Damon Noto, MD, a physician with Spine & Joint Center in Hackensack, N.J., is now using adult stem cells harvested from the patient to help stimulate tissue growth during spinal procedures, according to a practice news release.
Dr. Noto harvests stem cells from fat over the oblique muscles and then injects them into the injured joint. The minimally invasive, office-based procedure takes 90 minutes and patients often experience a substantial recovery in 6-8 weeks, according to the report.
