Hip replacement is a common orthopedic surgery for the millions of Americans that suffer from degenerative arthritis of the hips. Joint replacement surgery is put of as long as possible, often with the help of hip injections. Steroids are a short-term solution however since the chronic use of steroids damages local tissues. Certain types of hip problems including certain fractures and injuries may not be amenable to cell therapy. Individual cases are evaluated when attempting regenerative therapy to assess likelihood of success.
At OC Regenerative Medicine we attempt to exploit the anti-inflammatory and healing effects of SVF (rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors) with our degenerative hip disease SVF deployment protocol. SVF is injected using local anesthesia under imaging guidance to ensure accurate injection for optimized deployment. SVF harvesting and procurement and deployment are all done as an outpatient with total procedure time of approximately 3 hours.
