Stem Cell Injections Q & A

What are stem cell injections?

Stem cell injections are a treatment method which injects stem cells into the affected area of your body to stimulate a healing response. In most cases, these cells are from your own body. Because stem cells are undifferentiated, they can become any type of tissue.

When injected into an injured area, these cells promote the regeneration of damaged tissues so you can heal faster and more effectively.

When are stem cell injections appropriate?

Stem cell injections may be appropriate anytime you have a tissue injury that causes pain, stiffness, or other symptoms. These injections may help with:

  • Joint pain
  • Torn ligaments
  • Damaged cartilage
  • Dislocations
  • Broken bones

However, stem cell injections aren't the right choice for every patient. In some cases, your injuries may be too minor to require stem cell injections. In other cases, your injury may be too severe for stem cell injections, and you may need surgery instead.

Dr. Devanny can help you decide what treatment option is best for your needs.

How does stem cell therapy work?

Your body’s stem cells are responsible for regenerating damaged tissues and helping you heal from injuries. These cells can turn into whatever type of cell your body needs to promote tissue repair.

Injecting these cells into a damaged area gives your body the resources it needs to begin and/or speed up the healing process. Once in place, these cells produce chemicals that encourage cell repair and reduce inflammation.

How effective is stem cell treatment?

Studies have shown that stem cell injections can effectively encourage tissue regeneration and healing. In fact, some studies have shown success rates as high as 70-90%. If you undergo this treatment, you may begin noticing results in as little as six to eight weeks.

Is this type of treatment safe?

Stem cell injections are considered safe for most patients. Because the cells are usually from your own body, you’re unlikely to experience any side effects related to rejection or allergic reactions. Dr. Devanny explains all risks of this procedure before you begin treatment.

Most patients experience no serious side effects after treatment. However, if you notice anything worrisome, please contact Dr. Devanny right away for guidance.
