The CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/) indicates that there are over 32.5 million people suffering from osteoarthritis in the United States alone, and unfortunately, many doctors will recommend surgery to most of those people to try and fix the problem.
Many patients experiencing osteoarthritis have turned to surgery as a potential solution for their debilitating pain without fully understanding the risks involved.
There are many negative side effects that surgery can have on the body, including:
- Blood clots in a vein
- Bleeding or infection
- Bowel obstruction caused by scar tissue
- Leakage of fluid
- Reaction to anesthesia
- Nausea and vomiting
- Band slippage
Osteoarthritis affects many people worldwide and is caused by a variety of factors that can include age, health, past injuries, normal wear, and family history. Pain from arthritis can be experienced in the knees, back, shoulders, wrists or neck, making it difficult for many people to go about their normal everyday routine.
Thankfully, there is a successful, non-surgical treatment option available that gets to the root cause of osteoarthritis pain in order to provide long-lasting relief.
Cell-based Regeneration Therapy for Osteoarthritis
Cell-based Regeneration Therapy is a safe, non-surgical treatment that utilizes regenerative cells obtained from the Wharton’s jelly of umbilical cord tissue to heal osteoarthritis pain at the source. These cells are donated from prescreened, consenting mothers after a C-section birth.
They contain a multitude of healing properties, including:
- Mesenchymal cells
- Growth factors
These naturally-occurring healing components are injected directly into the damaged area, resulting in tissue regeneration and pain relief with little to no risk of rejection, as the cells are so new they haven’t had time to develop an immune system.
