Non-surgical stem cells repair knees, shoulders within 15 minutes

SPONSORED

Knee pain suffers have another option besides surgery or traditional cortisone injections to relieve their knee pain.  Stem cell therapy is available which treats pain by actually regenerating knee tissue.

            This cutting edge FDA-approved treatment can also work on shoulders, hips, elbows, backs plus various injuries.

            Dr. Frank Ostir, director, Ostir Physical Medicine in Joliet, explains that within 15 minutes, a patient with arthritic knees or partially torn shoulder rotator cuffs can be injected with amniotic (not embryonic) stem cells, and begin the healing process that’s more than three times faster than standardized care.

            “There are 30 times more stem cells per volume in amniotic stem cells, which have anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, plus human growth factors.  They are derived from caesarian section deliveries.  They speed up the body’s own healing abilities, with no risk of tissue rejection,” says Ostir.

            The stem cells double every 36 hours, and can regenerate bone; muscle; and connective, heart, and lung tissues.

            Ostir adds, “Some patients have been told they’re not candidates for surgery, or need to wait a few years for their joint replacement.  They explore regenerative medicine, and see results within the first two months following treatment.  About 80 percent of healing occurs then, due to the rate of stem cells replicating.

            “Healing continues, and we follow up with the patient.  More than 10,000 of these minimally invasive procedures have been performed in the U.S.  There are no toxic substances or side effects to this treatment that gives the best outcome in the shortest amount of time.”

            He says, “Our patients say the results are fantastic.  In time, it’s our hope that this truly amazing therapy will eliminate the need for drugs or surgery.”

            Ostir has practiced in Joliet for more than 25 years.  His rehabilitation clinic has evolved into a medically integrated facility, treating problems from knee pain to diabetes.
