Important Factors In Orthopedic Stem Cell Treatment:

This makes number 1 on the list because an orthopedic stem cell treatment is only as good as the doctor performing it. It can be the most highly advanced Orthopedic Physical Therapy in the world, but if the doctor doesn't know what he or she is doing, nothing else matters.

Cell Source Is Important

This one is simple and straightforward. It's been determined that the best stem cell source for treating orthopedic conditions is ***** marrow, and I've shared a great deal of research supporting this over the years. Stem cells from ***** just don't work as well for orthopedic conditions as they are less able to repair musculoskeletal structures like cartilage and tendons.

Harvesting Technique Is Critical

***** marrow aspiration (BMA) is the procedure used to harvest ***** marrow stem cells. How the BMA is done is critical. Ultrasound or X-ray guidance is imperative to assure the harvesting is being done properly and from the right spots.

Count the Cells and Know the Dose

There is no other area of medicine in which it is acceptable to have no idea of the dosage of what's being injected. And while it shouldn't be OK in the world of pediatric orthopedic surgeon, stem cell treatments, unfortunately, all too often, the doctor has no idea of the dosage.
