Stem Cell Therapy for Heel Pain and Tendonitis

What is Stem Cell Therapy for Heel Pain and Tendonitis?

Stem cell therapy uses growth factors for healing that are found in the human body. One part of the body that has high concentrations of hundreds of growth factors is the amniotic membrane, and the fluid used in stem cell therapy comes from this membrane. The tissue in the fluid is non-immunogenic, meaning that there is no risk of rejecting the tissue.

Stem cell therapy is used for heel or tendon pain to cushion or provide lubrication. When there is loss of lubrication due to age or injury, stem cell therapy can benefit the healing.

How does Stem Cell Therapy work?

In the office, Dr. Bier injects a fluid containing stem cells into the affected area. The stem cell fluid modulates inflammation, decreases scar tissue formation and enhances healing.

Is Stem Cell Therapy covered by insurance?

In most cases, stem cell therapy is not covered by insurance. If the patient has an employer-sponsored Flexible Payment Medical Savings Account, then the procedure could be covered through that account.
