Who Can Benefit From Non-Surgical Herniated Disk Treatment?
Almost any patient who is suffering from chronic back pain caused by herniated disks can benefit from spinal rejuvenation therapy.
How Does Non-Surgical Herniated Disk Treatment Work?
Adult stem cells from a patient’s own bone marrow harness the ability of the body to repair itself. Adult stem cell therapy combined with platelet-rich plasma therapy is a clinically proven non-surgical option for the treatment of herniated disks due to the cells’ ability to repair and regenerate discs.
Stem cells from bone marrow also contain substances that have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, which may lessen pain and swell from herniated disks. Platelet-rich plasma is used in conjunction with adult stem cells to improve the treatment’s results. PRP uses the healing growth factors found in your own blood to initiate connective tissue healing and provide a more robust and favorable healing environment.
These procedures are same-day outpatient procedures that take place at our accredited surgery center.
The treatment consists of a bone marrow extraction from the patient’s hip by medical personnel.
Also, a small blood sample is drawn from a vein in your arm to harvest platelet-rich plasma.
Using well-established protocols and processing methods, the stem cells are concentrated from fat or bone marrow by experienced technicians in our onsite laboratory.
The blood sample is processed to concentrate the healing growth factors. The stem cell and PRP are then injected into the back or spine using sophisticated video graphic visualization. This ensures that the exact location of the injury is treated. The procedure takes approximately 2-3 hours from start to finish. Follow-up visits to monitor progress occur one month, three months, and six months following treatment.

Common Questions About Herniated Disc Rejuvenation Therapy and Regenerative Orthopedics
Regenerative orthopedics combines traditional orthopedic therapies with specialized regenerative medicine treatments such as stem cells and platelet-rich plasma therapy.
Adult stem cells from a patient’s own bone marrow harness the ability of the body to repair itself. Adult stem cells are very effective for treating spinal issues because of the cells’ ability to repair and regenerate cartilage, discs, ligaments, and tendons by differentiating into these specialized types of cells.
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is a natural treatment that uses the healing and growth factors in your blood to reduce inflammation, improve blood flow and increase tissue healing in the area it is injected.
PRP concentrates the healing and growth factors in your blood into an injectable treatment. The PRP improves blood flow to the affected areas of your back and spine, reduces inflammation, and stimulates healing.
As opposed to most other treatments for spinal issues, non-surgical herniated disk rejuvenation therapy:
- Is drug-free and surgery-free
