Don’t let a bad hip dictate your life

With wear and repetitive use, your hip can start to become less reliable than it used to be. Hip pain can be a difficult part of your daily life. Traditional treatments are limited to long-term pain management or invasive surgical procedures that require physical therapy. The most common surgical options are hip replacement surgery and hip resurfacing. These treatments can result in months of painful recovery and long-term in-patient rehab while you rebuild your joint strength and mobility to self-sufficiency once again.

Regenerative medicine alternatives

With regenerative medicine, patients can often avoid the pain and suffering that is part and parcel of surgery and see rapid results. That is because regenerative medicine uses your body’s own biologics to promote its natural healing process. Advantages of regenerative medicine include limited scarring around the hip and the avoidance of lengthy physical therapy.

SRMC provides the following treatments:

  • Stem Cell Therapy (using your own stem cells)
  • Platelet Rich Plasma (concentration of the platelets in your own blood)

As both stem cell therapy and PRP regenerative medicine procedures use your body’s own biologics, the risk of adverse side effects is minimal to non-existent. Led by Dr. Lucy Hostetter, Seattle Regenerative Medicine Center provides advanced regenerative medicine options to patients suffering from hip arthritis.

Treating chronic hip pain conditions with stem cell and PRP Therapy

The following conditions have been successfully treated with stem cell and PRP therapy:

  • Osteoarthritis of the hip 
  • Deterioration of the hip joint 
  • Hip labral tears
  • Hip tendon tears

Stem cell therapy for hip pain

The use of mesenchymal stem cells represents a significant advancement in regenerative medicine, including the way we treat hip-related pain and injury. These stem cells provide a way for pain sufferers to use their body’s own biologic response to injury to recover quickly. Stem cells can promote healing in sections of the body that are in constant use or have low blood flow. In either of these situations, the body’s recovery time is slowed.

Osteoarthritis of the hip: The progressive degeneration of the tissue in and around the hip joint

The degeneration caused by osteoarthritis will cause impairment of function, traditionally treated with anti-inflammatory drugs and/or strong opioid pain medications. The invasive surgical route can be traumatic to the body and there is no guarantee of long-term pain relief.

With stem cells extracted from your own bone marrow, under image-guided ultrasound, we inject the concentrated stem cells or platelet-rich plasma into the site of the degeneration. This treatment provides an anti-inflammatory action that helps with pain relief and a regenerative activity that provides tissue healing and helps restore the hip joint and surrounding tissue. 

What are the symptoms of an arthritic hip?

Symptoms of arthritis of the hip include pain when moving the joint, stiffness, and decreased range of motion. In the past, your only options included physical therapy, medications, and surgery. In some cases, a hip replacement was deemed necessary.
