Historically, those with chronic joint pain had limited treatments options: physical therapy, medications, surgery or just living with the pain.  However, in the last several years a handful of pioneering experts have begun using the bodies natural healing mechanisms to treat chronic joint conditions. Stem Cell Therapy; also known as Regenerative Medicine, uses the body’s own adult stem cells to heal without needing invasive surgery.

Board-Certified Neurosurgeon Charles S. Theofilos M.D. of The Spine Center in Palm Beach Gardens and Port St. Lucie has been featured on FOX 29 News, The Palm Beach Post and TC Palm for his pioneering use of stem cells. 

Quick Facts About Stem Cells (click to open)
  • Injury, osteoarthritis or degeneration are common causes of severe bone, joint and ligament injuries.
  • Historically, surgical intervention was the only option to treat these conditions until a new, innovative technique was introduced: Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy.
  • An alternative solution to invasive surgery, the therapeutic use of stem cells is now being used worldwide to treat multiple conditions that were once considered to be chronic.
  • During these innovative procedures, only the patients’ own naturally occurring stem cells are used.  We do not use donor cells.

Where do the Adult Mesenchymal Stem Cells come from?
In adults, stem cells are present in a variety of tissues and bones.  For Dr. Theofilos’ pioneering treatment,  the most common sources of stem cells are bone marrow or fat (or adipose) tissue.  During these treatments, only the patients’ own cells are used.

How Is Stem Cell Therapy Performed?
Dr. Theofilos has a unique, three-step approach to prepare the area for stem cells which increases the success rate of these treatments.

The following technique is done in his office procedure suite:
Dr. Theofilos takes a patient’s own blood and spins it in a specialized centrifuge to isolate large amounts of a specific protective protein. The isolated enzyme is then injected directly into the patient’s joints to neutralize the bad enzymes and prepare for the arriving stem cells.
The stem cells harvested from the patient’s own body are then injected into the optimized spinal discs or joints. A specialized mixture of growth factors and proteins that were previously isolated from the patient’s blood is injected, neutralizing the acidity in the body caused by injured spinal discs, vertebrae or joints, which improves the regenerative process.

How do Adult Mesenchymal Stem Cells know what type of tissue or bone to develop into?
Adult Mesenchymal Stem Cells are a specific type of cell that has the ability to match the identity of the cells around them through a process known as “cell signaling”. For example, Adult Mesenchymal Stem Cells delivered to the damaged bone can develop into bone cells or joints to develop into cartilage to aid in tissue repair.

Will my body reject the adult stem cells?
No, since they are your own cells collected from your tissue there is little chance of rejection.

“I had pain in my lumbar & down my leg for 4 years. I saw many doctors all over the country but no one could help. Dr T performed the 3 Stem Cell Platelet Procedure & now 6 weeks later I feel 90% better. I do PT, walk and have started to regain my daily activity schedule.. He’s well worth a visit if you’ve had no relief elsewhere.”
