Stem Cell Therapy for Knee and Other Joint Pain in Atlanta
Non-Surgical Joint Regeneration Treatment for Knee, Shoulder, Spine, and Hip Pain
Stem cell therapy promotes the body’s natural healing mechanisms by supplying new cells to help the body repair injured tissue in the joints. Stem cell therapy can help alleviate pain caused by joint damage from a sports injury or wear and tear from conditions such as osteoarthritis. When first-line treatments fail, stem cell therapy gives patients another option for joint pain relief and may prevent the need for surgery.
At Atlanta Men’s Clinic, in conjunction with Springs Rejuvenation, we are at the forefront of stem cell therapy technology. Our stem cell methods do not require the use of embryonic tissue. We use umbilical cord tissue (Wharton’s jelly) that contains adult mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). We treat joint pain in both men and women.

What are Mesenchymal Stem Cells?
Mesenchymal stem cells are adult stem cells found in the blood vessels of connective tissue (the mesenchyme) like fat, cartilage, bone marrow, and Wharton’s jelly (human umbilical cord tissue).
How Can Stem Cell Therapy Repair Joint Damage Without the Need for Surgery?
Numerous studies show that stem cell therapy using Wharton’s jelly mesenchymal stem cells is effective in treating joint injuries, like cartilage damage in the knee and osteoarthritis in the hip.1,2,3 MSCs secrete materials called exosomes that aid in repairing damaged tissue. Based on observations from numerous studies, exosomes are thought to:
- Reduce inflammation to promote tissue repair and regeneration
- Inhibit cell death (apoptosis)
- Facilitate the development of new blood vessels (angiogenesis)
Stem cell therapy for the treatment of joint pain and injury is a non-surgical treatment that may help patients:
- Deter the need for joint replacement surgery
- Avoid possible complications associated with surgery
- Reduce the amount of time needed to recover from pain and/or injury
Stem Cell Therapy as an Option for Eczema, Psoriasis, and Other Conditions
Recent studies show the positive effects of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for inflammatory and allergic skin disorders, such as psoriasis and eczema. Eczema and psoriasis both develop as the result of inflammation caused by an overreaction of the immune system. Studies show that MSCs contain both anti-inflammatory and immune moderating properties that help treat the symptoms of psoriasis and eczema.4,5
In addition to repairing joint damage and treating inflammatory skin disorders, research also suggests that mesenchymal stem cells may help treat:
- Cardiovascular disease and heart failure
- Type 2 diabetes
- Autoimmune diseases
- Degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease
Stem Cell Facial Rejuvenation for Men and Women in Atlanta
Facial Rejuvenation With Stem Cell Facelift / Facial
Aging can cause wear and tear of the body, but perhaps the most notable signs of aging are seen on the face. At Atlanta Men’s Clinic, we offer stem cell facial rejuvenation treatments for men and women.
Restore elasticity and smoothness of the skin without surgery, using a natural alternative to dermal fillers. Stem cells support collagen production, improving irregularities of the skin caused by aging and exposure to the sun and pollution. Stem cell facial rejuvenation treatment restores:
- Texture and overall tone of the skin (makes the skin more radiant)
- Skin color (improves signs of sun exposure)
- Contour and shape of the face (reduces and smooths out wrinkles)
At Atlanta Men’s Clinic, our stem cell facelift procedure is a microneedling technique that lasts approximately 40 minutes. A local anesthetic cream is applied to the face to minimize pain during the procedure. Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions to follow after the procure.

Is Stem Cell Therapy Right for You?
If you have acute or chronic joint pain and have not found relief from first-line treatments such as physical therapy and/or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, stem cell therapy is an alternative non-surgical treatment option.
Joint pain can occur for numerous reasons: injury, normal wear and tear, sports, and chronic arthritic conditions, to name a few. Stem cell therapy provides a non-surgical solution to pain relief, and may even regenerate damaged tissue in the joints.
At Atlanta Men’s Clinic, we provide stem cell therapies to both men and women looking to treat joint pain, find relief from skin conditions like psoriasis, and restore a youthful look with stem cell facials.
