Stem Cells

Regeneration is a beautiful word. In medical parlance it refers to the process of coaxing the body into restoring itself. What used to be the stuff of science fiction has moved into the mainstream of pain management in today’s world. In particular, we’re talking about stem cell therapy, which is a non-surgical method that involves injecting a sample of your own stem cells into injured or arthritic joints. These building block mega cells encourage the body to heal itself.

How Does This Stuff Work?
Stem cells are responsible for healing. Unfortunately, age and injuries sometimes create a local condition that prevents enough of these types of cells from getting to where they are needed. stem cell therapy involves harvesting stem cells from other parts of the body and injecting them directly into the injured joint. Dr. Kaufman has seen incredible results in healing of damage done to ligaments, tendons, cartilage, tissue, and even bone. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. Pain is generated by a breakdown in the ability of the body to heal itself. Provide the right cells and, voila, watch the truly miraculous happen in front of your eyes.

Stem cell therapy is normally given by three injections spread over two to five days. If your consultation reveals you to be a good candidate for this procedure, there’s a good chance for a full recovery that involves less downtime and rehabilitation than is possible under older treatment methods.

While your evaluation is likely covered by traditional insurance, the stem cell procedure itself is not paid for by Medicare and some other insurance companies. Check with your insurer to find out whether or not you qualify.

Patient Testimonials

  • "I've suffered with back pain ever since my back surgery. Due to Dr. Kaufman and his non-surgical, non-invasive spinal injections, my pain has been greatly alleviated. It saved me another trip back to the operating room"
    Donna Franchetti Patient
  • "After spine surgery that did not relieve my pain I was referred to Dr. Seth Kaufman. He gave me his full attention and patiently listened, with empathy, to all my concerns and made me feel as though I was his only patient. Dr. Kaufman has managed my back pain, effectively, for many years. My only regret is that I did not meet him prior to surgery. I have complete confidence and recommend him to anyone without reservation."
    Sharon James Patient
  • "I'm a patient of Dr. Seth Kaufman's. For several years he has really helped me relieve the pain in my back and my legs. I've received several shots from him and they have really helped me. He is always available and he is very compassionate. I would highly recommend him."
    Ann Robinson Patient
  • " I was referred to Dr. Kaufman by my primary care physician, thank God, and he has helped me tremendously with pain after my back surgery, extensive back surgery, when I was left with more pain then I got rid of. Through his injections and use of topical ointments most of the pain has gone away. He is still helping me and still trying to get rid of the rest of it."
    Mary Wilson Patient

    Robin Fisher
  • "Dr. Seth Kaufman, I cannot say enough wonderful things. This man saved my life from pain. He is dedicated and wonderful and I don't know what I would do without him. I would like to adopt him as my son, but so does everyone else who knows him. He truly keeps the pain out of my body."
  • "I was referred to Dr. Kaufman about 10 years ago. I was scheduled to have back surgery due to herniated discs in my lower back. Dr. Kaufman suggested injections and I took his advice. He administered several injections and I've been pain free for over 10 years, with no surgery needed and Dr. Kaufman continues to be my doctor. He's very, very knowledgeable and an expert in his field and I thank him very, very much."
  • "I had severe back pain. It started out of the blue and I felt it going down my leg. I am a spine surgeon myself and I have been caring for patients with these pains for years – I knew exactly what the problem was as soon as I obtained an MRI – I had a herniated disk - and I could not see myself taking care of patients with this horrible pain. Doctor Kaufman gave me 2 epidural steroid injections and I went back to work the same day with no pain. Most patients do not need spine surgery and if you are like me, try to avoid surgery. The best way to avoid surgery is with a properly targeted transforaminal epidural steroid injection, done in a modern safe manner – “transforaminal”. This applies to both neck and back pain. I recommend Dr. Kaufman to all my patients and my family. Call him and he will help you without surgery."
