Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy

If you have nagging, aching pains in your feet or ankles that won’t go away despite multiple conservative treatments, we have a non-surgical, option for you.

Regenerative medicine is the newest conservative treatment modality, and it is now available at Lexington Podiatry.

What Conditions Benefit?

By using minimally manipulated amniotic tissue, we can resolve the aches and pains:

Why Choose Regenerative Medicine?

One of the reasons stem cell recruitment therapy, along with other regenerative medicine techniques like PRP, is so attractive to patients is because it’s natural and doesn’t involve the hassle and risk of going to the operating room.

This treatment usually consists of nothing more than a simple injection. An amniotic fluid injection is used for long term healing options and not used to mask the pain.

Using different techniques, we can almost eliminate any pain you might feel. The goal is to give patients high quality care with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Many patients don’t realize that stem cell recruitment therapy is a procedure that is now covered by most insurance plans, which means little to no out of pocket expense for you.

The Amniotic Fluid is obtained duringfull-term cesarean births from healthy donors who have volunteered their placenta and amniotic fluid. Donation does not require fetal sacrifice.

Absolutely amazing staff! Smiling faces, compassion and understanding! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

I was frankly shocked at how good they were at EVERYthing. They saw me less than 2 hours after I called. Dr. Barko was ebullient and professional. You can ask them questions via TXT, which is huge. Their offices are spic-n-span and modern. Basically, they're knocking it out of the park. I don't wish for more in-grown toenails, but if it happens, I'm going straight back to Lexington Podiatry.

I love Lexington Podiatry! The staff is always so helpful, and attentive. I love Dr. Freels. She is top notch, and is always so happy to see me, and listens to me about what is going on.

Dr. Carter diagnosed and created a treatment plan in minutes- other podiatrists have treated me incorrectly for years. So pleased to have answers and solutions.

Katy Perkins

My left foot had been hurting for a while. The staff and doctors here are all quite knowledgeable and professional, as well as friendly and personable. My diagnosis was promptly made, x-ray completed right there in the office, and I left with the two braces that I needed. No waiting for the mail, trip to brace shop, nada. Most excellent clinic!
