STEM CELL THERAPY
We have all heard that stem cell therapy is a promising new technique that many patients report has had enormous benefit in relieving low back pain or pain in knees or other joints.
What Do I Look for in a Stem Cell Clinic?
They're NOT All Alike!
1. Bone Marrow, Not Fat for Stem Cells.
Dr. Cosgrove uses bone marrow cells, not fat. That’s how they do it at Mayo Clinic. That’s how they do it at Cleveland Clinic. And that’s how we do it here. Bone marrow aspirate is one of the primary ways the FDA recommends stem cell treatments be done for joints and spine's.
We use conscious sedation, so you’re “out” for a few minutes. The “harvest” of stem cells is virtually pain free. There are no large bruises like one gets with harvest from fat. We have an anesthesiologist, and we are certified by IMQ to use sedation medications.
3. CT-Guided Injection
We do this with a photograph of needle placement so we all know exactly where it went, accurate to within one millimeter. Blind injection or ultrasound is not in the same league. Ask a radiologist.
4. Research, and counting the cells.
Dr. Cosgrove uses a dedicated laboratory on site with a hood, and a cell counting technique that costs tens of thousands of dollars, but delivers accurate information: how many cells, how many platelets? How many monocytes? It matters. We want to know exactly.
The Best Part?
You can save on average over $3,000. We charge $6900*. That includes CT guided injections* and includes comfort with conscious sedation and complete monitoring. Many facilities will charge over $10,000 without the added comfort or accuracy in treatment administration.
