Stem Cell Therapy


Made from bone marrow fluid, bone marrow aspirate concentrate contains stem cells that promote the healing of some joint and bone injuries. Remarkable in their potential to evolve into a wide variety of cell types, stem cells work to repair damage in many tissues throughout the body. They can divide exponentially and continue replenishing other cells as long as you are alive.

When stem cells divide into two stem cells, each stem cell has the ability to develop into a different, more specialized cell or remain functioning as a stem cell. Stem cell therapy is used to:

  • Heal broken or diseased bones
  • Grow new blood vessels
  • Repair damaged cartilage
  • Treat all types of hip, shoulder, arm and lower leg pain
  • Encourage the healing of wounds
  • Relieve bursitis symptoms

Bone marrow cell concentrate (BMCC) contains the same healing growth factors that are found in platelet-rich plasma (PRP), but with the additional benefits of stem cells. When the body is injured or suffers an inflammatory disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis, damaged cells disconnect from the rest of the body and die (apoptosis).

Parts of dead cells are recycled by molecules and proteins for further use by the body. Bone marrow aspirate concentrate rich in stem cells contributes to healing muscle, bone and tissue damage by replacing cells lost to apoptosis and preventing regulatory protein activity responsible for unnecessary cell death.


How Is Stem Cell Injection Treatment Done?

Your stem cell injection doctor in in NYC obtains bone marrow aspirate concentrate from your hip bone by first injecting numbing medication into your hip and then collecting the marrow aspirate using a thin needle. Since the area is completely numb, discomfort is minimal to none and the procedure is over in less than 40 minutes.

Fluid collected from your bone is put into a centrifuge that separates platelets, white blood cells and serum from red blood cells. White blood cells, stem cells and platelets are then collected using a syringe. After anesthetizing sites receiving the injections, your doctor conducting the stem cell therapy for your joints in New York will inject the marrow aspirate into these areas.

Depending on the duration and severity of the injury or disease affecting your bones or tissues, you may need two or three stem cell injection treatments in Jersey City. After your doctor evaluates your body’s response to the treatment during a follow-up visit, you’ll know whether additional injections are necessary.


Does Stem Cell Injection Therapy Present Any Health Risks?

Clinical data shows that bone marrow cell concentrate is extremely safe and poses minimal risk of causing adverse reactions. Since the BMCC used is from your own body, there is no chance of disease transmission or rejection by your immune system.

Some people who receive stem cell injections for joints may feel soreness around the injured or diseased area. Soreness means stem cells are rapidly reproducing and the healing response has begun. As healing progresses, the soreness will decrease.
