Stem Cell Therapy for Broken Bones – That’s a Thing?
Fractures of the long bones occur commonly and include the humerus, radius, ulna, femur, tibia, and fibula. Often times they require surgery with insertion of rods or plates. Unfortunately despite patients’ and surgeons’ best efforts, oftentimes these fractures fail to heal. The all to common result is a patient that has limited mobility and function and continues to have pain.
Treatment options are limited and may include the application of a bone stimulator in the hopes that it will stimulate the generation of bone growth and hence the healing of the fracture.
Regret ably another option is for the surgeon is to simply remove the hardware and re-break the bones. Yes. Re-break the bones and place another set of plates and or rods into the bone. This exposes the patient to anesthesia, the risks inherent in surgery not to mention the pain and suffering associated with the surgery and rehabilitation.
Now there is an easy, non-surgical therapy for long bone fractures that have not healed. At Regenexx, we place your own expanded stem cells in the fracture site with a needle. It is a needle in, needle out a procedure with profound results which we are published shortly. Please see two case examples below:
