Stem Cell Therapy


Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are elementary cells that have what is called pluripotency: the ability to transform into any type of tissue they encounter in the body. Their role is to repair and regenerate body tissues such as muscle, bone cartilage, tendons, discs, skin, and much more. To do this, they travel through the circulatory system to damaged cell tissues and develop into the same cell type as the damaged tissue. The richest sources of stem cells in the body are adipose tissue (fat) and bone marrow.

The body’s natural regeneration system is constantly at work on all of our cell tissues, whether they are damaged or not. For example, your liver is entirely renewed every 2 to 3 years, and your pancreas every 4 years, and your skeleton every 7 years. Because adult stem cells act as a repair system for the body, they are frequently used in various medical therapies to accelerate the regeneration of damaged tissues and organs.

Stem cell therapy is the medical technique best-approximating perfection in treating backaches, musculoskeletal disorders, and sports and joint injuries. Stem cell therapy has even been shown to have fibrinolytic effects. Stem cell therapy is safe, and a procedure can be completed within just a few hours. Stem cell therapy makes it possible to avoid the complications associated with surgical procedures. Stem cell treatments are minimally invasive, with low risks and a short recovery time. Please note that stem cell therapy it is not recommended for children and pregnant women.


Stem cell therapy consists of first extracting stem cells from bone marrow or abdominal fat in order to isolate the stem cells through the process of centrifugation. The stem cells are then injected at the precise location where the patient has damaged tissue. The stem cells differentiate, depending on the type of tissue into which they are injected. For example, if they are injected into a ligament, they turn into ligament cells. If injected into a tendon, they become tendon cells. The stem cells trigger the regeneration and healing of the targeted tissues. To ensure accuracy and safety, stem cell therapy is always done using ultrasound or fluoroscopy guidance, strict aseptic techniques, and prophylactic antibiotics.


The main benefits of stem cell therapy are:

  • Significant and long-term pain relief
  • Increase in function and range of motion
