Advantages of Stem Cell Therapy
A medical procedure of using the stem cell to treat a disease or prevent it is called stem cell therapy. Bone marrow and the umbilical cord are some of the sources of the stem cells. The following points highlights the importance of stem cell therapy.
Firstly, the benefit of stem cell therapy is that it can be used in orthopedic injury treatment. Definition of orthopedic injuries is that they are injuries that negatively affect the musculoskeletal systems due to injuries caused to the bones and joints. One of the stem cells known to be used in many regenerative medicine clinics for the purposes of forming new cells is the mesenchymal stem cell. The reason for using mesenchymal extracted from the bone rather than the one produced by the bone marrow is to avoid inconveniencing the bone marrow which can result in health issues of the patient. On the same note, problems such as stubborn injuries, and chronic pains are treated and healed through orthopedic treatments such as bone repair.
Secondly, stem cell therapy is very crucial in treating some of the cardiovascular diseases. All the heart and blood vessel disorders are known as the cardiovascular disease. Thrombosis, coronary heart disease, peripheral heart disease, and rheumatic heart disease are some of the well-known cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular diseases are brought about by insufficient blood in various body organs such as heart and brain which result in oxygen deficiency in the affected body organs. There are numerous methods of treating cardiovascular disease via stem cell therapy. Reducing overstretch of cardiac cells, formation of heart muscles and blood vessel repair and faster formation of blood capillaries are some of the methods used by stem cell therapy to treat cardiovascular diseases. Embryonic stem, myoblast and umbilical cord are some of the stem cell therapy methods used in treating cardiovascular diseases.
Wounds and incision can be treated by using stem cell therapy. When the level of collagen production is improved in the body, wounds on the skin get repaired at a faster rate and in the process new hair also grow fast and incision after surgery.
Fourthly, the benefit of stem cell therapy is that it is an effective way of treating neurodegenerative diseases. These kinds of diseases affects the nerve cells that are found in the brain or affect the general functioning of the nervous system which may lead to the death of the patient. Stem cell therapy is important in neuron and cell regeneration and can be vital in treating neurodegenerative disease.
Fifthly, stem cell therapy is important in overcoming the disease that is known to reject the immune system such as diabetes. Immune system is known to sometimes attack and damage organs that produce essential hormones and other secretions like insulin. Ability of the stem cells to differentiate cells help to prevent the destruction of important hormones producing cells.
