Stem Cell Treatment For Ankle & Foot Conditions
Many people who live active lives will often experience foot or ankle injuries that can cause pain with every step they take. For these individuals, the Institute of Regenerative Medicine have developed advanced treatments such as stem cell therapy, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), and Cytokine Therapy to treat numerous foot and ankle conditions without the need of surgery.
Instead of cutting the cutting into a patient and replacing or scraping joints, we use the patient’s own stem cells to repair the damage areas of the foot or ankle naturally. With this technique, patients can avoid several days in the hospital and long recovery periods that can last up to 3 months and may require patients to use crutches or wear a cast during that time. For these reasons and others, hundreds of people have come to the Institute of Regenerative Medicine for our advance stem cell therapy.

How Stem Cells Work To Heal Ankle & Foot Conditions
Stem cells are specialized cells in our body that have the ability to transform into various type of cells such as muscles or cartilage. As we get older, the number of stem cells in our body and their efficiency decreases. As a result, an adult will take longer to heal from minor injuries or may not be able to fix damaged tissues naturally. To overcome the natural degrading of the stem cells, we developed a proprietary technique called MaxxStem to maximize the effectiveness of the patient’s stem cells healing potential. Using this technique, we harvest stem cells from the patient’s blood and fat tissue to capture the different type of stem cells the body produces. Afterward, we create a concentrated dosage with the harvested stem cells and inject it directly into the damaged area of the ankle or foot.
The stem cell treatment is a fast outpatient procedure that occurs within a single day. Patients are often able to return to their normal active lives within a short period and without any pain. To determine if you are a candidate for stem cell therapy, contact our office to have our board certified orthopedic surgeons to evaluate your medical files. If the damage in your foot or ankle is too extensive, then we will recommend surgery. However, we have found stem cell therapy can be used to treat most foot and ankle conditions successfully.
