Stem Cell Therapy for Joint Injuries – Advanced Options for Individuals in the Freehold, NJ, Area
Stem cell therapy is an innovative treatment that can be used to address chronic pain and limited mobility caused by a damaged knee, hip, or shoulder. The specialists at New Jersey Joints in Freehold, NJ, have the skills, experience, and technology necessary to effectively address joint injuries using this type of conservative treatment. We utilize a full range of progressive, non-operative techniques, including stem cell and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments. And, when surgery is required, our board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons perform minimally invasive procedures to help our patients get back on their feet and out into the world both quickly and safely.
The joint specialists at New Jersey Joints emphasize the use of conservative treatments for joint damage whenever possible, reserving surgery as a last resort. For instance, we treat many patients with stem cell therapy, which uses adult stem cells (not embryonic stem cells) to promote the regeneration of tissue in joints that have deteriorated due to:
- Injuries such as meniscal, labral, and rotator cuff tears
- Repetitive stress
- Age-related degeneration
Stem cell therapy involves a process known as autologous transplantation, through which stem cells are harvested from a patient’s own body, processed immediately, and then injected into a damaged joint. This procedure is noninvasive and can be performed during a single appointment in the comfort of our main office in Freehold, NJ, where we have a state-of-the-art fluoroscopy suite onsite. While individual results can vary, some patients experience symptom improvement, including reduced joint pain and inflammation, in as little as one week after a stem cell treatment – without having to face the risks and complications that typically accompany surgery.
At New Jersey Joints in Freehold, NJ, we are committed to educating our patients so they can make fully informed healthcare decisions.

As a one-stop facility for both physician appointments and physical therapy, our goal is to ensure a streamlined and meaningful experience for each patient.
