What are Exosomes?
The cells of all mammals send out small “messengers” called Exosomes. These messengers take mRNA and other information to others cells and tissues in the body. When Exosomes are sent out of stem cells they carry packets of information that they then transfer to other cells and tissues. It is believed that the regeneration of healthy tissues is actually caused by the Exosomes left over from stem cells.
What Conditions are commonly treated with Exosomes Therapy?
What happens during the procedure?
Exosomes will be administered through an injection into the joint. The injection will be done under an ultrasound or fluoroscopy machine to ensure that the target area is being reached.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure usually takes about an hour.
What happens after the procedure is over?
Most patients will be able to walk out of the clinic the same day with a bandage on the injection site. The procedure should be relatively painless for the patient. Patients should start to see initial results within 3-4 months. However, because everyone heals differently, it’s not uncommon for patients to see results 9-10 months after treatment.
After the injection it is important to not take anti-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen and Aspirin. These medications may block the effects of the Exosomes. Research has shown that Exosome injections are safe and have a minimal risk for adverse events or infections
