Badger Stem Cell is a clinic that was established in order to help patients try to improve pain related to arthritis, avoid or postpone surgery and regain quality of life through Stem Cell Therapy or PRP therapy (platelet rich plasma).
Both options are generally referred to as "Biologic therapies." These revolutionary treatments use your body's own cells or blood to activate your body's power to promote healing, decrease inflammation and improve your pain. The treatments are another option for you as a patient to try and avoid or postpone surgery and return to doing the things you enjoy most in life.
Stem Cell Therapy (BMAC)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Basics of Procedures
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cell Therapy, also known as Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC), uses your body's own bone marrow for improvement of pain and inflammation. Bone marrow aspirate contains growth factors and anti-inflammatory proteins that have been shown to promote healing and reduce pain and inflammation.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma is a concentration of your own blood platelets. We collect a small amount of your blood and separate the plasma, which contains a high concentration of platelets. Platelets play a critical role in healing soft tissue injuries. An injection of platelet-rich plasma gives your body a natural boost to accelerate the healing process and decrease inflammation. Many patients report pain relief in addition to rapid healing.
What Are the Potential Benefits of these treatments?
These therapies are low-risk, non-invasive treatments. They have the potential to drastically improve orthopedic conditions like osteoarthritis, tendon injuries, and ligament injuries in the body. They also benefit people who are not candidates for surgery or those who want to avoid surgery due to age, health concerns, or other limitations in life.
Potential benefits include:
· Rapid pain relief and healing
· Fewer complications than surgery
· Minimal down time
· No incision, no scarring
These treatments are typically effective in orthopedic conditions such as:
· Arthritis (knee, shoulder, ankle)
· Sprains and strains
First, we draw a small amount of blood (PRP injections) or bone marrow aspirate (Stem Cell injections) and spin it in a specialized FDA-approved device to obtain the therapeutic injection. The concentrate contains large amounts of growth factors and anti-inflammatory proteins that are essential to initiate the repair process and to decrease pain and inflammation.
Next, we numb the area to be treated. We then inject the concentrate into the damaged tissue. The injection signals the body to begin the healing and repair process.
The entire procedure is done in one trip to our clinic and you will be able to return home the same day.
