At Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center(GCSC&RMC), 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.
Elbow and hand pain from arthritis of joints of the upper extremity is a form of degenerative joint disease that disables millions of 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 the likelihood of success with attempting regenerative therapy.
Elbow, Wrist, Hand, and Thumb Pain – Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center
Our Cell Surgical Network(CSN) has developed a degenerative joint 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 into the affected joint and radiographic imaging techniques are often used to ensure accuracy. This is all done as an outpatient at the time of SVF harvesting and procurement. The entire cellular surgical procedure takes approximately 3 hours.
In addition, at GCSC&RMC, we have pioneered the incorporation of Extracorporeal Pressure Activation Technology (EPAT) into our protocol of stem cell deployment. This breakthrough modality, first pioneered by STORZ of Germany and Switzerland in 1980 to fragment kidney stones, causes mechanical-chemical transduction, which activates dormant local stem cells and repair processes, producing various active substances. These include substance P that alleviates pain and other complex molecules that activate the healing cascade and attracts more of the deployed stem cells to the site of injury or disease.
We care about our patients at GCSC&RMC and take pride in the time we provide to our patients to deploy the best protocols to help our patients achieve their goals.
