Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine available at Back to Basics Medical Practice PLLC. The team uses donated mesenchymal stem cells to regenerate new cells within your body naturally. PRP uses platelets from your blood to enhance healing and relieve pain without surgery.

Because stem cell therapy and PRP injections are noninvasive, they are popular alternatives to surgery and other invasive procedures. Dr. Patterson has utilized stem cell treatments for over two years.

What are the benefits of stem cell therapy?

Choosing a series of stem cell or PRP injections at Back to Basics Medical Practice PLLC can help you reap the following benefits

  • Improved arthritis symptoms
  • Reduced hair loss
  • Skin revitalization
  • Less chronic pain
  • Enhanced healing
  • Less inflammation
  • Better range of motion and mobility

Because stem cell therapy and PRP injections are noninvasive, there’s no downtime associated with these procedures.

Is stem cell therapy right for me?

To determine if stem cell therapy is the right procedure for you, Dr. Patterson reviews your medical history and discusses your symptoms. He completes a physical exam and might utilize blood tests and imaging procedures, such as X-rays or MRIs, to diagnose your condition.

What should I expect during treatment?

Prior to stem cell treatment, the Back to Basics Medical Practice PLLC team evaluates your vital signs. If you require PRP injections, your provider takes a blood sample from your arm and spins it in a centrifuge to extract PRP from the rest of your blood. 

Dr. Patterson injects stem cells or PRP into areas of your body that are injured, diseased, aging, painful, or inflamed. During hair restoration, he injects stem cells or PRP into specific areas of your scalp to stimulate hair growth naturally.

What happens after stem cell therapy?

After regenerative medicine treatment at Back to Basics Medical Practice PLLC, you might experience slight redness or swelling at the injection site. You can resume normal activities right away because there's no downtime associated with the procedure. Dr. Patterson might recommend multiple treatments to help you achieve optimal results.

Don’t undergo invasive procedures when stem cell therapy and PRP are simple, effective, natural alternatives. Schedule an appointment with Back to Basics Medical Practice PLLC over the phone or online to learn more.
