Stem Cells Offer Tissue Regeneration
Stem cells are blank cells that take on the identity of cells it comes in contact with. By injecting stem cells into the damaged joint, the cells eventually take on the identity of the tendons and cartilage or other damaged tissue. As this occurs, the damaged area is restored and repaired thanks to this new tissue regeneration. But where do stem cells come from? Stem cells can be found inside of the body in many different locations, but usually it is removed from the marrow of a bone. The hip bone offers the clearest access point, so when performing stem cell treatments, the cells are retrieved through a small incision made to access the hip bone.
