Using Your Body’s Natural Systems to Provide Cell Therapy for Knees
In our practice, one of the most common complaints we see is knee pain. Whether it’s due to injury or degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis, the result is the same – pain, inflammation, and loss of mobility. Pharmaceutical treatment, while common, is not a silver bullet. Medicine often masks symptoms, but doesn’t heal the underlying cause. We know the best treatments are usually those that try to address the root of the problem and encourage the body to heal itself. With volume enhancing medicinal signaling cells therapy, we are able to use your body’s own repair system to treat musculoskeletal conditions. This therapy has proven highly effective in joints subject to chronic pain and injury, especially the knees. Learn how cell therapy for knees could reduce your pain and get you back to doing the activities you love.
BeautiFILL For Adipose Derived Supportive Medicinal Signaling Cell Therapy
In our office, we use BeautiFILL laser assisted liposuction to harvest adipose (fat) tissue from your body. This closed system processes the tissue as well, separating the healthy cells and tissue so they can be transplanted elsewhere. This efficient and gentle system yields over 95% viability, which has previously been impossible with other methods. Healthy signaling cells in the adipose tissue can be injected into the knee joint to stimulate your body’s own repair response and provide supportive volume enhancement.
In addition, anytime we perform adipose medicinal signaling cell grafts, we do PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections. PRP, which is derived from your own blood, is full of natural healing agents and boosts the activation of the stem cells. We harvest PRP from your own body with a simple blood draw. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma, which is re-injected to the site of the medicinal signaling cell graft.
Significant and Long Lasting Improvement
Undergoing tissue engineering with cushioning medicinal signaling cells has been shown to reduce pain, improve mobility, and increase function. Ideally we will see some natural healthy tissue growth with time. Typically results become evident about 3 weeks after treatment. However, we continue to work with you for follow ups, nutrition counseling, and physical therapy for 6 months to get the maximum benefits.
For many, medicinal signaling cell therapy can be an alternative to surgical options for degenerative joint disease. In regenerative medicine, Using the Beautifill system to harvest cells from your own adipose tissue, is truly cutting edge. We have been able to achieve great outcomes without the use of artificial fillers, donor products, or medication.
