Regenerative Orthopaedic Medicine… Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that
can differentiate into specialized cells that are
capable of playing a role in helping the body
repair and rejuvenate itself. They can change
themselves into cells such as chondrocytes
capable of cartilage repair, myocytes which
are capable of muscle repair, tenocytes which
are capable of tendon repair, as well as cells
capable of bone and even nerve repair. Stem
cells can come from many different sources
in our own bodies including, blood, fat, bone
marrow, dental pulp, as well as many other
tissues. Stem cells can also come from sources
outside our own bodies including embryonic
tissue, amniotic tissue, and umbilical cord
blood. At Shore Orthopaedics, Dr. Charles
Krome (who has been performing regenerative
medicine procedures since 2008) uses stem
cells derived from the umbilical cord blood
donated from healthy mothers, along with
a patient’s own platelet rich plasma, to treat
a variety of orthopaedic/sports medicine
conditions including osteoarthritis of the knee,
hip, shoulder, ankle, etc., rotator cuff tears,
tennis elbow and other tendonopathies of the
body, plantar fasciitis, meniscal and ligament
injuries, as well as many other musculoskeletal
conditions.
There is no surgery or invasive procedures
done to the patient. No bone marrow aspiration.
No liposuction. The cells are ordered direct
from a tissue bank which screens the donated
cord blood for diseases and the cells come
specifically for each patient’s procedure the
morning of the stem cell injection. The cells

are thawed and mixed with the patient’s own
platelet rich plasma to maximize healing
capability, then injected directly into the
treatment area. Most injections are done under
ultrasound guidance to ensure appropriate
delivery into the joint being treated. There is no
HLA matching which means the cells will not
illicit an immune response from the patient.
The potential for healing and improved quality
of life is very high with umbilical cord derived
stem cells with minimal risks to the patient.

To see if you are a candidate for this
exciting regenerative therapy, please
schedule a consultation with Dr. Krome
to discuss your therapeutic options.
