Did you know orthopaedic conditions can be treated with the help of stem cell therapy? Conditions like tendon injuries, back pain from degenerative disc, mild osteoarthritis – especially the hip and knee can be treated with the help of stem cell therapy.
Modern day technology in the field of medicines has allowed us to withdraw stem cells from bone marrow and re-inject them into the injured tissues in the other areas of the body after concentrating them through the lab process. Once the stem cells are re-injected, they assist in enhancing the natural repair process of degenerated and injured tendons and arthritic joints.
The main objective of the stem cell treatment is to reduce the pain and improve the body functions without any surgery. Sometimes, the conditions are too severe for the stem cell therapy that is when surgery becomes mandatory.
Cosmetic stem cell therapy is used for the treatment of your eyes, the forehead, cheeks, frown lines, jaw line, chin, hands, buttocks, calves, hair lines and dimples. In the process of stem cell cosmetic surgery, the stem cells are inserted into the syringes and treated with the help of the shift in the adult cells. This therapy is an effective method to replace the damaged skin cells which helps in regenerating collagen and elastin thereby tightening and rejuvenating the skin. Stem cells are biomedical products and are found naturally in the body. The stem cells role is to signal cell growth and to build connective tissue and is just the procedure of taking something from your body and using it in the cosmetic practices.
Endocrine therapy is done to achieve the antitumor effect by using the radiation or surgical procedure as the procedure suppress the natural hormonal activity and alters the long term control of the growth of cancer cells in the body. This procedure is basically performed to control the symptoms of autoimmune diseases. Bone marrow transplant is coded as autologous or allogeneic. Autologous bone marrow is when the bone marrow is taken from the patient himself and the later when the bone marrow is from a donor. During the treatment the stem cells are harvested i.e. the immature blood cells are collected from the patient and the harvested cells are transfused into the body followed by chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
Neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease affects tons of people from across the world, and with no permanent cure, the number of such diseases will continue to rise and is expected to double by 2050. The treatments available for these diseases only provide transient benefits. This makes it even more important for the medical fraternity to come and find a better cure for the same. After a lot of researches and clinical studies, it has been suggested that the transplantation of neutral stem cells (NSCs) promises new therapeutic approach for neuro-degeneration. The two important ways in which the cells can be delivered through therapeutic effects are either by contributing the cells in creating new motherboard or by expressing i.e. taking care of the current cells.
Diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disorder that occurs due to the deficiency of insulin production by pancreatic beta cells. Stems cells can be used to generate the beta cells. Beta cells are capable of inducing physiological changes in the body and meeting the requirements including pregnancy and obesity, and also insulin secretion. Though the effect of the treatment is transient, the therapy can be continued for long term benefits.
Injuries like cuts, burns, ulcers and diseases like diabetes often leave permanent marks and wounds on the skin. If the stem cells are not that effective, then it takes a lot of time for the wounds to heal. Stem cells have the potential to control the differentiation of the epidermal stems helps boost the engineering of the skin graft that helps in treating the diabetes wounds.
Age and stem cells have a co-relation – once a person starts to get older, the stem cells start to deplete. In most of the healthy individuals the youthfulness is maintained because of the epidermal stem cells that renew and generate new cells. However, with aging the potential of the stem cells to repair the damaged organs and to restore the stem cells is destroyed and this results in erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is the most widespread sexual disorder among men. According to the medical studies, the stem cells overturn the patho- physiological changes that lead to the erectile dysfunction. The stem cell therapy provides a permanent solution for this health problem. Thus, stem cells can be used as an anti-aging agent that can help regenerate the tissues and organs that have been damaged over the time.
