Stem Cell Therapy for Hip & Things – AVN & Osteonecrosis

Updated September 01, 2020 – The Regenerative Centers’ Orthopedic protocol offers a safe and effective alternative to hip replacement surgery and to treat degenerative hip conditions, injuries & arthritis. Our non-surgical treatment is a true breakthrough for millions of men and women needlessly suffering from chronic hip pain due to a variety of reasons such as:arthritic-hip-joint

Safe Alternative to Hip Surgery

Our hip and shoulder stem cell therapies are combined with enriched blood PRP (platelet rich plasma) and growth factors to allow an effective and 100% non-surgical solution for our patients with cartilage damageDDD, Spinal Injuries or who may be considering hip replacement surgery or hip resurfacing to try to resolve the chronic hip pain.[1] Our treatment protocol is ideal for mild and moderate cases of ligament, cartilage damage and for those that want to regenerate/reverse hip problems without surgery using enriched lab concentrated mesenchymal cell injections using the patient’s own stem cells (autologous – for mild conditions ) or immunosystem matched allogeneic stem cells ( for moderate to severe conditions.) This unique protocol allows our orthopedic stem cell doctors to target the problem at the root and treat it using enriched tissue manipulation techniques that allow treated arthritic knees and hips to naturally heal itself without need for invasive surgery.[2]

Hip surgeries such as replacement and resurfacing are typically very invasive procedures and often lead to months of discomfort and pain post-surgery and especially during rehabilitation needed to redevelop the patients’ strength and increase the mobility of the hip joints.[3]

Our orthopedic Hip Cell Therapy works by targeting the areas of arthritis or injury with both clinical-grade stem cells and ( PrP ) platelet-rich plasma. The cultured stem cells and paracrine cell signaling act as a biological seed with PRP acting as the fertilizer to fortify the cells and helps quickly heal the areas of distress. Our unique 2-week treatment course uses PRP with cell-specific growth factors and rich platelets found in the blood circulatory system. Unlike most 1 day treatments, these additional steps in our therapy help boost cell signals while simultaneously providing nourishment for the orthopedic stem cells to flourish for multiple cycles and help develop the introduced cells into new and healthy joints, tendons and ligaments. The Regeneration Center uses a proprietary closed-system for MSC+ cell culturing to help triggers rapid stem cell development.

Regenerative medicine might not be the final answer for all patients with degenerative hips and neuropathy, however, most cases patients treated with MSC+ stem cells are successful, and help our patients avoid the pain, downtime, disability and most importantly risk that is associated with a major surgery like total hip replacement. Our treatment is minimally invasive and there is very little recovery time needed after treatment. Most patients usually only report slight soreness in the treated areas with minimal bruising for 24-48 hours post-therapy.  Our center has never had any patients experience adverse effects as all cells are tested and certified before implantation. After treatment, patients are encouraged to start regular hip rehabilitation to help re-strengthen the hip joints back to proper function. Hip stem cell treatments are very safe, and for severe cases, can also be repeated after 6-12 months (if necessary) to achieve optimal results. For patients with severe hip damage, stem cells alone might not be sufficient. For severe cases, we offer the world’s first combo-treatment that combines micro-surgery with stem cells (after surgery) to expedite and normalize the healing process with minimal scarring.

TREATMENT PRECAUTIONS & RISKS
Stem Cell Therapy for hip injuries and hip arthritis are not appropriate for all cases. Patients without a confirmed diagnosis, unidentifiable tissue damage, severe comorbidities, travel limitations or severe structural problems will not qualify for the 2-3 week treatment in Bangkok.

Using Stem Cells for Hip Joint Repair – Overview


Number of Cell Infusions for Hip arthritis: 2-8 Injections of expanded Mesenchymal “MSC+” Cells with Orthoregen growth factors for increasing formation of fibrocartilage fibers & differentiated scaffolds.

Type of Cells Used and Injection Locations: For most patients, Our protocol will use enriched Mesenchymal cells that are autologous (from the patient) Peripheral Blood or Adipose Tissue derived. For older patients or people with multiple conditions and/or severe tissue degeneration, we require multiple delivery points of MSC+ enhanced cells. The MSC+ cell therapy protocol does not require surgery and can be delivered through a guided radio-scanner (when necessary) or more commonly through an Intravenous Drip “IV Drips”, Direct injection and/or Intrathecally.

Rehabilitation Options Post Treatment: Physical Rehabilitation therapy after treatment is strongly recommended after treatment finished and can be done in Thailand or upon return to your home. We have complete physical rehab packages that are optional depending on your travel/time constraints.Our rehabilitation program is available upon request for 2-3 hours per day and up to 5 days per week. Medical visas and/or hotel accommodations for the patient and family can also be provided upon request.

Total Treatment Length: estimated treatment time for stem cell hip joint repair is 2-3 weeks in Bangkok (depending on the severity of the underlying injury)

Guidelines for treating Hip Osteoarthritis with Stem Cells

Due to the varying degrees of injuries our orthopedic team will need to conduct a medical review for all potential patients. This can be done online using the patient’s current medical records such as Hip MRI Scan along with reports from the patients’ orthopedic doctors in their home country. Once the review is complete we can know for certain if the patient is a candidate and provide a detailed treatment plan that will include the exact total number nights required at the Regen Center along with fixed and total medical-related costs for the entire treatment.

Looking to Relieve Hip Pain Naturally?

The Regeneration Center offers patients a cohesive & comprehensive approach to hip joint injuries that yield the greatest results possible without the risks of surgery. We have treated professional athletes to average elderly patients who needlessly suffered through decades of chronic hip joint pain. If you or a loved one is suffering from a degenerative hip condition, chronic hip pain or if you have any difficulty standing up or walking stairs you may be a candidate for our procedure.
