About the video: How often can I have regenerative therapy injections?

Summit Orthopedics’ experts Steven Stulc, D.O. and Kirk Scofield, M.D. explain why there really is no limitation for repeated regenerative medicine treatments.

Meet Steven Stulc, D.O.

Dr. Stulc’s approach: “My goal is to treat patients with a comprehensive approach to their spine related disorders, understanding that improving pain and function can have a tremendous impact on quality of life.”

Dr. Stulc’s education: Dr. Stulc studied at Southwestern Minnesota State University in Marshall, MN for his undergraduate degree, and he completed his medical degree at Des Moines University in Des Moines, IA. Following his residency in the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation program at Mayo Clinic, he completed advanced fellowship training in Interventional Pain Medicine at Penn State University’s Department of Anesthesiology in Hershey, PA.

Meet Kirk Scofield, M.D.

Dr. Scofield’s education: Dr. Scofield completed his undergraduate studies at Seattle Pacific University in Seattle, Washington. He attended medical school and received his degree from the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, Washington. His residency was at North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley, Colorado.

Video Transcription

The interesting part about regenerative medicine is that everybody’s different. Everyone has a different concentration of cells, has a different quality of cells, so their amount of healing is different. The initiation of pain relief typically depends on what product we’re using and what body part we’re putting it into. But, for an example, say the knee, with bone marrow aspirate concentrate, we may not be seeing any relief of knee pain until about the four- to six-week mark. By 12 weeks, things should be fairly maximally kicked in, but people can get a delayed benefit even from 12 weeks up to three or four months. Our hope is, with arthritic joints, that they might be able to get pain relief upwards of two years or more.
