Patients are always treated with the best protocols & treatments based on the latest research data & informed consent on investigational nature of treatments.  Strict sterile protocols & universal precautions are followed by out office and staff.

The Difference

Treatments at other Clinics :

"Patch up" treatments like, addicting pain medications, Steroid injection, surgery (many side effects including weight gain & increased blood sugar, damage to kidneys, heart, stroke & gastric ulcer from NSAIDs.)

May not know how to use ultrasound during the injections which is very critical in ensuring a safe & accurate injection. May use xray with unnecessary radiation for injections instead of ultrasound.

PRP & Sonic wave (ESWT) not used to enhance the effects of Stem Cells.

May not offer option of different bone stem cell types. (only offer drilling bones or low quality umbilical stem cells.)

May use poorly trained non-physician assistants to evaluate & perform injections.

Not FDA compliant.

Treatments at Our Clinic :

Treating the root cause of the problem by regenerating and repairing the damaged regions. Good safety profile with body products from own body.

Precision ultrasound guided injection to joints without any radiation to ensure safe delivery of stem cells & PRP to the correct location. (Shown to increase positive results by 20-40% vs. without ultrasound)

Other modalities like PRP & Sonic Wave use to focus on the whole joint and treating different parts of it instead of just treating one out of several diseased structures in the joint.

Several types of stem cell including Adipose (fat), bone marrow and umbilical cord derived options available.

Needle Free Air-Jet Pain pre Injections option.

We perform our procedures at a private Room by Medical Office Towers* in Los Angeles, with easy access to many Hospitals, Ranked in the top 10 USA Hospitals.

Ankle osteoarthritis (AOA) is a severe pathology, mostly affecting a post-traumatic young population. Arthroscopic debridement, arthrodiastasis, osteotomy are the current joint sparing procedures, but, in the available studies, controversial results were achieved, with better outcomes in case of limited degeneration. Only osteotomy in case of malalignment is universally accepted as a joint sparing procedure in case of partial AOA. Recently, the biological mechanism of osteoarthritis has been intensively studied: it is a whole joint pathology, affecting cartilage, bone and synovial membrane. In particular, the first stage is characterized by a reversible catabolic activity with a state of chondropenia. Thus, biological procedures for early AOA were proposed in order to delay or to avoid end stage procedures. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) may be a good solution to prevent or reverse degeneration, due to their immunomodulatory features (able to control the catabolic joint environment) and their regenerative osteochondral capabilities (able to treat the chondral defects). In fact, MSCs may regulate the cytokine cascade and the metalloproteinases release, restoring the osteochondral tissue as well. After interesting reports of mesenchymal stem cells seeded on scaffold and applied to cartilage defects in non-degenerated joints, bone marrow derived cells transplantation appears to be a promising technique in order to control the degenerative pathway and restore the osteochondral defects.

This study is to know the factors that may affect cartilage repair after autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) for the treatment of an osteochondral lesion of the talus (OLT) as seen through a second look arthroscopy. A total of 38 patients who had ACI treatment for OLT underwent a second look arthroscopy 1 year after the ACI operation. A modified magnetic resonance observation of cartilage repair tissue (MOCART) scoring system was used to assess the outcome of the repaired cartilage. Influencing factors were sex, accompanied procedure, location, site, depth, pre-operative AOFAS score, size and age. Factors that may affect cartilage repair after ACI treatment for OLT were evaluated. Of the different factors assessed, sex (P=0.75), accompanied procedure (P=0.50), depth (P=0.08), location (P=0.54), site (P=0.50) and pre-operative AOFAS score (P=0.42) were found not to affect cartilage repair after ACI treatment for OLT. The size of the lesion (P=0.0021) and patient’s age (P=0.01) were the influential factors. As a result, factors affecting repaired cartilage formation after ACI of OLT were found through the second look arthroscopy. It was determined that not all of the factors affecting the clinical outcome after ACI for the repair of an OLT affected cartilage repair after ACI.

3. Jordan RW, Chahal GS, Chapman A. Is end-stage ankle arthrosis best managed with total ankle replacement or arthrodesis? A systematic review. Adv Orthop. 2014; 2014:986285.

End-stage ankle osteoarthritis is a debilitating condition. Traditionally, ankle arthrodesis (AA) has been the surgical intervention of choice but the emergence of total ankle replacement (TAR) has challenged this concept. This systematic review aims to address whether TAR or AA is optimal in terms of functional outcomes. Methods. We conducted a systematic review according to PRISMA checklist using the online databases Medline and EMBASE after January 1, 2005. Participants must be skeletally mature and suffering from ankle arthrosis of any cause. The intervention had to be an uncemented TAR comprising two or three modular components. The comparative group could include any type of ankle arthrodesis, either open or arthroscopic, using any implant for fixation. The study must have reported at least one functional outcome measure. Results. Of the four studies included, two reported some significant improvement in functional outcome in favour of TAR. The complication rate was higher in the TAR group. However, the quality of studies reviewed was poor and the methodological weaknesses limited any definitive conclusions being drawn. Conclusion. The available literature is insufficient to conclude which treatment is superior. Further research is indicated and should be in the form of an adequately powered randomised controlled trial.

4. Aydin AT, Ozenci M, Gur S. Chondropenia: early stage degenerative disease. Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc. 2007; 41(Suppl 2):19–24

Chondropenia is defined as loss of the articular cartilage volume. It is the early stage of degenerative joint disease. Risk factors include advanced age, obesity, overuse (activity-related injury), menopause, and trauma. Early detection of chondropenia is important with regard to recognition of its causes and assessment of the efficacy of treatment. Magnetic resonance imaging is the most potential tool for noninvasive assessment of articular cartilage. Arthroscopy provides information about the size, surface features, and anatomic localization of cartilage lesions, and the features of the adjacent cartilage. By arthroscopy, tissue thickness and in vivo volume of the cartilage can be measured. Studies have given weight to mechano-acoustic diagnosis and optical tools (optical coherence tomography, reflectance spectroscopy). These studies are based on the relationship between the structural and mechanical features of the cartilage. Determination of breakdown products of cartilage is another potentially important method for assessment.

Patients with varus or valgus hindfoot deformities usually present with asymmetric ankle osteoarthritis. In-vitro biomechanical studies have shown that varus or valgus hindfoot deformity may lead to altered load distribution in the tibiotalar joint which may result in medial (varus) or lateral (valgus) tibiotalar joint degeneration in the short or medium term. The treatment of asymmetric ankle osteoarthritis remains challenging, because more than half of the tibiotalar joint surface is usually preserved. Therefore, joint-sacrificing procedures like total ankle replacement or ankle arthrodesis may not be the most appropriate treatment options. The shortand midterm results following realignment surgery, are very promising with substantial pain relief and functional improvement observed post-operatively. In this review article we describe the indications, surgical techniques, and results from of realignment surgery of the ankle joint in the current literature.

Review & Testimonials/Case Examples

 “I’m 73 yo and have torn meniscus and OA. 3 orthos told me I needed knee replacement. Heard about stem cell and had umbilical stem cells injected then my PRP injected a month later. My knee doesn’t hurt nor buckle any more. It does still get ‘tired’ and a little sore but it’s only been about 6 wks since stem cells. … I still have personal trainers but all exercises are done while I’m seated.”

Bobbi S.

“I am receiving treatment for severe osteoarthritis of right ankle.

I have previously consulted two surgeons and was a considered a candidate for ankle fusion with no cartilage left in my ankle. . My mobility problems was getting severe but ankle fusion was terrifying due to permanent lame condition that would result with a “successful” outcome to control pain.

I have been treated with PRP followed 6 weeks later by autologous stem cells from fatty tissue taken from my mid-riff, then PRP again after another 6 weeks.

5 months after the initial treatment I have improved greatly with regard to pain and functioning of my ankle. I used to walk with difficulty, for limited distances and use a cane. Now I only use a cane if I am going for a very long walk or a hike.”

Current Treatment at Other Clinics

Current treatment of foot & ankle involves using medications for pain, steroid injection, foot & ankle surgery and physical therapy which can temporary alleviate the pain.   These treatments are considered a patch up of the problem without treating the root cause of the problem.  Medications & steroids have many side effects including weight gain & increased blood sugar from steroids, damage to kidneys, heart, stroke & gastric ulcer from NSAIDs.  Surgery can be very debilitating with prolong downtime during recovery requiring at times prolonged bed rest & even residing in nursing home for recovery.  It also entails a lot of risk including risk of infection, bleeding, poor surgical outcome to name a few.  At many times surgery fails to alleviate the pain.  Stem cells however, reduce the inflammation and pain that are typical of these conditions. They also work to regenerate and repair the damaged regions 2. Current research on the effect of stem cells in pain management has shown positive results.

We are different from many other clinics who offer stem cell or PRP.   Other clinics may not use ultrasound during the injections which is very critical in ensuring a safe & accurate injection.  They may also not offer option of bone marrow derived stem cell, Adipose derived stem cell & umbilical cord stem cell.  They in effect expose patients to more invasive treatments like drilling bones without offering other easier options.  They also may use xray with unnecessary radiation for injections that can be easily avoided in most cases by using ultrasound.  Furthermore, they may not have proper knowledge of how PRP & Sonic wave (ESWT) can enhance the effects of Stem Cells.  These other modalities are used by us to focus on the whole joint and treating different parts of it instead of just treating one out of several diseased structures in the joint. 

Safe Non Surgical Option

We use a combination of newest cutting edge technology in regenerative medicine to stimulate body’s own repair ability to reverse aging and damage.   We use a careful combination of Stem Cells, PRP and Sonic Waves (ESWT) as part of treatment plan designed by the doctor to treat the body.    These are safe investigational treatments that have shown very promising & safe results in thousands of treatments over the 10-20 years in Europe and USA.   They don’t involve using any medications or drugs.  

What Does ESWT, PRP & Stem Cell Therapy Do?

The researchers believe that the therapy works by:

Releasing cytokines into the body to prevent further damage to cartilage and reduce pain and inflammation.

Preventing inflammation that can make osteoarthritis worse.

Creating healthy new cartilage tissues.

Many patients experience improvements in the treated area and other areas, like in a Mayo Clinic study where patients benefited in both knees after experiencing injections in only one.

Stem cell therapy for foot and ankle conditions

A great improvement is observed by patients after being treated with stem cell therapy. Our stem cell injections for foot and ankle osteoarthritis in Southern California, Beverly Hills triggers healing of scar tissue and reverses it to healthy tissue while relieving inflammation and pain.

Frequently Asked Questions

From where do stem cells originate?

Stem cells are present in many tissues and organs. The bone marrow of fat cells are the richest source of stem cells. However, the most convenient region for harvesting is the umbilical cord.

Do you use embryonic stem cells?

The stem cells are harvested from the placenta of mothers delivered through CS. The mothers donate these placentas willingly.

What can stem cell therapy potentially treat?

Stem cell therapy is beneficial to a number of conditions such as osteoarthritis, erectile dysfunction, joint pain, renal disease, neurological disorders, autism, cellular rejuvenation, etc.

How can stem cells promote healing?

Stem cells are basically building blocks that can develop into any kind of tissues. As such, they are able to replace injured or dead cells, or enhance the healing process in various areas of the body.

What’s the Cost of Stem Cell Injection?

The cost of treatment depends on the procedure performed.  We often offer discounts for returning customers or larger packages of treatment using repeated injections or combining different treatments.  We also offer a price match policy on comparing treatments done by board certified physicians.  We also have interest free payment plan options including care credit for qualifying patients. A limited number of insurance companies and Workers compensation may at times cover some of the expenses.  You may be able to get reimbursed by your insurance for your doctor visits & ultrasound cost. The consultation fee can be deducted from your future procedures, making your consolation free of cost to you.

Book a consultation with our experts to see the type of procedure that is right for you.
