Steven Samson is an internationally recognized pioneer in orthopedic regenerative medicine.
He founded the Orthohealing Center, a premier medical clinic in Los Angeles, California, specializing in non-surgical orthopedic and cell-based medicine.
Recently, Dr. Samson created Bio-recovery labs, utilizing machine-based energy including shock waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing capacity.
Autology is a specialty in the use of stem cells to stimulate natural healing.
What are Stem Cells?
The term “stem cell” has been thrown around a lot in recent years, and it’s important to understand what it actually means.
Stem cells are cells that have the ability to self-renew and differentiate into other cell types. In other words, they have the ability to repair and regenerate damaged tissue.
There are different types of stem cells, including:
- Embryonic stem cells, which are derived from embryos
- And adult stem cells, which are found in adults.
There are also induced pluripotent stem cells, which are created from adult cells that have been genetically reprogrammed to act like embryonic stem cells.
The most common type of stem cell therapy is autologous stem cell therapy, which uses your own stem cells.
This can be done by harvesting bone marrow from your hip or fat from your abdomen, and injecting it into the damaged area.
This type of therapy is still considered experimental, but there is some evidence that it can be effective in treating conditions.
The difference between orthopedic and cell-based medicine
Orthopedic medicine is the branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system.
Orthopedic surgeons use a variety of techniques to treat these conditions, including surgery, medication, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes.
Cell-based medicine is a relatively new field that uses a patient’s own cells to treat various conditions.
This type of treatment is often used in regenerative medicine, which aims to repair or replace damaged tissue.
Cell-based therapies are also being used to treat cancer and other diseases.
Regenerative medicine is a branch of medicine that focuses on the regeneration of tissues and organs.
This can be done through the use of stem cells, growth factors, and other cell-based therapies.
Regenerative medicine has the potential to treat a wide variety of conditions, including injuries, degenerative diseases, and congenital defects.
One of the major benefits of regenerative medicine is that it has the potential to heal tissues and organs without surgery or drugs.
This can lead to fewer side effects and faster recovery times for patients.
Additionally, regenerative therapies can be customized to each individual patient, which means that the treatments are more likely to be effective.
