The products are rigorously tested before and after cell birth. They follow strict FDA guidelines to ensure their safety.

Post Op Questions and Answers

Rehabilitation
Post-Op Instructions for Joints

The stem cell injection includes producing a micro injury in the joint. As a result, expect the joint to be sore. This can be everything from minimally sore to very sore.

Activity:

The goal is to allow the stem cells to attach and then to protect them while they differentiate into cartilage. For this reason, you’ll be asked to keep the joint as still as possible for 30-60 minutes after the procedure. Do not take a bath for three days, but a shower 12 hours after the procedure is fine.

1st – 3rd Day: For the first day, you should limit activity on the joint. If you have post-op soreness this may be easy to do, as you may have a natural limp or “antalgic” gait (your body does this to reduce pressure on the area to allow healing). If you don’t have this, then simply, naturally taking a bit of weight off this area as you walk is a good idea this first day. Avoid all contact sports as well as jogging, running, or sports that involve impact on that joint.

4th Day – 2nd Week: You can start to walk normally, no more than 30-60 minutes a day. Avoid all contact sports as well as jogging, running, or sports that involve impact on that joint. Bike riding is fine as are stationary bikes (no up/downs), elliptical machines, and swimming (no breast stroke).

3rd-6th Week: Avoid all contact sports as well as jogging, running, or sports that involve impact on that joint. You can walk as much as you like. Bike riding is fine, as are stationary bikes, elliptical machine, and swimming.

After the 6th Week: Start integrating back all desired activities, adding back 20% per week. For example, if you were used to running 10 miles a week, you would start at 2 miles a week, then the next week add back another 2 miles, and so on…

Medications:

You can’t take anti-inflammatory drugs such as Motrin, Aleve, Ibuprofen, or similar NSAIDs. These need to be avoided for 6-12 weeks after the procedure. In addition, any other drugs you have been asked to avoid, should also be stopped for the same time period. Please review the Medication Restriction sheet sent previously. Most statin cholesterol lowering drugs will move stem cells toward producing bone, which is not what we want here, so these need to be avoided for 6-12 weeks. Steroid medications (such as steroid based asthma inhalers, oral steroids, or steroid injections into the joint or another joint) will dramatically impair stem cell function, so these are to be avoided as well.

Pain: If you have pain from the procedure, this should resolve within the first 1-3 weeks. If it does not, contact your clinic doctor. Tylenol is acceptable to take.

Alcohol and Marijuana: Alcohol can have profound negative impacts on stem cell function, so this should be avoided for the same 6-12 weeks. A glass of red wine or white wine with dinner is not a problem, but more than that could pose a risk to the cells. Cannaboids such as Marijuana can also promote bone formation over cartilage (not what we want in this case), so should be avoided.

Dr. Neel Amin

i was scheduled to have total hip replacement when I met Dr. Neel Amin and there was something about the level of care that he took about me and my condition that I decided to postpone surgery and follow Dr. Amin’s advice. Since, I have met with Dr. Amin a couple of times and I have been very happy with the level of care, respect and understanding expressed by Dr. Amin and the entire staff at the center. I have not begun with my Stem Cell treatment as of yet because he explained about the importance to alleviate my pain and symptoms before injecting stem cells. I feel so much better with regards to pain and mobility that I am very excited to see results from Stem Cell Therapy in the near future.

I came back from a trip to NYC, with horrible pain in my right shoulder. About 3 year ago I had rotator cuff surgery on the left shoulder and couldn’t believe that it happened again. I was seeing Dr Amin for my scheduled back procedure and told him about the shoulder. The “shoulder Dr ” couldn’t see me for almost 6-8 weeks. Dr Amin ordered a MRI, and confirmed the torn rotator cuff diagnosis.
We discussed treatments and he told me about PRP, how its done and the possible help it might give me. I decided to trust his judgement and had it done.
Well, by the time I saw the other Dr, I had almost forgotten how bad the pain had been. He was pleased with the result that I had from Dr Amin’s treatment. Its been over 6 months and the pain is barely evident.
I am so happy to be on going patient with Dr Amin. His cutting edge treatments, knowledge and expertise is second to none.

For years, maybe because I’m very tall, I have had a bad pain in my hip when I sit too long. As it turns out, my job is sitting at the computer all day. So, I had to work out a way to manage the pain. A friend suggested Dr. Neel Amin in Fort Lauderdale. I went expecting to get medicine or a shot. Instead, what I got was a plethora of pain management ideas, including one that interested me the most, stem cell rejuvenation therapy. After years of pain, I’m finally not afraid to do the work sitting on my desk daily. Thank you Dr. Amin for all of your help. Your staff is also amazing.
