Atlanta Hip Stem Cell Treatment
Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is one of Atlanta’s leading innovators when it comes to stem cell treatment for hip arthritis. We are proud to be one of a select group of physicians around the country to offer stem cell treatment to relieve osteoarthritis pain. In our orthopedic practice in Atlanta, Georgia, we offer stem cell injections as well as the surgical implantation of stem cells. This advanced treatment uses your own body’s repair mechanisms and growth factors to promote healing. Currently, stem cell therapy is the only hip treatment available to reverse the joint disease process and preserve the joint indefinitely.
Cutting Edge Hip Pain Treatment
Stem cell therapy is a cutting edge treatment that can be used to treat the pain and other symptoms associated with arthritis of the hip. During the procedure, our physicians will extract stem cells from either the bone marrow in your hip or from adipose tissue on the stomach. The stem cells are then injected or surgically implanted into your damaged hip joint to promote healing. Since the stem cells are from your own body, the risk of rejection is very low.
Stem cell therapy can be highly effective in treating osteoarthritis pain, but it is not right for everyone. In general, stem cell injections are recommended for patients with moderate osteoarthritis in the hip where there is not complete collapse of the joint space and “bone on bone” changes have not yet occurred. Patients with certain medical issues such as lymphoma and leukemia are not candidates for this type of treatment. After a thorough evaluation, one of our doctors can determine whether or not you could benefit from this advanced and cutting-edge treatment.
