Texas Teen Opts for Stem Cell Therapy, Hopes of Enlisting in Military
Date:5/13/2010

KYLE, Texas, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Sergio Lopez, 18, of Kyle, Texas, recently underwent a new treatment using his own bone marrow-derived stem cells in lieu of traditional surgery to repair a broken bone in his arm that would not heal. Traditional treatment for his pathology, known as a non-union, is to implant a device, such as a screw or plate. It's this implantation that deterred Lopez from receiving the surgery.

"I have been planning on enlisting in the Army and I didn't want to have any metal implanted in my arm," said Lopez. "My surgeon, Dr. Sheely, suggested stem cell therapy as an option. It sounded like a good idea so we went for it."

Dr. Christina Sheely, of Southwest Orthopedic Group, first met Lopez in February. When she learned he wanted to enlist in the military, she suggested stem cell therapy as an effective alternative to traditional surgery.

"The use of a patient's own stem cells has been shown to effectively grow bone, specifically in non-unions, such as Sergio's," said Sheely. "I was pleased that I was able to offer a treatment that wouldn't keep him from doing what he wanted in life."

The procedure took 2 hours from start to finish. During the procedure, bone marrow is aspirated from the iliac crest (pelvis), and then processed in a cell concentration system. The system, from Austin-based biotech company, Celling Technologies, concentrates bone marrow allowing the desired cells to be delivered back to the patient. The surgeon is then able to deliver a cocktail of wound-healing cells directly back to the injured site. These cells will release growth factors, immune responses and have the potential to develop into
