Hip Replacement Procedure Utilizes Autologous Stem Cells.

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Jun 12, 2014 9:23:21 AM

Scientists have utilized stem cells to aid in artificial hip replacement.

Doctors and Scientist at the Southampton General Hospital have successfully completed a hip transplant by using a titanium socket and a bone scaffold loaded with skeletal stem cells. The team, led by orthopedic surgeon Douglas Dunlap, 3D printed the titanium implant, and then added the bone graft filled with stem cells to the pelvis to encourage bone regrowth behind and around the metal replacement.

Although this treatment is, in itself, a new advance in regenerative orthopedic therapy, it is only a stepping stone towards the ultimate goal of creating an entire hip bone from a patient’s own stem cells. Studying the behavior of the stem cells in the bone graft of this experiment will help the researchers develop a fully functioning biological hip replacement that is superior to using metal replacement parts.
