During his career as an orthopedic surgeon, Kenneth Pettine treated hundreds of patients who were suffering from joint pain. Through his research into mesenchymal stem cells, Pettine has discovered alternative ways to treat orthopedic pain without the need for surgery. On this page, you can learn about some of the applications for adult stem cells, and if you’d like to learn more, please contact him today.
Stem Cell Information
Learn about the basics of stem cells. What are mesenchymal stem cells, and why are they important? Learn about some of the history of stem cell research. What is the difference between embryonic and adult stem cells?
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)
Learn why this may be the most important stem cell in your body! Learn why this stem cell is so important for the treatment of orthopedic and spine problems. Learn other reasons why the mesenchymal stem cell is so important!
MSC’s Becoming Chondroblasts, Fibroblasts, Osteoblasts
Learn how the MSC can differentiate into a brand new cartilage, ligament, or bone cell. This may be part of the reason MSCs can help treat arthritis in your joints, damaged discs in your spine, nonhealing fractures, and chronic tendonitis.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells for the Hip
Learn how the MSC may be able to help treat various pathologic conditions of the hip, such as arthritis, avascular necrosis, and labral tears.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells for the Knee
Learn how the MSC may be able to help treat various pathologic conditions of the knee, such as arthritis, partial ligament tears, and lesions in the bone from arthritis or avascular necrosis.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells for the Shoulder
Learn how the MSC may be able to help treat various pathologic conditions of the shoulder, such as arthritis and rotator cuff abnormalities, both to avoid surgery and help make the surgical results better.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells for the Ankle
Learn how the MSC may be able to help treat various pathologic conditions of the ankle, such as arthritis, and help avoid an ankle fusion or replacement, and perhaps chronic instability causing ankle ligament sprains.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells for Small Joints
Learn how the MSC may be able to help treat various pathologic conditions of smaller joints, such as your toes, bones in your feet, fingers, wrists, and elbows, with the most common problem being osteoarthritis.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells for Low Back Pain
Learn how the MSC may be able to help treat low back pain and other spinal conditions.
I.V. Infusion of Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Learn what all this means. Learn what is the rationale for this treatment and why it might be worth considering.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells for Autoimmune Conditions
Learn how the MSC may be able to help treat autoimmune conditions such as Crohn’s, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells for Fibromyalgia
Learn more about this debilitating condition and what the latest research indicates. Learn how MSCs may be able to help treat fibromyalgia.
Mesenchymal Stem Cell Facials
Learn the rationale for why MSCs may be the ultimate method for increasing collagen under your facial skin. Learn the specifics of this treatment.
How to Obtain Mesenchymal Stem Cells?
Learn the different places and methods that MSCs can be obtained from your own body and other sources. Learn the pluses and minuses of these methods. What does the FDA think?
