How Stem Cells Work
The body naturally works to heal its injuries with its own stem cells all the time. As the body ages, it cannot always produce enough stem cells at the point of an injury to completely heal it. Such is the case with arthritis. But stem cells injected into the arthritic joint can boost the body’s natural repair mechanism.
For treating orthopedic conditions, Dr. Kellum uses stem cells harvested from bone marrow in your own body for the injections. A lab technician processes the stem cells in the sophisticated, onsite lab to prepare the proper dosage needed. Then Dr. Kellum uses a C-arm fluoroscope and ultrasound to inject the stem cells deep inside the joint.
