Leading Edge Medicine
At Pain Specialists of Austin, we are on the leading edge of regenerative medicine. Our providers recently attended a medical symposium to discuss the enhancement of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) treatments. MSC’s are unique cells because they are not specialized for one particular purpose. Known as undifferentiated, they are more like living biological plastics that can become other specialized forms of cells such as bone, cartilage, or connective tissues, as needed.
They has also participated in sophisticated new methods of aspirating bone marrow components and blood proteins. These methods allow us to concentrate the beneficial proteins to induce a healing cascade. Research has shown that the greater the concentration of proteins and stem cells, the more likely advanced healing is to take place.
MSC’s are the primary stem cells used to treat a wide array of conditions and tissue disorders, including autoimmune diseases such as arthritis, and Lupus. When certain proteins are extracted from the patient’s own blood or bone marrow, and then concentrated, they become a vitally effective tool for reducing inflammation and pain.
At the medical symposium, our doctors discussed the current landscape of regenerative medicine in depth, as well as sophisticated techniques on delivering stem cells to maximize their overall effectiveness. They were also trained on new devices that can help them better diagnose joint disorders of the knee, elbow, shoulder and ankle, right in the office, without having to send the patient for an MRI.
