Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is an advanced medical treatment also known as amnion therapy. This unique and revolutionary medical treatment uses your body’s natural healing abilities to treat damage and disease instead of invasive, expensive, or risky surgical procedures.

Amnion therapy can treat a wide range of conditions, such as:

  • Joint damage due to arthritis, especially in the knees, hips, and shoulders
  • Meniscal tears and other types of damage to the knee joint and soft tissue
  • Shoulder injuries, like labral tears
  • Ligament and tendinitis strains
  • Muscle and soft tissue injuries
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Foot and heel pain, including plantar fasciitis


Dr. Vengurlekar and his team at Premier Pain Institute are world leaders in stem cell therapy and rely on this cutting-edge approach to repair damage caused by injury and disease that was previously irreversible.

How does stem cell therapy work?

Stem cell therapy relies on the distinct cells in your body that can transform into any type of cell in your body. These cells are considered building blocks and exist in several areas of your body, including:

  • Fat and bone tissue
  • Placenta
  • Uterine amniotic fluid during pregnancy


After harvesting your stem cells, Dr. Vengurlekar prepares them and injects them into your pain site. Once in place, they trigger new, healthy cells to generate in the area. When these cells appear, they replace those with damage or disease.

What can I expect from stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy at Premier Pain Institute is a simple, outpatient procedure. During your appointment, Dr. Vengurlekar injects your stem cell material into your treatment site. Their stem cell solution also contains a naturally occurring substance, hyaluronic acid, which also works to lubricate painful tendons and joints.

After your stem cell treatment, you can expect increased mobility and function as well as reduced pain as new tissue generates and inflammation decreases. In most cases, this occurs over several weeks with maximum benefits within a month.

To see if stem cell therapy can help you experience life as you use to without the need for harmful narcotics, call Premier Pain Institute or schedule an appointment online.
