Regenerative medicine is a new field of medicine in which orthopedic surgeons aim to move away from replacement and toward joint preservation. Using orthobiologics, we can provide your body with the cells, materials, and stimulation it needs to heal without you ever going under the knife.
Recent advancements in stem cell technology open a new door for patients suffering from diseases and disorders that have yet to be treated. Stem cell-based therapy, including human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) and multipotent mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), has recently emerged as a key player in regenerative medicine.
Scientists hope to one day find a cure for AS. Until then, researchers are studying new ways to manage this chronic inflammatory condition. Get the facts about stem cell therapy for ankylosing spondylitis.

Stem cell therapy has been touted as a cure for so many conditions. Now it's time to add another one to the list.
Bone marrow aspirate concentrate augmentation of the bone-patellar tendon-bone allograft during ACL reconstruction may yield greater signal intensity scores on MRI at 3 months postoperatively, according to published results.
Rotator cuff injury is a common upper extremity musculoskeletal disease that may lead to persistent pain and functional impairment. Despite the clinical outcomes of the surgical procedures being satisfactory, the repair of the rotator cuff remains problematic, such as through failure of healing, adhesion formation, and fatty infiltration. Stem cells have high proliferation, strong paracrine action, and multiple differentiation potential, which promote tendon remodeling and fibrocartilage formation and increase biomechanical strength.
