Naples, Florida – Stem cells have the extraordinary potential to develop into many different cell types in the body. They have the potential to remain as stem cells or become more specialized cells such as muscle cells, red blood cells, bone cells, and the like. These cells divide continuously to replenish other cells and thus serve as a sort of internal repair system.
Considering their unique regenerative abilities, stem cells give hope for patients with degenerative conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis, tendon tears and other inflammatory conditions. Non-responders to conventional therapies should consider a stem cell approach before using long-term steroidal, non-steroidal treatments, and/or surgery. This cell-based therapy to treat diseases is also referred to as regenerative medicine.
In Naples, Florida, there are two stem cell treatment options offered at the Regenerative Center of Naples, topstemcell.com. First is by using natural amniotic tissue derived stem cells, which are cells found in amniotic fluid and are obtained from, FDA, registered tissue banks. Upon injection, the amniotic stem cells can be transformed into a more versatile state similar to embryonic stem cells and take advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself. The next option is by bone marrow aspirate stem cells using the Marrow Cellution™ System. Its patent-pending technology allows doctors to harvest high quality stem and progenitor cells from various levels within the marrow space, while limiting peripheral blood contamination. The result is a bone marrow harvest that is rich in key stem and progenitor cells that may be used in a range of regenerative therapies. Both of these cutting-edge treatments are utilized to successfully treat patients with degenerative arthritis, osteoarthritis, tendonitis, and more. In severe cases, these two procedures may be combined to get the optimal active results.
With stem cell treatment, the natural repair process of degenerated and injured ligaments, tendons, and arthritis joints is enhanced. After the stem cell injection procedure, patients are typically able to return to normal activities. Patients are able to avoid the painful and lengthy rehabilitation periods following more invasive procedures like surgery.
The Regenerative Center of Naples is headed by Dr. Kevin Lam, a premier podiatrist whose total expertise focuses on the foot, ankle, leg, and related injuries and ailments. He is highly regarded by the Naples community as being one of the most qualified podiatrists, having been named among America’s Top Podiatrists in 2011 and in 2014. He was always on the cutting-edge in the field. Why offer stem cell treatments? “Treating patients and getting them better is my passion. Conservative care will always be an option that is explored and exhausted prior to surgery.” Dr. Lam said. “As a leading center that specializes in regenerative therapy, we provide the safest and most efficient individualized treatment program with our expert medical team, our advanced technologies and our excellent medical care.”
