What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Science that benefits everybody starts with understanding the power of regenerative medicine with stem cell therapy. That is, it’s cooperative nature. As your body loses its ability to repair itself, Dr. Burke Orthopedics, in conjunction with Predictive Biotech’s products, cooperate with your body’s natural functions to help supplement, cushion and provide support right where it’s needed. Whether you’re 18 or 68, it’s about aiding your ideal regenerative environment in the least invasive or disruptive way possible.
Stem cells are basic cells with the potential to adapt for any function in the body. All cells start as stem cells that eventually go on to specialize in various tissues and organs. Stem cells are all natural. They thrive from birth to adulthood. Stem cells from a person’s own anatomy are known as autologous stem cells. Autologous stem cells are an internal source of unused cells. New studies show stem cells have long-term benefits for natural healing and regenerative medicine. As a result, physicians worldwide use stem cells for orthopedics and sports medicine. Stem cell therapy is gaining popularity due to the fast recovery and no down time following treatment. Stem cells regenerate and reproduce for all parts of the body. Therefore, both the autologous process and the allogeneic process can be used to heal injuries.
With Dr. Robert L. Burke’s treatment, stem cells grow into different tissues.
Over time our tissue can lose functionality due to age, injury, and disease. That can mean longer healing time, cellular aging and changing chemical environments. Fortunately, each person is born with building blocks capable of repairing and replenishing tissue. Through our research and understanding of these vital building blocks, Dr. Burke Orthopedics and Predictive Biotech aim to optimize the body’s ability to heal itself. With the right application, stem cells can grow into the following tissues:
- Blood Vessels
How Do Stem Cells Work?
Treatments that harness the power of stem cells are known as regenerative medicine, stem cell therapy, or stem cell transplants. Dr. Burke performs autologous stem cell therapy. This type of regenerative medicine requires no donor or surgeries, therefore making it a beneficial treatment option for many patients. Autologous stem cell enhancement with Dr. Burke Orthopedics is a series of small injections to the area of pain or damaged tissue. Dr. Burke harvests the stem cells from another part of the patient’s body then transplants the new cells, resulting in the stem cells developing as new tissues and organs that strengthen the body.
There are no limits to regenerative medicine. Orthopedic doctors are introducing new advantages and benefits of this medicine as technology advances. Dr. Burke recommends autologous stem cell therapy for many conditions such as arthritis, muscle loss, neuropathy, scarring, skin burns, sports injuries and more.

Is Stem Cell Treatment The Right Treatment for me?
There are many studies showing how stem cells help speed up recovery time for those who are treated. However, results vary from patient to patient. Although the science behind stem cells and how they work is becoming increasingly well-known and trusted throughout the medical community, there is still no way to quantitatively represent how they will impact each individual since every patient is unique. If you are certain that stem cell therapy is the right treatment for you based on a referral from a doctor or recommendation from another surgeon, the highly skilled Dr. Burke is a great choice for getting this procedure done.
With some of the most knowledgeable and highly-qualified surgeons in the industry, Dr. Burke has one of the highest success rates. This in part is due to making sure patients we accept as candidates go through a candidacy checking process, therefore ensuring the highest possible chances of the procedure benefiting the patient.
