Mother cells

Prof. Dr. Elgeadi's team has traumatologists specializing in stem cell treatments, allowing you to recover and restore damaged tissues quickly and effectively.

Main applications of stem cells

Muscle tissue regeneration

The application of stem cells allows rapid regeneration of muscle and tendon tissues. This type of treatment is recommended for elderly patients, as well as in cases of muscle injuries. Reduces recovery time and significantly relieves pain.

muscle tears

In case of muscle tears, stem cell treatment has multiple benefits. It contributes to tissue regeneration, allowing the patient to carry out an active recovery, avoiding the loss of muscle mass.

Chronic tendinopathies

Treatment with stem cells can have very positive effects in cases of chronic injuries located in the tendons. These treatments significantly relieve the patient's muscle pain, helping tissue regeneration and contributing to its strengthening.

Osteochondral lesions

In this case, the stem cells are extracted from the patient himself. Subsequently, they are cultured and implanted in the chondral lesion. This causes the stem cells to directly receive blood supply from the bone.

Prof. Dr. Elgeadi's team has some of the best traumatologists specializing in stem cell treatments. Especially in cases of regeneration of damaged tissues or worn cartilage.

Our doctors will be able to treat you in our network of clinics in the Community of Madrid, applying the most appropriate stem cell treatment to improve your quality of life.

Resolving doubts…

There are different types of stem cells depending on the characteristics they present. First, unipotent cells, which are those that produce only one type of cell. They are constantly renewed and a fragment can be extracted for later implantation.

The multipotent cells, also known as mesenchymal cells, are located in the bone marrow and are the most appropriate for tissue transplantation or tissue repair, since they do not usually generate rejection. These multipotent stem cells can repair tissues, bone marrow fat or cartilage.

On the other hand, they differentiate pluripotent stem cells, which are those that arise from genetically reprogrammed cells. Oligopotent stem cells, which are the least common, and totipotent cells, which are formed at the time of the union of the egg and sperm.

How are stem cells obtained?

Stem cells come from different parts of the human body. The vast majority come from the bone marrow, which is the largest producer of stem cells in the human body. However, there are other sources of stem cells, for example, blood located in the umbilical cord.

Furthermore, another of the main sources of stem cells is the peripheral blood that runs through the human body. These cells are used in transplants and are obtained through a process known as apheresis, in which the different types of cells are separated.

Regenerative medicine treatments with stem cells are an innovative therapy that are on the order of the day due to their great capacity to regenerate damaged tissues.

In this type of therapies, mesenchymal stem cells from the bone marrow are used, since they have the ability to suppress inflammation and modulate the secretion responses of pro-inflammatory substances. The cells used are multipotent stem cells, from which other cells are generated.

Typically, its application focuses on the repair, replacement or regeneration of cells, tissues or organs to recover any damaged function, whether due to congenital defects, trauma or aging.

The characteristics of this type of stem cell treatment make it a promising therapy, due to its regenerative, immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory capacity.

Given its ability to increase cartilage density, it is a good alternative for young and elderly patients.

Treatment with stem cells is especially recommended in cases where tissue regeneration or healing is required. Some of the pathologies treatable with stem cell therapy are:

Cartilage and meniscus injuries

The most common sports injuries are meniscus tears. Therapy with stem cell treatments is of great help for cartilage regeneration.

Bone injuries and fractures

One of the most common diseases in which stem cell treatment is usually used is: osteoporosis, this disease consists of a degeneration of bone tissues, making the bones fragile.

Osteoarthritis

It is a form of arthritis and consists of a disease produced in the joints and as a consequence, deterioration occurs in the cartilage of the affected joint. It is very common to use this stem cell treatment on the cartilage in the knee or shoulder.

Ligament and tendon injuries

Another of the most common sports injuries in trauma clinics is rupture of ligaments and tendons, specifically, rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament. The use of this therapy favors tissue regeneration.

Avascular bone necrosis

This pathology consists of the death of the patient's bone tissue as a result of a lack of blood flow. This disease is also known as osteonecrosis.

You will ask yourself What are stem cell therapies for?.
Stem cell treatments have many benefits. Firstly, as explained, they have the ability to regenerate tissues and repair injuries to bones, tendons and cartilage.

Furthermore, due to its ability to secrete pro-inflammatory substances, stem cells help reduce inflammation, relieving the patient's pain.

In cases where patients have chronic diseases that cause weakness, this treatment can be of great help, as stem cells help to regenerate tissues and organs that are not capable of regenerating on their own.
