Stem cell Therapy for Wrist & Hand
If you suffer from chronic or acute wrist or hand pain due to arthritis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome or injury, then you may benefit from physical therapy, traditional orthopedic care, non-surgical stem cell injections or even stem cell-enhanced surgery.
About the Wrist and Hand
Your wrist is made up of eight small bones known as carpals. They support a tube that runs through your wrist. That tube, called the carpal tunnel, has tendons and a nerve inside. It is covered by a ligament, which holds it in place.
Wrist pain is common. Repetitive motion can damage your wrist. Everyday activities like typing, racquet sports or sewing can cause pain, or even carpal tunnel syndrome. Wrist pain with bruising and swelling can be a sign of injury. The signs of a possible fracture include misshapen joints and inability to move your wrist. Some wrist fractures are a result of osteoporosis.
Other common causes of wrist or hand pain are sprains and strains, tendonitis, arthritis, gout and pseudo-gout.
What makes stem cell therapy at RMI different?
- Precision Fluoroscopic C-Arm Guidance for bone marrow harvesting with C-Arm and/or ultrasound guidance for treatment injections
- Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) with Vertical Axis Centrifuge
- Amniotic Tissue Product Developed By Dr. Riordan
At RMI, we are augmenting BMAC with a pliable tissue allograft (transplant) developed by Dr. Riordan. It is derived from human placental amnion, which functions as a biologic structural matrix to facilitate and enhance tissue healing and repair. It contains 108 different growth factors including more than 10 times the amount of WNT-4 and more than 60 times the amount of prostaglandin as competing products.
Prostaglandin inhibits inflammation, which occurs after injury and marks the beginning of the healing process. The faster we can tame this inflammation, the sooner the body can move on to the next phase of healing, regeneration.

*Amniotic tissue is donated after normal, healthy births. Once it has been fully tested for infectious diseases, sterility and a few other things, the tissue is processed by using proprietary methods developed by Neil Riordan, PhD.
