Stem cell therapy: new era in orthopedic medicine.Dr. Wagner is, without question, the leader in the field of Regenerative Medicine, here in the Northwest. Each Year, Dr. Wagner provides stem cell procedures and PRP injections for hundreds of his patients, for conditions such as osteoarthritis and various tendon injuries, witnessing the outstanding results first-hand. At Seattle Sports & Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Wagner performs both PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and Stem Cell Therapies. By using only stem cells from the patient’s own body, the patient receives the safest and most effective treatment, dramatically decreasing any chance of adverse effects. This is often referred to as “autologous,” meaning cells or tissue removed from the same individual that is receiving the treatment.
Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Regenerative Medicine at Seattle Sports & Regenerative Medicine includes the collection and use of therapeutic stem cells to regrow, repair, or replace damaged or diseased tissue within the musculoskeletal system, including: shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles.
As your physician, Dr. Wagner is committed to providing the highest level of care, priding himself on staying connected to the ever-changing medical community and the most advanced medical technology available. It is his promise, as your physician, to responsibly provide the most progressive treatments, as long as he is completely confident that they are safe and beneficial for his patients.
"New hope for osteoarthritis sufferers...
You no longer have to suffer disabling joint pain."
Stem cell therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are both offered to alleviate pain and repair injury in the body’s tendons and joints, proving to be very effective in such conditions as osteoarthritis, tendon injuries, meniscus and labrum tears. Over 5 million stem cell procedures for osteoarthritis have been performed in the United States with no significant adverse effects reported.
We understand that the use of stem cells may sound complex, however, stem cell therapy is just the opposite. It is a simple procedure, performed in our office during a visit lasting approximately 90 minutes. If you have questions or would like a consultation with Dr. Wagner to learn if you are a candidate for stem cell therapy, please contact Seattle Sports and Regenerative Medicine.
When performing stem cell therapy, Dr. Wagner treats each patient as an individual, treating that patient with therapy specific to his or her medical needs. The three components of stem cell therapy that may be used together in our office are:
|Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP):||This is a venous blood draw (60mL)|
|Bone Marrow Aspiration Concentrate:||Drawn from the Posterior Iliac Crest (hip) for the collection of BMAC Stem Cells (30mL-120mL)|
|Adipose Tissue Aspiration (Fat Cells):||This tissue is rich in stem cells and drawn from the flank area (20mL-30mL)|
|Large joints consist of:||Ankles, knees, elbows, hips and shoulders|
|Small joints consist of:||Thumb joint (1st CMC), Great toe joint (1st MTP), Various joints of the mid foot and wrist|
