Mesenchymal stem cells are harvested from the patient’s hip bone, processed and then injected into the painful tissue during the same procedure. These particular cells have regenerative properties, helping to promote natural healing within the damaged disc or joint. There is no surgical exposure, damage to normal tissues or loss of motion in the spine.
Center for Spine Care offers stem cell therapy as a conservative treatment to promote natural healing for back or neck pain. Utilizing mesenchymal stem cells, this new method is used to treat patients with neck and back pain caused from degenerative disc disease.
