Your Regenerative Medicine Solutions

Dr. McConnell’s Regenerative Medicine techniques are changing how patients heal. Stem cells act as natural healers. Recent advancements in stem cell therapy have allowed the use of stem cells for orthopedic treatment. At Charleston Sports Medicine, Dr. McConnell harnesses the healing power of stem cells using the following therapies:

  • Adipose Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells (ADMSC) – A minimally invasive procedure where stem cells are collected from fat cells found in the abdomen
  • Bone Marrow Aspiration Cocentrate Therapy (BMAC) – A minimally invasive procedure where stem cells are collected by aspirating the bone marrow from the back of the patient’s pelvis using a small needle.
  • Stem Cell Therapies and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) – stem cells are capable of repairing the damage to an orthopedic injury in an accelerated time with pain relief resulting within 2-3 weeks.
  • Prevecare Supplements- Supplements can greatly improve the body’s ability to heal following stem cell therapy. The use of pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements is recommeneded. Charleston Sports Medicine offers a customized program of Prevecare Supplements for patients.

Charleston Sports Medicine is harnessing the unique biologic properties of the placental tissues to improve clinical outcomes for our patients. Regenerative treatments, such as Amniotic Allografts, have been shown to substantially shorten the time it takes for patients to make a healthy recovery from joint replacement, join reconstruction and spine surgery, returning them to normal activities quicker. Learn more about Amniotic Allografts:

  • What are amniotic stem cells? Amniotic tissue is derived from the amniotic sac and has the potential to become (regenerate) any one of a number of different cells, such as skin, blood, or bone cells. It provides a promising alternative to surgery by promoting safe and natural healing.
  • Is Amniotic Regenerative Medicine safe? Amniotic Tissue Allografts are both safe and effective. The injections have been used over 10,000 times in the United States with no reported adverse side effects and have 100% safety record in Europe with 100,000’s of patients. Amniotic Tissue Allografts should not be confused with stem cells from embryos. This type of stem cell comes from the amniotic sac-not an embryo.
  • What conditions can amniotic stem cell injections treat? Amniotic stem cell therapy may be useful in treating pain associated with the following:
    • Knee osteoarthritis
    • Rotator cuff tendonitis
    • Degenerative arthritis
    • Achilles tendonitis
  • What benefits are included in amniotic injection therapy? Amniotic injections are steroid-free, naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents. The injections contain hyaluronic acid (for lubricating cartilage and stimulating cartilage growth).
