Stem Cells for Arthritis Q & A

The Sports Medicine and Regenerative Therapeutics Institute

What is Osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that is commonly associated with aging, but it can also develop after a traumatic injury or at any age due to genetics. The classic sign of arthritis is aching joints that swell and stiffen as a result of a gradual deterioration of cartilage, the tissue that cushions your joint.

If left untreated, arthritis pain can become disabling.

Does Surgery Help with Arthritis?

Some people suffer from a complete loss of cartilage inside the joint, warranting joint replacement surgery. But it doesn’t have to come to that. At the SMaRT Institute, Dr. Vogt and Dr. Hunnius use stem cell and blood platelet procedures to offer relief from arthritis pain without traditional, invasive surgery.

With the innovative stem cell surgery for arthritis at the SMaRT Institute, Dr. Vogt and Dr. Hunnius use your body’s stem cells to enhance healing and promote tissue regeneration.

After harvesting your stem cells (typically from either your bone marrow or fat tissue), they purify these specialized cells then reinject them right where you need them. That gives your body exactly what it needs to heal and restore joint function.

What are the Benefits of Stem Cell Treatments for Arthritis?

When you see Dr. Vogt or Dr. Hunnius for stem cell treatments, you can reap a variety of benefits. They do these treatments right at the SMaRT Institute and require virtually no downtime.

Because stem cell treatments for arthritis accelerate the regeneration of healthy cartilage tissue inside your joint, you get long-lasting relief and a reduction in pain, swelling, and stiffness. These treatments can delay, or maybe even eliminate, the need for a joint replacement.

Traditional medical approaches to arthritis recommend:

  • Anti-inflammatory medicine
  • Physical therapy
  • Bracing
  • Viscoelastic supplements
  • Corticosteroid shots

If you’ve tried these remedies without seeing the improvement you need, consider stem cell therapy before resorting to traditional joint replacement surgery.

Not everyone is a candidate for stem cell treatment of arthritis, so be sure to consult with an expert in regenerative medicine.

Call any of the esteemed orthopedic physicians at the SMaRT Institute and schedule an evaluation of your arthritic joints to determine if stem cell therapy is right for you. You can even book your initial consultation online now.
