Stem Cell Therapy for Hip Pain
Hip pain, especially chronic pain or weakness, can be debilitating, leading to a significantly reduced quality of life. Stem cell therapy has led to outstanding results for people living with hip pain, caused by these and some other common conditions:
Degenerative Disc Disease - while the source of the pain is in the spine, hip pain is a common symptom, caused by pressure on the spinal cord radiating down into the hips.
Herniated Disc Disease - spinal disc ruptures can cause inflammation that narrows the spinal canal, leading to radiating pain or numbness in the hips.
Hip Osteoarthritis - when cartilage is worn down in the hip, this can lead to bone spurs, pain, stiffness, and weakness.
Spinal Stenosis - The spinal cord and spinal nerves are surrounded by protective vertebrae and ligaments that hold those vertebrae together. In a healthy spine, these vertebrae and ligaments offer plenty of room for the spinal cord and nerves. Spinal stenosis is an abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal that applies pressure to the spinal cord and nerve roots.
Sciatica - Sciatica is pain caused by a medical problem in or around the sciatic nerve. Because the Sciatic Nerve runs from the lower back down into each leg, the associated pain may be referred. While lower back pain is the most common symptom of Sciatica, you may also feel pain in your hips, buttocks or legs, often on a specific side of the body.

The Effectiveness of Stem Cells in Treating Pain
Regenerative medicine is a new area of medicine that uses stem cells to regenerate tissue and “turn the clock back” to a more active and fulfilling life. We specialize in orthopedic regenerative medicine which has a long history of success scientific studies show the benefit and success of stem cell therapy for joints and back. We practice the safest and most advanced techniques to bring relief to or patients. Our success rate is very high.
Adult stem cells possess several different qualities which allow them to be effective in the treatment of damaged joints. When used to treat pain caused by damaged joints, stem cells:
● Differentiate between and grow into bone, cartilage, tendons, and ligament cells
● Offer anti-inflammatory effects, which reduces further injury
● Recruit other cells necessary to increase cell growth in joints
● Inhibit cell death (apoptosis)
● Enrich blood supply, leading to more healthy tissue regeneration
Specifically, adipose stem cells are effective in treating Osteoarthritis; and bone marrow stem cells have beneficial in Rotator Cuff repair, treating Avascular Necrosis (AVN) in the hip, and assisting with bone union.
The success of these attributes depends on several different factors including disease severity, the type of stem cell used, the procedure chosen, and other factors specific to the patient. But, overall, up to 90 percent of our patients who elect stem cell therapy experience significant, long-term pain relief.
