Treatments for Elbow and Hand Problems

At Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center, we have a wealth of experience treating joints affected by injury and osteoarthrosis- a form of degenerative joint disease. Millions of Americans suffer from arthritis that affects the elbow and hand, which can make the common activities of daily life both difficult and demanding. For patients looking for stem cell therapy for elbow and hand problems including pain, our procedures can offer relief.

Stem Cell Elbow and Hand Treatment

The regenerative joint disease deployment protocol developed by Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center harnesses the anti-inflammatory, immune-modulatory, and healing properties of Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF). As the end product, SVF is rich in stem cells and growth factor. The process starts with harvest of two ounces of fat through by mini-liposuction under local anesthesia. From this fat tissue, we end up with half an ounce of sterile SVF. Our expert doctors then inject this precious SVF into the affected joint and under ultrasound guidance, if needed, to ensure accuracy. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), an autologous blood product that has been shown to improve bone and soft tissue healing and regeneration, often gets added to act as scaffolding and nourishing agent. The entire cellular surgical procedure takes approximately three hours and is completed at our outpatient facility from start to end.

Because certain types of elbow and wrist joint problems, including certain tendon problems and ligamentous injuries, may do better with other modalities of therapy, Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center evaluates the potential success rates of regenerative therapy on a case-by-case basis.
