Dr. Christopher Betz Now Offering Stem Cell Treatments to Aid in HealingFebruary 5, 2021
Dr. Christopher Betz is Starling’s new orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist. He offers the latest advancements in orthopaedic care. One of the newest treatment options is the injection of stem cells to advance the healing of joints, tendons, and ligaments. The treatment involves the injection of an allograft that is derived from amniotic fluid within the placenta. Amniotic fluid has a high concentration of stem cells and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid helps to lubricate joints and tendons, which can reduce pain and help restore mobility. Amniotic fluid injections also stimulate tissue and cartilage growth and stem cell activity, while naturally reducing inflammation.
Stem cell therapy can advance soft tissue repair, replacement, and reconstruction. This can be extremely beneficial in treating a wide range of issues affecting the shoulders, hips, and knees including:
- Sports injuries
- Joint pain
- Muscle & meniscus tears
- Wound care
Amniotic stem cell therapy is a very safe and effective treatment. The injection can be done right in the office. Stem cell therapy is minimally invasive, leaves no obvious scars, and does not require a long recovery time. There is no risk of rejection in the patient.
