Tendinitis, tendinosis, tendinopathy are medical terminologies describing tendon disease.

Although underlying causes and pathology may be different but the evident symptom in all is pain. Medical treatment offered in all three conditions is also similar and can only offer temporary relief, from as little as simple rest and cold packs to steroidal injections with its short and long term complications.

Tendon injuries are a common cause of physical disability and present a clinical challenge to clinicians due to their poor response to medical treatment. Regenerative Therapies available at Medica Stem Cells offer a different and unconventional line of treatment to promote natural regeneration of the damaged tendon in the most safe, simple and non-surgical procedure.

 

Ligaments are tough bands of tissue that connect the bones in your body. Sprains and partial tears are treated conservatively by immobilisation, rest and pain killers for weeks to months.

Regenerative therapies may promote natural regeneration of the damaged ligament. At Medica Stem Cells and under local anaesthesia, we offer you a safe and simple one day procedure using your own mesenchymal or stromal fraction cells. In some cases we may need more than one injection to maximize benefit.

Short recovery period so you can go back to doing what you love faster and without surgery.

 

Non-surgical Regenerative treatments are a same-day procedures and the options are:

Prolotherapy
Platelet-rich plasma – PRP therapy
Mesenchymal cell therapy
SVF (Stromal vascular fraction) therapy

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. The choice of treatment is at the discretion of the Consultant and is based on your unique case.

This treatment may however not be suitable for all patients and only after review of your individual cases can the Consultant be able to discuss your options.

Please contact us for a consultation and complete assessment to determine whether or not your condition can be treated with these minimally invasive, non-surgical regenerative procedures.

Avoid surgery and its risks and many complications

Regenerative Therapy is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure, which gives patients an alternative to painful 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.
