At Stem Cell and PRP Injections, we offer stem cell therapy and the stem cells can be implanted into your body through one of four different ways. The type of implantation you receive will depend on your current physical condition and the ailment that is to be treated. Typically, patients will require anywhere from as little as 3 injections up to as many as 15 to 20 injections over the entire course of treatment.
The first method of stem cell implantation at our NYC clinic is through an intravenous option or IV. This is one of the easiest and safest methods of stem cell implantation and is typically the relied-on option. The stem cells are delivered to the body via the IV. Anesthesia is not required for this method, which makes it a wonderful choice for patients. You can expect this option to take up to 30 minutes.
The second method is called Intra-Articular or IA. This method is when the stem cells are directly implanted into the affected area. This method is done by a licensed professional and us often used for arthritis.
The third option is Intramuscular or IM. In this method, the stem cells will be implanted directly into the muscle.
The last option for stem cell implantation is Intrathecal, also known as a lumbar puncture. In this method of delivery, the stem cells are implanted into the spinal fluid directly. This option is used when the stem cells need to reach the brain or spinal cord in the patient. This method does require an experienced anesthesiologist to perform the procedure for safety.
