Stem Cell Treatment of Osteoarthritis

About Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a chronic, degenerative disorder arising from breakdown of cartilage tissue in the joints. It affects the population of the age of 45 and above. It is more frequently observed in women than men. It progresses slowly and thus there is a greater danger of morbidity associated with decreased physical activity. Today, the treatment of osteoarthritis includes symptomatic relief with pain killers and physiotherapy which helps to keep you mobilized. However, there is no permanent solution to this dreadful disease which is conquering most of the world. At Euromedic Healthcare we aim to provide you solutions to permanently solve this chronic joint disorder.

stem cells for OsteoarthritisEuromedic Healthcare provides you with the latest information treatment available for osteoarthritis i.e. with the help of stem cells. Researchers at our medical centres believe that stem cell therapy has the potential to dramatically change the treatment of this disease. Stem cells are the body’s building blocks; they provide a master plan for the growth to come and have the potential to replace any kind of diseased cell in the body. They can be taken from adults,  children, or even umbilical cords.

Role of Stem Cell in Osteoarthritis…

Stem cell therapy has been demonstrated in the medical centres and found to induce profound healing activity in animals with various forms of arthritis. For example, there are certain companies which routinely utilize stem cells in horses with various joint deformities to accelerate healing. Stem cells can not only completely revive injured tissues but also have the ability of altering the immune system so as to shut off pathological responses while preserving the ability to fight a disease.  The stem cells used are called allogenic mesenchymal stem cells and they are adult stem cells, neither fetal nor embryonic. The stem cells are taken from donated human umbilical cords after a normal, healthy birth. Each expectant mother is tested prior to donation for evidence of past or present  infectious diseases and has her medical history is screened. A well-informed written consent is taken from each family prior to donation.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are known to have a potential for articular cartilage regeneration. Before they are cleared by the lab for the use in treatments, all of the mesenchymal stem cells are screened for infectious diseases to International Blood Bank Standards. The stem cells taken from Human Umbilical Cord tissue (HUCT) can be used by anyone who is suffering from Osteoarthritis. It can be administered multiple times over the course of a few days in uniform dosages that contain high cell counts. The body’s immune system recognizes human umbilical cord tissue (HUCT)-derived mesenchmyal stem cells as its own and thus the chances of rejection are negligible.

The stem cells are administered by a specially skilled physician into the affected joint by an injection or through a vein. It takes about 5 days for the treatment to be administered. The specially trained staffs of our medical centres keep the follow up of the patient to evaluate the effectiveness of their treatment.

These tiny cells are making big headlines these days and we at Euromedic Healthcare are doing everything to bring this cutting edge therapy right in your neighborhood. There is continuous research being performed at our various medical centers to achieve the ultimate goal, total and continued health!
