Mesenchymal stem cell therapy in joint disease

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are known to have a potential for articular cartilage regeneration. Mesenchymal stem cells have the capacity to differentiate into a variety of connective tissue cells including bone, cartilage, tendon, muscle and adipose tissue.

Symptoms associated with the following conditions possibly treated by Stem cell injections for osteoarthritis:

  • Labral tears of the hip and shoulder
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Ligament injuries
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Biceps tendonitis

Recent research demonstrates that articular cartilage may be able to be repaired via percutaneous introduction of mesenchymal stem cells. Know more about Mesenchymal stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis .
