Osteoarthritis affects 7 out of 10 people over the age of 50. Combating pain with a biological therapy based on the patient’s own stem cells is the aim of the Celstem treatment, the treatment for osteoarthritis with adult stem cells that we apply in Andorra. Thanks to stem cells, we will be able to reduce pain, delay more invasive therapies (prostheses), and recover the patient’s quality of life.
CELSTEM, the treatment for osteoarthritis with adult stem cells from Celular Clínic in Andorra, is recommended for anyone between 20 and 75 years of age who suffers from osteoarthritis in their knees, hips, shoulders, or ankle and who wants to avoid/delay a prosthesis and improve their quality of life.
It is indicated primarily for the treatment of pain in osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, shoulder, or ankle.
The patient’s stem cells are obtained from a small liposuction of the patient’s abdominal fat. Once obtained, they are purified and concentrated so they can be infiltrated in an eco-guided manner in the area of the injury. Mesenchymal cells can reduce inflammation and create new tissue, acting in the area where cartilage has been lost due to wear and tear.
