Treating Rheumatoid Arthritis with Stem Cells

The Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center, located in Ocean Springs, MS, provides state-of-the-art medical treatment to patients suffering from a variety of autoimmune diseases. One of these conditions is rheumatoid arthritis, which can be a painful and disabling autoimmune disease that affects roughly one percent of the world’s population. This condition occurs when a patient’s immune system mistakes harmless, healthy tissue for an invasive or dangerous contagion. White blood cells attack the synovial membrane, which lines joints and tendons, causing a buildup of fluid and inflammatory elements in the affected joints. Due to this synovial hypertrophy, inflammation and soft tissue hypertrophy, patients often experience morning stiffness, fatigue, losses of appetite, and low fevers.

While only a small percentage of the world’s population experiences this condition, it does have serious implications and consequences. Rheumatoid arthritis most commonly affects the hands and feet, but the cervical spine, shoulder, and knee joints are also at risk and deformities are common, especially in the hands. Secondary complications caused by the rheumatoid process itself include cardiopulmonary and renal damage.

Our Rheumatoid Arthritis Stem Cell Therapy

With our advanced stem cell therapy, we can help you alleviate your symptoms and manage your condition. At Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center, we employ mesenchymal stem cells, which we obtain by harvesting a couple of ounces from the patient’s own fat tissue. This eliminates the chance of cell rejection and decreases the amount of time the procedure takes to complete. After obtaining the cells, we deploy them into problem areas in the patient. Being multi-potent, the deployed stem cells will help regrow and repair tissue damaged by rheumatoid arthritis. This entire process takes only a few hours, allowing every patient to go home and catch up with their lives, immediately after the procedure.

There is no known cure for rheumatoid arthritis, but there is a wide variety of treatments and medications. Our stem cell therapy is recommended for those who have remained dissatisfied with the outcomes of traditional treatment options.
