Hip Pain

Life becomes difficult, when you’re suffering from hip pain or injury due to arthritis in the hip, osteoarthritis, bursitis of the hip, traumatic ligament injuries, overuse conditions and other degenerative conditions of the hip. Even simple day to day activities take so much effort to do and sometimes pain can be unbearable. The conventional line of treatment for people suffering from these issues often include steroid hip injections, hip surgery, hip replacement surgery and hip resurfacing to help stop the hip pain. Hip surgery can be traumatic and is associated with high risks, like the increased risk of heart attack or hip replacement loosening, in which components detach from the bone. It is also followed by months of recovery to regain strength and mobility. This is what separates conventional treatment from Regenerative Hip Pain treatment provided by Medica Stem Cells Pain Management Clinic. Regenerative Therapy is an alternative treatment option for hip pain that continues to be proven successful, not only by scientists and researchers, but also by doctors who utilize this treatment for a variety of conditions, including arthritis in the hip, osteoarthritis, Labral tear and bursitis of the hip.

Avoid surgery and its risks and many complications

Regenerative Therapy is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure, which gives patients an alternative to painful hip surgery and lengthy recovery. The procedure is performed in an outpatient setting and only takes a few hours. No general anaesthesia is required and most patients don’t need post-operative pain medication. Also, patients typically return to work within a week or two (unless told otherwise by the doctor) and they resume physical activity much faster than after invasive hip surgery.

 

Minimal post-procedural recovery time

One of the most time consuming factors of any injury is not always the treatment itself, but actually the recovery time. With Regenerative therapies, there is far less risk involved than surgery and recovery time is much shorter compared to surgery.

 

No use of general anaesthesia

Do you not like the way general anaesthesia makes your feel? Or do you simply get anxious at the thought of being put under? Regenerative therapy may be just what you need as it does not require the use of general anaesthesia. It provides a safe increasingly effective non-surgical alternative to treating medical conditions using the body’s own natural ability to repair itself without the use of medication.

 

Same day procedure

The best part, after comprehensive examination and review of your case, blood tests & radio-imaging scans are done to establish a baseline for your pre-existing condition, is that our Regenerative Therapies are a non-invasive treatment and an outpatient same day procedure, where the Consultant will decide which line of Regenerative Therapy is most suited to your case. In certain cases it may be a combination of more than one treatment protocol. For some patients however, the complete protocol is a series of injections in several treatment sessions.

 

Safe procedures with No risk of rejection and No communicable disease transmission

Your immune system has no reason to attack your cells and there is no risk of contracting a transmittable infectious disease from a donor patient also. In fact, studies thus far have indicated no safety issues with fat-derived autologous (from self) cells. Because they are your own cells, the risk of rejection is eliminated.

The increased risk of heart attack, as found to be associated with hip replacement surgery, is not present with Regenerative therapies, either. Like any procedure, there is a minute risk of infection at the sample collection and at the hip injection site. To minimize that risk the procedure is carried out under strict sterile conditions.

Am I a candidate for the Medica Stem Cells therapies?

In general, Regenerative Medica Stem Cells Therapies can be utilized by anyone, regardless of the age, race, or gender. However, in order to determine if you are a good candidate and will benefit the most from Regenerative treatment, you will need to schedule appointment with our Clinic to have an assessment done by our Consultant, who will review your medical records and determine if you are a qualified candidate for our therapy. The choice of treatment is then at the discretion of the Consultant and is based on your unique case.

 

Do Regenerative treatments or therapies work?

There are a number of studies that have been published in the Regenerative medicine demonstrating positive results from Regenerative treatments like Stem Cell therapy, PRP etc.

Regenerative therapies have now been utilized in clinical practice to treat degenerative knees, hips and shoulders for more than five years and are demonstrating excellent results. Patients are seeing marked reduction in pain as well as improvement in cartilage quality. A variety of well-founded clinical trials have been conducted on stem cell therapy for management and treatment of chronic pain. The trials concerning Regenerative therapies are widely published online (ex. on PubMed) and readily available for all to access. The use of Regenerative treatments is proving more and more to be a safe and effective means of treatment (this however does not imply that it works for every single case). These treatments allow the body to heal and regenerate in ways that were thought impossible before. Regenerative technology provides a natural alternative to the use of medication and surgeries, which may be more harmful and invasive.

Regenerative therapy procedures are quickly becoming a first line of treatment for chronic pain, degenerative joint disease, like arthritis or osteoarthritis, providing a minimally invasive option to avoid invasive surgical repair, and other various conditions. There are many Medica Stem Cell patient testimonials on our website who have experienced significant improvements on their condition for You to view.

 

When do I See Results? What can I expect after Regenerative Therapy for Knee Pain?

Regenerative therapy only takes a few hours to complete and is performed in an outpatient setting, no general anaesthesia is required and most patients don’t need post-operative pain medication.  Patients will be able to go home almost immediately after the injection is done. Since this therapy is an orthobiological treatment that requires time for the cells to restore the damaged areas, patients will not feel the effect of the injection immediately. Most patients will experience improved pain and mobility over time. This is due to the strong anti-inflammatory effect of the growth factors associated with adult mesenchymal cells.

The first day after the treatment, you might experience mild discomfort at injection site which should not be restrictive, mild pain in the treatment area may persist for a day or two. This can be alleviated by rest and if needed simple pain killers may be prescribed.

Hip injuries or conditions may or may not require repeat treatment. Typically it is best to wait 3-6 months before considering it. Most of the time repeat treatment is done because some improvement has been seen and more is sought.

Reviews of your progress may extend up to 6 months following the procedure. Reviews can be by means of a clinic visits or alternatively for your ease by video / phone call.

You will be asked during the period of follow up to keep an accurate record of your progress to compare to your starting point.

The final outcome of the treatment and extent of improvement varies from one patient to another depending on type and severity of the condition, age, etc…
