Fact vs. Fiction
The use of stem cell therapy to treat osteoarthritis continues to grow, as does the field of research that supports this treatment. There are, however, some persistent myths about the treatment that we continue to refute. They include:
- Stem cells are harvested from aborted fetuses. This is simply not true. At Stem Cell Arts, we use your body’s own stem cells to speed up your body’s capacity for healing itself.
- If you are past a certain age, your stem cells are too old to be used. Again, this is false. If you are still living and breathing, you have proof that your stem cells are working fine. In fact, the registry data that we have collected since 2005 shows no fall off in stem cell efficacy when used for orthopedic treatments as you age.
- Every practice that offers stem cell therapy is trained in its use. That’s like saying major leaguers and little leaguers all know how to catch a fly ball. Although they may know what they are supposed to do, it doesn’t mean they do it well or with the same level of experience and skill.
That is the Stem Cell Arts difference. Our physicians are board-certified pain medicine specialists who are trained and licensed to perform the Regenexx® Family of Stem Cell and Platelet procedures. They have been performing stem cell and platelet rich plasma therapies for more than 10 years. They offer unparalleled expertise and remain unrivaled in research presentations, publications, and academic achievements.
Unfortunately, many other practitioners claiming to be specialists in stem cell therapy have done nothing more than attending a weekend training session.
When it comes to stem cell therapy, experience matters. Don’t fall for a quick sales job. Do your homework and you will quickly discover that Stem Cell Arts, an affiliate of National Spine & Pain Centers, is a big leaguer when it comes to safe, effective and experienced treatment of orthopedic conditions using advanced stem cell therapies.
