Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Disc Herniation
At Spine and Joint Center we focus on regenerative therapies for spinal disc herniations for the the Cervical and Lumbar spine. With advances in Regenerative Medicine we can now offer patients the option of injecting regenerative agents such as PRP and stem cells into a damaged disc. This includes disc annular tears, disc bulges/protrusions and disc herniations. In some cases this can help a patient avoid bigger spinal surgeries such as spinal fusion surgery. In cases where the disc herniation is very large or the disc is very damaged we offer the option of minimally invasive spinal decompression and repair and combine that procedure with either PRP or stem cells. The effect is often synergistic and in many cases very powerful. We are now at a stage where we can offer patients alternatives to spinal surgery or back surgery.
The downside of traditional spine surgery is that you often loss range of motion after surgery or create a substantial amount of scar tissue. This does not happen when we use regenerative treatments to treat disc problems either in the lumbar or cervical region. Also with a traditional spinal fusion surgery even if the disc problem is treated successfully it often places increased stress on the disc either below or above the level of surgery or fusion. In the future this can cause that disc to degenerate and even lead to a disc herniation.
Finally, with the advancement in regenerative medicine we can offer patients alternatives to back surgery and spinal surgery.
