Cost

The cost of regenerative therapy procedures depend on your specific treatment. If needed, subsequent injections are likely to have a reduced cost following your initial treatment. For more information, call 208.523.7246 to receive pricing information for your specific regenerative therapy plan.


Recovery Time

Although recovery times vary, most patients can expect to see improvement in their pain and mobility within 4 to 6 weeks after treatment. Patients will continue to see improvement in pain and mobility for up to 12 months. Regenerative therapy patients experience rapid recovery and are back to their daily activities very quickly.


Benefits

No surgery, no medication, and no hospital stays are just a few of the reasons why thousands have chosen regenerative therapies over traditional methods. Most procedures are performed in less than an hour with very little post recovery. Many patients are able to return to work the next day. Because most regenerative procedures use your own body’s platelets and cells for healing, it’s safe and natural!

Stem Cell Therapy for Pain Management

Chronic pain is a problem that sadly affects most people within their lifetime. There are patients who fall into the category of not responding to noninvasive therapies but they decline or are not candidates for joint or spine surgery. Some clinicians are turning to autologous stem cell therapy and they are seeing benefits.

Evidence of the effectiveness of the pain relief seen by the therapy have been reported to be at least 50% in relative consistency in some correlational studies, meaning the treatments may be working fairly well for a number of patients. A significant number of results have been seen in patients as much as 3 years after the procedure is performed, meaning that recuperation is highly likely for all types of pain and injuries.

Promising application of stem cell therapy resides within the treatment of degenerative disc disorder, which affects millions of people within the United States. In 2015, Pettine, Murphy, Suzuki et al. found that by using autologous stem cells to treat discogenic low back pain, they were able to improve pain scores in 21 of 26 patients within their study. “Rehydration of the discs in eight of twenty patients according to MRI in conjunction with sustained pain relief through 12 months represents promise for the use of this regenerative medicine approach” (Pettine, Murphy, Suzuki et al, 2014). Results such as these are promising and are currently encouraging larger clinical trials in order to generalize results across a very extensive breadth of patients.

Teton Spine and Sports Pain Center utilizes stem cells for the treatment of:

  • Degenerative Disc disorder
  • Arthritis joint disease (knees, hips, shoulders, etc. )
  • Tendinitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Facet joint pain
  • Sacroiliac joint
  • Greater trochanter bursitis
  • Sub acromial bursitis
  • Sports injuries or normal wear and tear
  • And many more

Repeat treatment can be initiated after 6 months for optimal results for patients with severe symptoms.

What are Stem Cells?

Stem cells have been clinically and scientifically proven to effectively treat chronic and acute pain. Stem cells are the body’s master cells. They are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to transform into a variety of different cells, replace dying cells, and regenerate damaged tissue. Stem cells are derived from your own body’s bone marrow or fat deposit (adipose).

An alternative method for regenerative medicine is through allograft tissues (from a purified amniotic source). These tissues have a high concentration of collagens, structural proteins and growth factors that support healing. This immune-privileged tissue can have some advantages over other regenerative therapies. Speak with our physician about which regenerative medicine technique would be right for you and your injury.




Stem Cell Therapy


Stem cell therapy is a very simple and safe outpatient procedure that is performed by a qualified physician. It’s easy as 1, 2, 3!


Step 1

Removal of bone marrow or fat tissue. If you choose to use amniotic stem cells, half the battle is already over.


Step 2

Once a sample of your bone marrow or fat tissue has been obtained, the cells are isolated with a specialized centrifuge. If you decide to use amniotic stem cells, they are delivered to the doctor’s office ready for injection.


Step 3

The stem cells are then carefully injected into the site where the injury exists and the healing and regeneration begins!




Important questions to ask:




What is the recovery time?

Two advantages of a stem cell injection over surgery are:

  • No need for hospital stay
  • No prolonged recovery

Most patients find themselves back in their daily routine the day after the procedure. Healing gradually happens over the course of 2-6 weeks and can continue for up to 12+ months.




What are the results & benefits of stem cell therapy?

If you haven’t already learned all the wonderful benefits of stem cell therapy, here they are listed out for you:

  • Uses your own body’s master cells to heal
  • Heals and doesn’t just mask the pain
  • Outpatient procedure
  • Simple procedural process
  • Quick recovery
  • Back to work the next day

How do we do it?

Stem cells are harvested and concentrated from amniotic fluid, bone marrow, or fat to be re-injected directly into damaged or degenerated tissues. This procedure is performed on the same day for the patient’s convenience and stem cells are minimally altered so as to advance the healing process for each patient. Since cells are obtained from the patient and returned to the patient within a “single surgical procedure” in most procedures, there are no issues with immune rejection or increased risk of infection.
