motion
  • Redness
