Chronic back pain already takes plenty out of you, taking a toll on your ability to do the day-to-day activities that you enjoy. Don’t let an invasive surgical procedure, with a prolonged recovery and higher likelihood of complications, take even more from you. If you want to get back to living without chronic pain, regenerative medicine could be an excellent option to help you get back your life.
The surgeons at the Spine Institute Northwest can combine the minimally invasive spine surgery techniques that are their specialty with regenerative medicine to provide a solution to your back pain problems. Using adult stem cells that come from your own body, regenerative medical techniques can repair the causes of your back pain, promoting the healing and restoration of discs or cartilage.
Though the exact procedure varies depending on your diagnosis, regenerative medicine procedures can be performed in our comfortable outpatient setting. Using a small incision, your surgeon will perform any necessary repairs to the affected disc (for example, laser spinal decompression). The disc can then be injected with stem cells taken from your bones or fat. The transplanted stem cells will regenerate as disc cells, helping you to heal and relieving your pain.
With the new techniques available with regenerative medicine, the doctors at the Spine Institute Northwest can help you get back to living a more comfortable life, free from chronic pain and without the fear of disability from further degeneration. This cutting-edge procedure can be difficult to find in Canada, but with the Spine Institute Northwest’s easy accessibility from Alberta and British Columbia, relief is closer than you think.
