Stem Cell Therapy

At Central Indiana Orthopedics, we’re excited to offer cutting-edge regenerative medicine options including Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy and stem cell therapy.

Regenerative medicine is a new way of treating injuries and diseases that uses a patient’s own specially grown tissues and cells for the treatment of damaged joints, muscles, tendons or ligaments.

Stem cells, derived from your own tissue, are your body’s natural healing cells. They have the potential to recognize tissue injury and repair injured cells. Central Indiana Orthopedics has the technology to produce a solution rich with your own stem cells as a non-surgical option to treat joint pain. The procedure is performed in a three-step process, which in total takes less than three hours:

  1. Harvest: Mini-liposuction is performed under local anesthesia, which takes less than 20 minutes.
  2. Prepare: Cells collected from liposuction are processed under a closed, sterile system that is not exposed to air. This step typically takes two hours and the patient is welcome to leave the office and return once processing is complete.
  3. Deploy: Viable cells are counted and photographed for your records, then deployed/injected into tissues, joints or veins.

Stem cell therapy can be used to treat joint pain including arthritis, tendon and ligament injuries, and other musculoskeletal problems. This procedure for orthopedic injuries/conditions is available at our Muncie office with Dr. Kerry Bennett.

Not everyone is a candidate for stem-cell therapy; therefore, Dr. Bennett conducts a thorough examination and history of the patient before stem cell therapy is considered. Once he and the patient feel confident that stem cell therapy is a viable treatment option, an appointment for the procedure is scheduled. Procedure costs will vary; however, this is typically a procedure which is not covered by insurance and thus will be an out-of-pocket expense.
