Stem Cell Regenerative Medicine for
Shoulders, Elbow, Hips, Knees, & Ankles

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a progressive joint disorder caused by the painful inflammation of soft tissue, which leads to thinning of cartilage and joint damage, most commonly in the hands, knees, hips and spine. It is the most common form of arthritis, affecting over 20 million Americans. While there is no known cure for osteoarthritis, there is help for the relief of pain associated with this common condition. OA affects major joints in the body:
  • Shoulder
  • Elbow
  • Hip
  • Knee
  • Ankle

Tendinitis – Plantar Fasciitis – Achilles Tendon – 
Tennis Elbow – Golfers Elbow – Rotator Cuff

Tendinitis (sometimes spelled tendonitis) is an inflammation or irritation of a tendon, a thick cord that attaches bone to muscle. It is most often caused by repetitive impact or sudden injury to the affected area. Common household activities may contribute to the development of tendinitis—cleaning, gardening, shoveling, raking and painting—as well as participation in such sports as tennis, golf, skiing and baseball. Other risk factors for tendinitis include poor posturing, insufficient conditioning before exercise, abnormal bone or joint placement, unusual medication reactions and even infections.

A few of the conditions associated with chronic tendinitis include:
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendon
  • Patellar tendon
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfers elbow
  • Rotator cuff
Because all of the areas listed above lack an abundant amount of blood flow to facilitate healing, injuries to these spots can take months or even years to fully heal, and re-injury is very common.

SIR is a leader in administering revolutionary regenerative therapies to treat these conditions, several of which are referred to as stem cell therapies because they use human cells for the repair, regeneration or replacement of cells needed by the body. SIR also delivers traditional therapies for these conditions, when appropriate. After a thorough evaluation of the patient’s condition and degree of progression of the condition, Dr. Grubbs will consult with the patient regarding the best options for treatment, which could include autologous and amniotic stem cell therapies, platelet rich plasma, A2M protein, Synvisc or anesthetic/steroid injections.

Stem Cell Therapy for 
Joint, Tendon & Ligament Regeneration

A number of chronic health conditions today are benefiting from Autologous stem cell therapy, a new medical treatment that offers very promising results. Stem cell therapy is currently being used for joint, tendon and ligament regeneration, specifically to address the common conditions of osteoarthritis and tendinitis.

Autologous refers to the use of the patient’s own stem cells, rather than stem cells donated from another human being. When the stem cells are deployed back into the body, they can change into the type of tissue that is needed for healing. Stem cells can be incorporated into blood vessels, nerves, collagen, fat, muscle, cartilage and even bone. The natural healing functions within the body accelerate to produce a regenerative effect. This unique and effective form of regenerative medicine is being used by medical practitioners across the country. The therapy does not use the controversial embryonic stem cells, but rather cells that naturally occur in low concentrations in the human body and aid in tissue healing and regeneration every day.

There are many potential benefits from autologous stem cell therapy, and the “closed-system” method used at SIR to harvest the patient’s own stem cells minimizes the risks of side effects, such as infection rejection.

Amniotic Stem Cell Therapy

Amniotic stem cell therapy, also called amniotic tissue allograft, refers to the use of amniotic tissue that comes from the placenta of living, healthy donors who are prescreened during pregnancy, selected according to stringent donor suitability criteria, and have a full-term pregnancy and scheduled Caesarean section. The tissue is not the patient’s own but is an allograft, meaning that the cells are transplanted from a human donor to another human.

Why placental tissue? For over a century, placental tissue has been used as a biologic dressing in a broad range of therapeutic applications, and it has been generally recognized as a versatile wound covering. Placental tissue is an abundant source of collagen, other proteins, growth factors and cells that support the body’s natural regenerative healing process. Structural proteins and other characteristics of placental tissue used for human body regeneration have been shown to:
  • Support the repair and reconstruction of soft tissue.
  • Reduce inflammation and pain.
  • Promote cellular proliferation and new collagen formation.
  • Minimize scar tissue formation.
  • Resist adverse immune response in the human body.
Sarasota Interventional Radiology is on the cutting edge in the use amniotic tissue allograft for the treatment of osteoarthritis, tendinitis and soft tissue injuries. The donated cells are administered by injection at the site of the injury, after which the patient may feel some discomfort for several days. Because time is needed for the regeneration of new cells, improvement will be gradual and recovery time will depend on the patient’s specific condition.
