On April 22nd, Dr. Swanson was a guest on Channel 8 News Midday to discuss the importance of orthopedists providing patients with information surrounding stem cell therapy for joint pain.
Stem Cell Therapy is a great alternative to joint replacement – ideal candidates are those who have tried conservative measures but may be too young to have joint replacement or otherwise not a candidate for joint replacement. Nebraska Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine has been performing Stem Cell Therapy for one and a half years now with great results. Our physicians isolate the patient’s own stem cells and inject them into the patient’s painful joint, where those stem cells can then differentiate and turn into cartilage to help heal the arthritic joint.
