Surgery to help back or neck pain has a bad reputation. Almost everybody knows someone who has had bad results. For example. disc surgery can weaken that structure and it can re-herniate. In a fusion surgery, a procedure where part of the spine is bolted together solid, the structures above and below can get overloaded and torn up and this problem is known as adjacent segment disease.
What you may not know and find frustrating to hear, is that unfortunately, in many cases, these surgeries have been shown to be no more effective than sham surgeries, though the risks associated with them are very real. For example, fusion surgery complications occur in 25% of fusion patients. Additionally, fusions lead to the wearing down of the segments above and below the fusion site as those segments now take on more movement than they were designed to accommodate, potentially leading to the need for additional fusions over time.
During Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy®, your physician will use precise image guidance to inject amniotic fluid into the exact areas of pain around the spine. If you had prior disc surgery, the amniotic fluid will promote your body’s own healing process by using healing components within your blood to help promote natural healing of the damaged nerves. Or if you had a fusion, our goal will be to strengthen and heal the damage happening because of the increased wear and tear. Best of all, your downtime will be a fraction of surgery, with little to no need for pain medication or time off of work.
