Stem Cell Treatments in Atlanta

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

drsyringeUsing stem cells for medical treatment isn't a thing of the future -- it's something that we're already using at Ortho Sport & Spine in Atlanta. The state-of-the-art technology and proven success of stem cell techniques allow us to successfully manage conditions like:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendon damage
  • Torn muscles
  • Meniscal tears
  • Damage to rotator cuffs

Your body uses stem cells to grow and repair tissues where damage has occurred. For example, if the joint is degenerating because of osteoarthritis, the platelets would help to reverse excessive bone loss to reduce symptoms of the condition in the joint. This is what makes them so successful when used for spinal treatments.

Biologically, stem cells can replicate and become specialized as it pertains to specific areas of the body. Most of the time, they are harvested from umbilical cords or a person's own bone marrow. They've been used in managing everything from leukemia to macular degeneration and even repairing the heart following a cardiovascular attack.

At Ortho Sport & Spine, our expert physicians can talk with you about what the process involves, what to expect, and if the therapy is appropriate for your particular condition. 

What About PRP? 

Our Atlanta physicians sometimes recommend platelet rich plasma, or PRP in addition to stem cell treatments. When PRP is directly injected into the area where damage has occurred, it aids the body's ability to repair itself -- offering even greater success compared to surgery without PRP treatments. The platelets essentially "kick start" your body's natural healing capabilities, shortening recovery times and optimizing the results of the procedure.

Call Ortho Sport & Spine today to schedule a consultation with one of our spine experts in Atlanta.

Gratefulness

During the month of November, it’s a good time to reflect upon all that we’re grateful for. At Ortho Sport & Spine, we have a long list of all that we’re thankful for.

Are Your Ready For Your Cooler Workouts

November ushers in a season marked by gratefulness and cooler temperatures. At Ortho Sport & Spine, we’re grateful for the cooler temperatures. Georgia summers can actually be somewhat prohibitive for being active outside. The high temperatures and humidity often make playing, exercising and journeying outside unfavorable.
