That’s the name of the lead article in the Wednesday, May 13 edition of the Health and Family Section in the Chicago Tribune. “The brain loves it when we move and will reward us handsomely if we do, researchers say.” That’s what Julie Deardorff has to say in the article. “Work out for the brain”, not just the body. “Physical activity is crucial to mind and body alike.”

I think you understand the point so let’s look at which arthritic complaint is your problem and how stem cells may help. It is too early in the scientific process to suggest clinically, that Regenerative Medicine can reverse changes in the brain though the scientific evidence supports exercise as having such impact. By the same token, it is not too early to state that Cellular Orthopedics can reverse and benefit your knee and hip. This morning, I am finalizing the talk I will be delivering next month, at The Orthopedic and Biologic Institute International Regenerative Medicine scientific meeting to be held in Las Vegas. My data clearly supports the statement that Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate will diminish pain and increase activity in those with arthritis of the major weight bearing joints. We have 187 patients in the data base on whom I have gathered evidence over a 24 month period. All were patients who presented for orthopedic cellular intervention of an arthritic knee. While space does not allow for a complete presentation of the outcomes, the studies clearly document, less pain, better motion, increased functional capacity, and a better state of emotional and physical well-being when compared to pretreatment baselines. The return to high impact recreational activity was statistically significant in the study group of 187 patients.

Bone marrow aspirate concentrate does contain mesenchymal stem cells but there is more to the success story. More recently almost on a monthly basis, molecules and proteins are being identified in the bone marrow in addition to the stem cells that all act together to diminish pain, increase motion, eliminate inflammation , and perhaps even regenerate cartilage. There is even a possibility of reversing or diminishing the bio-immune response of osteoarthritis. At this time, I am unable to document how long these benefits will be realized; my studies will continue as I integrate patient care with research. The latter allows me to determine what number of nucleated cells at the time of the bone marrow aspiration predicts the best chance of a successful outcome. I now have statistically significant evidence that age and BMI do not adversely influence the outcome of a Cellular Orthopedic procedure. By the same token, I can predict success based on the physical examination and history prior to an intervention and advise a patient as to the chance of success based on the combination of the pretreatment consultation and imaging. If you want to learn your chances of postponing or avoiding a joint replacement for arthritis using now scientifically documented results, call for a consultation:
