Stem Cell Therapy uses Your Stem Cells to Treat Orthopedic Injuries, Arthritis and Other Degenerative Conditions.

Mesenchymal stem cells can be used successfully for healing and regeneration in the body. They are the most powerful treatment available for orthopedic regenerative procedures. Stem cells have been found to augment healing through reducing pathologic inflammation, and with the ability to differentiate into bone, cartilage and tendon cells. The stem cells utilized for the procedures are
harvested from the patient’s own body. They are harvested from bone marrow. They are not cells from an embryo, fat, placenta or donor source. The cells are taken directly from the patient’s body and are not manipulated. They are concentrated and re-injected with precise guidance to the area of degeneration to repair and regenerate.

Stem cells are very powerful cells and do their work in a variety of ways at the area injected. First, they increase mitochondrial transfer to the damage cells. The mitochondria are inside every cell and are the powerhouse of the cell. Stem cells injected around unhealthy cells will transfer their healthy mitochondria to the damaged cartilage cells. The healthy mitochondria then recharge the damage
arthritic cells.

Next, when injected into a degenerating joint, they can control the destructive inflammation found in arthritic joints. Severe arthritis in the joint creates a thick synovium filled with destructive macrophages. These cells become overactive and begin to destroy healthy cartilage cells further damaging the joint. Stem cells, when injected, detect the overactive macrophages and deactivate them, thus protecting the healthy cartilage from further damage and breakdown. They also instruct the macrophages to start to release helpful growth factors that aid in the repair and regenerative process.

Stem cells also help repair damage cells by responding to signaling from the damaged cartilage cells. The stem cells respond to the damaged cells signals and initiate a coordinated healing response to help them. The stem cells release growth factors that guide the healing process and recruit more cells to the area to help with the healing.

Another fascinating way stem cells work is through teaching the damage cells to start creating healthy proteins that can aid in tissue repair. They do this by secreting exosomes. Exosomes are pods carrying messenger RNA (mRNA). Messenger RNA encodes for protein synthesis. The exosome leaves the stem cell and enters the damage cell and donate its healthy mRNA. The healthy mRNA then starts to code for healthy regenerative proteins in the damage cell. So the stem cells help convert unhealthy damaged cells into healthy protein creating healing cells. It is pretty amazing what stem cells can do by converting unhealthy cartilage into healthy cartilage. We can regenerate!

Areas of Injury We Treat:

  • Arthritis
  • Achilles Tendon Tears
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Joint/Knee, Hip, Ankle Pain Injuries
  • Knee ACL, MCL, and Meniscus Tears
  • Leg/Arm Numbness & Weakness
  • Muscular/Ligament Strains
  • Neck, Upper Back, or Low Back Pain
Knee Surgery Alternatives are breakthrough, non-surgical stem cell treatments for people suffering from knee pain due to common injuries or other degenerative problems. If you have encountered a knee injury to the meniscus, ACL, or MCL, or have chronic knee pain due to a past injury or osteoarthritis (also known as “degenerative joint disease” or “wear and tear arthritis of the knee”), you may be a good candidate for the Regenerative Stem Cell Treatment. Traditional options for patients suffering from these issues include arthroscopic knee surgery to repair ligament tears, or total knee joint replacement. With both surgeries, months of rehab are required, and the patient must be aware of and prepared to take on the risks. As a knee surgery alternative, the Regenerative Stem Cell-SD procedure may help alleviate knee pain and the conditions that cause it with a simple office injection procedure. Patients are encouraged to walk the same day, and most experience little to no down time from the procedure.
Shoulder Surgery Alternatives are breakthrough, non-surgical stem-cell treatments for people suffering from shoulder pain due to common injuries and other problems. If you have encountered an injury to the rotator cuff, or experience pain related to shoulder tendonitis, tendenosis, arthritis or bursitis, you may be a good candidate for the Regenerative Stem Cell Treatment. Shoulder pain is a very common complaint, but shoulder surgery is particularly difficult due to the complexity of the joint. Post-surgical recovery can be painful and typically requires a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility to the shoulder. As an alternative to shoulder surgery, Regenerative Stem Cell Treatments may help alleviate shoulder pain and the conditions that cause it with a simple office injection procedure. Patients typically experience little to no down time from the procedure.


One day I was complaining in class about some sport related injuries that would cause pain in my knee and in my shoulder. That’s when a classmate introduced me to Rejuv Medical. I was treated with Platelet Rich Plasma Injections and Prolotherapy, and had a series of neuropathic pain treatments done as well. I can do things now I thought I would have to give up like volleyball, aerobics, etc. My pain is gone and I can enjoy so much now due to the treatments I received.

At Rejuv Medical, Dr. Baumgartner and Susan Schneider quickly diagnosed, and verified through testing, my stressed and fatigued conditions. They treated me and confidently stated my normal energy levels would return and I would literally feel years younger. They were exactly correct! Looking back through years of work, I realize I suffered from the insidious nature of stress, but never had my prior bouts of stress diagnosed or treated; until my visit to Rejuv Medical.

I was in so much pain 24/7, I was on all kinds of pain medicines and over the counter meds, too.  I was forced to grab the walls for balance and to walk. I cried many nights because I couldn’t sleep from the pain that seemed to be attacking my entire body. I wish that I had come to Rejuv Medical sooner, for it may have saved me from having a right knee replaced. Recently my left knee started to hurt and it became unbearable. I thought I was going to suffer like this for the rest of my life. Dr. Joel Baumgartner has cured me, I am practically pain free! I’VE-GOT-MY-LIFE-BACK! Thank You Dr. Baumgartner and staff!
