As an orthobiologic therapy, our expert offers stem cell injections, also known as bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) injections or adipose-derived stromal cell (ADSC) injections. Found in bone marrow, adult stem cells are special cells that can become other kinds of cells, such as blood cells as well as bone, muscle, and other soft-tissue cells.
Before injection, stem cells are extracted or collected and then concentrated. The stem cell concentration is then injected into the injured site, where they will work to heal your damaged tissues.
Stem cell therapy can be used to treat many injuries and conditions, including:
- Labral tears
- Partial rotator cuff tears
- Pinched nerves
- Trigger fingers
Performed by fellowship-trained, board-certified surgeon Gary M. Lourie, M.D., stem cell injections at The Hand & Upper Extremity Center of Georgia offer you a nonsurgical treatment option and healing aid that can help you recover faster and get you back to your active lifestyle without surgery.
