Stem cell therapy is neither new nor unproven. On the contrary, stem cells have been used for multiple therapeutic purposes with great success for over 70 years. Not only are they used to treat cancer and blood-related diseases (an application of which most of us are familiar), they have been — and continue to be — rigorously studied and used in other treatments and for other purposes, as well. And while perhaps not as well-publicized as bone marrow transplants, these analyses and uses certainly have the potential to offer similar ...

Stem Cell Therapy vs. Shoulder Surgery: What You Need to Know

Scott Brandt, M.D. Stem Cell Therapy, Stem Cells for Joint & Soft Tissue Pain, Stem Cells for Shoulder

The human shoulder consists of three bones (the clavicle, scapula and humerus) and many tendons, ligaments and muscles that link together with a series of four joints. Injury, disease and normal wear and tear issues can affect any part of the shoulder and typically present as fractures in bones, tears in tendons and/or arthritis and instability. Indeed, the shoulder is especially prone to all types of problems because it is constantly being used, moving our arms in a wide range of motion so that we are able to push, pull, ...

2 of the Most Common Stem Cell Treatments

Scott Brandt, M.D. Stem Cell Therapy, Stem Cells for Back Pain, Stem Cells for Joint & Soft Tissue Pain

The study of stem cells remains one of science’s most promising frontiers. For more than 70 years, research has continued to shed light on the value and potential of stem cell treatments. From a basic understanding of the stem cell’s role in early cell differentiation to today’s more nuanced exploration of their regenerative effects, researchers and clinicians are harnessing the power of stem cells in ways that are improving the lives of patients with an increasing variety of problems and conditions. No longer are stem cell transplants (to treat cancer) ...

Is Stem Cell Therapy Safe? The Truth Revealed

Scott Brandt, M.D. Research, Stem Cell Therapy

The safety of any medical procedure relies on a combination of factors: the efficacy of the research supporting it, the experience of the physician(s) and medical staff involved, the overall health of the patient, the cleanliness of instruments and space used and more. Some even believe the time of day it is performed can affect a procedure’s outcome! That’s why it’s important— whether facing an invasive surgery or a routine skin check — that patients and doctors alike communicate, discussing honestly and exhaustively the pros and cons of treatment so ...

Heart attack risk soars in the first month post hip and knee replacement. Consider stem cell therapy as a safer alternative.Share this post:Surgeons often recommend hip and knee replacements for patients suffering from chronic hip or knee pain, yet the procedures are notorious for their drawbacks. Many of our patients were told their “bone-on-bone” joints needed to be replaced, but they remained wary because of the grueling recovery, the risk of infection, and other post-operative complications. Investigators of a recent article published in Arthritis and Rheumatology looked at the risk ...
