The Miracle Of Stem Cells?  

Stem cells have the potential to develop into many different types of cells in the body  

They serve as a repair system for the body 

MSC’s or Mesenchymal Stem Cells have the ability to sense areas of damage and then  rebuild the area by copying or replicating the damaged cells . . . 

 and thus repair the damage 

What is stem cell therapy?

Recently there has been growing interest in the utilization of stem cells for orthopedic pain management. Advancements in stem cell therapy have been noted for the past few years and Stem Cell Therapy has shown promising results in the management of neuropathic (neuropathy), back pain (herniated and bulging discs), osteoarthritis, joint, tendon, and musculoskeletal pain. The concept of stem cells arises from multipotent cells known as Mesenchymal Stem Cells or MSCs (cells that can copy and heal damaged tissue of any type) which have the ability to differentiate into different cell types and possess auto-regeneration capacity according to the body’s needs. These cells can be readily accessed painlessly and safely extracted from tissues in the body including the bone marrow, adipose tissue, and the lining of joints or ‘synovium”.  Additionally, stem cells from the placental cells of healthy newborns' discarded placental lining  (not for embryos) are now being successfully utilized with promising results as well.  

How your stem cells can help: 

Stem cells are where specialized functions are generated. Stem cells reproduce to form new cells. The new cells can either self-renew into stem cells or become specialized cells with a specific function, such as blood cells, brain cells, heart muscle cells,  bone cells, cartilage cells, etc… No other cell in the body has this natural ability to generate new cell types. 

In the case of damaging arthritis, nerve damage, and muscle damage, we theorize that the new stem cells we implant in the area will kick start new cell growth and help repair other damaged cells in the area. 

Stem cells also have the unique ability to adjust the immune system by shutting down pathological response while maintaining the cells’ ability to fight off disease. This is also why stem cells are safe to move from one part of the body to another without high risk of infection. 

Additionally, stem cells play a key role in preserving and replenishing cells throughout your lifetime. Symptoms of inflammation are diminished, injured cells are protected, and other cells are stimulated to regenerate. NYC Pain MD doctors believe this should help not only with pain and immobility but to slow down further damage. 

The implanted new stem cells may also support and stimulate repair/regrowth of the lubricant producing cells known as Synoviocytes thus further assisting with damaged cells, protection and overall function of a joint being treated. 

Which Conditions Can Stem Cells Help? 

The following have been shown to be responsive to stem cell treatment: 

  • Osteoarthritis 
  • Disc Related Back Pain 
  • Various forms of Neuropathy including diabetic-related nerve pain 
  • Muscle injuries 
  • Tendon conditions including torn meniscus, rotator cuff 


Where are stem cells accessed from a patient and how are they prepared?

  1. Bone Marrow usually from the iliac crest of the hip area
  2. Body fat from the abdomen (most common) or the buttock area 

For those that are not good candidates for the above technique or would like to avoid the stem cell prep, Placental Cells harvested by special technique and preserved from healthy infants' placental tissue have been showing good results as well.  

This procedure takes about 45 minutes to 90 minutes. 

How are the stem cells implanted into the damaged area being treated? 

There is no need to go under anesthesia, no hospital or surgical center.  The procedure is conveniently done using an in-office setting. It is generally easy, user-friendly, and convenient. The cells are implanted via a virtually painless injection technique which MUST BE DONE UNDER PRECISE FLUOROSOCPIC IMAGING. (see below) 

Ultra-targeted focused delivery of the cells must be addressed or results WILL be sub-par or fail. 

Stem cell therapy for regeneration and pain relief involves extracting, processing, and injecting stem cells precisely into the affected area to promote tissue repair and regeneration. The stem cells release growth factors and other signaling molecules that help reduce inflammation, stimulate the formation of new blood vessels, and promote healing, 


Can stem cell therapy help avoid surgery? 

With every invasive surgery but not in stem cell therapy, there is the risk of serious health complications during and after the surgical procedures. This includes anesthesia risk, infection risk, risk of blood clots/cardiovascular risk, and uncertain surgical outcomes among others.   After surgery, you may be required to engage in extensive and often grueling physiotherapy sessions for several months to help regain your mobility. Surgery can involve extensive repairs or removal of the tissue of the joint and replacing it with an implant. This invasiveness into the body can is never simple and never risk–free. 

Stem cell therapy can help your body regenerate healthy cells through injections with less physical risk and trauma resulting in greater mobility after treatment, fast easy recovery . . .  not to mention at a fraction of the cost. 

Of course, surgery can be necessary in certain cases.  But for some, in fact,  it is reasonable to explore stem cell treatment in some cases before submitting to surgery or joint replacement.   

In addition, acute injuries such as partial ligament and tendon tears can also be treated.  Stem cells can often improve function and reduce pain in patients with chronic and severe osteoarthritis (OA).  

Which conditions may respond to Stem Cell treatment? 

  • Shoulder Pain 
  • Hip Pain 
  • Knee Pain 
  • Ankle Pain 
  • Joint Instability 
  • Back Pain 
  • Neck Pain 
  • Neuropathy 
  • Herniated Disc 
  • Bulging Disc 
  • Sciatica 
  • Muscle Damage 

What is the age limit for stem cell therapy? 

There isn't a hard age cutoff, but after about the age of 70 or 75, most of the research would suggest that you may not have a large enough amount of stem cells or certainly not good “quality” or potent stem cells.  However, older patients may benefit from procedures with Placental-Derived stem cells which come from healthy infant placental cells and undergo special preparation to be utilized for Stem Cell Therapy
