Beverly Hills, California (PRWEB) May 05, 2014
The top stem cell orthopedic doctor in Beverly Hills at Beverly Hills Orthopedic Institute is now offering stem cell procedures for hip arthritis to help patients avoid the need for joint replacement. The procedures are administered by a highly respected, Double Board Certified Beverly Hills orthopedic doctor, Dr. Raj. Call (310) 438-5343 for more information and scheduling.
Millions of Americans suffer from debilitating hip arthritis and hundreds of thousands annually undergo hip replacement procedures. While hip replacement typically provides exceptional pain relief, it is a major procedure with potential complications in the short or long term. Therefore, it is recommended to only have the procedure as a last resort.
Stem cell procedures for hip arthritis offer the potential for not only relieving pain, but also regenerating damaged tissue. Dr. Raj offers multiple types of stem cell procedures.
The first type of procedure involves bone marrow from the patient. The marrow is harvested with a short outpatient procedure, with the marrow being immediately processed to concentrate the stem cells and growth factors. At the same setting, the concentrate is then injected into the painful hip. Both can be treated at the same time.
The second type of procedure involves amniotic derived stem cells, which are harvested from consenting donors after a scheduled c-section. No fetal tissue is involved, alleviating any ethical concerns. The fluid is processed at an FDA regulated lab and is extremely rich with stem cells, growth factors, anti-inflammatory material and more.
Results in small studies looking at regenerative medicine injections with stem cells have shown excellent pain relief for joint arthritis, tendonitis and ligament injury. Patients are often able to avoid the need for surgery and get back to participating in desired recreational activities.
Dr. Raj has been named one of the top orthopedic doctors in Los Angeles on several occasions, and is also a medical correspondent for ABC News. He is an expert in the nonoperative and operative treatment of hip arthritis.
