Autologous stem cells, which come from bone marrow aspirate concentrate from a patient’s own hip bone, are used to treat sports injuries and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. Professional athletes have used stem cells for years – now it’s your turn! If you are a patient with chronic low back pain from degenerative disc disease, joint pain or tendinitis, come in for an evaluation and see if you are a candidate for treatment with one of our regenerative medicine procedures (autologous stem cell concentrate, PRP or Fibrin Disc Sealant). You may also qualify to participate in our ongoing study.
