What Are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are the body’s own repair kit. Adult stem cells, not to be confused with embryonic stem cells, reside in adult bone marrow and fat, as well as other tissues and organs of the body. When you have an injury, these stem cells have the natural ability to repair the damaged tissue. However, in people with degenerative diseases, these stem cells are not released quickly enough to repair the damaged tissue.
For a more in depth look at stem cell therapy take a look at our article How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work
When your own harvested stem cells are injected into the damaged area that requires treatment, the process is essentially mimicking the body’s natural healing process and can even attract other stem cells to the injured area or transform into new tissue.
Stem cell therapy is an intervention strategy that introduces new adult stem cells into damaged tissue in order to treat disease or injury. Many medical researchers believe that stem cell treatments have the potential to change the face of human disease and alleviate suffering.
The ability of stem cells to self-renew and give rise to subsequent generations with variable degrees of differentiation capacities, offers significant potential for generation of tissues that can potentially replace diseased and damaged areas in the body, with minimal risk of rejection and side effects.
Can Stem Cell Therapy Replace Surgery?
In many cases, yes. However, a full evaluation is needed first to determine if your condition is a good fit for stem cell therapy.
If we look at the evolution of medicine, specifically as it relates to injuries, stem cell therapy is possibility the next evolution of successfully treating damaged joints and injuries. Take Tommy John Surgery, a torn ACL was a career death sentence to a professional athlete, but now only requires a twelve to eighteen month rehab period. Stem cell therapy appears to be the next evolution for the treatment injuries with faster recovery times and with a minimal risk of rejection.
Can Stem Cell Therapy help Back Injuries, Rotator Cuff and Hip Injuries, and offer an Alternative for Knee Replacements?
Yes. Stem cell therapy is fast becoming the future of how injuries are being treated. In fact, in a recent interview on the Dan Patrick Show, the eminent Sports Medicine Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who has performed surgery on such athletes as Micheal Jordan, Jack Nicklaus, Emmitt Smith and Trow Aikman to name just a few, indicated that the future of sports medicine will be in the areas of stem cell therapy and others like it.
We have some great articles that address these specific medical problems.

- Stem Cell Therapy for Shoulder Pain
- Stem Cell Therapy for Rotator Cuff Injury
- Stem Cell Therapy for Osteoarthritis
The rejuvenating powers of stem cell therapy to treat back injuries, rotator cuff injuries, hip injuries, arthritis pain, shoulder pain and especially knee replacement surgery, will probably become the standard treatment options in the not to distant future.
