- Why Dr. Sheinkop
Dr. Sheinkop, our Des Plaines and Chicago, IL, knee cellular orthopedic specialist, offers cellular orthopedic treatment for knee pain. Stem cell therapy procedures are breakthrough, non-surgical cellular orthopedic treatments for people suffering from knee pain. This can be due to common injuries to the knee meniscus, ACL or MCL, or cartilage. People may also have knee pain who are experiencing degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis.
Traditional options for patients suffering from these conditions include arthroscopic knee surgery to repair ligament tears, or total knee joint replacement. With both surgeries, months of rehab are required, and the patient must be aware of and prepared to take on the risks. As an alternative, the stem cell procedure may help alleviate knee pain or heel pain and the conditions that cause it with a simple office injection procedure.
Stem Cells are in all of us, and they are responsible for healing injured bone, ligaments, tendons, and tissues. They are the key component behind the procedures at Dr. Sheinkop. As we get older or injured, we sometimes cannot get enough of these cells into the area in need. Stem cell therapy helps solve that problem by precisely delivering a high concentration of stem cells and growth factors into the injured area, aiding your body’s ability to heal naturally. Patients typically avoid the long, painful rehabilitation periods to restore joint strength and mobility following surgery. Stem cell patients are usually encouraged to walk the same day, and most experience little or no down-time from the procedure.
The procedure begins when the doctor thoroughly numbs the back of the hip (PSIS) and takes a small bone marrow sample through a needle, as well as a blood draw from a vein in the arm. The marrow is rich in Mesenchymal Stem Cells, which are responsible for healing damaged tissues. The stems cells are isolated from the marrow sample, and platelets are isolated from the blood sample. After preparation, these two components will be reinjected directly into the damaged area of the joint using advanced imaging guidance. This ensures the cells are delivered to the exact location of need.

Blood Platelet Procedures offer the most advanced, non-surgical treatments available for individuals with common hip injuries, hip arthritis, avascular necrosis, and other hip problems. In many cases, cellular orthopedic treatment is a viable treatment alternative for individuals who may be considering elective hip surgery or hip replacement surgery.
Due to the nature of the hip and its associated nerves, reasons for hip pain are widely misdiagnosed, and hip surgery is frequently presented to patients as the only option to resolve their pain. In cases where hip surgery may be warranted, it is up to the patient to understand the risks and determine if it is the best course of action for them. As a non-surgical alternative, stem cell hip procedure patients have experienced excellent results in complex hip injuries and advanced degenerative hip conditions, such as osteoarthritis and avascular necrosis.
Hip surgery is traumatic and may require months of painful rehabilitation to regain strength and motion. Alternatively, stem cell procedures may help heal and alleviate hip problems with a same-day stem cell or platelet injection procedure. Dr. Sheinkop’s patients benefit from little or no downtime from the procedure and avoid the wide range of problems that often follow more invasive surgeries.
