Our philosophy is to provide the highest quality, state of the art orthopedic care while maintaining compassion and concern for each patient’s individual needs. This means treating the whole person, not just their injury or illness. Many options usually exist for treating any problem, and these need to be tailored to your individual concerns and circumstances, such as work, school, athletics, or family situation. Dr. Schrader will take the time to evaluate your medical condition with appropriate examination and tests such as x-rays, CT scan, MRI, and Dexascan, if needed. Your diagnosis will be explained thoroughly to you and your questions will be answered. You will be educated as to the treatment alternatives and provided with a recommended plan. Dr. Schrader will be happy to offer you medical, surgical, and even alternative treatments after these discussions.
Our body is made up of trillions of cells. These cells begin as stem cells which then replicate and mature into many different types of cells in the body. Hematopoietic stem cells give rise to all of the blood cells in our body. For regenerative pain purposes, however, we use a different type of stem cell called mesenchymal stem cells. These mesenchymal stem cells have the ability to help the body repair itself. Mesenchymal stem cells communicate with other damaged cells through a process called “paracrine signaling”. This paracrine signaling process directs and controls the natural regeneration or healing process in our bodies. Nashville Stem Cell Therapy utilizes these mesenchymal stem cells to help the body naturally repair itself. Our Nashville Stem Cell Therapy provides a natural source to help with pain and various disease processes.
