STEM CELL THERAPY
At Scott Medical Center, non-invasive medical procedures are the mainstay of our practice. Using the most up to date techniques, our staff treats patients as whole people, providing a comprehensive diagnostic assessment in order to design a customized strategy for relief from medical concerns. Stem cell research, for example, has advanced to a point that, at Scott Medical Center, stem cell injections as part of our array of treatments, designed to help our patients attain their wellness goals and achieve a higher quality of life.
For instance, until recently, treatment options for people with osteoarthritis of the knee were limited. Steroid injections, joint replacement surgery, and physical therapy were often the only treatment options. Now, stem cell injections for knee osteoarthritis are available, at Scott Medical Center. Stem cell therapy also has applications for treating Achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, and degenerative arthritis.
Stem cell injections work with the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Unlike treatments that simply address the symptoms, stem cell therapy actually promotes repair of the body, restoring degenerated tissue. Stem cell injections also contain hyaluronan, which eases pain and restores mobility by lubricating joints and tendons. This therapy fits well with Scott Medical Center’s integrated approach to wellness, addressing the source of issues, rather than just treating the symptoms.
