Stem Cell Therapy

They are derived products offer great promise for new medical treatments.


They are a certain type of cells in the body from which specialty cells develop. These include muscle, brain, ligament, tendon, bone, cartilage, and more, or they become new stem cells.

Stem cells are the body’s raw materials — cells from which all other cells with specialized functions are generated. Under the right conditions in the body or a laboratory, stem cells divide to form more cells called daughter cells. Stem cell therapy, also known as regenerative medicine, promotes the repair response of diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissue using stem cells or their derivatives. It is the next chapter in organ transplantation and uses cells instead of donor organs, which are limited in supply.

Stem cell therapy is most commonly used for treating the following conditions:

  • Achilles Tendinosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Ligament Sprain of the Ankle
  • Ankle Tendon Tear
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Bunions
  • Sports Injuries

One of the main reasons why Stem Cell Therapy has become a popular alternative to foot and ankle surgery is the quick and simple recovery. Stem cell therapy is an outpatient procedure. After harvesting the stem cells, the procedure takes only a few hours to complete.

After the injection of stem cells, the recovery time may differ from patient to patient. In general, the majority of patients are able to walk within 24 hours. There may be soreness in treated tissues and joints for a few days. Excessive stress on the treated area due to high-impact activities such as running, jumping or squatting, for example, should be avoided for two to three months. Patients should begin to notice improvements within a few weeks after the injection. Stem cells will then gradually heal the damaged areas, allowing patients to return to their normal activities within two to three months.

Most stem cell therapy using adult stem cells is considered safe because the stem cells are collected from the patient, minimizing the risk of an unwanted reaction. The most common side effects are temporary swelling and pain.

While most stem cell therapy for arthritis is considered safe, it does carry the same risks as any other medical procedure, such as a small risk of infection. Risk may be increased if:

  • A different type of stem cell is used
  • The stem cells are cultured (taken from the patient and grown in the lab over time)
  • The stem cells are mixed with other chemicals

Some research suggests stem cell therapy engaging in these kinds of practices may elevate the risk of tumors.

In stem cell transplants, stem cells replace cells damaged by chemotherapy or disease or serve as a way for the donor’s immune system to fight some types of cancer and blood-related diseases, such as leukemia, lymphoma, neuroblastoma and multiple myeloma. These transplants use adult stem cells or umbilical cord blood.
