The human body is made up of billions of specialized cells that form specific organs and tissues, like the brain, skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and bone. Each day these cells go through a degenerative and regenerative process. As older cells die, new cells are born from stem cells, whose unique capability is being able to create multiple types of other cells. However, when tissues are injured, the degenerative process exceeds this regenerative process, resulting in structures that become weaker, painful and less functional. The opposite effect occurs when stem cells are placed into certain environments, as they can be transformed into healthy functional cells or tissues. Currently, this innovative, non-invasive treatment is used to treat inflammation, especially that caused by arthritis. Dr. Escobar uses stem cell therapy in his Pembroke Pines clinic.
