Stem Cell Injection Helps Patient Recover from Achilles Tendon Tear

In this week’s blog, we sat down with former patient Rhonda Windhorst. Rhonda recently had a 50% Achilles tendon tear and had previously seen Dr. Grossfeld for arthritis in the knee. After participating in Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy, Rhonda has experienced a great amount of improvement.

How did you come to learn about stem cell injections and how they might help you?

I saw the pamphlets in her office and decided to discuss them with Dr. Grossfield. After doing some research, and wearing a boot for many months, it was either a stem cell injection or surgery. After thinking it over with my husband and reading about a lot of the positive results, we decided it would be worth it.

What Was The Process Like?

The injection itself was quick and painless. There was moderate pain for about 45 minutes after, but it went away quickly.

Would You Recommend Stem Cell Recruitment?

Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy was definitely the correct choice for me, I would recommend trying the injection over surgery!

Learn more about Stem Cells

Stem cells have been known to revitalize the Achilles tendon and can even encourage the healing of an already surgically repaired tendon. This is because stem cells have over 200 various growth factors with anti-inflammatory effects. These growth factors contain proteins or enzymes that can reduce inflammation and pain. They take advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself by helping the body’s own stem cells reconstruct and regenerate injured tissues causing pain

Dr. Grossfeld has over 25 years of experience in orthopedic medicine and is a double board-certified orthopedic surgeon. To get more information about stem cells as a treatment option, call 502-212-2663 to make an appointment today.
