The Discseel® Procedure

If you are like most back pain sufferers, you are willing to try anything to get your pain-free life back. However, not all treatment options are the same.

Stem Cell Therapy

Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC) therapy uses the body’s own stem cells to treat all types of degenerative conditions. It is a natural, safe alternative to steroids and often to more invasive surgery. MSCs represent a paradigm shift in treating musculoskeletal injuries and neurological conditions. They are a breakthrough, nonsurgical treatment option for individuals suffering from low back pain, joint pain or other soft tissue injuries. Read more

The Phoenix resident didn’t feel comfortable from the start. “I assumed they must have touched the muscle,” she said. “Nothing showed up in the MR, X-rays, or anything. After they let me go at the hospital, it still hurt.”  Read more

Are You a Candidate for Regenerative Medicine?


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 Repair). You may also qualify to participate in our ongoing study.
