Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cells are found naturally in your body. They’re the only cells with the unique ability to regenerate into any type of healthy new cell to replace damaged cells. Stem cells can divide into:

  • Bone
  • Nerves
  • Cartilage
  • Ligaments
  • Heart muscle

In stem cell therapy, Dr. Nair injects concentrated amounts of stem cells into your joints or other injured areas to promote natural healing from the inside out. By healing damaged tissue and nerves, Dr. Nair can help you find long-term pain relief.

What conditions can be treated with stem cell therapy?

There are many injuries and degenerative diseases that can benefit from stem cell therapy. Dr. Nair first determines if you’re a candidate for stem cell therapy by reviewing your medical history and assessing how severe your injury is. He may recommend stem cell injections for:

  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Fractures
  • Tendinitis
  • Nerve damage
  • Degenerative disc disease

In many cases, stem cell therapy can reduce the need for surgery to ease your pain and restore function in your injured or diseased joint or tissues.

What can I expect during stem cell therapy?

The stem cells Dr. Nair uses in treatment are found in your fatty tissue or bone marrow. He isolates the stem cells from other materials to achieve a high concentration of cells before injecting them into the injured area.

Immediately after your injections, you can go back to your usual routine without any downtime. Over time, new cells develop to replace damaged ones and stimulate your body to heal itself. As new cells grow, you can expect a significant reduction in pain and an increase in mobility.

When will I see results from stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy takes time to work and many people see results within 4-6 weeks of their treatment. Because this treatment focuses on repairing the root cause of your pain, you can expect your results to be long-lasting. 

Dr. Nair continues to monitor your pain relief and the success of your stem cell therapy during follow-up visits.
