Orthopedics and the Advantages of Stem Cell Therapy

Orthopedics and the Advantages of Stem Cell TherapyOver 35 years ago, stem cells were studied for their positive regenerative effects at the University of Cambridge.  Since that time, stem cell regenerative medicine has come a long way with numerous research trials and studies that show the efficacious benefits to various age groups, and for many different medical issues. Stem Cell treatment can ease arthritis and chronic pain.  It can also restore and heal injuries like bunions, rotator cuff, tendon and ligament tears, as well as labral and cartilage damage.
In orthopedics stem cells are typically derived from fat, bone marrow and the blood platelets of the adult patient, but when were dealing with age related injuries or aging degenerative effects like arthritis, the stem cells from a 70-year-old, are not going to be as beneficial in healing the body.  At the Advanced Orthopedics Institute (AOI), the surgeons are dedicated to giving you the best quality care with top outcomes, and that’s precisely why they use OrthoFlo by Mimedex.  OrthoFlo is a stem cell allograft taken from amniotic fluid.
Mimedx cites the following:
“OrthoFlo is an amniotic fluid allograft that is provided lyophilized, and is intended for homologous use to:
• Protect & cushion
• Provide lubrication for enhanced mobility
• Modulate inflammation
OrthoFlo is a human tissue allograft that is derived from amniotic fluid, donated by mothers delivering healthy babies by scheduled Caesarean section.
Amniotic fluid, in utero, naturally functions to protect, cushion and lubricate.1 Key elements of amniotic fluid include growth factors, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, electrolytes, and other nutrients, as well as hyaluronic acid (HA), a principle component that provides viscosity and lubrication in the synovial fluid that surrounds joints.
OrthoFlo is an amniotic fluid allograft, which helps to cushion, lubricate and protect the joint. OrthoFlo is procured and processed in the United States according to standards and regulations established by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) and the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA).”
Along with OrthoFlo, Advanced Orthopedics Institute also uses Mimedx’s AmnioFix.
“AmnioFix® is a composite amniotic tissue membrane minimally manipulated to protect the collagen matrix and its natural properties. AmnioFix® reduces scar tissue formation, modulates inflammation in the surgical site, enhances healing, and acts as a barrier.”
After years of accomplishment, Stem cell therapy is being utilized in many different medical specialties as it’s finally receiving the credentials that it has proven to provide.  Scientists are discovering new ways that stem cells are able to assist in healing.  One of these ways is to fight viruses.  Stem cells are also being made into vaccines and immunotherapeutic treatment.  In orthopedics, stem cell therapy provides the following advantages:
Stem Cells Benefits
• Allows the body to heal itself naturally
• Reduces treatment time
• Quicker recovery time
• Restores degenerative tissue
• Lowers risk of infections
• Often alleviates surgery completely
• Can be used to improve healing rate after surgical procedure
AOI is at the forefront of orthopedics.   Dr. John T. Williams, Jr. specialties are hip and knee replacements, and knee revisions.  Dr. Alfred J. Cook Jr., specializes in sports medicine, shoulder surgery and replacements, rotator cuff repairs, and knee procedures including arthroscopy.  Both doctors  use innovative early prevention treatments for arthritis.
