Don’t Let Arthritis Pain Weigh You Down

Are you suffering from chronic pain caused by arthritis in your hip, knee, ankle, or shoulder? You don’t have to live in pain. Stem Cell Therapy now offered at Centric Health Surgical Centre Toronto may help you to live your best life and free you of the pain that weighs you down.

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem Cell Therapy is the use of stem cells to prevent or treat a condition. One of the most common stem cell therapies is bone marrow transplant or bone marrow therapy. At Centric Health Surgical Centre Toronto, our surgeons use Harvest Tech for all our bone marrow therapy procedures.

Bone marrow is the spongy substance found at the center of bones. It works to create the blood cells that your body needs in order to function properly. Bone marrow also contains a broad range of stem cells. These stem cells can be used to support the repair or growth of muscle, cartilage, bone, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue. This type of therapy treatment has the potential to treat a number of conditions because stem cells can easily transform into a number of different kinds of cells.

Typically, bone marrow is removed using a procedure that is less invasive than a bone graft. Often, bone marrow is taken from the pelvis but can be taken from other areas as well. Using the Harvest system, the bone marrow is removed, then spun in a centrifuge, which isolates and concentrates the stem cells found in the bone marrow. These stem cells are then delivered to the affected sites in your body. Since the procedure uses a patient’s own bone marrow, there is no risk of rejection as there would be with a donor.

The benefit of Harvest Tech is that it consistently creates a purified, stem-cell-rich product. Harvest Tech offers a higher yield and concentration of stem cells as compared to other methods available, as shown by a number of studies.

While this therapy is innovative and cutting edge in many ways, it is also a proven procedure, used throughout Canada and the United States for many years on thousands of patients at well respected institutions such as the Mayo and Cleveland Clinics.

Why Should You Consider Stem Cell Therapy

If you are suffering from arthritis in your ankle, hip, knee, or shoulder, Stem Cell Therapy may help to alleviate the daily pain with which you currently live.

Patients who have arthritis and have exhausted other treatment options are generally good candidates for stem cell therapy. Stem cell therapy seems to work best on patients whose joints are only affected by osteoarthritis, not multiple conditions.

Benefits of getting a Stem Cell procedure at Centric Health

  1. Centric Health is a hospital, licensed with the Ministry of Health. This means your procedure will be done in a safe, sterile private hospital setting where you will receive comprehensive, compassionate care. This is in contrast to receiving a procedure in a clinic or a practitioner’s office.
  2. Our surgeons, including Dr. Khalid Syed is a respected orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in arthritis of the hip, knees and shoulder. He has done extensive research in his field and would be happy to share his knowledge with you during your consultation.
  3. Consider the benefits of living pain free for the cost of what you might spend on a family vacation or the down payment for a new car; instead get the joy of living without pain. There are no hidden costs or fees.

Stem Cell Therapy via Harvest Tech is another tool for physicians to use when considering treatment options for those dealing with arthritic pain and may not yet be a candidate for joint replacement.

A life free of pain may be a simple procedure away. Don’t wait! Call 1-888-857-6069 today to book your initial consultation with a surgeon.
