ELBOW AND HAND PROBLEMS

ELBOW AND HAND PROBLEMS

Elbow and Hand problems from arthritis of joints of the upper extremity is a form of degenerative joint disease that disables millions of Americans. Certain types of elbow and wrist joint problems including certain tendon problems and ligamentous injuries may not be amenable to cell therapy. It is important to evaluate each individual case to assess likelihood of success with attempting regenerative therapy. We have developed a degenerative joint disease SVF deployment protocol that attempts to exploit the anti-inflammatory and healing effects of SVF (rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors). SVF is injected using local anesthesia into the affected joint and radiographic imaging techniques are often used to ensure accuracy. This is all done as an outpatient at the time of SVF harvesting and procurement. The entire procedure takes approximately 3 hours.
