Stem Cell Injections for Knee Pain, Arthritis, Tendinitis & More
Regenerative medicine is a game-changing area of medicine with the potential to fully heal damaged tissues, offering solutions and hope for people who have conditions that were once thought to be beyond repair.
For many patients with debilitating knee osteoarthritis, treatment options are limited: steroid injections, joint replacement surgery, physical therapy, etc. At The Root Cause Clinic, in Tampa, new cutting-edge treatment options like umbilical cord stem cell injections may be used to successfully treat patients with knee osteoarthritis, Achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, and degenerative arthritis.
For clarification, this type of stem cell comes from the Wharton’s jelly of umbilical cords – not an embryo. While some people may have ethical issues with embryonic stem cell therapy, most everyone agrees that the use of amniotic stem cell therapy raises no ethical or moral questions.
How Does Umbilical Cord Stem Cell Therapy Work?
Stem cell treatment takes advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself. With amniotic stem cell therapy, our medical staff injects stem cells from amniotic tissues into your body. These stem cells have anti-inflammatory properties, similar to cortisone and steroid shots. However, stem cell therapy goes far beyond the benefits of standard “injection therapy.”
While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief and over time can cause degeneration of soft tissues, stem cells actually restore degenerated tissue while providing pain relief. The growth factors in amniotic stem cells may replace damaged cells in your body. Additionally, stem cell injections contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates joints and tendons, easing the pain and helping restore mobility.

What Should I Expect with an Outpatient Stem Cell Therapy Procedure?
If you are having a stem cell therapy procedure in conjunction with another surgical procedure, your recommendations may change. Consult with your physician on the guidelines and restrictions for your specific case.
Is Orthopedic Stem Cell Therapy Covered By My Insurance?
No. Because stem cell injections are considered investigational for orthopedic applications, most insurance companies will not cover the cost. Please contact our office to discuss cash payment options.
