Stem Cells for Arthritis – Innovation in Technology and Medicine
The biggest advantage of stem cell therapy is that unlike with surgery; this procedure can be conducted within a day and there is minimal downtime. Patients can return to work within just a day or two and they are saved from taking time from work. Surgery comes with an increased risk of infection, but in case of stem cells, patients don’t have to worry about infection. Earlier one could get stem cells only from human umbilical cord, but now stem cells can also be obtained from the bone marrow of a healthy person and used to treat arthritis.
