At Vail-Summit Orthopaedics, we are dedicated to offering the latest and most advanced treatments and procedures. That’s why we offer stem cell injections, also known as bone marrow concentrate therapy. Adult stem cells are found in your bone marrow and are able to become several different kinds of cells, such as bone, muscle, tendon, and blood cells.
In a stem cell injection, stem cells will be extracted from your own bone marrow. The extracted stem cells will then be concentrated and injected into the treatment site. Once injected, the stem cells may help to heal your injury or condition.
Stem cell therapy can be used to treat many injuries and conditions, including:
- ACL sprains and tears
- Articular cartilage injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Degenerative disc disease
- Degenerative joint disease
- Herniated discs
- Labral tears
- Partial rotator cuff tears
- Pinched nerves
- Trigger fingers
Treatment can be done on an outpatient basis and will usually take less than an hour.
