If you have an injury or pain in your hand or wrist from ligament or tendon sprains or tear, or due to osteoarthritis, you may be a candidate for our SmartChoice® Joint Procedures.

SmartChoice® Joint Procedures provide excellent alternatives to most patients facing wrist or hand surgery. Wrist and hand surgeries can be complicated and painful. Besides the risks and cost of the surgeries, a long rehabilitation is usually required. Many a times the functionality never completely returns after these surgeries, which can be a very important factor if you are music instrument player, or have severe arthritis.

At SmartChoice® Stem Cell Institute, we are leading non-surgical specialist for chronic wrist and hand pain and injuries from:

We play a key role in this cutting-edge stem cell medical field. While many types of stem cells are currently used in orthopedic healing, the most common are mesenchymal stem cells and hematopoietic stem cells to help regenerate tissue and rebuild cartilage, muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Because it is now possible to induce pluripotency in cells that have not come from embryos, the controversial use of embryonic stem cells has fallen on the way side and in the favor of the accessible cells found within the patient’s own body.

Patients coping with arthritis, sports injuries, tendon strains, sprained ligaments, muscle injuries and more, will be comforted to know that surgery is not the only option of treatment available to them. Faster healing as well as improved functionality both are possible with innovative, cutting- edge adult stem cell and PRP procedures.
