WHAT IS A STEM CELL PROCEDURE?
A regenerative cell procedure harnesses and amplifies the body's natural mechanism for healing (and anti-inflammation). This mechanism uses adult autologous stem cells derived from your own bone marrow.
In the procedure, the physician will aspirate bone marrow from your hip, concentrate, then apply the concentrate to the injury site of the knee. In all, the process takes less than 45 minutes.
Because your therapy will utilize a concentrated preparation of your own cells, the procedure is considered "autologous point-of-care". The procedure is fast, and in most cases can be completed with moderate sedation.
