“The use of mesenchymal stem cells and prolotherapy to treat difficult orthopedic injuries and chronic pain has finally started to gain traction in recent years," said Dr. Meier

Team doctors have confirmed that professional baseball player A.J. Pollack of the Arizona Diamondbacks, who suffered a new fracture to his previously injured right elbow in a game on April 1st, according to an July 20 Fox Sports article, will be out on disability for at least three months as he heals from the latest surgery. Pollack’s injury and recovery process is compounded by a new injury to the elbow, as well as an earlier fracture that failed to heal properly.

“Unfortunately, surgery has its limitations when it comes to treating complex fractures and the types of repeated injuries and chronic pain that can result in cases like A.J.’s and many professional athletes,” said Dr. Steven Meier, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist at Meier Orthopedic Sports and Regenerative Medicine in Beverly Hills.

In addition to the surgical procedure to fix the latest fracture and replace a broken screw from a prior surgery, Pollack will also undergo biologic enhancement with stem cell therapy to complement the surgical treatment and help to accelerate the healing and recovery process.
