Native BMC Stem Cell Treatments For Joint Disorders Now In Bellevue, WA

Nov 17, 2023

Interventional Orthopedics of Washington (425-326-1665) can now treat a wide range of joint and cartilage disorders using state-of-the-art native stem cell treatments.

If you suffer from chronic joint pain or a cartilage disease, you may have been led to believe that orthopedic surgery is the only path to recovery - along with the months of pain and recovery that would follow such a procedure. However, with recent advances in stem cell research in mind, that is no longer the truth.

In fact, developments in bone marrow concentrates, or BMCs, now make it possible for qualifying patients to receive native stem cell treatment for various joint disorders, which may allow you to avoid invasive surgeries altogether.

To make this treatment possible for more patients than ever, Interventional Orthopedics of Washington is now offering localized BMC injections for all eligible patients.

Announcing the launch of the treatment, head doctor Otoño Silva highlighted the role of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and their ability to stimulate other cells to accelerate healing in a non-invasive way.

What is MSC treatment?

Mesenchymal cells are a type of specialized stem cell that can transform into cells of the tendons, ligaments, muscles, and bones. They also contain essential proteins and growth factors that reduce pain, heal injury, and strengthen joints. With regular treatments, BMC therapy can lead to better mobility and improved quality of life, explains Dr. Silva.

The anti-inflammatory agents in stem cells prevent overreaction to the pain caused by osteoarthritis or cartilage disease. The growth factors stimulate the body's healing and repair processes, improving wound healing and cartilage function.

Who can get MSC injections?

The new therapy at Interventional Orthopedics of Washington is recommended for those who suffer from joint, bone, or cartilage diseases, back or neck pain, and common sports injuries such as ACL or Meniscus tears. The therapy may reduce the need for surgery, which would otherwise require a more extended downtime and may result in various complications. It also minimizes the need for steroid injections, which can negatively affect immunity and increase infection risk in the long run.

The clinic uses ultrasound and X-ray guidance during the procedure to ensure that the stem cells are precisely delivered to the affected area. Depending on the extent of the injury, you may need to receive several stem cell injections over a few months.
