Stem cell treatment is designed to target these areas within the joints to help with the creation of new cartilage cells. As mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent they have the ability to differentiate into cartilage called (chondrytes). The goal of each stem cell treatment is to inject the stem cells into the joint to create cartilage (chondryte cells). Stem cells are also natural anti-inflammatories which can assist with osteoarthritis pain and swelling in the joint area. Stem cell therapy is an intervention strategy that introduces new adult stem cells into damaged tissue in order to treat disease or injury. Researchers believe that stem cell treatments have the potential to change the face of human disease and alleviate suffering. The ability of stem cells to self-renew and give rise to subsequent generations with variable degrees of differentiation capacities, offers significant potential for generation of tissues that can potentially replace diseases and damaged areas in the body, with minimal risk of rejection.
How can stem cell help?
Presently the treatment of the osteoarthritis is very limited and the management of the pain is based on steroidal and non steroidal pain killers or orthopaedic transplants.
The stem cell based treatment is based on the natural way the tissues and organs are repaired by the body. The stem cells can multiply and also differentiate in to various types of cells making the joints i.e. bone, cartilage, tendons and other tissues.
The stem cell treatment involves extraction of stem cells from Patients own bone marrow for re-implantation thus making the treatment safe and without side effects.
⇒ Simple but very effective.
⇒ Nature’s own way repairing broken cells and tissues.
⇒ Low or no risk of tumours or other side effects.
⇒ Bone marrow derived mesenchyme stem cells are capable of creating all the cells making joints
⇒ Lower overall risk of treatment.
