Dr. Bruce Fishman Provides Insight into Understanding Stem Cells and Cellular Therapy

In this informative video, discover the inner workings of cellular therapy, its advantages, and why it's a compelling alternative to surgery.

What Conditions May Benefit from Cellular Therapy?

Cellular therapy is particularly effective in addressing orthopedic, spinal, and musculoskeletal concerns, catering to athletes and non-athletes alike. Injuries can be unavoidable, but cellular therapy offers a versatile solution for various issues across the body, including the knee, spine, elbow, wrist, hip, foot, shoulder, and ankle—whether acute or chronic conditions. This innovative therapy can effectively tackle a range of musculoskeletal issues, such as osteoarthritis, meniscus tears, tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, elbow injuries, rotator cuff tears, labrum tears, post-surgical pain, ankylosing spondylitis, muscle sprains, degenerative disc diseases, spinal stenosis, and numerous other pain-related disorders. Stem cell therapy focuses on promoting healing and new tissue growth. It aims to enhance mobility and improve the overall quality of life for those seeking relief from such conditions.

What Are The Benefits Of Cellular Therapy?

Cellular therapy offers a multitude of benefits for various health conditions. Some of these benefits include:

Cellular biologics can uniquely regenerate and repair damaged tissues, promoting healing.

Unlike traditional surgical procedures,  cellular therapy is often minimally invasive or non-invasive, reducing the risk of complications and shortening recovery times.

Cellular therapy can help alleviate pain associated with chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendonitis, and other musculoskeletal issues.

Cellular biologics have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce inflammation and swelling in affected areas.

Cellular therapy can improve the function of damaged tissues by promoting tissue regeneration, leading to better overall health and quality of life.

Cellular therapy can be tailored to individual patients, allowing for a customized approach to treatment based on their specific needs and conditions.

Cellular therapy has the potential to provide long-term relief and improvements in symptoms, making it a promising option for many patients.

Overall, cellular therapy offers a revolutionary approach to healing and treatment for many health conditions, potentially improving outcomes and quality of life for many individuals.

How Do Cellular And Acellular Therapies Provide Relief From Knee Pain?

Adult stem cells are distributed throughout the body, ready to respond when injury occurs. These cells migrate to damaged areas and undertake various tasks: they facilitate tissue regeneration to repair the injury, modulate inflammation, and release biochemicals like nanovesicles and cytokines, which promote healing.

In cell-based therapy, a concentrated dosage of cellular components is injected directly into the affected tissues of the knee. This targeted delivery mechanism offers relief from knee pain by:

Reducing inflammation

The injected cells help quell inflammation in the knee joint, alleviating discomfort.

Stimulating tissue healing

They signal the injured tissues to begin healing, fostering repair and regeneration.

Advantages of Cellular Therapy Compared to Surgical Procedures

Considering treatment options for your medical condition can be daunting. If you're weighing the benefits of cellular therapy versus surgical procedures, it's essential to understand the advantages of each. Below are a few reasons many patients opt for cellular therapy over surgery.

Minimally Invasive

Cellular therapy involves injections or infusions, which means no large incisions or extensive tissue damage. Unlike surgery, there's minimal disruption to your body, leading to faster healing and less discomfort during recovery.

Natural Healing

Cellular Biologics have the remarkable ability to regenerate and repair damaged tissues. Instead of repairing or removing tissues surgically, cellular therapy harnesses your body's natural healing processes, promoting long-term recovery and improved function.

Lower Risk of Complications

Surgical procedures have inherent risks, including infections, blood loss, and anesthesia-related complications. With cellular therapy, complications are significantly lower because no incisions or wounds can become infected.

Personalized Treatment

Every patient is unique, and their medical needs vary. Cellular therapy offers personalized treatment plans tailored to your specific condition, medical history, and treatment goals. This customized approach enhances treatment efficacy and ensures better outcomes.

Faster Recovery

Compared to surgery, recovery time after cellular therapy is typically shorter. You can resume your normal activities sooner, with less downtime and fewer restrictions on movement.

Hi - I want to leave this review because this facility has one of the most informative, intelligent, kind, and helpful staff by name of Amanda. Amanda is a gem. She spent a lot of time explaining the benefits of the treatments that I was seeking, but also was so HONEST and CONSIDERATE that stated that due to my medical condition, I should not yet seek the desired treatment they office at their facility. Amanda was not only kind, concern, and honest and spoke with much integrity about how I am vulnerable to receive the treatment, but also she offered many many other alternatives that are available and could be helpful. She honestly took such a long time to explain several options, which some did not even was something they offered, but due to my medical condition could be simple and very useful. I may not be able to use their services now and hopefully later, but I am sure going to refer this facility to anyone who is looking to get stem cell treatment.

My mother got a stem cell injection in her hip a few months before her 76th birthday instead of getting another hip replacement. She is so happy with the results and has been living pain free for the past 6+ months. She keeps telling everyone she knows about Dr. Fishman and Stem Cell Institute of Los Angeles and thinks the drive from Riverside County to Encino is worth every penny!

Our Cellular Therapy Process

Discover how our dedicated team provides a holistic approach to relieving ankle pain through our comprehensive cellular therapy process. Each step is meticulously designed to address your needs and promote optimal recovery.

Initial Consultation and Evaluation

Your journey into cellular therapy begins with an initial consultation with Dr. Bruce Fishman and Dr. Stem Cell. During this crucial meeting, Dr. Fishman and Dr. Stem Cell will conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays and potentially additional imaging, such as MRI or CT scans, to pinpoint the source of your pain. This comprehensive evaluation helps determine if you’re a suitable candidate for cellular therapy.

Preparatory Treatment

Upon approval for cellular therapy, you’ll undergo a preparatory process to optimize your body’s response to the treatment. Two days before your scheduled procedure, you’ll receive a unique IV infusion treatment containing essential vitamins, peptides, and proteins. This infusion enhances cellular function and prepares your body for the upcoming cellular Biologic therapy.

Biocellular Therapy Procedure

Dr. Fishman and Dr. Stem Cell will perform the cellular biologic injection procedure using advanced techniques such as fluoroscopic or ultrasound guidance to target the damaged tissues causing your pain precisely. Depending on your condition, cells may be combined with other biologics, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from a sample of your own blood to accelerate healing and promote tissue repair. Following the procedure, you’ll undergo a session of Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment to enhance the healing process.

Post-Procedure Recovery and Follow-Up

Allowing your body time to rest and recover is essential after the cellular biologic injection procedure. Most patients experience improvements over the following months as your stem cells work to rebuild tissues and rehabilitate the injury. You’ll have a follow-up appointment with Dr. Fishman four weeks after the procedure for a check-up. If appropriate for your condition, you may receive your first FDA-approved muscle-building Emsculpt treatment at this time. Regular follow-up appointments at 3, 6, and 12 months will monitor your progress and ensure continued improvement.
