Orthopaedic

Assessment prior to all orthopaedic cases requires submission of X-Ray or MRI reports in order to evaluate each individual case to assess likelihood of success with attempting regenerative therapy.

Neck/Back Arthritis and Spine Disease

Two common problems causing neck or back pain is degenerative disk disease and facet arthropathy (a type of arthritis) of the cervical spine. Not all disk problems are amenable to regenerative therapy and patient selection is very important to optimize outcomes.  Many forms of spine pain are actually due to arthritis of the facet joints (small joints where vertebra connect to their adjacent neighbouring vertebrae).

Knee Problems 

Knee arthritis is a form of degenerative joint disease that affects millions of Americans. There are several alternatives to knee surgery such as injection of cartilage substitutes or steroids. Steroid injection is not favoured as a viable long term treatment since the steroids actually damage local tissues over time. Certain types of knee problems including significant meniscal and ligamentous injuries may not be amenable to regenerative therapy. It is important to evaluate each individual case to assess likelihood of success with attempting regenerative therapy. CSN has developed a degenerative knee disease protocol that attempts to exploit the anti-inflammatory and healing effects of SVF (rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors).  The deployment protocol performed under local anesthesia is all done as an outpatient at the time of SVF harvesting and procurement. The entire cellular surgical procedure takes approximately 3.5 hours.

Hip Problems

Hip arthritis is a form of degenerative joint disease that affects millions of Americans. Patients try to delay hip replacement surgery for as long as possible and often seek hip injections with steroids. Steroid injection is not favoured as a viable long term treatment since the steroids actually damage local tissues over time. Certain types of hip problems including certain fractures and injuries may not be amenable to cell therapy. It is important to evaluate each individual case to assess likelihood of success with attempting regenerative therapy. CSN has developed a degenerative hip disease SVF deployment protocol that attempts to exploit the anti-inflammatory and healing effects of SVF (rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors). SVF is injected using local anesthesia under ultrasound guidance to ensure that the injection is accurate. This is all done as an outpatient at the time of SVF harvesting and procurement. The entire cellular surgical procedure takes approximately 3.5 hours

Elbow & Hand Problems

Elbow and Hand problems from arthritis of joints of the upper extremity is a form of degenerative joint disease that disables millions of North Americans. Certain types of elbow and wrist joint problems including certain tendon problems and ligamentous injuries may not be amenable to cell therapy. It is important to evaluate each individual case to assess likelihood of success with attempting regenerative therapy.

Shoulder Problems

Shoulder problems come from chronic pain from rotator cuff injuries and arthritis of joints of the shoulder disables millions of North Americans. Certain types of shoulder joint problems including certain tendon problems and ligamentous injuries may not be amenable to cell therapy. It is important to evaluate each individual case to assess likelihood of success with attempting regenerative therapy.

 

Results from this or any other treatment cannot be guaranteed. Your stem cells are your body’s own ability to heal. Outcomes will vary from patient to patient.  Each potential patient must be assessed individually to determine the potential for optimum results from this regenerative therapy.  To learn more about stem cell therapy, please contact us by clicking here or calling our clinic at 604-708-CELL (604-708-2355).
