Soccer Star Luis Suarez Scores with Stem Cells

Luis Suarez, a star of FC Barcelona, will undergo a stem cell treatment to alleviate pain in his knee and prevent further injury. Suarez has been dealing with intermittent spurs of pain, and a traumatic crash during a recent match exacerbated his injury and may have sidelined him for several weeks. However, Suarez’s stem cell treatment should have him back on the field in approximately 2-week's-time.

The treatment involves recovering the patient’s own stem cells (in this case mesenchymal stem cells - the same type of stem cells found in teeth), concentrating them and injecting them into the site of the injury to accelerate healing, decrease inflammation and eliminate the need for surgical intervention.

Suarez is not the first prominent athlete to receive this type of treatment, as both Cristiano Ronaldo and Rafael Nadal have also undergone this type of treatment for similar injuries. Stem cell therapies are redefining how common athletic injuries are treated, with cases like these underscoring the wisdom for athletes to bank their stem cells, should they need them to treat future injuries.

To learn more about stem cells, and how families can bank their own valuable stem cells by recovering the very powerful dental pulp stem cells during routine dental procedures; such as wisdom teeth extractions or the during the loss of baby teeth, visit StemSave or call 877-783-6728 (877-StemSave) today.
