Regenerative Stem Cell Medicine
Chronic pain is debilitating and surgery doesn’t have to be your only treatment option. At New York Pain Care, we use regenerative medicine procedures to aid and accelerate your body’s natural healing process using your own blood and bone marrow aspirate. Our board certified doctors use the latest imaging techniques to ensure that the procedure is performed with absolute precision.
How does stem cell therapy work?
Stem cell therapy takes advantage of the special healing quality of stem cells. These cells can help repair damage to discs and other tissues in the body. Stem cells are found in your bone marrow. Your doctor can use a special needle to take a small amount of marrow from your hip bone.
The doctor injects this mixture into a damaged area. The injection triggers your body's healing response. The stem cells multiply. They help rebuild tears and restore damaged parts of an injured area.
After the procedure, you can go home. Your doctor will ask you to come back to the office several times to monitor the healing process.

But stem cell therapy may help. It uses parts of your own blood to help repair disc damage. It can slow disc degeneration. It may help you avoid surgery.
