At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics in Williamsville, NY, Dr. Jack Bertolino helps patients in the community look and feel amazing, and with regenerative medicine solutions such as intraarticular joint injections, patients can address common complaints of joint pain from conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or sports injuries. Treatment for these conditions is addressed by combining platelet-rich plasma and ALMI fat stem cells.
What can I expect from my intra articular joint injection visit?
First and foremost, Dr. Jack Bertolino will evaluate a patient to determine if they would benefit from this treatment. A full medical history is evaluated to ensure that this treatment will be advantageous for the individual. Once patients have decided to move forward with the injections, they will need to undergo harvesting of the stem cells and the platelet-rich plasma. A minimally invasive liposuction procedure is used to extract fat from the patient’s abdomen to be used in harvesting the stem cells, while a blood draw is taken from the patient to help separate the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells and platelet-poor plasma. These harvested stem cells and PRP are then injected into the patient in the area of concern. Because the injectable is derived from the patient, there is no risk of allergic reactions. Additionally, there are no side effects as there may be with steroid shots or cortisone shots commonly used in a similar manner.
Is this treatment effective?
Absolutely! Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics in Williamsville, NY has found that many patients benefit greatly from this procedure and will find it to be an effective way to address many joint pain conditions that can impact one’s daily quality of life. Patients can use these injections repeatedly over time to maintain the results they achieved after their first injection with Dr. Jack Bertolino.
