About Aokc Stem Cell Therapy

As with all medical treatments, it is very important to ensure your stem cell therapy provider is a licensed, experienced regenerative medicine practitioner. Unethical and unlicensed clinics may deal in non-FDA-approved or other unsafe stem cell techniques.

Conditions

Stem cell therapy is one of the most exciting and promising medical developments in decades. It has been used in Europe for over 20 years. Research is still ongoing, but it has already been shown that regenerative medicine can effectively treat the following health issues.

  • Chronic pain in joints, knees, hips, elbows, and back
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Patellar Tendonitis
  • Damaged Cartilage
  • Sprained or Torn Ligaments
  • Neuropathy
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Disc Problems
  • Bone Problems

The Stem Cell Therapy Process

  • In our office or surgery center, the doctor will harvest bone marrow aspirate from the iliac crest (pelvic/hip bone) His research has been published in numerous prominent medical journals.

  • Next, if you’re using bone marrow aspirate from your iliac crest, your collected blood is spun in a centrifuge for about 15 minutes.

  • Finally, the resulting preparation of concentrated stem cell blood is re-injected into the injured area. The cells go to work right away, lowering inflammation in the short-term and beginning the process of tissue repair over the longer term.
