Using an FDA-patented technique of harvesting patients’ own stem cells, Dr. Spencer has experience in the world of treating both spinal cord injury and degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine. Candidates for this treatment have severe neurological deficits, and not all patients will pass our strict screening process to receive this treatment.
During adult stem cell implantation, we take around 100 cc of tissue from the patient to be processed in order to abstract the stem cells. These will then be injected above and below the site of the injury. We will continue to monitor progress after this procedure has been administered.
