Stem Cell And Biologic Therapy

Here at MFAS (Massachusetts Foot & Ankle Specialists) and NHFAS (New Hampshire Foot & Ankle Specialists) we are always striving to provide the safest, most innovative and effective therapy for all your foot and ankle problems.

Traditionally, cortisone therapy has been the standard in treatment of several, acute and chronic condition of the foot and ankle such as plantar fasciitis, arthritis of the joints and also tendinitis. Unfortunately, we now know that in this therapy, although safe and effective as a diagnostic technique and a short term pain relief option is not necessarily the best solution long term.

Cortisone acts to override and mute the body’s natural inflammatory process that the body needs in order to prepare the body for healing and regeneration of tissue. However, cortisone alters healing and changes the healing pathway by encouraging the formation of scar like, very weak tissue which is prone to re injury and continued flare ups of the pain. Specifically cortisone injection to the Achilles Tendon should be avoided at all costs.

Stem Based and Biologic Therapy is a much safer and more effective modality. It aims at stimulating and amplifying your body’s own healing pathways and actually promoting regeneration of new and healthy tissue by providing the body with all the naturally occurring cytokines and growth factors needed for healing and regeneration of tissue. It is absolutely safe and extremely effective.

The therapy is usually delivered via injection in the office or in the case of surgery, we apply it directly as either a graft type product of injection as well. It will require a short period of having the foot and ankle in an offloading and protective boot and typically a few sessions of physical therapy.

If you or a loved one are suffering from a chronic or non healing foot and ankle problems, we invite your to call and schedule a consultation with Dr. Pasquale Cancelliere at either of our office locations to help you heal your pain and get back in stride!
