Fort Lauderdale Stem Cell Surgery
Individuals who live in or around the Fort Lauderdale area may be pleased to know that stem cell surgery is now available to them. This is in thanks to The Institute of Regenerative Medicine located in Boca Raton, Florida. Stem cell surgery is a treatment procedure that involves the use of the patient’s own stem cells, which are taken from their pelvic bone, processed and injected into damaged tissue. This treatment, headed by Dr. Purita, a renowned orthopedic surgeon, helps stimulate the healing process that often is arrested due to poor blood flow and reduced oxygenation of the damaged tissue.
Stem cells are the repair cells of the body. When tissue becomes damaged due to trauma, diseases or disorders, blood supply can become blocked, preventing these needed stem cells from reaching the damaged tissue, thus preventing proper healing. Oftentimes when this happens, the body does not recognize the injury. Damaged tissue can be partially cut off from needed oxygen and from sending signals to the body for increased blood supply that carries the stem cells to the injury site. With the use of stem cell surgery, these important repair cells are placed directly into the damaged tissue. This causes tissue to begin healing, reducing pain and returning function to the impaired body part.
Fort Lauderdale stem cell surgery is available for treating a wide variety of orthopedic conditions. These include rotator cuff injuries, joint damage caused by arthritis, tennis elbow, ligament sprains, hamstring strains, calf pain, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fascitis, numerous knee problems and more. Electing to have this form of orthopedic treatment can be a good alternative for those who are perhaps considering surgery due to continued pain after traditional methods have been exhausted as well as for conditions that are healing much slower than normal. Although stem cell surgery does take time for full healing, most individuals experience significant improvements within 2 to 3 months after starting the treatment. This form of surgery also prevents the need for invasive surgery that usually requires incisions that leave behind serious scarring. With stem cell orthopedic surgery, scarring is minimal. It also is less expensive than traditional surgery and with stem cells being injected directly into damaged tissue, additional degeneration of the treated tissue is prevented.
