About R3 Stem Cell Centers of Excellence
R3 Stem Cell Centers of Excellence provide treatment options that bring people hope and pain relief. Hope that going under the knife can be avoided, and injury can be repaired with the patient then being able do things like hike, swim, ride a bike, play with your kids again and be… Free of Pain!
Existing pain management therapies have been excellent at reducing pain by masking discomfort in a “band aid” fashion with medications such as cortisone, narcotics or anti-inflammatory medications.
These treatments work great for relief, but they do NOT repair the underlying problem!
Fixing Tissue Injury
So how is the problem actually fixed, whether it’s joint arthritis, neck or back pain, rotator cuff tendonitis, ligament injury, golfer’s or tennis elbow?
Regenerative Medicine at R3 Stem Cell has the potential for restoring normal anatomy by utilizing therapies with stem cells, platelet rich plasma therapy and growth factors to promote a healing response in your own body.
Stem Cells are akin to a blank slate and can change into several types of cells helpful for tissue regeneration depending on the environment in which they situated.
R3 Stem Cell Treatments
These are all same day, outpatient therapies. All of the regenerative medicine injections are performed either into joints, soft tissue or for cosmetic improvements.
Initial studies are showing these stem cell therapies to have substantial promise in healing injury while reducing pain. For example, several professional sports leagues have approved of PRP therapy along with the WADA.
Pro athletes who have undergone regenerative medicine therapies performed include the likes of Rafael Nadal, Bartolo Colon, Kobe Bryant (later in his career), Dwight Howard, and many more.
All of the treatments at R3 Stem Cell centers are administered by Board Certified physicians.
