Our hospital partner offers treatment with autologous stem cells isolated from fat (adipose) tissue as the richest source of mesenchymal stem cells, and other regenerative cells contained in so called Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) of adipose tissue.

Osteoarthritis or degenerative arthritis

Osteoarthritis, or sometimes called degenerative arthritis, is caused by aging and degenerative changes in joints. Osteoarthritis in one of the most common diseases worldwide, affecting every other person over the age of 50. Joint injury and obesity can increase the risk of osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis symptoms include joint pain and stiffness. Treatment depends on the affected joint, including the hand, wrist, neck, back, knee, and hip, and involves medication and exercise. People taking painkiller drugs such as Voltaren, Brufen, Ibalgin, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Ibuprofen, Naprosyn, Celebrex or any other NSAIDs (non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs) are at increased risk of death. These drugs at a minimum double the chance of a sudden death heart attack or stroke and at a maximum they quadruple it!

Cartilage damage – Chondropathy

Chondropathy means any damage to the cartilage. There are many caused of chondropathy, here is the list of common cartilage problems:

  • Chondromalacia – damage or softening of the cartilage. The surface of the cartilage becomes rough and gets irritated with movement. It can be caused by overuse of the joint, simple wear and tear as we age, acute injury such as a fall, problems with knee alignment or simple muscle weakness.
  • Osteochondritis Dissecans – is a painful condition within a joint in which fragments of cartilage or bone have become loose, leading to pain and inflammation. The loose piece may stay in place or slide around making the joint stiff and unstable. These fragments are sometimes referred to as “joint mice”.
  • Osteoarthritis – or degenerative arthritis.
  • Trauma, cartilage inflammation, chondrodysplasia represent other chondropathies.

Joint pain

There are more than 100 causes of joint pain. Here we list the most common ones:

  • Osteoarthritis or degenerative arthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Sprains and strains – Sprains occur at joints and affect ligaments, which connect bone to bone. Strains affect muscles or tendons, which connect muscle to bone.
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome – is a debilitating disorder characterized by extreme fatigue or tiredness that doesn’t go away with rest, and can’t be explained by an underlying medical condition.
  • Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder marked by widespread, unexplained pain in tender points in the muscles and joints.
  • Bursitis – Bursae are fluid-filled sacs found about the joints. They lubricate the muscle tendons and reduce friction during movement. Bursitis is a term for their inflammation that may be very painful.
  • Joint injury

Joint injury

Not only top professional athletes may suffer from broad range of sports injuries but anybody who likes sports may happen to injure herself or himself. The long list of sport injuries includes from head to toe:

  • Head injury, concussions
  • Neck injury
  • Shoulder dislocation
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Tennis elbow, golfer´s elbow
  • Skier´s thumb
  • Hip injury, hip dislocation, femoral bone fracture
  • Hamstring injury
  • Knee injury
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury
  • Ankle injury
  • Turf toe
  • Tendon injuries
  • Muscle injuries

Can be treated by our partner clinic.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that can cause chronic inflammation of the joints and other areas of the body. It typically presents as joint pain, swollen joints, stiff joints, fatigue, joint redness, joint deformity, and sometimes fever. Chronic inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis can cause permanent joint destruction and deformity.

Fortunately, new research studies demonstrate safety and clinical effects of autologous (patient´s own) stem cells in healing of rheumatoid arthritis. No serious side effects such as heart attack, stroke, thromboembolism or death were observed in thousands of people treated with autologous stem cells.

Muscle tendon or damage injury tendinitis

Tendinitis, sometimes also called tendonitis, is an inflammation or irritation of a tendon, a thick cord that attaches bone to muscle. Tendinitis is frequently caused by repetitive, minor impact on the affected area, or from a sudden more serious injury. There are many activities that may cause tendinitis including gardening, carpentry, house cleaning, skiing, playing tennis or golf, throwing and pitching.

Can be treated by our partner clinic.

Synovitis and bursitis

Synovitis is the inflammation of a synovial (joint-lining) membrane, usually painful, particularly on motion, and characterized by swelling, due to effusion (fluid collection) in a synovial sac. Synovial cells localized in the synovial membrane are important for their production of synovial fluid that nourish the joint cartilage. Synovial fluid is found in joint cavities, bursae, and tendon sheaths. In case of inflammation in bursae, it is called bursitis. The joint affected with synovitis or bursitis appears swollen and feels puffy or boggy to the touch. The cells release enzymes into the joint space which causes further pain and irritation. If the process continues for years, the enzymes may gradually digest the cartilage and bone of the joint leading to chronic pain and degenerative changes.
