Regenerative Medicine & Pain Management Specialist

Regenerative Medicine & Pain Management Specialist

This article was written with the help of Dr. John Serpa, who is an integral part of our Team of Experts at Miami Stem Cell® and is certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology with Sub-specialty Certification in Pain Management from the prestigious Cornell University in New York. In addition, Dr. Serpa possesses tremendous expertise in Regenerative Medicine and the Stem Cell Therapy arena. Having a true passion for practicing medicine, Dr. Serpa has received numerous awards and accolades that have made him extremely well-known in the South Florida community as “the doctor with the golden hands”, a true testament to his post-procedure now famous coined phrase: “Today I Have No Pain®!”

When people are experiencing excruciating joint pain and have already unsuccessfully tried several options including: exercising, multiple physical therapy sessions, holistic medicine, opioid medications, change of diet, taken supplements and exhausted all their alternatives, at that point, there are basically only two choices left: Joint Replacement Surgery or Stem Cell Therapy.

In recent years, there have been dramatic advances in Stem Cell Therapy which have basically revolutionized how cutting-edge physicians now manage pain more efficiently. Dr. Serpa believes that in less than five years, Health Insurance companies will be forced to cover Regenerative Medicine procedures, not only because patients and their families are becoming more educated about these treatments, but also based on an increasing number of reliable scientific studies that validate their effectiveness. Stem Cell Injections on elderly patients (70 and older) have proven to be a viable solution to control their pain and improve their overall quality of life, all without the risks involved with an invasive surgery.

One of my favorite patient stories is the one about a 96 year old lady that came in for a consultation (assisted by a walker) about seven years ago and even though we explained to her that (at the time) we only had in-house data about the effectiveness of Stem Cell Therapy up to a 90 year old, she insisted in being evaluated by our Team of Experts. In addition, the patient’s daughter basically begged us to perform the treatment on her mom (mostly because her cardiac condition could not allow her to undergo a major knee replacement surgery) so we then proceeded to perform an Autologous Stem Cell Transplant from her bone marrow and surprisingly, in the patient’s first follow up (6 weeks after the procedure) this 96 year old patient came into our office without the need of her walker!

Currently, this procedure is an important part of our history and subsequently we have successfully treated thousands of elderly patients (from 70 to 102 years old) since then. In addition, we now also boost the effects of this non-invasive Stem Cell Treatment by adding the latest in Biological Products. While to this day, there are still various conflicting views on the effectiveness of Stem Cell Therapy on patients older than 70, we have thousands of cases in our database that prove otherwise.

In conclusion, Stem Cell Therapy far outweighs in benefits when compared to the many risks related to having surgery, particularly in these key areas:

  • No Hospitalization Required / Stem Cell Treatments are conducted in only a few hours and the patient gets to go home right after the procedure.
  • No Risk of Infection / Stem Cell Therapy uses Autologous Stem Cells collected from your own body.
  • No Risk of General Anesthesia / Stem Cell Treatments only use localized minimal sedation.
  • Shorter Recovery / Down Time since the recovery process for Stem Cell Therapy is much easier and shorter than surgical recovery. Most patients do not experience any pain or swelling after 24 hours. This means you can quickly return to your normal life.
  • Requires much less post-procedure pain medication.

Miami Stem Cell® continues to be at the forefront in the clinical application of Stem Cell Treatments in America and we effectively treat a wide variety of conditions with minimally invasive procedures that include:

  • Arthritis (pain in the knee, shoulders, hips, spine, cervix and other joints).
  • Sports injuries (Tennis Player’s Elbow, Golfer’s Shoulder, etc.).
  • Degeneration of lumbar discs / Sciatica and pain in the lower back.
  • Fibromyalgia.
  • Tendinitis / Carpal Tunnel.
  • Sexual dysfunction in men and women.
  • Congestive Heart Disease.
  • Coronary artery disease.
  • Peripheral Vascular Condition.
  • Asthma / COPD / Respiratory problems.
  • Urinary incontinence.
  • Hair restoration.
  • Facial, neck and hand rejuvenation.
  • Intravenous Multi-Vitamin infusions.
  • Micro-Nutritional Testing / Micro-Nutrition.

Give Stem Cells a Try Before Undergoing an Invasive Joint Surgery!

Give Stem Cells a Try Before Undergoing an Invasive Joint Surgery!

Miami Stem Cell® continues to be at the forefront in Stem Cell Therapy advancements and in this article, I will discuss in detail why treating joint related pain with Regenerative Treatments first and often even in lieu of surgery, can be extremely beneficial and should always be the primary option you try before undergoing certain types of invasive surgical procedures.

On a daily basis, we continue to see a myriad of patients that come to us complaining about joint pain even after having had surgery, a large percentage of them suffering with back / spine pain related issues in particular. Therefore, my objective here is to reiterate the importance of understanding that if a patient already has a titanium implant on their back (or basically any other foreign object implanted on another joint), our doctors would be somewhat limited to further treat your existing pain.

In the case of the spine (a critical area and prime example of what I am trying to convey here), our treatments are restricted to only certain specific areas that they can target after a surgical procedure, since we could not treat the actual titanium implanted vertebrate and thus, lessening the powerful benefits of our Regenerative Medicine Treatments. In addition, invasive surgeries involve many correlated troublesome issues, like the risk of general anesthesia, health complications, required extensive physical therapy sessions and also long periods of downtime, all of which could be avoided using our non-invasive Stem Cell Therapy option.

When a patient is considering the use of Regenerative Treatments such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMAC), commonly called ‘Stem Cells’ or mixtures with Biological products for treatment, the amount needed and location of the injection depends on the part of the body treated. Research evidence shows that injected biologics have a mixture of multiple cellular growth factors that work by ‘boosting’ the body’s healing of the injured area through accelerated but very localized inflammation in the site injected ultimately leading to tissue healing. Soft tissue such as muscle, tendons, capsules of joints and parts of the intervertebral disc are the targets for this type of treatment.

The spine in particular is different than larger joints such as the knee, shoulder or hip in several important ways. First, these are larger joints that are easier to localize and inject, have mainly tendons running within them that can partially or completely torn which is best suited for biologic treatments. Larger quantities of biologic material can be easily injected in these areas. However, in the spine there are 3 additional critical factors whether in the low back (lumbar) or neck (cervical). First, each vertebral segment includes an intervertebral disc as well as 2 small joints (facets) on each side at each level so in the spine this can degeneration frequently occurs in multiple joints. Second, the nerve roots are located between the disc and the joints and the spinal cord in the neck and nerve sac (dural sac) in the lumbar spine is important and then precise placement of the injection is critical and should be performed only by a specialist with spine training and not who does occasional injections in this area. Therefore, it is critical that the patient have up to date diagnostic films including plain X-rays and MRI scan and possibly even a CT scan, so the spine specialist can locate the exact site of the pathology and discuss with the patient whether it is local to one area or side or more general. Since it is the small spinal joints, their surrounding tissue and the intervertebral discs that are targeted, biologics are more effective before severe degeneration and bone overgrowth occurs which can be seen on these radiologic studies. The goal of the treatment is to both decrease pain and allow some resolution of the soft tissue swelling of the disc and joints.

In conclusion, the cellular immunotherapy space has exploded over the past few years and we are now entering the cell therapy revolution. The progress in this space has been unprecedented and Miami Stem Cell® has always been at the forefront using the latest technology and state-of-theart procedures to control pain.

Miami Stem Cell® opens in Coral Gables!

Miami Stem Cell® opens in Coral Gables!

In an effort to better serve our local and international clientele, Miami Stem Cell® is excited to announce that we are moving our main office to beautiful Coral Gables effective in mid-January 2020!

Our previous Miami Stem Cell® South Miami practice began to feel a bit crowded and somewhat disconnected over the last 10+ years of growth, in part because we now possess an impressive team of inhouse doctors, each with his or her own Regenerative Medicine specialties and thus, we needed a larger space that would accommodate the demands of our growing patient base.

To design our new medical office, we took the feedback from our medical staff & existing patients to create a space that was centrally located (right in the heart of beautiful Coral Gables) and that also felt fresh, modern, comfortable and familiar. Our new headquarters reflects our team’s collaborative effort, spirit and connection to our expanding brand, while also staying in-tune with our local community and medical premise. In fact, we continue to abide by our initial mission, which is to control orthopedic related pain and suffering by using the latest and most innovative Regenerative Medicine procedures and Stem Cell Therapy available today.

We first began the design process by diagnosing the problems with our existing space and defining what an ideal scenario would look like. The biggest issue we faced was the lack of more than one Operating Room and we are happy to report that our new Coral Gables location will have not one, but two neighboring Operating Rooms! This will immensely help our Team of Doctors schedule procedures more effectively, as well as being able to offer our patients more flexible scheduling options than ever before and ultimately, have our entire center operate more efficiently.

In addition, prime location was another key factor in the selection of our new office. When our search began, we did a ZIP code analysis to understand how our patients’ commutes would be affected. It was also extremely important for us to be strategically close to Miami International Airport (MIA) in order to better cater to our many international patients that come from around the world to be treated at our acclaimed Miami Stem Cell® Institute.

Consequently, our Coral Gables location is not only centrally located for our team, ideal for our growing patient base and most importantly, easily accessible to / from the Miami airport. In addition, our new Biltmore Way practice offers a wider selection of hotel / lodging options for our out-of-town patients that require to stay overnight before flying back home after their procedures. Furthermore, we will now offer our new “Concierge Service”, that will offer the option to provide our patients with free private transportation to and from our Biltmore Way office on the day of their procedures.

Please note that while our new headquarters will be located in Coral Gables, we will remain having satellite locations in South Miami and Hialeah to better serve the entire South Florida area. In addition, we want to also inform you that we will now be accepting most Health Insurance carriers at all our locations, applicable to certain Pain Management procedures, so please contact us for specific details about our new health insurance coverage.

So if you are suffering with unresolved pain and in need of a non-surgical alternative, please contact Miami Stem Cell® where you will have access to our unrivaled Team of US Board Certified doctors. Why limit yourself to getting just one doctor’s opinion when we can provide an entire team to help you?

Promising News Around Tendon Stem Cells!

Promising News Around Tendon Stem Cells!

Do you know the latest information when it comes to tendon stem cells? This newfound technology is revolutionary, and here at Miami Stem Cell, our team of experts wants to make you have all the latest information. It is our job to ensure you are pain-free with our regenerative medicine. Located in the heart of Miami, you can count on us! 

 

All About Scar Tissue

The buildup of scar tissue makes a recovery from torn rotator cuffs, jumper’s knee, and other tendon injuries a painful and challenging process, that often leads to secondary tendon ruptures. There is now research led by Carnegie’s Chen-Ming Fan and published in Nature Cell Biology that reveals the existence of tendon stem cells. These stem cells could potentially be harnessed to improve tendon healing and even to avoid surgery.

 

Tendons are the connective tissue that tethers our muscles to our bones. They improve our stability and facilitate the transfer of force that allows us to move. But they are also particularly susceptible to injury and damage.

 

Unfortunately, once tendons are injured, they rarely fully recover, which can result in limited mobility and require long-term pain management or even surgery. The culprit is fibrous scars, which disrupt the tissue structure of the tendon. That is where we come in!
