SpineCenterAtlanta (SCA), a comprehensive spine care facility of excellence, has launched their stem cell/regenerative medicine program – the Ortho Stem Cell Atlanta, in Atlanta, Georgia, one of the Southeast’s most thriving and accessible cities . The SCA state of-the-art surgery center and boutique style wellness environment will augment the cutting edge therapies offered by OrthoStemCellAtlanta in this rapidly emerging field.
Stem Cell Therapy has been a field of research since the 1950’s and continues to have a robust research and clinical trial community worldwide. SCA collaborates with Dr. Bob Guldberg, professor and Executive Director of the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience at the Georgia Institute of Technology, who has assisted in the development of a regenerative therapy program that understands the science behind the treatments. OrthoStemCellAtlanta (OSCA) will conduct research studies and clinical trials in addition to offering treatment plans to maximize the body’s own natural healing processes.
OrthoStemCellAtlanta’s Concierge Service provides the patient with educational materials on the various types of therapies and schedules a consultation and evaluation with one of their physician specialists. Determining which of the three types of therapies being offered: Bone Marrow Concentrate (BMC) or Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), is a significant undertaking and one the physicians at OrthoStemCellAtlanta can provide. Because stem cell therapy is not right for every condition, the physicians and team of OSCA can recommend other therapies and treatment options for the patient who is not a candidate for regenerative stem cell treatment.
Stem cell therapies do not require hospitalization and the patient is typically back to full function within a short period of time. The rejuvenation and regeneration processes of adult stem cells and cell products that contain growth hormone are showing great promise in assisting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Whether aspirating and injecting the patient’s own cells or a cell product, these techniques often replace, or postpone, the need for a surgical intervention.
OrthoStemCellAtlanta at SpineCenterAtlanta will be performing these injection therapies for cervical and lumbar spine conditions, as well as joint problems including degenerative arthritis, to combat the normal aging process or following injury.
SpineCenterAtlanta’s significant physician experience and expertise in research, orthopaedics and management of complex spinal disorders has guided the development of this stem cell center of excellence, OrthoStemCellAtlanta.
