Gecko Joint and Spine’s stem cell therapy and PRP therapy addresses the underlying causes of pain while providing lasting relief and healing effects, all using stem cells stored in your body fat.

There are also stem capsules available from places like LCR Health which can help keep your body healthy and strong.

Treatment may also facilitate better cell-to-cell communication and stimulate new blood vessel growth for better blood flow to the affected area(s) through VEGF.

Common Orthopedic Conditions

Disorders of the joints, bones, muscles and connective ligaments, tendons and cartilage affect millions of Americans on a daily basis, producing symptoms ranging from reduced function to crippling pain.

Often called “wear-and-tear arthritis,” osteoarthritis occurs when the protective cartilage on the ends of your bones wears down over time, leaving you with the feeling of bone rubbing on bone, pain, drug dependence or some degree of disability. While osteoarthritis can damage any joint in your body, it most commonly affects joints in the hands, neck, lower back, knees and hips restricting the activities of a full, normal life. A usual course of orthopedic treatments may include surgery, cortisone injections, pain relievers or narcotics, each with mixed results.

Research indicates that many orthopedic issues arise fundamentally as a result of inflammation. Adult stem cells from your own body fat have the ability to reduce inflammation and repair or replace damaged bone, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and nerves, making them uniquely qualified for the job of treating your:

Degenerative spine disease
Joint pain/stiffness
Chronic tendonitis
What Does Stem Cell Therapy Do for Orthopedic Issues?

Stored in your adipose (fat) tissue is a type of stem cells known as mesenchymal stem cells, or MSCs. These cells could be likened to small “physicians” who diagnose and correct individual areas of the body in need of special attention.

MSCs have the capacity to detect changes in the body which are causing pain or dysfunction, and to respond and communicate with the local environmental needs to provide the correct tools needed for healing. These adult stem cells are commonly referred to as “repair cells” for their ability to heal injured organs or body parts, their primary functions being:

Accelerated tissue repair
Stimulated tissue regeneration
Decreased inflammation
Prevention of further cell death
Creation of new blood vessels
Re-introducing your own stem cells into damaged joints can stimulate new blood flow in the joints and reduce inflammation, allowing these stem cells to do their job as tiny little “physicians” in the process of healing. This treatment is also an option for chronic tendon issues, such as in the elbow or Achilles tendon, which have been resistant to other treatments.

Gecko is using your own adult stem cells, we are able to put your body’s own natural biology and healing capabilities to work for you.

The Procedure

Stem cell treatment at Gecko is a minimally invasive, same-day outpatient procedure with very little recovery or down time needed.

First, mini lidosuction or fat harvesting is done to obtain about a cup of adipose (fat) tissue from your hip or abdomen area.

Immediately thereafter, your adult stem cells are guided directly into the damaged joint and surrounding connective tissue using ultrasound guidance to ensure proper placement of the stem cells.
