Stem Cell Injections
Stem cells can be harvested by Dr. Herzog from your bone marrow during your office visit. The cells that are removed can be injected into an arthritic joint or an area of tendonitis. This procedure is generally reserved for patients who have not responded 100% to PRP injections.
Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that can differentiate into specialized cells and can divide (through mitosis) to produce more stem cells. They are found in multicellular organisms. They work as master cells to regenerate cells in the body such as cartilage in the joints or facilitate the regeneration of tissue so that a torn rotator cuff can heal.
