Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system – which normally protects the internal environment from foreign substances like bacteria and viruses – mistakenly attacks the joints. This creates inflammation that causes the tissue that lines the inside of joints (the synovium) to thicken, resulting in swelling and pain in and around the joints.
The cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unknown, though infectious agents such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi have long been implicated but nothing is certain. It is suspected that certain infections or factors in the environment might trigger the immune system in susceptible individuals. This immune system attacks the body’s own tissues, leading to inflammation of the joints.
There is no cure for arthritis except pain killers, physiotherapy or joint replacement surgery. Which has side effects and long recovery period. With the advent of stem cell therapy it has become possible to provided relief to these patients to lead a more normal life. We at Stem Cell Medicare use autologous stem cells derived from bone marrow or adipose tissue or both. The stem cells are deposited in knee joint or any other affected joint directly. The subsequent transplantations are done via intravenous drip.
Stem Cells Therapy: Stemcells Medicare Protocol
We at Stem Cell Medicare have been giving treatment to patients for orthopedic degenerative diseases with autologous mesenchymal stem cells derived from bone marrow, with great success. From half the bone marrow stem cells are separated by special machine and injected directly at the site of damage. The remaining bone marrow is sent to laboratory for amplification of stem cells and imparting cytoplasmic markers for making muskuloskeletal tissue progenitor cells. These progenitor cells are injected by intra venous drip.
We strive to design protocol for each patient to suit his needs. The technique is quite effective, safe and without any side effects.
