Call or go online to schedule a consultation today.
Stem cell therapy is a state-of-the-art approach to pain management that uses stem cells — the most basic cellular building blocks of your body — to stimulate your body’s natural ability to heal and repair itself. Stem cells are unique in that they can become whatever type of cell your body needs to repair itself.
Stem cell therapy is minimally invasive. After applying a local anesthetic, Dr. Burry injects the stem cells into your damaged joint or tissue. The treatment is quick and safe with minimal risk of complications, especially if you use your own stem cells. Dr. Burry is usually able to harvest stem cells from your fat tissue or depending on your health she can use donor cells.
In addition to stem cell therapy, the Pain Management Institute of Orlando offers prolotherapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections.
Prolotherapy treatments stimulate your body’s healing response with injections of tissue-irritating substances. The irritation triggers your body to flood the tissue with the nutrients, blood, and growth factors needed to repair the tissue.
PRP is a serum made from a sample of your blood that has been separated in a centrifuge so that your platelets can be combined with your plasma. Your platelets consist of growth factors that support tissue repair and regeneration. PRP injections flood damaged tissue with the growth factors and nutrients that accelerate the healing process.
Regenerative medicine treatments like stem cell therapy, PRP injections, and prolotherapy can be helpful in treating degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis and musculoskeletal injuries like ligament and tendon tears. For example, Dr. Burry often includes regenerative medicine in the treatment of:
Whether you’ve suffered a sports injury or have chronic pain in your knees, shoulders, elbows, and/or back, Dr. Burry offers thorough exams and consultations to identify the best treatments to ease your pain and heal your body.
