Cartilage Replacement with Stem Cells

Dr. John Szivek, a researcher from the University of Arizona, is growing cartilage from stem cells. The process would utilize the patient’s own stem cells. The grown cartilage would be used to repair arthritic related damage, both small and large, and may one day eliminate the need to put plastics and/or metals in patient’s joints.

Dr. Szivek said, "We're hoping that by using a purer stem cell batch, we'll produce more consistent results and produce results that we can see in patients that have a lot of damage." Doctor Szivek goes on to say, “Side effects will be minimal, since it's the patient's own cells. They should recover faster, and the repair should last a lifetime.”

As regenerative engineering progresses, we believe the best stem cells to use in emerging treatments will be the patient’s own [autologous stem cells] as this negates the need to find a suitable donor and eliminates the chances of rejection of the transplanted tissue.
