Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What are stem cells?

Adult stem cells live throughout your body, where they have the unique job of regenerating new tissues. During your lifetime, stem cells continuously self-replicate, a process that preserves a blank stem cell while creating a new cell that can develop into several different cell types, depending on where they’re found in your body.

For example, adult stem cells in your skin regenerate the tissues that keep your skin and hair follicles healthy. Hematopoietic stem cells live in your bloodstream and bone marrow, producing new platelets, red and white blood cells, and immune cells.

Another type, called mesenchymal stem cells, regenerates all the cells needed for orthopedic care, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bones.

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a treatment containing concentrated stem cells. Your Stem Cell Center of Texas provider takes the stem cells from your body, processes them to remove unwanted cells in the tissue sample, and then creates your treatment by concentrating the healthy stem cells.

Your provider may inject the stem cells into your joints or other damaged tissues like tendons and ligaments. Or they may infuse the cells intravenously by placing a needle into your arm vein.

After the stem cells are inside your body, they reach the damaged tissues and do their usual job of self-replicating, regenerating new cells, and healing your body. As you heal, your pain disappears, and you regain mobility and function.

How are stem cells obtained?

In most cases, your provider either uses a hollow needle to reach your hip bone and withdraw a sample of bone marrow or liposuction to withdraw some excess body fat. Your provider does both procedures using a local anesthetic and real-time imaging to see the targeted tissues.

When would I need stem cell therapy?

In addition to healing, stem cell therapy reduces inflammation, making it an effective treatment for many conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendinitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Joint injuries
  • Meniscus tears
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Brain injuries
  • Musculoskeletal injuries

Your provider will recommend stem cell therapy when your body’s natural healing response is sluggish, or your injury affects tissues with a poor blood supply. Without enough blood, damaged tissues won’t receive a sufficient stem cell supply.
