Am I A Candidate?
Dr. Witte will begin your appointment with a full medical history, and exam to determine if you are a candidate for stem cell regenerative therapy. Dr. Witte has completed a fellowship in orthopedic sports medicine at the Andrews Research & Education Institute in Gulf Breeze, FL, working under the leadership of world-renowned orthopedic surgeon, Dr. James Andrews.
At StemLife we are focused on the proper diagnosis. There are some patients that DO need an operative solution. And there are some that need their joints cleaned up. In these cases simply injecting stem cells into the joint would not be effective.
We are proud of the care we take in the diagnostic phase with our patients. It helps to have an Orthopedic Surgeon of Dr. Witte’s stature, training, and experience. This ensures that we are doing the right treatment at the right time.
We also enjoy a partnership with physical therapists that are trained in the proper therapeutic approach when utilizing biologics (Stem Cells and Blood Treatments for injuries) for the best recovery. We don’t just issue injections; we make sure our patients connect with our expert physical therapists who work with post stem cell injections.
At Warner Orthopedics, we do not and will not use embryo cells. We harvest mesenchymal stem cells from your own bone.
Stem cells can be multipotent or pluripotent.
Multipotent stem cells can develop into many different types of cells.
Pluripotent stem cells have the potential to grow into any type of cell that occurs in the human body.
Adult mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow are multipotent.
In recent years, stem cells have been popular within the medical community thanks to their regenerative properties and the remarkable potential they hold for treating illnesses.
Stem cells hold the potential to develop into many different cell types. Their abilities to transform at a moment’s notice make stem cells a game-changer in medical science and offer doctors new possibilities for treating injuries affecting the joints and ligaments.
They also function as an internal maintenance system, dividing without limits and replenishing surrounding cells in the process.
As stem cells divide, the new cells will either remain stem cells or develop into another type of cell with a specialized function, such as a brain cell, muscle cell or red blood cell. In some areas of the body, like the gut or bone marrow, stem cells regularly divide and repair damaged, worn tissues.
