What are stem cells?


Stem cells have the unique power to develop into specialized cell types in your body, and for that reason, can serve as a repair system. Stem cells provide new cells as your body grows and replaces specialized cells that are damaged or destroyed. They can divide continuously to produce new cells. As they divide, they can change into the other types of cell that make up your body.

Stem cells can differentiate, regenerate and can lead to faster healing. For many patients, stem cell therapy provides them with pain relief that can last for years or even permanently.

How do stem cells injections work?


Stem cell therapy uses your body’s own cells as a part of its natural processes to speed up healing. For that reason, you will be at minimal risk of your body rejecting the treatment.

It is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t require surgery. Amniotic fluid is injected into the injured or arthritic area combined with your own PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma).

Often the treatment method used to treat an injury might not be as long but the post-procedural recovery time is. With stem cell therapy, you’d be looking at minimal recovery time. Thus, you can expect a minimal interruption in your daily activities with this treatment.

Is Stem Cell Treatment Effective?


With stem cell therapy, you are not just treating your symptoms, you are repairing yourself cell by cell using nature’s most outstanding biological miracle, the stem cell. Since they have the  potential to develop into such a broad range of cells, stem cells can be used to help in the repair of tissue.

Proponents of stem cell therapy point to clinical studies that have shown generally positive  results.

The science behind stem cell therapy is constantly expanding and Dr. Ruht will continue to be on the cutting edge of training and techniques.

Concerns Involving Stem Cell Treatment


There are potential risks including infection, bleeding and tendon compromise. These risks are minimized by proper technique including chloroxylenol scrub prior to the procedure at home repeated in the office and ChloraPrep. These are the best medicines available to avoid infection. Important to know is whether or not you are known to be a carrier of MRSA.

Private insurance companies do not cover stem cell therapy or other regenerative procedures. It is considered experimental and therefore is a self-pay procedure that cannot be billed to insurance.

Stem cell therapy is an elective procedure requiring an office consultation with Dr. Ruht to determine if the treatment is appropriate for you. There are contraindications which will be discussed at the time of that consultation.


With years of experience treating orthopaedic and musculoskeletal injuries, Dr. Ruht strongly believes in the power of natural healing and the future of regenerative medicine. Dr. Ruht offers his patients the opportunity to receive nationally respected regenerative medicine treatments close to home.

THE STEM CELL PROCEDURE IS PERFORMED IN THE OFFICE WITH LOCAL ANESTHESIA AND DOES NOT REQUIRE GENERAL ANESTHESIA OR HOSPITALIZATION.
