The phenomenon of elbow osteoarthritis
There are many factors both genetic and environmental that contribute to the disease process. In many cases patients may have a predisposing elbow injury and/or loose ligaments around the elbow joint leading to abnormal alignment and accelerated breakdown. Loss of cartilage at the ends of elbow bones, poorly functioning support from the surrounding elbow ligaments and bone spurs are frequent findings in arthritis of the elbow. Often overlooked, the elbow joint environment that surrounds all of the elbow joint tissues becomes “catabolic” meaning that it contains an increased level of destructive enzymes that destroy the elbow joint over time.
Downfalls of elbow joint surgery
Elbow joint surgery is an invasive procedure. In many cases surgeons will “clean up” or cut out part or all of the remaining elbow cushion tissue (cartilage). Complicating factors include prolonged downtime, risks such infection, relapsing pain as arthritis progresses and reduced range of motion.
A Bio-Restorative Stem Cell procedure for elbow arthritis
Traditionally, the only treatment for those with elbow arthritis was an invasive elbow surgery that involved cutting out existing cushioning tissue (cartilage) of the elbow.
A Bio-Restorative Stem Cell procedure for those with elbow joint arthritis is an ultra-minimally invasive same-day injection procedure designed to alleviate pain, improve function, and slow elbow joint degeneration with an aim at joint preservation. In addition to being less invasive then surgery, the procedure conveys less risk of complications and in many cases less downtime. Though it is not covered by insurance carriers, out of pocket costs for this procedure are often comparable to elbow joint surgery when considering copayments and loss productivity associated with surgery. Most importantly, this joint preserving procedure allows you to preserve remaining elbow joint cartilage (cushion).
In other words, the Stem Cells from your own body harness your own body’s healing capability to naturally restore, reduce pain and get you back to doing the things you love.
