ThriveMD determines whether you are a candidate for stem cell therapy at a one-on-one consultation at one of our Colorado facilities. Steps such as careful physical examination and review of appropriate imaging (x-ray and/or MRI) take place. To learn more about what can make your condition suitable, please view one of the specific sections below.
By using adult stem cells from your own adipose (fat) tissue and bone marrow, the body accepts the new tissue as its own, eliminating the risk of rejection. Also, because the stem cells are from your own body, there is no risk of contracting a transmittable infectious disease from a donor patient. Other risks associated to joint replacement surgery, such as the increased risk of heart attack in the first month post knee and hip replacement procedures, is avoided as well.
Like any procedure, there is a minute risk of infection at the liposuction site of the fat collection and at the injection site. To minimize that risk, you will be provided with 7 day course of antibiotics.
“Best medical decision I ever made! The stem cell procedure is quick, easy and has no recovery down time! Great alternative to surgery if that is an option. Dr. Brandt and his team are first class. I highly recommend them as your first choice!”Brenda from Grandby, Colorado, patient follow-up
“The injections in soft tissue of left replaced knee have made a Huge difference. The right knee is continuing to get better noticeably each week. Everything I do is getting easier because I’m not in constant pain. I never want another knee replacement. My experience with Thrive has been enjoyable.”Harvey from Vail Valley, Colorado, patient follow-up
