Because of its healing and anti-inflammatory properties, stem cell therapy has been part of regenerative medicine for chronic joint pain. Shivani Chadha, MD, an interventional pain management specialist and anesthesiologist at Chicago Pain Relief in Willowbrook, Illinois, provides Chicagoland patients with the highest standard of stem cell therapies such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell extraction from adipose tissue. These nonsurgical procedures promote your body’s healing response and offers long-term pain relief.
You can use stem cell therapy to help treat a wide range of medical issues, including:
PRP is concentrated platelets and growth factors from a patient’s own blood. PRP may help optimize the conditions for healing and are effective in the treatment of injuries such as ligament sprains or chronic tendon injuries.
To obtain PRP, blood is first drawn from a patient. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge where the platelets are separated from other blood components in order to increase their concentration. The concentrated platelets are then re-suspended in a fraction of the plasma after the centrifugation process.
The procedure may take up to one hour but the PRP processing takes less than 15 minutes.
Adipose Tissue is created from the fat in the body. The Adipose tissue is rich in mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) and is used in tissue regeneration.
To obtain Adipose tissue, fat is drawn from a patient. The fat is spun in a centrifuge to separate the waste from a concentration rich in MSC.
The procedure may take up to one hour but the Adipose processing takes less than 10 minutes.
