Stem Cell Therapy

foot cortisoneDepending on the nature of the injury or condition, certain foot and ankle conditions can be treated with stem cell therapy. These can include arthritis, ligament sprains or tears, Achilles tendinitis, and a myriad of other conditions.

In stem cell therapy, stem cells are withdrawn from the bone marrow and concentrated before being re-injected directly into the injured tissues of the foot or ankle. The stem cells then enhance the natural repair process of the injured tendons, ligaments, or arthritic joints.

Patients who have undergone stem cell therapy are typically able to return to normal activity much faster than those who have undergone invasive surgery.
