Stem Cell Injections

The stem cells inside of you serve as the repairmen of your body. However, as you age or if you get injured, you may not be able to get enough of these critical repair cells to the injured area. Stem cell injections help solve this problem by greatly increasing your body’s own natural repair cells to promote healing.

Summa is currently using adipose tissue for stem cell harvest (fat cells) to successfully treat acute and chronic injuries of muscle, tendon, ligaments, bone and cartilage. Some specific conditions that can be treated include:

  • Mild to moderate osteoarthritis/degenerative arthritis of joints, especially the hip and knee
  • Tendon injuries, including partial tears of the rotator cuff of the shoulder
  • Back pain related to degenerative disc and facet joint

Summa physicians perform some of the most advanced stem cell procedures for orthopedic conditions. Our goal is to reduce pain and improve function without the need for surgery. To find out more, schedule an appointment today!
