Stem Cell Treatment for Orthopedic

Orthopedic problems are disorders linking to the musculoskeletal system. They might involve the bones, muscles, cartilages, connective tissues or joints. Orthopedic problems might be pathological like fracture, dislocation and tumors; degenerative like osteoarthritis, osteoporosis or inflammatory autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, gout, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Long term joint pain, muscle or tendon pain can be exasperating. These pains lead to some of the most common musculoskeletal complications and they can be because of strains, sprains and overuse. The pain is most common on shoulders, back, knees, hip and ankles. It might be a worthy idea to seek medical support when the pain takes a bit longer to subside so you can decrease the chances of it developing into a more serious issue.

Orthopedic stem cell treatment deals with anything that is concerned with muscles, ligaments and joints via stem cells. Any disorders that affect these three portions of the body involve an orthopedic surgeon. Some of these ailments include injuries and sicknesses of the knee, dislocated shoulders, torn cartilages or foot pain.

Symptoms of arthritis may range from mild to severe. Some of them are:

  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Muscle weakness
  • Inflammation
  • Malformed joints
  • Abridged range of motion and loss of use of the joint
  • Cracking and creaking
  • Sleep glitches

The symptoms of orthopedic disorders may vary greatly from patient to patient. In spite of the vivid degeneration of the joints apparent on x-rays, some individuals might have very few symptoms. Symptoms can also be irregular. It is not uncommon for patients suffering from disorder of the hands and knees to have years of pain-free intervals between symptoms.

The recommend treatment of these disorders is based on your symptoms and by doing a physical exam. The tests include:

  • A joint fluid study
  • X-rays
  • An arthroscopy

Other tests might take account of a urine test and one or more blood tests, such as:

  • Complete blood count (CBC).
  • Rheumatoid factor (RF).
  • C-reactive protein (CRP).
  • Sedimentation rate (sed rate).
  • Antinuclear antibody (ANA).

Stem cell therapy is a non-surgical measure used to lessen pain and improve function. Called regenerative medicine, the use of stem cells has proven advantageous for several orthopedic conditions, such as ligament, tendon and cartilage injuries. Orthopedic disorders treated with stem cells include partial tears of the:

  • Knee Stem Cell Procedures
  • Hip Stem Cell Procedures
  • Shoulder Stem Cell Procedures
  • Spine Stem Cell Procedures
  • Elbow Stem Cell Procedures
  • Hand / Wrist Stem Cell Procedures
  • Foot / Ankle Stem Cell Procedures
  • Non-Union Fractures Treatment
  • Osteoarthritis

Knee stem cell procedure

If you have bumped into an injury to the knee meniscus, cartilage, ACL or MCL ligaments, or have protracted knee pain because of a past injury or arthritis, you might be a good contender for knee stem cell therapy. Mesenchymal stem cells are cells from your own body that can refurbish themselves and turn into other cells (segregate). They live inside all of us in numerous tissues, controlled to leap into action to repair any impairment as it befalls. As we age or have big injuries, we might not be able to recruit sufficient of these cells to the site to completely repair the region. Our stem cell procedures help overcome this issue by extracting stem cells from a region of high volume, then concentrating the cells and reinjecting them into the impaired zone to help the body heal naturally.

Shoulder stem cell procedure

If you have encountered a rotator cuff tear, or experience pain linked to shoulder arthritis, tendonitis, tendenosis, or bursitis, you might be a worthy contender for a shoulder stem cell treatment. Shoulder surgery is principally challenging owing to the complexity of the joint. Post-surgical retrieval can be painful, necessitating a prolonged rehab period to reestablish strength and flexibility to the shoulder. As a substitute to shoulder surgery, our stem cell treatment might help assuage shoulder pain and restore joint impairment with a non-invasive injection process. Patients usually experience little or no downtime from the procedure. Our stem cell procedures help overcome this issue by extracting stem cells from an expanse of high volume, then concentrating the cells and reinjecting them into the impaired area to aid the body heal naturally.

Hip stem procedure

Stem Cell Care India stem cell procedures offer a non-surgical treatment choice for countless patients who are considering elective surgeries to resolve their hip pain. We might help heal and assuage hip complications with a same-day injection process by intensifying the concentration of an individual’s own stem cells in the problematic zone, improving the body’s aptitude to heal itself naturally. Mesenchymal stem cells are cells from your own body that can renovate themselves and turn into other cells (segregate). They live inside all of us in different tissues, composed to leap into action to repair mutilation as it occurs. As we age or have gigantic injuries, we might not be able to recruit ample of these cells to the site to abundantly repair the region. Our stem cell procedures help overcome this problem by mining stem cells from an region of high volume, then concentrating the cells and reinjecting them into the impaired part to help the body heal naturally. Our patented procedures can be used for a catholic array of conditions and are the tool of choice for injuries, arthritis and other disorders that might be more significant than what may be treated with our other procedures.

Spine stem cell procedure

The origin of spine pain is frequently misidentified. Our decade of experience in regenerative treatments for spine pain permits us to address as many factors as conceivable to gain vision into the true reason of the problem. We classify the most possible sources of pain and choose the most apt treatment options available. Only then can the natural healing procedure be initiated using the safest, least invasive process possible. By cautiously targeting the right process to the impacted parts of the spine, patients can evade spinal fusion surgery or recurrent high dose steroid epidural injections and their linked side-effects.

Elbow, hand and wrist stem cell procedure

The non-surgical stem-cell procedures are next generation regenerative inoculation treatments for those who are suffering from pain or decreased range of motion because of basal joint / CMC arthritis, hand arthritis or other injuries and conditions in the hand. Thumb CMC/Basal Joint Arthritis or Arthritis of the hand joints can appear premature in life. The continuous spinning and revolving motions of the basal joint, at the base of the thumb, inclines to wear it out straightforwardly. While total joint reconstruction surgery might improve the condition for some, new glitches in the thumb joint might develop over time, triggering such symptoms as numbness, tenderness or abridged range of motion. The treatment for CMC arthritis and other injuries and conditions in the hand joints and wrist, uses your own stem cells, blood platelets and/or growth factors to help overhaul damaged zones that are causing pain.

Foot/ankle stem cell procedure

Present surgical treatment options for common injuries and arthritis, include ankle arthroscopy to “clean up” impaired cartilage, fusion of ankle bones where cartilage has been misplaced, and tendon grafts screwed in place to reinforce loose connections between bones. All are agonizing and might not be effective in due course. These surgeries normally encompass a painful post-surgical retrieval with a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility to the ankle. Adult stem cells are cells from your own body that can renovate themselves and turn out to be other cells (segregate). They live inside all of us in numerous tissues, poised to leap into action to overhaul impairment as it occurs. As we age or have giant injuries, we might not be able to get enough of these cells to the site to fully overhaul the area. Our stem cell procedures help overcome this issue by removing stem cells from a zone of high volume, then concentrating the cells and re-injecting them into the impaired region to help the body heal naturally.

Non-union fractures treatment

The process works without surgery by significantly increasing the concentration of an individual’s own stem cells in the non-healing fracture region, which boosts the bone’s own aptitude to heal itself naturally. Customary options for the treatment of non-union fractures normally encompasses surgery, which can be excruciating and necessitate months of rehab, with no assurances of success. As a substitute of surgery, our stem cell procedure patients normally experience little to no downtime from the process. Maximum bone fractures heal without difficulty. However, fractures that validate motion of the bony ends with imperfect healing more than 6 months after injury are called non-union fractures. If you are suffering from a fracture that is not healing appropriately, you might be an aspirant for this procedure.

Osteoarthritis stem cell process

During stage 1 of this procedure, a patient’s own stem cells are extracted and harvested. Using a proprietary lab technique, the cell biologists then grow these cells in a contemporary facility. Typically, a patient’s cells grow to 100-1,000 times more than what was initially harvested, and if there are extra stem cells, they can be conserved for future use. The re-injection cycle usually takes place 4 – 6 weeks after your bone marrow aspiration (BMA). During this time, your cells are developed for approximately 10 days and then verified for quality assurance, including sterility testing and karyotype analysis to ensure there are no genetic aberrations present in your stem cells. Once your cells have passed all safety and quality testing, you will be communicated with your outcomes and invited to schedule the re-injection cycle. During part 2 of the process, the cultured cells are comprehensively tested for quality assurance and re-injected, using guided imaging, to make sure the maximum precise placement of cells into the incapacitated region.

Stem cell processing technique

Umbilical cord collection and preliminary testings

It is a common practice in India for mommies to voluntarily donate the umbilical cord blood from the birth of their fit full-term kids. Every mom who enters a hospital in India to give birth is spontaneously tested for all main sicknesses. Comprehensive family histories are also taken from each mother before donation. Only females who have been fully screened and found to be totally healthy are allowable to donate their umbilical cord and umbilical cord blood.

Second round of testing

The second step in the screening procedure happens in laboratory once the collected samples have been verified negatively for communicable ailments; it is then transported to our laboratories and officially becomes the property. From this phase, it is mandatory for each and every sample to be processed and provided to patients. The gathered sample starts a second round of testing and while following donor’s prerequisite also carries out testing for cytomegalovirus, micro-organisms (aerobic bacteria, anaerobic bacteria, fungi, etc.), survival rate, stem cell surface indicators and stem cell biological characteristics (colony forming aptitude, differential capability) in each step to safeguard the highest quality to its cell products.

Culturing

The stem cells derived from each umbilical cord are sowed into a flask filled with culture medium. This medium does not have any animal products (such as fetal calf serum) but it is heightened with cell growth factors. The flasks are positioned in a sterilized, temperature and humidity controlled incubator. The stem cells are lengthened in the culture medium. Once the culturing is done, the culture mediums are splashed away and are harvested.

Storage

The cell products are then cryo-preserved and stored at a consistent -196 degree Celsius temperature with automatic supplement of liquid nitrogen using the exceedingly advanced Thermogenesis BioArchive system. This technology permits for integrated control rate of freezing that absolutely avoids unexpected drops in temperature. Our cryo-preservation storage equipment is also fortified with 24h real-time control system and in any situation of power-failure or other emergency; a redundant fail-safe power supply guarantees that normal operation is implemented. Our vacuum protection system can uphold appropriate temperature for 20 days without supplement of liquid nitrogen.

Packing and transport

All consignments of stem cells undergo final testing. During this procedure, they are also tested for quantity and quality. Once the stem cells are reckoned safe, each unit is positioned into either a sterile vial or a sterile IV bag for future transplantation. All merchandises are separately cataloged and traced while in transit. Our cell transplants come to pass two to three days a week. All of our cells are processed on an as-needed basis. All of our cell products are treated and kept fresh, giving us the highest stem cell sustainability count and the maximum effectiveness.

Stem cell procedure

The doctors in our affiliated hospitals use several injection procedures to deliver stem cells. Contingent on each patient’s particular condition, one or multiple approaches of delivery will be used during a standard treatment sitting so as to maximize safety and effectiveness. It is imperative to remember that Stem Cell Care India protocols always highlight safety first and the injections approaches provided are slightly invasive but still a very concentrated on delivering the stem cells as close as possible from the injury location.

1. Is a Stem Cell Procedure the same as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?

No. PRP is concentrating platelets in the blood, not stem cell therapy.

2. Do mesenchymal cells stay localized to the injection site? Is there any risk of them traveling throughout the body?

MSC’s do stay localized to the injection place across multiple studies. This is likely related to the fact that they usually do not flow in the blood stream like other adult stem cell types and are chiefly found resident in the tissues they serve.

3. What complications have been confronted with the procedures?

Using the pertinent guidelines for complications reporting, our complications till date have been in the mild to moderate grouping and rare. This means that either the complication (like brief swelling) required no medical treatment (mild), or if it did necessitate medical treatment, the treatment was simple (moderate-like a patient who failed the process who eventually decided to get the knee replacement that he or she was planning before the process).

4. Why can’t I be on certain medicines during the procedure?

Certain sorts of medicines will negatively sway the stem cells. Furthermore, we usually see that many prescription medicines will lessen stem cell number.

5. How painful is the process for implanting stem cells?

It is somewhat as painful as a typical shot in a doctor’s clinic.

6. When can I expect to feel better and see the results?

The results should become obvious over 1-3 months, but at times can take as long as 6-9 months.

7. When can I return to normal activity?

This depends on the kind of procedure. However, all of our techniques are designed to promote as much early activity as possible.
