How is stem cell therapy used in orthopedic care?

Your body’s natural healing process depends on the adult stem cells living in your body. After suffering an orthopedic injury or developing a musculoskeletal disease, adult stem cells travel to the injured tissues.

The stem cells self-replicate, producing new cells that mature into the cells needed for healing orthopedic conditions, including regenerating muscles, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, bones, connective tissues, and skin.

Stem cell therapy also reduces inflammation and triggers the growth of new blood vessels and nerves.

When would I need stem cell therapy for orthopedic care?

Your Stem Cell Center of Texas provider speeds healing by giving you an injection of concentrated stem cells.

Accelerating the healing process reduces your pain and prevents excessive scar tissue from developing. Too much scar tissue reduces the tissue’s strength after it heals, which may limit your activities.

Stem cell therapy can treat orthopedic conditions like:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendinitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Joint injuries
  • Meniscus tears
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
  • Ligament, tendon, and muscle injuries


Stem cell therapy is effective against most conditions causing joint pain. Boosting the number of stem cells benefits severe injuries and injured tissues with a poor blood supply, like many ligaments and some cartilage.

What happens during stem cell therapy for orthopedic care?

Your provider determines if you’re a good candidate for stem cell therapy by reviewing your medical history and symptoms and completing a thorough physical exam. If they recommend a stem cell injection, and you decide to have the procedure, they begin by harvesting your adult stem cells.

Your bone marrow is the best source of the adult stem cells needed  (mesenchymal stem cells) for orthopedic care. To harvest these cells, your provider uses a local anesthetic, inserts a hollow needle into your hip bone, and draws bone marrow into the needle.

Alternatively, your provider can use liposuction to harvest the mesenchymal stem cells in your body fat. After obtaining the tissue sample, they concentrate the stem cells and use real-time imaging to inject them into the area of your orthopedic injury or condition.
