A relatively new therapeutic treatment our physicians offer are stem cell injections. Stem cells are unique due to their undifferentiated nature and ability to help grow new, healthy tissue in injured areas. For patients who have arthritic, muscle or tendon pain, stem cell injections may be a good treatment option.
AOS utilizes donor stem cells, as they have shown promise for a higher rate of potential to regenerate tissue. These are considered regenerative injections and can be used for certain bone, tendon and muscle related injuries. During an examination from one of our providers, we will discuss your particular injury and whether you might be a good candidate for stem cell injections.
