"Stem cell" Therapy:


A bone marrow aspiration is sometimes referred to as stem cell therapy.  What this treatment actually does is take bone marrow from your body and separate the small layer that includes the majority of platelets, growth factors, and mesenchymal stem cells.  These mesenchymal stem cells are special as they have the ability to grow into a variety of tissues such as cartilage, bone, tendon, and others.


Main Indications:


Mild-Moderate osteoarthritis of the knee

Rotator cuff repair augmentation

Allograft augmentation 

Mensical repair augmentation

Augmenting bone allograft in the treatment of nonunion
