Very recently new technology has come on the scene in orthopedics. Anyone with joint pain due to inflammation or arthritis may be a good candidate for stem cell therapy. Stem cells are the cells in the body which are capable of regenerating any tissue. In orthopedics stem cells are used to repair painful, inflamed tendons and ligaments about the joints. Also, stem cell injections into the joints for knee and hip arthritis have been very successful with pain relief and restoring joint motion and walking.
