Achilles Stem Cell Treatment
Regardless of treatment options, Achilles tendon injuries require a significant amount of time to heal. Stem cell treatment reduces recovery time and has proven successful in restoring motion and eliminating pain. During an outpatient visit, bone marrow is removed from the patient, processed in a centrifuge to concentrate the stem cells and then injected into the injured Achilles tendon. Rest and minimal use are prescribed for six to eight weeks after the surgery to allow for healing.
