Stem cell medicine is a pioneering field dealing with the regrowing, repairing and replacing of damaged cells, organs and tissues.
Stem cells are attracted to inflammation in the body and spring into action to repair and replace injured tissue. Stem cell therapy enables scientists to grow more of these cells in laboratories so they can be used to create new tissue, replace damaged cells, and unravel disease mechanisms.
Common conditions that can be treated include joint arthritis, tendon and ligament tears, cartilage damage and non-healing fractures.
Specialists create personalised treatment plans.
As with any invasive medical treatment, it is important to do your research into potential risks or side effects before going ahead with the procedure.
