Treating Sports Injury and orthopedic problems non-surgically using Stem Cell Therapy: Sports Doctor from Performance Spine and Sports Medicine of Lawrenceville, New Jersey, Dr. Joseph Jimenez, mingles with athletes at the Rare View Lounge, NYC at a sponsored event on April 2012 for hopeful athletes
So what is the latest procedure that may help athletes?
HOW ABOUT LIPOSUCTION?!! IT MAY NOT BE JUST FOR PLASTIC SURGERY AFTER ALL…
Everyone this spring and summer will do their yearly battles or struggles with “the bulge”, aka, love handles, body fat, or simply the belly FAT
There is something good in these so called “love handles” —- THEY ARE RICH WITH STEM CELLS!!
Why are stem cells so important in? Because, in our wold of Orthopedic Medicine, stem cells HAVE THE POTENTIAL to turn into new tendons, ligaments, bone, cartilage, muscle when they get injured. Basically, athletes and patients alike, can have a NONSURGICAL option to repair injured shoulders, knees, hips, foot and ankle.
So, how can Liposuction benefit Athletes and patients with orthopedic injury and joint pain?
Here ‘s how it works:
Third, we would inject the stem cells into any injured body part such as shoulder, knee, ankle. Medical Studies show that stem cells have the potential to heal fractures and other damaged tissues (1, 2, 3) .
Lastly, we would do PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma Injections) to activate the stem cells so that they can grow and repair any damaged joint WITHOUT SURGERY.
So next time you or someone you know complains about Belly Fat, just remember that it may be used to help treat your orthopedic issues!
