Macquarie Stem Cells is one of the most experienced stem cell providers in Australia and thanks to our highly skilled team of professionals we have successfully treated 700+ patients since 2009.See us on Today Tonight Learn more about Stem Cells
Stem Cell Therapy is a treatment that can help patients who are suffering severe and chronic conditions gain a new hold on life. Stem cells can be used to treat a range of medical conditions, including;
Our Sydney practice is a centre of excellence in adult Stem Cell Therapy and our friendly team of medical doctors can perform the stem cell treatments in a single 5 hour appointment.
Osteoarthritis can be a very complex condition, it is not as black and white as repairing cartilage and expecting improvements in your pain levels.
When patients suffer from osteoarthritis, the cartilage begins to thin out and this leads to aggravation in your joints.
As the aggravation continues, your synovial fluid can become affected, as well as the surrounding structure of the joints such as muscles and tendons.
When the cells are introduced, they will be able to resolve the inflammation within the joint and this will reduce your arthritic pain quite quickly. The cells are also able provide repairs to the synovium thus allowing production of healthy and good quality synovial fluid which will help properly lubricate your joints. We have also observed MRI reports which indicate cartilage regrowth in some patients as well. At this point we need to direct our focus to the surrounding muscles and tendons of the joint, if they are weak and inflexible you may suffer from tendonitis. This does not mean the treatment has gone backwards, it simply means you need to spend some time to rebuild the strength & flexibility you have lost over the years.
The cells have shown a powerful effect on the immune system to the point where they are able to place the immune system in a state of tolerogenesis.
Once the immune system attack has settled, the cells are able to target inflamed joints and start their repairs in these areas, thus providing improvements to your pain levels as well as function of the joint
When the nerve cells are inflamed, this may cause the patient to notice symptoms such as
· Shooting, burning, tingling pains
· Hot and cold sensations
These are some of the most common side effects of inflamed nerves. The cells are able to repair the inflammation surrounding the nerve cells providing the ability to return to normal function.
We have noticed patients improve in other areas of their body when we treat their osteoarthritis. When it comes to chronic pain is safe to say where you feel pain, you would have inflammation. In previous patients & literature we have observed the cells ability to home to areas of inflammation in your body. Once settled in these areas, they will be able to start their repairs. At first sight they are able to resolve the inflammation thus reducing your pain, additionally to this the cells are able to provide multi-function effects to repair the area which in-turn can reduce the actual cause of aggrevation that started the inflammatory process
Your body naturally looks to repair any form of damage, however in certain cases it may only be able to do so with scar tissue.
Once the cells have homed to the damaged areas of your body, they are able to repair the damaged tissue and potentially differentiate into the surrounding cell types. EG: your body is now able to use the stem cells to repair the torn tendon with actual tendon tissue as opposed to scar tissue.
When a migraine attack is triggered (depending on the cause) this can lead to inflammation of the Dura around your brain.
This ongoing inflammation means your migraines can be triggered very easily & frequently.
The endothelial progenitor cells which are inclusive in the stem cell mix we provide are able to repair the inflamed blood vessels of the Dura and promote new healthy blood vessels. After these repairs, the Dura becomes healthier and trigger of the migraines can stop.
