Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is an innovative regenerative treatment that supports your body’s own ability to heal and repair damaged tissue. Stem cell therapy is an effective, nonsurgical way to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and help your body recover from injuries.

Stem cells can also be used during surgery to reduce postoperative pain and swelling. 

Stem cell therapy harnesses the power of stem cells — undifferentiated cells that can mimic the functions of various types of tissue throughout the body. 

When injected into damaged tissue, stem cells stimulate the body’s healing process, allowing your body to repair damaged ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and other types of tissue. 

What conditions can stem cell therapy treat?

The podiatrists at Foot & Ankle Centers of Frisco & Plano use stem cell therapy to treat a variety of foot and ankle problems, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Peroneal tendinitis
  • Posterior tibial tendinitis
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Nerve injuries
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • Neuromas
  • Sesamoiditis
  • Sprained ankles

Stem cell therapy is a safe, effective treatment that can significantly reduce your pain and improve your functional recovery. It provides your body with the materials it needs to rebuild damaged tissue.

If you suffer from a painful foot or ankle problem, the team of podiatrists at Foot & Ankle Centers of Frisco & Plano can determine if stem cell therapy is right for you.

Is stem cell therapy right for me?

To see if you’re a good candidate for stem cell therapy, your podiatrist performs a thorough evaluation, including a physical exam and discussion of your medical history. They may conduct imaging tests, like an X-ray or MRI, to get a detailed look at your foot or ankle. 

Your doctor may suggest stem cell therapy if your condition hasn’t responded to traditional treatment. If you suffer from chronic pain or injuries that haven’t healed, stem cell therapy may be right for you. In some cases, your doctor can help you avoid surgery by using stem cells. 

What should I expect from the procedure?

This simple, in-office procedure doesn’t require much downtime. During your exam, your doctor checks for tenderness, swelling, and other abnormalities to determine the location of your injury. They then inject the stem cells directly into the damaged tissue. 

After the procedure, you can comfortably return home. Most people return to their normal activities in just a few days. To see if stem cell therapy is right for you, call the office or book an appointment online today.
