Hip

Helping you to recover from hip pain and chronic hip conditions – without surgery.

Areas We Treat

London Stem Cell Centre is a regenerative medicine clinic offering minimally invasive, cellular treatments for orthopaedic conditions.

Our team of specialists offer stem cell treatments, plasma and steroid injections and shockwave therapy to stimulate your body’s own healing process – helping you to recover from injuries and ongoing musculoskeletal conditions with minimal intervention, aiming to supersede standard surgical procedures and help stimulate repair and improve function.

For more information on our regenerative treatments and how they can provide effective, long-term solutions to your hip problems, get in touch.

What Hip Conditions Can London Stem Cell Centre Help Treat?

Your hip is a ball and socket joint connecting your thigh bone (femur) to your pelvic girdle). The bones of this large, highly mobile joint are coated in a layer of slippery cartilage to aid with smooth movement and provide shock absorption. The hip joint supported and activated by a system of tendons, muscles and ligaments, while other soft tissues help with mobility and cushioning.

Any of these structures can get damaged through wear and tear, an impact or a wrenching injury. The result can be painful and debilitating, affecting your ability to move around.

You may have been told that a hip replacement or other hip surgery is the only option for resolving your hip pain. At London Stem Cell Centre, we offer a range of cellular treatments using your own body’s healing capabilities to help stimulate repair, reduce hip pain and get you back to full function.

Hip pain

Hip Stem cell therapy, adipose tissue transfer and platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment provide a non-surgical option for people with hip pain. The debilitating effects of hip pain can be the result of a number of conditions, including:

Hip arthritis

The socket of your hip bone is covered in a layer of smooth cartilage and surrounded by a labrum. The round top of your thigh bone (femur) is also coated in articular cartilage. Cartilage in your joints can get torn or worn away as a result of a traumatic injury (typically a wrenching or a side impact), due to repetitive activities, genetic bone misalignment or wear and tear over time. The exposed bone surfaces begin to degenerate, leading to inflammation in the joint, pain and stiffness – making walking increasingly difficult.

Treatment: our cellular therapies can help reduce the pain of arthritis and improve the mobility of your hip by using the growth and healing capabilities of your own cells such as PRP or BMAC.

Hip Tendinopathy

There are several tendons that attach your muscles to the bones of your hip to enable movement. Tiny tears in your tendons can occur as a result of an injury or damage to the bones and other structures of your hip (such as osteoarthritis) – leading to pain and difficulty walking. These micro tears lead to inflammation, muscle weakness and difficulty walking.

Treatment: a special concentrate of your blood plasma (PRP) can be injected to encourage healing and reduce the inflammation of the damaged tendons.

Labral Tear

The smooth cartilage that lines the socket around your hip bone is called the labrum. It can get torn as a result of wear and tear or a traumatic injury such as a wrenching action or a side impact. A torn labrum can catch on to other structures in the bone, causing pain, inflammation and reduced range of motion. It can also lead to osteoarthritis.

Treatment: cartilage has a low blood supply, so a damaged labrum rarely heals on its own. Cellular therapy uses the stem cells from your bone marrow (BMAC), along with the healing properties in your adipose cells and platelet-rich plasma injections (PRP) to encourage the healing of these tears.
