Louisville orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine doctor Stacie Grossfeld MD is now offering Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® to patients in her Louisville, Kentucky office. This cutting edge treatment is used to provide dramatic pain relief for many common medical conditions including osteoarthritis, knee pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis and much more.
Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® is part of a broader trend toward orthobiologic medicine. Orthobiologics are substances found naturally in the human body used to help heal injuries and conditions. Other examples of orthobiologics including: hyaluronic acid injections and platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections.
As a double board certified orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine physician, Dr. Grossfeld explains her interest in offering Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® to patients:
“As an orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine physician, I’m very focused on helping my patients heal as quickly and effectively as possible so that they can get back to the activities they enjoy. I’m always learning about the newest treatments available so that I can offer the best that medicine has to offer. Stem cell injections are the latest example of this … a treatment that uses natural bodily substances to offer pain relief through actual healing, rather than just masking pain and injury.”
Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® is a safe and effective treatment to help the body help itself. It’s typically administered during a normal office visit, through a single injection.
Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® May Help the Following Conditions
Patients have reported improved pain relief and repair for the following conditions:
- Joint injuries
- Knee pain, shoulder pain, hip pain
- Pain in the wrists, fingers, ankles and toes
- Bone fractures that are resistant to healing
- Soft tissue injuries like plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, hamstring tears and rotator cuff
- Spinal injuries causing neck pain, mid and lower back pain, and sacroiliac joint pain
Following a stem cell injection, patients are typically able to return to everyday, non-high impact activities within 24 to 48 hours.
Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy® is safe and effective, helping the body boost its ability to heal itself. It is administered through a single injection of Human Amniotic Fluid (AF).
What is an Amniotic Fluid Injection (AF)?
Amniotic Fluid is acellular and contains a rich mixture of collagens, cytokines, elastins and growth factors that creates an extra-cellular matrix which supports healing and has the potential to reduce scarring and inflammation. AF is filled with growth factors which assist the body in tissue repair, reducing pain and inflammation and contributing to the regeneration and reconstruction of injured tissue.
What benefits does Stem Cell Recruitment® Injections offer?
- Powerful Treatment: Helps to relieve pain associated with joints, soft tissue and spinal injuries.
- Convenient & Painless: 15-minute in office, single injection.
- All Natural & Drug-free: Contains a large concentration of Growth Factors, including bFGF “Basic fibroblast growth factor”—this is a signaling protein encoded by a gene that assists in cell growth and maturation, and tissue repair
- Quick & Reduced Recovery Time: Return to everyday, low impact activities.
- Safe, Non-steroidal Alternative to Surgery: Helps recruit your body’s stem cells and healing components to reconstruct and regenerate the injured tissue that is causing pain.
Patients have reported pain relief from the following:
- Spinal injuries: neck pain, mid or lower back pain, sacroiliac joints
- Joint Injuries: knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, wrists, ankles, fingers and toes
- Soft tissue injuries: plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, rotator cuff syndrome
How does amniotic fluid injections work?
Amniotic Fluid takes advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself. With an amniotic fluid injection, your physician injects the amniotic fluid from donated amniotic tissue into your body. The amniotic fluid limits the expression of inflammatory cytokines and contains large amounts of hyaluronic acid that entrap inflammatory cells. Amniotic fluid goes far beyond the benefits of standard “injection therapy.”
While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief, amniotic fluid helps modulate healing by promoting reconstruction rather than scar tissue formation. The growth factors in the amniotic fluid may recruit your body’s own stem cells, directly mitigating the repair and regeneration of healthy tissue. Additionally, amniotic fluid injections contain hyaluronic acid, helping to lubricate joints and tendons, easing the pain and helping restore mobility.
Are Stem Cell Recruitment® Injections covered by insurance?
Yes, amniotic fluid injections are covered by insurances. Consult your physician to see if you are covered.
