Stem Cell Therapy

New & Advanced Treatment Options for Pain Management

At Pain Medicine Group, we offer a number of exciting new treatment options, including cutting-edge technology such as stem cell and platelet-rich therapies. These treatment options allow our patients to regain function and quality of life through recent breakthroughs in research. They also allow for the treatment of many pain-related conditions hereto refractory to traditional medical treatment.

Stem cell and platelet-rich therapies are minimally invasive treatment options which have shown significant benefit in recent studies in the treatment of bone and muscle-related issues. Our Fort Myers pain management physicians are dedicated to providing you with relief and we are proud to be at the forefront of this exciting new frontier in medical technology.

  • We are pleased to offer the following treatment options:
  • Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): Platelet Rich Plasma has shown to be of significant benefit in the healing of bone and soft tissue injuries. It has proven very effective, particularly in osteoarthritis and joint pain in those patients who are seeking to avoid surgery or who are seeking a minimally invasive approach to treatment.
  • Stem Cell Therapy: The use of stem cells is essentially the healing of the patient’s own body via natural cells that can morph into the type of cells required for healing. Stem cell injections allow for regeneration of various disease processes such as cartilage tears, bony osteoarthritis, and rotator cuff tears. These were traditionally treated by surgery.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections

How does PRP therapy work?

Platelet Rich Therapy is a treatment option in which the patient’s own blood is used to regenerate injured structures. A small amount of your blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge that separates the platelets from the other parts of the blood. The blood is centrifuged in order to extract and maximize the elements which stimulate healing, then those elements are reintroduced into the injured areas. The concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is injected into the injured area, jump-starting the body’s natural healing process.

Platelets are those regenerative elements which work to reactivate the body’s own healing process. Platelets have a high concentration of bioactive proteins which have been shown to accelerate tissue repair. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection and a very low risk of an allergic reaction.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cells therapy is a new therapy introduced to treat common bone, joint, and cartilage-related degenerative disease. Because stem cell therapy can be applied to such a wide variety of injuries such as low back, shoulder, knee, and hip issues, the potential for its use is amazing. Stem cells are essentially immature cells which can develop into the healing cells necessary for regeneration when they are injected into that environment. By placing these cells into the area of injury, we allow for the body to heal itself naturally. The procedure itself includes the injection of stem cells, in conjunction with PRP, into an area which in turn promotes tissue repair. Because it is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive treatment that uses your own blood, it is an easy and safe in-office procedure.

PRP and Stem Cell Therapy:

What can it be used for?

PRP and stem cell therapy can be used for a variety of medical treatments, including low back pain, osteoarthritis, tendinitis, avascular necrosis, rotator cuff tears, and many more.

How long does the procedure take?

The entire procedure takes approximately about half an hour from start to finish, including recovery time. There is no downtime and patients can return to their normal activities after the procedure.

How often does the procedure need to be done?

How often the procedure is done will vary from patient to patient. Depending on the patient it can take from anywhere from 1-3 injections.
