Stem Cell Therapy is a regenerative therapy which uses the body’s own mesenchymal stem cells and biological growth factors to heal and regenerate injured tissue such as ligaments, tendons, joints and cartilage. Theoretically, stem cells can regenerate every organ, muscle, vascular system and nerve pathway in the body. When combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment, a stem cell treatment is turbocharged with more growth factors and cells that have a greater ability to recruit the immune system to heal. The science behind Stem Cell therapy is constantly expanding and has demonstrated remarkable results. With Stem Cell Therapy, you are not just treating your symptoms, you are repairing yourself cell by cell using nature’s most outstanding biological miracle, the stem cell.
Depending on the severity of your medical condition, Dr. Scott Greenberg may recommend Kinetic Regenerative Therapy (KRT). It is a proactive approach that seeks to halt the progression of numerous conditions and repair injured joints. KRT is a low-risk, high-reward series of infusion treatments that are steroid and opioid-free and completely natural.
Kinetic Regenerative Therapy includes Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments and Stem Cell Treatments. Dr. Greenberg may suggest one or a combination of the three. All three treatment modalities are excellent alternatives to pain management or surgery.
To assess if regenerative stem cell treatments can help you, Dr. Scott Greenberg and his team will review your medical history, pertinent radiographic studies such as X-rays and MRIs, and perform a Comprehensive Kinetic Diagnosis that includes a hands-on examination of the site of your physical complaint and all areas related to it. A Comprehensive Kinetic Diagnosis seeks to identify the root cause of your pain, and create a roadmap for joint regeneration that resolves the core problem and eliminates many of your symptoms.
During the procedure, local anesthetic is used to help numb both the harvest and treatment region when possible. The harvest area is the site where your cells are drawn from your adipose tissue using two very small incisions. They are then prepared according to FDA guidelines by your Stem Cell Therapy team. Dr. Greenberg will then perform a comprehensive treatment to the damaged region and related areas that further are contributing to the source of pain and joint dysfunction. Often, the adipose is used as a fat graft in patients who have joint damage in knees, ankles, hips, shoulders, elbows and thumbs, while patients with neck and back pain will receive direct treatment to areas of the spine and sacrum.
For the past twenty years, Dr. Greenberg has studied the behavior of stem cells and researched their complex nature. Since 1999, he has learned researched how tissue-specific stem cells function in the body, how they regenerate nerve, joint and tissue systems and how they depend on other blood components to heal an injury. He will typically perform several hundred stem cell procedures and a few thousand PRP treatments per year.
Dr. Greenberg is a pioneering leader in developing new stem cell-based therapies. He serves as the chair of the Institutional Review Board of the American Association of Stem Cell Physicians and is a founding board member. He is also a consulting physician for DSM, a leader in regenerative biological medicine. He was a member of the first team to publish case study to repair a meniscus tear using autologous stem cell therapy. He also has the distinction to be selected and accredited as Director of the Regenerative Medicine team at the Dee Adams Center for Integrative and Regenerative Medicine at the Bryn Mawr Hospital.
Doctor Greenberg is a member of the American College for the Advancement in Medicine and a member of the American Association of Orthopedic Medicine. He holds Board Certification in Family Practice and is a recipient of the Physicians Recognition Award from the American Medical Association. He is a diplomate of the National Board of Medical Examiners.
