Stem Cells for Hips: What Types of Cells?
The stem cells used for hip pain are the patients own stem cells. There are many scientific reasons that this works out to be the best form of treatment, but another reason is simply in the United States if the stem cells are not the orients own cells, they are considered drugs and cannot be used as no stem cell drugs are approved for the treatment of hip pain.
Your own stem cells known as adult autologous stem cells, have unique properties which make them very well suited to do the best job in treating your own condition.
They are from your own body and there is no possibility of immune rejection. They resist infection. They are smart. These stem cells are innately programmed to know how to repair. Repair and regenerate are the hallmarks for which stem cells are considered so valuable.
