Stephanie is an 18 year old female with a history of complicated lupus. Over the last few years, Stephanie had to take high doses of Prednisone to manage her uncontrolled lupus. Due to this, she developed avascular necrosis in both of her knees - a debilitating condition that caused the destruction of her joints.
Over the last year, she had progressively experienced knee pain in both knees. She had collapse in the right knee and an accelerated deterioration in her left knee, causing her severe pains, even at rest, the inability to weight bear, and eventually ended up in an electric wheelchair to ambulate.
Due to Stephanie’s young age and medical history, she was not a candidate for joint replacement surgeries. We discussed with her using stem cell regenerative therapy with Dr. Riam Shammaa based on positive early promising published results. She was treated with Chondrostem, a stem cell allograft therapy in both her knees over the course of 6 weeks.
4 weeks post therapy, Stephanie was able to walk to the clinic using crutches for the first time in 6 months. She no longer has night pains or pain at rest. She started her rehabilitation therapy and she is reporting significant improvement with her pain, symptoms, and quality of life. She finally has been able to return to school. Stephanie knows that the journey to recovery will not be easy. It takes up to 2-3 years to see the full effects of stem cell therapy. But she sure won the hearts, admiration, and respect of all our staff members here at CCRT.
We specialize in Regenerative and Transitional Medicine. Regenerative medicine is a new and revolutionary field that uses clinical solutions to repair and heal damaged tissues in the body due to aging, trauma, or disease. Our procedures promote healing, regulate cellular functions, implement immunomodulation and regenerate damaged tissue. Some of the procedures we offer are:
We use stem cells and other biologics to treat and repair damaged tissue. The accelerated advances in biotechnology and cell biology allow us to deliver clinical treatments to conditions that were deemed untreatable in the past.
We can boost the body’s natural healing potential by providing proteins and molecules that eliminate any toxic and damaging processes in a tissue. This process allows us to promote the tissue into a healthy state.
We use stem cells and other natural non-synthetic biologics to restore tissues to a state of natural health. We can rejuvenate joints to restore mobility and increase functionality.
Whether you are just starting your research, have questions, or you are ready to get treated, we are happy to help.
