First, South Lake Pain Clinic and Dr. Paez will help you determine if you’re a good candidate for an adult stem cell procedure. Every patient is different, and no medical treatment is guaranteed to work for all of us. That’s why we will review your history of illnesses and injury, and may also want to see x-rays or an MRI. If there’s anything that may affect the success of your adult stem cell procedure, Dr, Paez will want to find out BEFORE prescribing regenerative therapy.
If you are a good candidate for a regenerative therapy procedure, you’ll meet with the nursing team and Dr. Paez to review your procedure and have your questions answered.
Dr. Paez removes a small amount of bone marrow from an easy-to-access point on your hip using a syringe.
The procedure team separates the adult stem cells from the rest of the bone marrow material in a lab near the procedure room, or sometimes in the same room.
Dr. Paez returns the concentrated adult stem cells to the part of your body that needs to heal.
