Stem Cell Technologies for Surgery

TEXARKANA, Texas, June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- A new breakthrough in adult stem cell technology has three Texarkana neurosurgeons leading their industry by utilizing concentrated stem cells for spine surgery. The innovative technique is improving the desired results of surgical interventions for back pain. Leading researchers in the orthopedic and spine industry are predicting the latest developments in this field of medicine will become mainstream practice and, potentially, a standard of care for surgical treatments of severe back pain.

Dr. Lee Buono, Dr. Freddie Contreras, and Dr. J. Brett Dietze of Texarkana Neurological Associates are utilizing the new procedure that harnesses the healing potential of adult stem cells from a patient's own body. During surgeries for the neck and back, bone marrow is extracted from the hip through a small incision. The marrow is processed by an FDA-approved device and the living cells are delivered back to the surgeon in a concentrated dose to be implanted back into a patient to promote healing.

"We pride ourselves on our ability to offer the latest medical technology, right here in Texarkana. Improving our patient's quality of life is our number-one focus. This procedure is on the cutting edge of regenerative spine surgeries; it is a resource that must be considered as a standard for healing," Dr. Buono said. Dr. Dietze adds, "Biological graft materials have become a standard accessory in neurosurgery - autologous iliac crest autograft being the gold standard. Autologous bone graft is likely traumatic and time-consuming. My personal commitment to my patients to offer the most current advancements and treatment options is also an expectation held unanimous by Texarkana Neurological Associates. This surgical approach is without arguments on the cutting edge; the potential outcomes utilizing this technology may create an option for even the most
